Prepare to get soaked on this adrenaline-boosting ride down the Rio Sarapiquí! After morning pickup at your La Fortuna hotel, enjoy the scenic 2-hour drive to the launch site near the town of San Miguel de Sarapiquí. Gear up with a helmet, life vest and paddle, and receive a safety briefing from your expert rafting guide. 

Test your mettle as you navigate through 30 Class III and IV rapids with names like the Terminator, the Pipeline and Dos Locos. Your guide will offer tips and techniques to help you triumph through the churning chutes. A professional photographer follows in a separate raft to capture all the action on film so you can focus on paddling. You can purchase photos at the end of the tour.

Midway through the 6-mile (10-km) descent, take a riverside break and recharge with a snack of tropical fruit. You may have a chance to swim in calmer waters or even splash into the river off of a cliff. Hop back in the raft to continue the white-knuckle adventure for another several miles.

Celebrate your triumph over the Sarapiquí with a savory lunch at a local restaurant. Shower and change into dry clothes before the return drive to La Fortuna.

On a scale from 1-10, this is an 11. What a section of class 4 !!! Almost no dead spots, tons of rapids, great guides, and a well done tour. I’d do this every day if I could. A+

Somewhat disappointed
Diane_H

Our River guide was great, our driver was good, the lunch was delicious, but, this was not a full day adventure. We were on the road one hour each way, lunch and showers took a half hour., And we were only on the river less than 2 hours and That was including a stop for pineapple chunks. We were taken on the class 2-3 section of the river instead of the class 3-4 section.

We did class 3-4 and loved it. There were only 3 of us in the raft plus the guide so we didn’t have much weight but we handled it well. We flipped twice in the class 4 but we were able to get back in after drifting down some. The kayak safety guide was very helpful and professional as well and he helped us both times. The water felt great and it was a fun experience. Good food at the end !

This was such an exciting trip. And our tour guide, Maurice, was outstanding. Besides making sure we were all safe he made it FUN. He purposely caught us in waterfalls and spun us to make the adventure even more memorable. As though 3s and 4s weren't exciting enough! He even let my daughter ride on the front of the boat! All the guides created a fun brothership and their comradery was infectious. Highly highly recommend this tour!

This was the best tour we did. Don't be afraid of the class of Rapids. Most of us have never rated before but this was totally worth it. The food was amazing but very small portions. Still best trip we did, just take a snack with you too. You'll need it.
