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 this Class II+ section on the Reventazón River will provide you with the thrill of rafting, get you wet, but keep you safely in your boat. We paddle together on the wide-open waters of the river through small waves with little maneuvering. As you progress downriver, the pools become longer where you can rest and observe a number of birds in their tropical habitat. We will be on the river between 1 1/2 to 2 hours depending on water levels and taking out at the banana plantations. Return to Rios Tropicales Operations Center for lunch.
Note: This tour will be run with the same equipment and safety regulations as we use on our Class III and above tours. The rapids for Class II+ have very little inherent risk and allow us to invite participants from 8 years old and up.
