Rio Sarapiqui, a beautiful class III river and excellent introduction to Costa Rican whitewater.

Pozo Azul is a runnable 18 to 20 ft waterfall for those who are experienced, capable and interested. Otherwise, it will be the perfect opportunity for pictures and a refreshing dip. 

Rio Reventazon for some high adventure class III+-IV white water! There are two sections on this river, the ‘Florida’ section (III) and the Pascua section (IV). We will have the option of paddling either or both sections of the Rio Reventazon.

Rio Pacuare where we will prepare for an exciting and memorable 2-day river raft-supported kayak trip in the jungle. After our first day on the river, we will eat and sleep at the world renowned Pacuare Lodge , a unique tropical paradise. 


The Rio General boasts several runnable sections of white water ranging from class II to class V. Our group will have the option of running two of those five sections, a short class III section (2 hours) or a longer and slightly more challenging class IV section (5 hours). It is possible for us to split into two groups on this river for those interested. Paddlers who choose the shorter section will have the opportunity to take full advantage of an early hotel arrival and perhaps some free time. The paddling group on the longer section can expect to experience a full day of fun and challenging white-water followed by a 4x4 jungle take ride back to the hotel where they will meet up with the rest of the gang for dinner and a relaxing evening .

Rio Savegre is a roadside river with an upper and lower section to check out. We can expect approximately 3 hours of class III-IV paddling; play and energy dependant of course. Depending on the section we decide to paddle we will also have the option of eating lunch at the Rafiki Lodge or on the river.


Our group will sit down for an exquisite dinner and comfortable stay at the well-known Rafiki Lodge.

The Savegre... enjoy a leisurely class I-II paddle from the Rafiki Lodge down to the take-out bridge 2.5 hours downstream. Once back on the road, we’ll focus our energy on reaching Quepos and Manual Antonio, two very cool little surfing towns on the pacific coast. We’ll enjoy another healthy meal at Portosol, grab our boats and hit the beach for some kayak surfing at Playa Matapalo. Our group will stay at either Portosol or the Bahari Beach Hotel this evening depending on our group numbers.


Manuel Antonio for a Catamaran Tour which includes spectacular scenery, sun, world-class snorkelling, great food & drink and good times. There are also some other options including paddling the class III-IV Rio Naranjo and/or hiking and exploring the Manual Antonio National Park which is home to all kinds of cool insects, reptiles, animals, primates, flora and beautiful beaches.

Enjoy your final beach views because after an early breakfast we’ll be loading up the bus and will quickly find ourselves zipping through the rainforest on a canopy tour! This is a classic Costa Rican experience and one you will not forget. After a well-deserved lunch we’ll find ourselves back in the bus and on our way to the Quepos airport. From here, we will all fly back to San Jose where some will continue their journey back to their homes and others will remain in San Jose/Alajuela for a final evening of telling stories and celebrating an unforgettable experience of a lifetime.

Pura Vida!!!
