White Water Rafting
This high-octane, half-day adventure begins when the Naranjo River drops steeply from the Costa Rican mountains and charges though pristine jungle gorges, then winds around rocky curves to take you on a wild, adventurous ride back to sea level waters.  While your internationally-trained, bilingual guides and safety kayakers work with you to navigate this exciting river, you’ll pass stunning farmland, working cattle ranches, and beautiful African Palm Plantations.
This is a 7 mile ride that keeps your adrenaline level high for several hours and is recommended for physically fit adventure seekers.  Water levels can rise rapidly on this Costa Rican river, especially during the green season (May-October), which increases the challenge.  After an adrenaline-filled trip, enjoy local snacks and refreshments before heading back to Manuel Antonio.  For less rapid and a more sedate ride, try the full day Savegre River Rafting adventure!

Canopy Zip Wire Tour
The adventure begins with an amazing journey through the rainforest out to our canopy site.  During the ride we learn about the flora and fauna of the area. Local bilingual guides have a vast knowledge of the area and love to share the many secrets that the rainforest holds with our clients.  The canopy site is located approximately forty-five minutes from Manuel Antonio, in an area called Paso Real.  Here we have a brand new ranch house with full facilities, located next to a pristine river, this is where we serve a full breakfast or lunch (depending on tour time). A spectacular river is the backdrop for these platforms carefully built in the canopy of the rainforest.  Clients are able to traverse from tree to tree and platform to platform using pulleys on horizontal cables, as they sail through the treetops of the tropical rainforest canopy, and over the trails far below.  The canopy course consists of 21 platforms, 9 zip lines, and 2 rappel lines, a suspension bridge and a Tarzan swing.  Expert guides assist you in this exciting journey through the different layers of virgin and secondary rainforest.  They point out and explain the many different types of flora and fauna; from poison dart frogs, to the “walking palm tree”.  As a result; at the end of the tour you will walk away with a newfound knowledge of Costa Rican wildlife.

Manuel Antonio National Park Nature Tour
Take a leisurely hike with a highly trained Costa Rican naturalist guide through our exotic, tropical rain forest preserved in the Manuel Antonio National Park.
The pace of this adventure is determined by your group’s abilities and interests. Watch sloths and numerous species of monkeys travel through the tree canopy, hunt for silky anteaters or iguanas resting in the tropical rain forest, and listen to the songs of the various birds as they glide above your group. And if you are lucky, you might spot one of the only 1,000 remaining endangered Mono Titi or squirrel monkey, which live in only one location in the world, the Manuel Antonio National Park biological corridor.
See how many different kinds of flora and fauna you can spot just in the span of a 2 ½ hour nature walk or hike.  And at the end, enjoy some local fresh fruits and refreshments as you pause to savor your adventure.  After the tour you may remain in the park and hike through other trails and enjoy pristine beaches.
