The Sarapiqui River Rafting tour takes place in the North of Costa Rica and a luscious plain formed by the river, and breathtaking virgin rainforests surround it.
The pristine river travels along grassy meadows in dairy farms, and gallery rainforests with towering trees, covered by huge vines. It is also the home of three different monkey species, two types of sloths, hundreds of bird species, and several species of reptiles and amphibians.
The incredible scenario also makes the Sarapiqui River rafting a fabulous trip. The easy class III rapids are perfect for beginners and children. This adventure is an ideal equilibrium of relaxation, fun, and excitement, as there are lots of opportunities for wildlife sightseeing in quiet areas.
