Get your adrenaline pumping as you paddle through whitewater rapids in the midst of a stunning tropical landscape. You’ll be picked up at your San Jose hotel for the drive to the river launch site.
Before setting out on the river, you’ll receive a brief orientation and safety training from your experienced guide. Gear up with a paddle, life vest and helmet before hopping into the raft. Once adrift on the Chirripó, you’ll be able to admire the lush scenery, with a dense emerald forest rising up from the riverbanks. You may notice the river’s copper hue, which is the result of soil deposits from nearby volcanic fields.
Paddle hard and fast to maneuver your raft through the roaring dips and bends of more than 20 Class III rapids. Take a break from the intense action halfway through your adventure, when you’ll disembark on the riverbank for a rest and replenishing snack of fresh fruit.
After experiencing the thrill of the rapids, step back on solid ground. You will then enjoy lunch at this point before the return drive to San Jose.
