If you’re ready for some of the fastest and best 10 miles of Class II-III rapids, the Florida section of the mighty Reventazón River is ready for you! This day trip is perfect for first-timers or those wanting a less intense rafting experience. As your raft rounds each new bend in this dam-controlled river, you’ll be greeted with yet another breathtaking view of the Reventazón Valley. Look for toucans, kingfishers, herons, tanagers, iguanas and emerald basilisks. On the drive to the put-in, you’ll pass through the impressive Braulio Carrillo National Park, past rainforest and waterfalls across the Continental Divide to the Caribbean side of the country.

After an early morning pickup from your San Jose hotel, you will drive by private, comfortable bus to Rios Tropicales Operations Center for a delicious, typical Costa Rican breakfast. After breakfast and changing into rafting gear, we will drive to our rafting put-in on the banks of the Reventazón River.
After paddling and safety orientation, you’ll head down the river, where the first rapid of the day will set the pace for more to come. You’ll have opportunities to see breathtaking views of the valley and plenty of wildlife: toucans, kingfishers, herons, tanagers, iguanas and emerald basilisks.
After a fun and exhilarating day of big waves, hydraulics and stunning scenery, you’ll finish your trip with a stop at our Rios Tropicales Operations Center for a delicious hot lunch, hot showers, optional drinks and souvenir store before the return drive to San Jose.
