Sarapiquí River
Class III White-Water Rarfting

Winding through a region known as the land of "Eternal Spring," the Sarapiquí River offers some of Costa Rica's most vibrant and lush tropical scenery. The free-flowing river has its origins in clear mountain streams that tumble down through thick rain forests to finally join the crystal waters of the beautiful Sarapiquí. Verdant forests stretch right up to the river's sunny banks. If Matisse had come to Costa Rica, this is what he would have painted!

This narrow, low-volume river is ideal for white-water novices and families, all of who will enjoy its moderately flowing rapids interspersed with tranquil stretches. The journey also is excellent for bird-watchers and other nature lovers. The river stretches its way through lush vegetation giving shelter to hummingbirds, toucans, woodpeckers and scores of other native bird species. This classic tropical river experience should not be missed!

Guests are picked up from their San José hotel in a comfortable minibus and driven approximately two and a half hours to the river put-in. A traditional breakfast is served at a restaurant along the way. After a short safety briefing, the rafts are rigged and the journey down the river begins. A lunch of sandwiches, fruits and dessert is served on the banks of the river. Take out will be in the afternoon, and guests can change into dry clothes in our private restroom facilities before boarding the comfortable minibus for the return drive to San José.
