This is a Beautiful River descend that connect the pleasure of a Physical Activity with the Nature and Wildlife Observation, giving chance to learn about the Osa Peninsula and its Environment. We bring our guests and all the stuff and tackle needed for this emotional River Kayak, with our truck, at the starting point, very close to the Corcovado National Park Border, from where we will start paddling across open Farmland, Plantations and Forest. All along the River, many species of Birds, Mammals, Reptiles, Butterflies and Fishes are easy to spot and good subject for Wildlife Photography at its bests. Along the Route we will stop a couple of time for take a little rest, have some snack and having time to compare the observation and photos taken during the descend, with the other Trekkers. This river is not used by anybody for local transportation, so, occasionally, will be necessary to walk, hauling the Kayak, for to pass around some blockage produced by trunks and branches pushed down by the water current… just some adventure more!! At the end of the River, a huge Mangrove Complex with very tall trees, habitat of the very rare Yellow-Billed Cotinga , will be crossed along its canals before to reach the open waters of the Golfo Dulce, and a small beach where our truck will recover the Guests and the stuff for the ride back to Puerto Jimenez
In the last 25 years we had the opportunity to paddle, at the beginning with our self made fiberglass kayaks, along almost all the Rivers, Creeks, Lagoons, Shores and Reefs of the Osa Peninsula. The Passion for Kayaking and Explore the Big Rivers and the Small Creeks, the Hidden Lagoons, the Abandoned Rivers and the Wetland Forests, allowed us to collect the data needed for to Create and Open new Treks for People interested in Real Adventure Experiences, far from the over-crowded commercial routes. During all these years we learned how to read the River, the Sky and the Wind, the fast changing weather typical of the Tropic, for to assure to the Trekkers a safe and pleasant experience, and we really know where and when to bring Trekkers for an Experience that nobody else is offering.
