Costa Rica Whitewater Rafting Sarapiqui Afternoon

Costa Rica Rafting at its best!


  BOOK NOW

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. 

Be sure to post your photos to Facebook and Instagram as you rest up in your hotel so you friends and family can see how much fun you are having in Costa Rica!

Desafio Adventures was great. When we arrived for our tour, we realized that we had accidentally booked our trip for 2018. Desafio was EXTREMELY accommodating and booked us on an upgraded tour. We had a great time with our tour guides Oscar and Brian and had a great lunch when we were done. Highly recommend Desafio. Well run, top notch tour company. Great Job!

We did a whitewater rafting excursion with Jonathon from Desafio and had a great time! He was funny, knew everything we asked about the river and Costa Rica and was always joking around but made sure we were safe. We've used Desafio in the past and will continue to choose them for our Costa Rica adventures, thanks guys!
