Water Shoes

The Most Challenging Saraquipi River Experience!

If you’re looking for a challenging rafting excursion on the Sarapiqui River, this is the ultimate experience! The drops, obstacles, and steep gradient make the upper Pailas Sarapiqui the epitome of classic whitewater rafting!

This is a Class V canyon that is extreme in nature. All participants should be in good physical condition and strong swimmers. Before entering the canyon paddlers will have an extensive safety and paddle talk. Every participant will also be required to swim Class III rapids at the river and practice getting back in the boat on their own.

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.

Finally, as you learn about sugar cane in Costa Rica your guide will help you extract juice from the 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!
