Nature Wildlife Tour and Tortilla Making

Arenal

This tour begins with a float Peñas Blancas Safari Float. Your float moves at a steady pace so you can soak it all in. Monkeys, birds, long-nosed bats gambol in the nearby trees. Watch in awe as Jesus Christ lizards skitter across the surface of the water.

After you reach the dock you’ll enter the warm, friendly atmosphere of Doña Maras’ home. Your hosts will greet you with a homemade drink made of pineapple, orange, and coconut water. Before lunch, you’ll learn how to prepare to tortillas. Doña Maras serve a large meal alongside the fresh tortillas, all prepared on her traditional, wood-fired stove. This is a culinary as well as an immersive cultural experience — feel free to practice your Spanish with the Maras family if you feel so inclined.
