Reventazón River Rafting – One Day

If you looking for a fun day join us at the beautiful Reventazon River on Costa Rica’s most classic one-day whitewater rafting trip! Get ready to enjoy 10 miles of great and exciting Class 2-3 rapids in the Florida section of the Reventazon river that are fun for first-timers or those wanting a less intense rafting experience. The Reventazon river was the first river used for commercial rafting trips in Costa Rica, and it is the longest river in the Caribbean region. There is always plenty of water for rafting all year long because the river is dam controlled. In fact, it produces most of the renewable energy for a good part of the country with its hydroelectric dams.

This wonderful introduction to whitewater rafting gives you two hours of fun on the river, and with a minimum age of 9 years old.  It’s a great trip for families! Our internationally-certified, bilingual rafting guides will steer you through the lively rapids as you flow down the breathtaking Reventazon Valley. Look for toucans, kingfishers, herons, tanagers, iguanas and emerald basilisks along the way. We know you’ll have worked up an appetite while rafting, so when you finish, we’ll have a delicious lunch waiting for you at our lunch Point it could be in one of the beautiful beaches among the river banks or in our take out point it depends of the weather. There, you can enjoy a cold drink at our bar (additional cost), take shower and change clothes before you take the bus to San José. During your return to San Jose, you will enjoy incredible and wonderful views of our Braulio carrillo national park and other beautiful views. This unforgettable trip will be one of the many highlights of your visit to Costa Rica!
