Costa Rica Whitewater Rafting Class 3 Sarapiqui River - the ONLY Afternoon Rafting Trip in Arenal!
Have an exciting time on class 3 Sarapiqui rafting trip. The Sarapiqui River area is famous for its lush rainforest scenery. In fact, we call this section of the river The Jungle Run because you are bound to see monkeys, iguanas, and other amazing Costa Rican wildlife along the banks of this beautiful river for rafting.
We'll pick you up at your hotel and travel through small Costa Rican villages to the quaint town of La Virgen and finishing up in El Roble de Sarapiquí.
As soon as you're fitted with safety gear and instructions, you'll hit the Sarapiqui river and make your way 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! Along the way, our "paparrazzi" photographer will be around to catch the best action shots as your Costa Rica river adventure unfolds.
About halfway 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 class 2 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 your rafting adventure at our own restaurant Red-Eyed Frog located right next to the river with a Costa Rican delicious lunch 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!
