It was a peaceful float that allowed us to soak up the sights and sounds of the river and the forest surrounding it. Cato knew where to spot the wildlife. We saw toucans, bats, an emerald basilisk, iguanas, tropical birds, and howler monkeys.

My family loved floating down the beautiful river while our guide pointed out wildlife. We saw so many iguanas and monkeys, and enjoyed the brief stop for a snack of fresh fruit. We highly recommend this activity!
