This private rainforest reserve and adventure park at Finca Pangola features an elevated boardwalk. The boardwalk is 1.2 km long, is wheelchair accessible, and offers an interesting perspective of the rainforest basin. Along with the boardwalk, Cinco Ceibas provides several other unique opportunities to see and experience the Costa Rican rainforest.

Kayak Tours

Kayak down the Rio Cuarto with a tour guide. A bus drives kayakers to the Rio Cuarto River which is a slow-moving river. Before you start the tour, a guide will demonstrate safety and offer instructions.

The 1 ½ hour tour meanders through the forest of huge trees which host incredible bio diversity. Before you leave, the kayak house offers restroom facilities, dressing rooms, and lockers so you can kayak with your belongings safely stashed away. When you return, the kayak house is also equipped with showers.

Horseback Tour

The horseback tour provides the ride of your lifetime. Before you head out, a guide provides safety instructions and equips you with a helmet. The tour cuts through pastures where you’ll witness stunning views, the Chaperron Mountains and distant volcanoes.

This leisurely tour winds through the reforestation and the jungle on the boarder of the Rio Cuarto. The tour lasts about 1½ hours.

Wagon Rides

If you’re not quite adventurous enough to take the horseback tour, you can step aboard a wagon pulled by a pair of oxen. This educational tour carries you through the farm and nursery. Staff educates riders about reforestation, orchids, fruit trees, papaya and banana cultivation, and more.

The wagon is a perfect choice for those who want to be sheltered from the sun or rain, too.

Outdoor Yoga & Wellness Center

The newest addition to the Cinco Ceibas rainforest adventure is a juice bar lounge, fusion restaurant, and wellness facility overlooking the Rio Curarto. The building is an open-air facility that features a wooden floor and large overhanging roof to keep the sun and rain out. It’s a peaceful setting perfect for yoga participants. Sessions include a visit to the boardwalk and lunch.
