tours with 4 year old

Hi- We will be going to Costa Rica at the end of this week. I am interested in taking my 4 year old daughter, with my husband, on a river tour to see some of the wildlife. Does anyone have tour companies that they would recommend that are on the shorter side? How long does it usually take to get to the river area? Any other things you would recommend for this age?

Thank you.

If you are staying somewhere in the Papagayo region, your best bet will be the float trip at Rincon Corobici. www.rinconcorobici.com Very nice two-hour, leisurely trip, with a short rest stop on the river where the guide will offer you bottled water and fresh fruit. Afterwards, lunch at the restaurant is included.

You might take a look at the Sea Bird catamaran out of Playas del Coco. They have a sunset cruise that would be great. Or even a half-day tour. http://www.seabirdsailingexcursions.com/

Head for Llanos del Cortes - a huge waterfall with a small swimming area. Many times you will see monkeys overhead.

At Santa Rosa National Park, visit La Casona which is an old hacienda that is now a museum. There are several trails nearby and a couple of them are really easy.... and mostly flat.

Maybe the "Nature" option of the One-Day Pass at Hacienda Guachipelin -- http://guachipelin.com/one-day-pass.html

Thank you Hattie. I should have said that we are staying at the Hilton in Papagayo. I will look into those tours.
