Consider going river rafting during your next Costa Rica vacation. River rafting is a fun activity in which a group rides a large inflatable raft down rapids in a river. There are different types of rapids, but no two rivers are the same. Since there are more rivers per square kilometer than anywhere else on earth, Costa Rica is a great place to go rafting.
Turrialba: The Capital of Rafting
One of the most popular places to go rafting is Turrialba. It is a large town located in the mountains close to the Pacuare and Reventazon Rivers. This area is located on the Caribbean slope of the small country.
Other Popular Areas
Several areas within the Arenal Volcano National Park are incredibly popular with rafters. Two rivers inside the park, the Toro and Sarapiqui Rivers, are both are very popular with whitewater rafters. The Rio Balsa area is also popular, with Class II and III rapids for experienced rafters.
Class IV+ Rapids
Several rivers offer Class IV rapids, which are very difficult rapids to traverse. Expert rafters should only attempt anything above Class IV. The Tenorio River offers Class IV rapids, as well as areas of the Pacuare River and Savegre River. For the most difficult rapids, visit the Chorro Section of the Naranjo River. This section is open from December to May.
River rafting is fun, but consider your skill level before you jump out into a raft or kayak. You’ll need experience for most of the rapids, and some places will require expert experience.
