White Water Rafting Class III / IV From La Fortuna

Join us for a great day of rafting! Set deep in the Costa Rican rain forests and fed by waters from the Poas volcano, this amazing tropical river winds 13Km (about 9 miles) through the canyon filled with dramatic scenery and heart pumping excitement. This river offers some of Costa Rica`s best white water with big waves, technical rapids, and continuous whitewater. Our journey begins with a 1.5 hour scenic drive through the Eastern portion of central Costa Rica through the beautiful pineapple, papaya, and yucca fields with Volcano Arenal set in the backdrop. Once we reach our destination, our skilled guides will review the rules and safety guidelines for the river to familiarize you with your job as a paddler. Then we will take the PLUNGE and head down river.  This is a thrilling ride with spectacular scenery to enjoy along the way! Halfway through our journey down river we will stop and enjoy a light snack of delicious tropical fruit while soaking in the tropical surroundings. River time varies between 2.5 and 3 hours depending on changing daily water flow. At the end of our journey, a cold drink and dry towel will await you before a short ride where you can change into dry clothes. Then you will enjoy a delicious Costa Rican lunch. This class runs on 2 different rivers, the Sarapiqui River and the Toro River. Each of the rivers are identical and are only 15 minutes apart. The river is determined each morning depending on the most optimal water levels guarantying that you will have the most optimal river experience available.
