The Corobicí river rafting tour is a gentle rafting experience on a river fed by the virgin mountains of the Tenorio Volcano. The Corobicí River is part of the greater Tempisque Conservation Area, which also includes Palo Verde National Park. It protects Central America’s most important nesting grounds for migrating water birds.
Whether you like to spot tropical birds, reptiles and monkeys, or just have fun navigating mellow but exciting Class 1-2 rapids, you’ll be in the right place. This is a tour for the whole family, and your guide will do the rowing and also spot the plentiful wildlife along the ride.
You can expect to see lots of waterbirds, like herons, egrets, ibis, roseate spoonbills, storks, kingfishers and also raptors, flycatchers, trogons and maybe even owls, toucans and parrots.
Howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins, iguanas, bats, basilisks (”Jesus Christ lizards”) and crocodiles are all commonly spotted, and occasionally we see white-nosed coatis and rare river otters.
After two hours on the pristine Corobicí we’ll have a traditional Costa Rican casado, a combination of rice, beans, salad, plantain, vegetable stew and a choice of fish, pork, chicken or beef.

Our January 12 to the 22 stay was our second trip to Villa la Sata. We didn’t think it could get any better but this was a very special time in this extremely special place. For all our experiences here in Guanacaste this Estate cannot be matched. The village of Flamingo provides varied opportunities for dining and entertainment. Whether at Angelina’s, Coco Loco or La Forketta the food was amazing. The in home chef Jean Luc was the BEST! The beauty of the white sand beach of Flamingo is unparalleled. The staff at Villa la Sata was extremely accommodating. There was no better way to escape the cold of Montana. We will return yet again, Michael Snow

It would be tougher to spend a week in Costa Rica in a nicer home than Villa La Sata. Not only is it centrally located to the “hopping” area of the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica, it is positioned on the property and Bay perfectly.
A view of over 180 degrees of the ocean is breathtaking. The home is beautiful, updated and unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime vacation home.
This will go down as the nicest home we have ever spent time in, on vacation.

We stayed at Villa La Sata, in Costa Rica for a few days in February. It is a very special place which is beautifully appointed with detail after detail. I can’t imagine a better location in the world to soak up the sun on its terraces, perched on a cliff overlooking a mile or so of wonderful beach. We had magnificent sunsets every night that were among the best I have ever seen. My wife was in heaven as she cannot miss a sunset.

Staying at Villa La Sata was an amazing experience! The views were immaculate and the villa was very impressive… I loved waking up to the sound and site of the beach each morning.
The fact that you can see the water as the front gate opens and from every room is why I would consider this the Gem of Flamingo. I’ve never experienced anything like the sunsets here as well. As a videographer and photographer it was more than just a paradise it was Heaven.
