Tour operator’s description: The Sarapiquí River is one of Costa Rica’s most-exuberant rivers for some of the best rafting Costa Rica has to offer! This Costa Rica tour is for adventurous paddlers — You’ll get over 2 hours of paddling near the Arenal Volcano with more than 20 continuous, class-3-4 rapids along more than 10 kms of lush, vibrant Costa Rica rainforest. Bring on the adrenaline!!! Experienced and first-time whitewater rafters love the Sarapiqui River for full-day, class 3-4 whitewater rafting in Costa Rica. We’ll pick you up at your La Fortuna Costa Rica hotel and travel through small, Costa Rican villages to the quaint town of San Miguel de Sarapiquí. Once at our private entrance at the Sarapiquí River, our experienced Costa Rican adventure rafting guides will give you a thorough safety talk, get you set up with our top-quality adventure gear such as your Pro-Tec helmet, NRS life jacket and paddle and then you’re off – you’ll be paddling for more than 2 hours! Make your way through exciting rapids like “The Pipeline,” “The Terminator,” and “Dos Locos” — We’ll stop along the way for a refreshing, tropical fruit break. After your Arenal rafting trip, we take you out for a typical Costa Rican “casado” lunch. You’ll return to the La Fortuna area and your Arenal hotel around 3:30-4:00pm.
