Itinerary Details

You will have an expert guide as your captain who will control the direction of the boat and give the team the necessary paddling commands in order to follow the best river currents. Be prepared to ride the waves that will break in front of the boat slashing everyone inside. There will be an additional guide in a kayak ahead of the raft inspecting each rapid and informing the raft guide of any changes in the river’s route. He will also be ready to help rescue any swimmers.

After riding the waves for a while, we will stop for to swim, cliff-jump, and enjoy some fresh tropical fruit along the riverbank. As we descend the river the waves will decrease in intensity which will then allow us time to observe and enjoy some of the wildlife that inhabits the area. Be on the lookout for aquatic birds, sloths, monkeys, toucans, and tropical frogs. After our rafting adventure, we will stop at our restaurant, “La Finquita” to enjoy a delicious Costa Rican lunch.
