Monteverde or Arenal to Samara and White Water Rafting

Go rafting on the way from La Fortuna or from Monteverde! (or vice versa) to Samara Beach. Take a scenic drive along windy roads to get to Guanacaste and then travel on isolated, rustic backroads, followed by a rugged, 4x4 ride to the the river put-in at the bridge over the Río Tenorio. As part of our People+Planet=Prosperity project, we have created a public river entrance for use of the local public with government approval.

You’ll receive a thorough safety briefing and get fitted for your equipment -- helmets, lifejackets and paddles. Then you will practice with your guide and enjoy a beautiful 2.5-hour rafting trip along the arrid and impressive canyon of the Tenorio River in Costa Rica’s picturesque Guanacaste province. Get over 20 fun, exciting rapids, a fresh fruit snack, hike to a local waterfall, and plenty of wildlife along the way like iguanas, tropical birds and monkeys.

This unique rafting tour finishes with a thrilling waterfall drop of over 6 feet!!

After the rafting tour you will do a quick hike to the 4x4 vehicle and drive out of this isolated, unspoiled region of Costa Rica. Then you will have time for a delicious lunch, use the changing rooms and then we'll head out for the beach. You will be taken to your hotel in the Samara Beach area in time for a glorious Pacific sunset!

This can also be done in reverse i.e Samara-Rafting-Monteverde or Samara-Rafting-Arenal Volcano
