Safari Float

SUMMARY

The objective of this experience is viewing and enjoying Costa Rica’s tremendous beauty in a completely different way since you’ll explore rainforest’s attributes while sitting on a raft which is going to calmly navigate 2 kilometers down the Peñas Blancas river.

This pleasant and entertaining tour will let you enjoy the sights and sounds of the rainforest in a stage unreachable via land roads. Monkeys, sloths, iguanas, crocodiles and a vast array of birds awaits hidden among the green at the borders of the river. As you glide down class II and very occasional class III rapids, your professional bilingual guide will share with you enlightening and amusing explanations of the region’s plants and animals, enhancing your trip.

On our way back to La Fortuna, we’ll make a stop for a Chocolate tasting; a unique experience which is going to wake our senses. Eden Organic Farm is a small family company dedicated to produce chocolate confectionery according to the highest standards of product purity and quality. They are recognized for being highly meticulous with this process from the cacao crop growing -which is fully organic grown- to the final processing -which in contrast to popular brands, doesn’t occurs in large amounts, guaranteeing the purity of its product-.

In this adventure we’ll sit down to table and gradually we’ll get immersed in the sweetest gastronomic experience in the area. Bit by bit, our senses will be awakened as we take in our hands the cacao seeds to feel and smell its strong aroma, as we grind them and as we taste its changing flavor along the process to have a refined chocolate. A specialized collaborator will guide our sensorial experience as we try five different types of chocolate, a relaxing chocolate infusion and finally, the caramelized cacao nibs. This guide also will teach us about the medicinal value of each type and how you can differentiate an authentic chocolate product of real quality from the industrial brands.
