This tour is a must-do! A scenic canoe trip up the river, then a fun swimming, climbing, exploring, and waterfall-jumping trip back down the river. Our tour guide Gabriel was great. Excellent!

We had an amazing time paddling up river and floating back down. The tour was great and one of the best outings we had during our month in Costa Rica.
