Floating on the Peñas Blancas River is a relaxing way to start your day. Your guide will help you spot the animals hiding in the trees and along the banks of the river. On the float you can peer into the branches to see how many monkeys and sloths you can count. You’ll also have the chance to see river turtles, crocodiles, and iguanas. This float lasts a little over two hours, and the water in this part of the river is quite calm.
After the float your tour will continue to a nearby chocolate plantation. Your guides will show you what chocolate looks like before it’s harvested, and explain how they transform raw cacao into a smooth treat. This tour includes a taste of some freshly prepared chocolate.

Tennis or hiking shoes, a water bottle, raincoat, comfortable clothes, bug spray, swim suit, and a camera.

Learning something new is such a treat, especially on this tour. Discover the history behind two of the world's most common indulgences — coffee and chocolate. You will get to sample both, but more importantly, you will discover the history and production behind these agricultural staples. Whilst leading up to the tour, consider the fact that technically, neither of these crops is crucial to human survival. Yet, two of the world's luxury crops have become necessities. Can you imagine a world without either of them?
