This clear water river is fed by the pristine waters of several private cloud forest reserves in Monteverde and is surrounded by lush rainforest, natural volcanic hot springs, waterfalls and forested canyons that measure upwards of 700 feet (213 m) in height. In other words, the Peñas Blancas River is an indisputable scenic adventure.
Much of the river is relatively calm, but parts boast class II through IV rapids. Most visitors to the river enjoy a calm safari float to take advantage of the hot springs, waterfalls and abounding wildlife which includes monkeys, sloths, river turtles, crocodiles, iguanas and many bird species.

Customer Reviewed My husband and I are lucky enough to have traveled to many places. Our Costa Rica trip was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. I was so impressed with how smooth all of our plans went. We look forward to returning in a few years.
