You’ve heard all about Costa Rica’s famous biodiversity – and the tropical rainforest Sarapiqui Canopy is the place to experience it first-hand.
Home of the endangered green macaw, and a number of famous reserves including the Braulio Carrillo National Park, Sarapiqui’s river-filled fertile landscape is best discovered by boat cruise.
From the waterways you’ll spot monkeys, sloths, otters, turtles and all kinds of birds, including the quetzal.
Amazing tour, it was Costa Rica at its finest!
We had a great day on the river cruise and canopy tour. The guides and drivers were very nice and informative. We loved our canopy tour and had a very nice lunch. The only wildlife we saw were three crocs as we got rained out on the way back from zip lining. We would recommend this tour. All of the zip lining was done very safely. Might be nice to show photos of the very tall ladders so guests know what to expect as far as climbing to the landings. I was very shocked to see the heights we had to climb but feel wonderful that I did it all successfully.
Very fun but lots of climbing so be prepared for a work out good food and the boat ride is fun you get to see all kinds of animals even the snakes and butterflys are awesome
The base for boat excursions into the Sarapiqui Canopy is Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, at the junction of the Sarapiqui and Puerto Viejo rivers.
Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui is 80 km (50 miles) north of San Jose in Heredia province, a drive of around 2 hours. The only access is by road, and the most convenient way to visit is by organized tour.
