Sarapiqui River Whitewater River Rafting

Sarapiqui River Whitewater River Rafting – This scenic tropical river offers an exciting day of rafting. The crystal clear waters of the Sarapiqui are full of action packed class 3 and 4 rapids


This river is perfect for all levels of rafting from experts to first timers and families. Wildlife observation & at the end a great lunch and the guides will show you poison dart frogs, ruby eyed tree frogs, birds in the rain forest & much more. If you think a 3/4 is too much, we have Rio Balsa that is a 2/3.

Our journey starts with a 1 hr, 20 min scenic drive through the Eastern portion of central Costa Rica.  We will travel through the beautiful pineapple, papaya and yucca fields with Volcano Arenal set in the backdrop.  After a short safety briefing with our local professional guides we head down river.

White Wareer River Rafting Costa RicaWith the lush rainforest as our backdrop you can expect 14 Kilometers (about 10 miles) of unforgettable action and breathtaking nature. We stop midway to “re-fuel” with refreshing tropical fruits. Our adventure ends with cold drinks, a dry towel followed by a well deserved Costa Rican typical lunch! After rafting we return you to Arenal.
