Laguna Chocuaco Canoe Trip

Join the Villalobos family on a canoe trip into their private lagoon, set amidst primary rainforest. You'll hike through a jungle trail on the family's property to reach the lagoon. Then you'll push off for a paddle (helping if you'd like) down a peaceful river. You are sure to see amazing bird life and exotic plants on the journey.

By joining this tour, you help the Villalobos family and the local cooperative protect over 4,000 acres of primary rainforest!
