Afternoon White Water Rafting Class II-III from La Fortuna-Arenal
From US$ 65.00
Overview
Experience Sarapiqui River’s white-water rapids on a thrilling half-day rafting trip. After a safety tutorial at La Virgen Bridge, get underway with a skilled guide and navigate class-II and -III rapids on a 9-mile (13-kilometer) journey. Watch for monkeys, toucans, and other tropical wildlife as you ride downriver. Then, enjoy an ice-cold beer or juice upon arrival at the take-out point.
What to Expect
Get ready for this Action-Packed and Family Friendly Whitewater Adventure!
We launch our boats  near the  La Virgen Bridge on the Sarapiqui River and get off to an exciting start as we navigate the class II- III rapids including Superman, Confusion , Ay Caramba  and many more.  Our skilled guides will go over the safety procedures and prepare you for your paddling adventure. This lively, tropical river  is bordered  by lowland rainforest and features numerous class II-III rapids. The Sarapiqui river played an important role for the Spaniards to open an access route toward the San Juan River and access to  the Caribbean and Nicaragua. Our rafting time runs between 1.5 and 2 hours on the river depending on water flow which changes daily.
Along the banks of the river you will see spectacular foliage, so keep your eyes peeled between rapids for monkeys, toucans and other tropical wildlife.  Once you reach the take out point, you will be greeted with cold beer (or juice) and dry towel before heading back to La Fortuna.  Wave rafting trip on the Sarapiqui is bound to be a highlight on your Costa Rican vacation.
