Relaxed nature float
kickenandbrian
, Feb 2020
This has been one of our favorite excursions so far in CR. A nice relaxed pace with a very knowledgeable guide made for a great float. A sloth, 2 species of monkey, lots of birds, a Jesus Christ lizard, just to name some of what we saw. We would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting to slow down and enjoy nature instead of zipping through it..
