Activity choices include:


Guided Rainforest Boardwalk Tour - Central America's longest boardwalk through primary rainforest. Follow a naturalist guide for a tour along an elevated boardwalk that meanders into primary growth forest of lowland flood zones. The hand built boardwalk provides a great vantage point which allows you to gaze at the variety of tropical plants and wildlife without disturbing the eco system below.
During the mile-long (1.2-km) boardwalk — the longest one in all of Central America — come across the five majestic ceiba trees, hundreds of years old, which gave the park its name. Listen for howler monkeys, toucans, bats and many red-eyed tree frogs, watch for parades of leaf-cutter ants or hummingbirds and the endangered great green macaw in the treetops.

Guided Rio Cuarto Kayak Trip - Professional and well maintained single and double kayaks and equipment make the experience easily manageable for those without experience. The kayak house has all the modern facilities for your convenience, there are his and hers dress rooms with lockers, towels, bathrooms and showers. You can store all your valuables and items you do not need in a locker and then off for your kayak adventure.
Board a single or double kayak and cruise down the slow-moving Rio Cuarto that winds into an ever changing forest with huge canopies of trees teeming with biodiversity. As you paddle, watch monkeys hanging from branches and spot sloths, kingfishers. For the kayak trip we recommend you bring a change of clothes, water or open shoes and a bathing suit.

Guided Horseback Riding Tour - The horseback tour guide will join you in your adventure that starts at the visitors’ center with a drive through the reforestation in one of Cinco Ceibas colorful buses.
