Our specialty is combining paddling with an immersion into the natural Costa Rican environment. For more than 20 years, we have been guiding birdwatching trips throughout northern Costa Rica. And, for the past 14 years, we've also been guiding canoe trips in Costa Rica, Vermont USA, Canada, and Nicaragua. Enjoy nature while observing wildlife on the river banks of Costa Rica with our safari tours in your choice of canoe, raft or kayak in Penas Blancas River. Or you may prefer to enjoy a panoramic view of the majestic Arenal Volcano by joining our Lake Arenal by canoe tour. If you would you like explore the nature of Costa Rica by foot, we offer walks to very recognized natural destination tours like Rio Celeste Hike, Cerro Chato Hike, and the majestic Arenal Volcano.

We went on two different tours with Canoa Aventura. Both were fantastic, but we particularly enjoyed our Cerro Chato hike. My partner and I are in decent shape, but the hike kicked our butts-- in a good way. Our guide was fun and helpful, and...More

This tour was wonderful. We went on this tour and thought how we were fortunate to have Stephen as our guide. (He spoke great English, which was a help as my Spanish is not.) When we met up the other group that was joining us,...More
