Our 500 hectare northern cattle ranch is backed by an enormous quantity of wilderness. This is our full day, 4 in 1 tour. Details enclosed below.

Working with the Forestry Dept to grow new forest

Part 1 – We offer the only Costa Rican tour where everyone wins.

At 7 am , we will pick you up and at the end of the day 4:30-5 drop you off in La Fortuna or Ciudad Quesada.

Upon arrival we will get you oriented and then go and plant a tree bush or flower!

This tree planting is significant because you are replacing flora that was removed for the cattle. The Forestry dept provides us different plants for every trip so that the forest will grow diversity for support of the birds butterfly’s and wildlife. Now that we are working with the Dept of Forestry in La Perla to regrow what was natures loss. You are a part of that!

Our Low Impact tour, (Max 6 Persons +guide/day)

Part 2 – We will get you mounted up and fitted to your saddle for a one hour ride out on the range. There you will see nature/birds/wildlife living as it does day to day.

On this full day tour you might see Monkeys, crocodiles, turtles. Lizards of all shapes and sizes. Deer jaguars and javelins are also seen here. Maybe today will be your day?

OUR LOW IMPACT TOUR (Max 6 persons/day)

Part 3 – We will after a wonderful refreshing snack back at the ranch house get everyone set up in our boat for a 2-3 hour wetland tour. Thousands of wild birds and other wildlife will be enjoyed in the 100’s of thousands of acres of natural wetlands. Larger than most of our National parks. This area is not open to the general public. You get access because you know Rancho El Chonete.

Our 4 in 1 tour takes you to a part of Costa Rica off limits to tourists. See our 500 hectare norther cattle ranch on horseback and by boat. The river system flows out into 100-150,000 hectares of wetland wilderness. Tones of wildlife. A must see if you come this way.

Our Wildlife Safari combines 6 beneficial Traits!

1) Rebuilding Rain Forest
We are working with the Forestry Dept. here in La Fortuna CR to rebuild lost rain-forest at all levels to heights of the highest canopy. Each tour plants a selected tree, flower, or vine to reestablish forest that was cut to graze cattle! Tired of hearing “They are cutting down the rain forest?” Do Something about it! Take our trip!

2) There is Zero economic opportunity here for the people
Our ranch is at the end of the road in the middle of no where! Which Means you get a tremendously wild adventure! But the people of this area have no economic growth. Your trip puts people to work for you!

3) Maleku Indians Need You
Before your tour ends we will visit with the local Indians on their reservation so you can see what they do for fun. Learn a bit of CR’s real historical culture. Prepared especially for you. They know with Safari Cano Blanco you will be there.

4) Safari Cano Blanco is HUGE VALUE for little $’s
When you think about what it costs for a day trip doing anything, this price is low. A ONCE IN A LIFETIME ADVENTURE, you will want to experience again and again! Every trip is different. As this is wilderness wetlands. You never know what you are going to see. You will not be let down!

5) See GOD’S garden
Don’t think for a second we have forgotten you. This trip is a low impact high energy experience. What you see is amazing animals, butterfly’s, and birds by the thousands, even crocodiles having lunch. This is wildlife as they live, daily! Have your camera ready at all times. They are there watching us!

6) Reservations, and why
With 500 exclusive hectares on our ranch, it is to say the least, large! Your wilderness tour begins at the end of a road that the public would not normally access. Allow us to be your guide on this take this peaceful relaxing wildlife safari.  We pay attention to the needs of our guests! (We pick you up and drop you off of course.)

Please don’t hesitate to book your wildlife tour day trip now!

Maleku Indian Tribe Culture

On the way home we will stop by to visit for an hour with our friends. They are expecting you so don’t worry. They are looking forward to meeting each of you.
