White Water Rafting Arenal – Class II and III

Book It

This is a classic, beautiful class III-IV river – you’re going to love this adventure!

The Sarapiquí River is one of Costa Rica’s most-exuberant rivers and the perfect rafting trip for adventurous paddlers. You’ll get about 2 hours of rafting with more than 20 continuous, class II-III rapids along more than 10kms of lush, vibrant rainforest. Make your way through exciting rapids like “The Pipeline,” “The Terminator,” and “Dos Locos” and finish with a spread of delicious, fresh, tropical fruit and a typical lunch.

This Arenal Volcano tour also departs from San José on the Adventure Connection Transfer + Tour and meets up with the rafting clients from the Arenal area. This is a easy way to plan your travel, save money and save time.

Please note: if river conditions are unsuitable for the Río Sarapiquí, the head guide might make the call to change to a back-up river and/or offer another tour, it is also possible to run another class 3-4 river called Tenorio as well as the Toro rafting – you’re always guaranteed a fun day of adventure!
