Enjoy an Adventure Through the Rapids of the Saraquipi
If you’re looking for a fun but challenging rafting excursion near La Fortuna, this is the adventure for you! The Sarapiqui is a river in a deep and remote gorge with heart-pounding rapids. The large drops, numerous obstacles, and steep gradient make Sarapiqui the epitome of classic white water.
Before entering the canyon, paddlers will have an extensive safety and paddle talk so that participants should feel comfortable in white water, be in good physical condition, able to paddle, and willing to work together.
Upon arrival at the river, we will gear you up with a life jacket, helmet, and paddle and then brief you with a full safety orientation talk. Then it will be time to take off down the rapids!
Once you’re on the river, you will enjoy a fun combination of whitewater thrills and areas where the water is calm enough to swim. Wildlife abounds in this section of the Sarapiqui so keep an eye out for sloths, iguanas, howler monkeys and a vast array of tropical birds.
However, this trip is not all about relaxation. The rolling, tumbling Class III-IV rapids will be enough to bring laughter and excitement to the whole family. The trip will be guided by our awesome and safe guides that could even make a mud puddle fun.
As with every trip, there will be one stop for locally grown, organic fruits and another stop for an authentic Costa Rican Organic lunch. You’ll also learn about the growing, harvesting, and production of chocolate, medicinal plants, fruits, and sugar cane.
Please note that towels are included with this trip.
