Guanacaste Day Tour Rafting Class 3-4 Tenorio River
Costa Rica has some of the best whitewater rafting options in the whole world! Be sure to go white water rafting when you are staying at the beach in Guanacaste or Playa Samara -- it will be one of your best days ever in Costa Rica when you go rafting with us!
Once you've arrived at our Tenorio Outpost Operations Center and Restaurant located on the PanAmerican Highway next to the Corobici River Bridge (located about 1 hour and 45 minutes from Liberia and about 8 minutes before you arrive in Cañas), we'll have you sign our Waiver form and tell you a little about current conditions on the river.
Your guides will then get you loaded up into our All-Terrain-Tenorio 4x4 and drive about 45 minutes across the rustic Costa Rican back roads, through gorgeous mountains and quaint villages until we reach the Tenorio River private put-in.
Your professional guides will give you a safety briefing about your rafting expedition including safety tips and technical instructions.
Now you're ready to head out on your 2.5-hour journey down one of Costa Rica’s most famous rivers!
You’ll witness the impressive canyon of the Tenorio River along with many different types of flora and fauna - there is a unique contrast of the red rocks against the green plants that line the canyon. Your guide will try to point out birds, monkeys and other types of wildlife as you make your way through highly technical and tight rapids along the way.
Cool off in the exhilarating water of the Tenorio River as you cruise on down this amazingly exciting river in the middle of the Guanacaste landscape that will certainly remind you of a Salvador Dali painting! You’ll experience over 20 thrilling rapids, and finish the tour by going over Costa Rica's most extreme whitewater rapids that we have named Cascabel Falls – an intense 12-ft waterfall drop!
After this rafting tour is over, you'll be treated to some snacks and then hike a bit up to where your 4x4 transportation is waiting for you to take you back on another 35-minute ride back though wild, rustic Costa Rican roads to return to the Tenorio Outpost restaurant. You will have an opportunity to change your clothing and enjoy a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch before heading back to your Hotel in Guanacaste after a perfect day of pure adrenaline!
This Costa Rica rafting trip also picks up from and drops off at lodging options around the Bijagua, Katira, Guatuso and Tenorio Volcano areas. We will let you know upon booking if there is and additional charge.
Have a look at our Adventure Waiver if you have questions about our Costa Rica adventure tour policies.
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 so you don't miss out on a fun day in Costa Rica. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions and will only run a tour according to our policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run. This adventure involves some inherent risk and physical exertion, so you must be in good physical condition!
