Have a look at our Adventure Waiver if you have questions about our adventure tour policies for rafting in Costa Rica.
Arenal rafting involves inherent risk and you should be in good phyisical condition with no prior injury or medical condition such as asthma, heart issues, pregnancy, etc.
We sell dry bags and Chums sunglass holders, river shoes and commemorative souvenir Rio Sarapiqui t-shirts at our office in our EGO Store in case you need any last-minute supplies.
We have an extra transport charge for hotels outside of our normal pick-up zone.
For reasons beyond our control (climate, river levels, etc.), we may change to a more-suitable tour with an equal or similar adventure-appeal or offer other tour options. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions and will only run a tour according to our company policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run.
We are lucky to have this exclusive section of the Sarapiqui River available because the Balsa River was recently dammed and no one can run the class 3-4 Upper Section of the Balsa River anymore. The Balsa River lower section is now class 2-3.
