Sarapiqui River Class II & III $65.00
The Sarapiquí River, the cleanest river in the area, is the perfect combination of adventure and nature. You will be accompanied by expert river guides and safety kayakers
This trip is an excellent adventure for the whole family and first timers. The Sarapiqui River is a 1 hour and 15 minute, incredibly scenic drive from La Fortuna to the province of Heredia. The altitude difference offers unique and incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. Be sure to look out for water birds, toucans, sloths and other rainforest occupants. This trip is a great way to get wet. The class II and III offer enough of an adrenaline kick to satisfy your daily requirement. Parts of the river are calm enough to go for a swim and there is also a small cliff for rafters to take a little plunge. We will also stop twice along the trip. Once to enjoy our fresh locally grown tropical fruits and again for a delicious, authentic Costa Rican Organic lunch, you’ll also learn about the growing, harvesting, production of chocolate, medical plants, fruits and sugar cane.
Finally, you will learn about sugar cane in Costa Rica. Your guide will help you extract sugar cane in a traditional fashion, and you’ll get to enjoy a glass of pure sugar cane juice. A sweet ending to a sweet tour!
Upon arrival to the river we will gear you up with a life jacket, helmet and paddle and then briefyou with a full safety orientation talk. Finally, it is time to take off down the rapids!

Cancellation by guests
Sometimes your plans may change or unavoidable situations arise that necessitate having to cancel or change your trip plans… we understand that. We provide you with a generous 72-hour cancellation policy for individual bookings, and 7 days for groups of 9 or more, group deposits are non refundable. Please note that our trips depart rain or shine.
However, please understand that once your trip is booked we reserve your space, assign staff and resources to ensure your trip runs smoothly. Since few of these costs are recoverable at the last minute, cancellations or reschedules inside of 48 hours (7 days for groups of 9 or more) of your scheduled trip departure are non-refundable and you will be fully charged.
Cancellation by Costa Rica Descents
Although we rarely cancel our trips, Costa Rica Descents reserve the right to cancel any trips due to low or dangerously high water levels, weather and related conditions or insufficient bookings, a full refund will be made available in this event.
If we do have to cancel we will do everything in our power to offer a comparable substitution, and if we do have time we will contact you to offer a solution, unless river levels rise overnight. As soon as we know we will let you know and at that time you can either cancel with a full refund, or you can choose the solution that we have offered.
Although we take every precaution to ensure that you have a safe and fun trip, white water rafting does have inherent risks.
A release/waiver must be signed prior to the trip and is a condition of participation
