White water rafting in Costa Rica
White-water rafting in Costa Rica is incredibly popular. What always starts of as a leisurely paddle down river will soon turn into an adrenalin fueled fast-paced journey negotiating rapids of varying difficulty as you follow the twists and turns of the water.
Safety first, life-jackets and helmets will be provided and you will always be accompanied by a professional guide!
One of the beauties of rafting in Costa Rica is that there is bound to be a river and route to suit your ability from beginner to absolutely crazy thrill seeker, though we recommend only the experienced go for the Class V rapids. Others should stick to II, III and IV.
Wherever you decide to embark on this heart-pumping activity you can rest assured that there will be some stretches of smoothe water that will allow you the opportunity to look around you and absorb the beauty of the luscious jungle scenery which rises up from the river gorge, you may even catch sight of some wildlife.
where to go
For beginners the gentler areas to raft are around Manuel Antonio or Gaunacaste. For the fearless thrill-seekers amongst you Rio Pacuare in the Central Valley will provide you with stronger rapids, depending on the time of year, you will get Class V! Another popular spot is Rio Sarapiqui which is considered easy to moderate with Class II and III rapids, although some sections are a little more feisty with Class IV.
when to go
First timers are catered for all year round, but if you are a seasoned white-water enthusiast looking for thrills, then the wildest months are from June to October
