Family Float Trip

Float through one of the most important biological stations in the world, La Selva, an organization for tropical studies. See a variety of animals, such as howler monkeys, iguanas, sloths, alligators, turtles, plus birds like tiger herons, toucans, hummingbirds, green macaw, and scarlet macaw. 

Learn how to row and increase your paddling abilities. Swim in the warm waters of the Sarapiqui River in natural pools below the rapids. 

Our knowledgeable, certified guides will teach you how to row the raft, maintain safety, and point out the beautiful flora and fauna to be seen along the way.
