  One of the many things to see on the Sarapiqui

A lovely relaxing few hours on the Rio Sarapiqui will show you lots and lots of great wildlife or a ride on the wildside by going on one of the white water rafting trips on a different section. This is a wonderful river to experience a rainforest from.

Birds, monkeys (mostly howler), bats (look closely or you will miss them-guide will help you find them), caimans, Iguanas, sloths, all there.

This trip can be done from any hotel in the Sarapiqui area or even from San Jose or Arenal. Often done as part of the highlight tour from San Jose which also includes Poas volcano, Doka coffee plantation, Selva Verde Lodge for lunch, La Paz waterfall, and the river tour of course. Again, most hotels can help you set this up.

Address: Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui
Directions: Just outside the center of town. A very small town so very easy to get to.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
