Río Sarapiquí Class 3-4 White Water Rafting. Heart-pumping Adventure!
Bring on the adrenaline! Whitewater rafting Rio Sarapiqui is for experienced and first-time rafters who love adventure. A full-day, class 3-4 rafting on one of Costa Rica’s most-exuberant rivers: a perfect rafting trip for adventurous paddlers. You’ll get about 2 - 2.5 hours of rafting with more than 12 continuous, class-3-4 rapids along more than 10kms of lush, vibrant rainforest. Make your way through exciting rapids like “The Pipeline,” “The Terminator,” and “Dos Locos”.
This fast flowing river has its origins from the mountains of central Costa Rica and runs to the border of Nicaragua. The Sarapiquí winds down a narrow waterway, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, as well as farmland and towering trees.
The area is habitat to several different species of birds such as toucans and hummingbirds. Frequently spotted are monkeys, iguanas, sloths and river turtles . The river is a mixture of exciting white water rapids and quieter sections for wildlife viewing and relaxing!
Once at the river, our experienced guides will give you a thorough safety talk, get you set up with your helmet, life jacket and paddle and then you're off – we'll stop along the way for a nice, tropical fruit break and afterward we take you out for a typical Costa Rican “casado” lunch.
The tour picks up in La Fortuna (Arenal) and you'll return to La Fortuna and the Arenal Area around 3:30-4:00pm. Also you can come from San Jose or get dropped in San Jose (see below).
No time to visit Arenal? No problem! There is a one day tour from San Jose and returning to San Jose.
ADVENTURE CONNECTIONS: If you are not already in Arenal you can still go rafting by taking our Adventure Connection! It departs from San José & meets up with the rafters from the Arenal Volcano area. Or if you are traveling from Arenal to San Jose, why not do rafting along the way and turn a travel day into a fun adventure with lunch included and all transport!
