Sarapiquí
One day, Class III white-water rafting


Winding through 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. 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, 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!

We will pick you up from your San José hotel, driving approximately 2 1/2 hours to the river put-in. A traditional breakfast is served at a restaurant en route. After a short safety briefing, you will rig your raft and begin the journey downriver. Lunch is served on the banks of the river. Take out will be in the afternoon, at which time you can change into dry clothes in our private restroom facilities before your return to San José.
