White water rafting class 3 and 4 from Sarapiqui
Exciting rafting while visiting Sarapiqui!
White water rafting class 3 and 4 from Sarapiqui
If you are arriving to or staying in the Sarapiqui area, you can take advantage of going rafting on one of the top rivers in the world. Try the Sarapiqui River class 3 and 4 rafting trip and have the ride of a lifetime on this FULL DAY rafting adventure!
The starting point of this exciting Costa Rica rafting tour is our Sarapiqui Operations Center in El Roble de Sarapiqui from our restaurant the Red Eyed Frog.
You'll be able to park your car and store your belongings safely there.
From there, you'll meet your rafting guide who will check to see if you have the proper gear like secure shoes, clothes to get wet in and a great big smile because you are about to embark on to one of the most exciting rafting trips in the world!
You will then join the rafters heading to our private river put in at the San Miguel section of this classic river. You will receive thorough rafting instructions on how to paddle through a series of class 3 and 4 rapids -- and even what to do should you have a heart-thumping fall overboard out of the raft! We have a safety kayaker follow you along on our rafting adventure and a photographer to catch those thrilling moments!
After nearly 1 and half hours of full on paddling, things will settle down a bit and you'll have time to refuel on the side of the river with some delicious, fresh tropical fruit and even go for a swim.
You'll continue on the rest of the way for another 1 hour until you reach our Operations Center right on the river at the Red Eyed Frod where you can shower off, change your clothes and be treated to a delicious home-style meal.
From there you'll say good bye to your fellow travelers and we hope you take excellent memories home with you!
