What You Can Expect

Corobici River Float Tour and Las Pumas Jaguar Rescue Center

See jaguars in Costa Rica

Meet your guide at your hotel and then head to the Corobici River, where you will board a rubber raft for a floating group tour through the Costa Rican rainforest. This gentle course takes approximately two hours, allowing you to safely relax and admire the natural attractions while your experienced river guide navigates the waterway.

As you wend through the lush tropical forest, learn about the ecosystem that supports an abundance of wildlife. Your guide will inform you about fascinating animals, such as the many varieties of iguanas and monkeys that inhabit the region, as well as the flora that coexist with them. You’ll also likely spot birds such as ospreys, herons, egrets and mot mots.

After disembarking, enjoy lunch with your group and then head to Las Plumas Jaguar Rescue Center for a visit. At this private reserve, you’ll see different species of wildcats in their natural environment, as well as monkeys and birds such as parrots, pizotes and tucans.

Your guide will explain how the Hagnauer Foundation protects wild animals like Central American jaguars, which are rehabilitated at the center, before dropping you off at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

Our tour guide William was the absolute best!! Seen so many animals like crocodiles , the picture is not what the tour actually is, it's just a river float not rafting.


4 star rating: Recommended March 2014

We travelled with our 2 teenage daughters in March 2014. While it was a bit of a drive from our hotel in Tamarindo and there were delays due to other buses meeting us and highway construction, taking some time out of the 38 degree heat, in an air conditioned bus, wasn't such a bad thing. When we arrived at the river float, we felt safe, taken care of and our guide was very informative. We saw monkeys, crocs, lots of birds, iguanas and even snakes. The lunch was delicious and we got some fantastic pictures at the Jaguar sanctuary. We definitely felt it was worth our money and compared to many excursions you book in Costa Rica, the price was a very good deal. I will definitely add Viator.com to my vacation itinerary planning for all future holidays.
