The Sarapiqui River is the perfect combination of adventure and nature. This area is filled with class II-III rapids and clear, refreshing water that swerves its way through the tropical rainforest of Sarapiqui, making it a real paradise.


  • Enjoy a hot lunch overlooking the river
  • Savor a colorful buffet of fresh tropical fruits
  • Swim in calm, crystal clear pools


Ideal for those who want to combine the thrills of whitewater rafting with nature, the tour is especially suitable for beginners and intermediate rafters. The refreshing waters snake through the tropical jungle, and offer great spots to swim or pretend to be Tarzan and leap from the banks. Meet your guide at the riverside Operation Center in Chilamte Sarapiqui, leave your car in the safe parking lot, and jump on the van for a short 10 minute ride to the river or schedule a pick up from your Sarapiqui hotel. Once you arrive to the put in, the certified guides will prepare you with your professional gear and a briefing with safety commands and paddling instructions. Then, the adventure begins! Rapids with names like “Roller Coaster”, “Superman”, and “Air Force” will thrill you while the incredible surrounding flora and fauna will leave you breathless. After 2 ½ hours filled with extreme adventure, a delicious traditional lunch will be awaiting you in the riverside facilities. After lunch, you will be ready to return to your hotel to continue enjoying the charm of Sarapiqui or head on to your next destination.
