Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge
Early morning pick up at your hotel (approx. 7:30 am) for a two hour drive to the north, to Caño Negro. The Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge and the Rio Frio are some of the most biologically diverse wetland areas in Costa Rica and some of the richest wildlife viewing and birding sites on this continent. This trip is a great variation from the normal Caño Negro day trip. Explore the refuge by canoe, and then paddle our canoes down the Rio Frio or Rio los patos.
Caño Negro Wildlife Refuge has an extension of about 10,000 hectares and is of interest especially to bird-watchers, but not only. It is also remarkable for its large population of endangered mammals, including jaguars, tapirs, and ocelots. There are always plenty of monkeys around. Crocodiles and caimans are easily seen.
Following a Picnic-Lunch, we continue by canoe, then return by bus to La Fortuna, arrival at approx. 6:00 p.m.
