Tour operator’s description: The Florida section of the Reventazon River is a big water run, ranked as moderately difficult. Its lush surroundings, abundant bird life and plentiful rapids make this trip a perfect introduction to river running. It is a 16 km /10 miles run that is clearly divided into two sections. The first hour is very exciting, with big waves and long rapids. Then we stop for a picnic lunch, at the most scenic beach on the river. The second half is more relaxed, as the river enters the true lower Caribbean at which time your surroundings take on a jungle character and the wildlife is more plentiful. At the end of the descent we will take you to our Exploration Center where you can change, shower and relax while enjoying a cold beverage of your choice.
