What to expect

Jump start your Costa Rica holidays with a White Water Rafting Class III & IV on the Sarapiqui River. Your Costa Rica rafting adventure begins with a 1.5 hour scenic drive winding through plantations of papaya, pineapple and yucca at the base of the majestic Arenal Volcano. Once you reach the “put-in”spot, Wave Expedition’s skillful, trained guides will go over the safety procedure and rules to prepare you for your paddling responsibilities.

The Sarapiqui River winds through spectacular greenery, between the rapids you will see monkeys, toucans and other Costa Rica wildlife. At the halfway point you will take a break while your guides prepare you delicious snacks and tropical fruit on the river bank, refuel, surrounded by the serene and majestic beauty of the rainforest. After your snack, it is time to hit the rapids again for more heart pumping excitement.

At the “take out” spot, you will be greeted with an icy beverage and dry towel. Just a short walk down the road, you will change into dry clothing and enjoy a delicious, typical Costa Rican lunch.
