What You Can Expect
Meet a driver at your downtown La Fortuna hotel for a 7:30 am a departure, then make the 1-hour, 45-minute trip to Los Chiles, a small village close to the Nicaraguan border.
Upon arrival in Los Chiles, transfer to a motorboat to explore the wetlands, which are fed by the R?o Fr?o. Keep your eyes on the water throughout the tour, as caimans, fish, and even freshwater sharks can be spotted in the river.
White-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, and spider monkeys forage in the treetops, and the reserve is also an important stop for thousands of migratory birds that spend the winter in Ca?o Negro?s warm, shallow waters. At noon, pause along the river for a lunch of authentic Costa Rican cuisine, then head back to Los Chiles, watching for wildlife along the way. ?This tour concludes with a return transfer to La Fortuna, and drop-off at your hotel at roughly 3:30 pm.
