The Rio Claro Floating Tour offers travelers a leisurely way to enjoy the fresh waterways of Costa Rica. During this tour, you may spot a variety of wildlife including monkeys, sloths, lizards, and many species of tropical birds.

The journey will begin at 8 AM from Drake Bay. We will take a 30 minute car ride until we reach some of our most stunning primary forest. Then, we will begin a 2 hour hike through the primary forest until we reach an amazing waterfall deep in the jungle.

We will spend approximately 30 minutes swimming at the waterfall before we continue with our journey floating down the river. It takes approximately one and a half hours to float down the river until we reach the Rio Claro beach.

Once at the Rio Claro beach, we will walk for about 30 minutes to San Josecito Beach, which is one of the most beautiful beaches of Costa Rica.

Finally, we will take a 10 minute boat ride back to Drake Bay.

The tour will conclude around 1 PM.
