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 paddle our canoes down the Rio Frio or Rio Los Patos. The tour starts at 06:00am with a two hour drive to just inside the national refuge, from where we paddle. If you only have one day and want to see a wide range of wildlife, this trip is a favorite. We return to La Fortuna by 06:00pm.
