What You Can Expect
Prepare to get soaked on this adrenaline-boosting ride down the Rio Sarapiqu?!

Gear up with a helmet, life vest, and paddle, and receive a safety briefing from your expert rafting guide.
Test your mettle as you navigate through 30 Class III and IV rapids with names like the Terminator, the Pipeline and Dos Locos. Your guide will offer tips and techniques to help you triumph through the churning chutes. A professional photographer follows in a separate raft to capture all the action on film so you can focus on paddling. You can purchase photos at the end of the tour.
Midway through the 6-mile (10-km) descent, take a riverside break and recharge with a snack of tropical fruit. You may have a chance to swim in calmer waters or even splash into the river off of a cliff. Hop back in the raft to continue the white-knuckle adventure for other several miles.
