Need to know:

  • From time to time, the river’s level changes: if too low or the current too swift, we may have to cancel the Buttercup Tour canoe segment.
  • Guides are bilingual in English and Spanish. However, many of our boatmen only speak Spanish. We hope you’ll be patient if you have questions during the Buttercup Tour canoe segment. We take pride in hiring local staff. Thank you for understanding.
  • Sorry, no touching or holding sloths, for their safety and yours.
  • While most of the tour is on level ground, there are a few stairs, so if you have mobility issues, please let us know and we will assist you.
