the region of the "Eternal Spring," this river offers
some of Costa Rica's most lush and vibrant scenery. Free-flowing,
it has its origins in clear mountain streams that tumble
down through thick rainforest, finally joining together
in the crystal waters of the beautiful Sarapiquí. Verdant
forest reaches right up to the river's sun-basked banks.

low-volume river is ideal for white-water novices, as
well as families, all of whom will enjoy its moderately
flowing rapids, interspersed with tranquil stretches.
The journey is also excellent for bird-watchers and other
nature lovers, as the river stretches its way through
lush vegetation that is home to hummingbirds, toucans,
woodpeckers, and scores of other native bird species.
Don't miss this classic tropical river experience!
