Agua Trails is a tour operator located in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. Under the name of Crossing Border Tours, Agua Trails organizes day tours, shuttles and multi-day packages to southern Nicaragua trying to invigorate the relatively unknown route to San Carlos and the San Juan river.
Travelling from La Fortuna to the border with Nicaragua only takes a little over 3 hours and border formalities generally don't take too long as it is a small, friendly border passage. During the boat ride over the Rio Frio to San Carlos, Nicaragua, a variety of animals can be seen, including monkeys, caimans, river turtles and many bird species.
