White Water Rafting and Rivers Destinations

Río Naranjo

Only 30 minutes away from the Manuel Antonio / Quepos area the Naranjo River is the natural southern border of Manuel Antonio National Park. The section we run goes from the town of Villanueva in the mountains, to the Llamarón Bridge on the road from Quepos to Dominical. On this 8 miles of whitewater we will run rapids like “La Piñata”, “El Cesar” & “Robin Hood”. On the second half of our run the river opens up on the Pacific flatlands giving us the opportunity to enjoy the view and see many species of birds like the Ringed King Fisher and the White Ibis. With a little bit of luck we might be able to see one of the crocodiles that live on the rivers edge!

Río Savegre

Consider one of the cleanest rivers in Central America; the Savegre is an authentic full day adventure: relaxation and pure action while enjoying the fantastic landscapes. This adventure starts with an early drive south of Quepos on our a/c minibus. It takes 1 ½ hours through african oil plantations, teak reforestation projects and incredible landscapes to the river put-in. After a safety briefing we start maneuvering rapids like “Boca Diablo” and “Washing Machine”. We stop on the river shore for a snack of fresh fruits and cookies to then continue our river journey. Before the end we hit “Screaming Child”rapid and then the river tames down until we meet with our mini bus.

Río Toro

Set deep in the Costa Rican rain forests and fed by waters from the Poas volcano, the Toro river winds 13 Km (about 9 miles) through the canyon filled with dramatic scenery and heart pumping excitement. The Toro River offers some of Costa Ricas best white water with big waves, technical rapids and continuous whitewater. This trip is full of nonstop class 3 and 4 rapids that will challenge even our most experienced guests. Continuous rapids, landscaped by lush rainforest walls dripping with waterfalls just gives you a flavor of what will be in store for you. This trip is for experienced paddles with a minimum age of 16 years old.

Tarcoles River

In this natural limit of the Carara national park we offer boat tours along the river to observe the high variety of bird species, some mammals and the impressive crocodiles of up to 5 meters (15 feet) in length. There are different points of access to the river.
