Costa Rica Whitewater Rafting Class 3 Sarapiqui River the only Afternoon Rafting Trip in Arenal!
Bring on the adrenaline with the class 3 rafting trip on the Sarapiqui River! The Sarapiqui River area is famous for its lush jungle scenery. In fact, we call this section of the river The Jungle Run because you are bound to seemonkeys, iguanas and other amazing Costa Rican wildlife along the side of this beautifukl river for rafting.
As soon as you're fitted with safety gear and instructions, you'll hit the Sarapiqui river and fly down rolling rapids while your guide directs the raft and calls out directions... "Paddle Hard!" "Right Paddle!" "Back Paddle!" "Get Down!"
Duck, dodge, paddle, and laugh your way down the river as your heart races and your eyes dance with excitement! Best of all, our "paparrazzi" photographer will be around to catch the best action shots as your river adventure unfolds.
About half way down this incredible Costa Rica river, enjoy a refreshing tropical fruit snack, relax with the rest of the group, go for a swim, or just take in the rushing waters around you! The birdwatching opportunities in the afternoon are amazing, so you'll also have the chance to spot a variety of interesting birds.
Finish the day with a delicious traditional meal at our own restaurant The Red Eyed Frog right on the side of the river before heading back to your hotel on our comfortable air-conditioned van with FREE WiFi.
The Sarapiqui Afternoon rafting trip combines to do the SUPER Mambo Combo with Lost Canyon Adventures Canyoning!
