Deep down in your heart and soul, ask yourself: "what kind of life challenges are you craving?"
For us at Desafio Adventure Company, we crave traveling, creating play time, meeting incredible people as we go and learning more about our world.
Costa Rica is an incredible playground. Costa Rica, with its lush jungle and bountiful array of wildlife will surely awaken the adventurer inside of you. The best memories are the moments when you get out of your comfort zone, challenge yourself, and do things beyond your wildest imagination.
So, while you are here in Costa Rica, you can learn so much more about yourself and the world by choosing to go on an exciting adventure like whitewater rafting.
Whitewater rafting is a quintessential water-based activity practiced globally, and Costa Rica is home to some of the top whitewater rivers on the planet.
Enjoy the feeling of total isolation, away from busy urban life and become connected with breathtaking nature and fellow paddlers.
Facing something bigger than yourself, such as the Sarapiqui River or the Balsa River, can be daunting. Your knees may shake at the thought of conquering something such as a huge river in a foreign country, but that is where we at Desafio come in: we have 26 years of adventure experience and for us, the key to successfully experiencing this sport is having quality gear and highly-experienced and trained guides.
Our whitewater rafting guides know how important it is to make sure their team feels safe -- physically and emotionally. They are also more than happy to encourage you to be more aware of your surroundings, and to keep your eyes peeled to the true possibilities of seeing iguanas, sloths, birds, monkeys and an array of unique sights along the way.
