WHITE WATER RAFTING REVENTAZóN
The Florida section of the mighty Reventazón River (1) is some of the fastest and best 10 miles of Class III rapids you'll ever paddle! If you're a first-time or experienced paddler looking for the excitement of big waves, hydraulics, and stunning scenery, then this trip is for you.
The drive from San Jose takes you through the impressive Braulio Carrillo National Park, past rainforest and waterfalls across the Continental Divide to the Caribbean side of the country.
At our Operations Center you will have breakfast, there are bathrooms, changing rooms and an area to buy last minute needs. After your safety orientation, the first rapid of the day will set the pace for more to come. As your raft rounds each new bend in this dam-controlled river, you'll be greeted with yet another breathtaking view of the Reventazón Valley. Look for toucans, kingfishers, herons, tanagers, iguanas and bright green "Jesus Christ" lizards.
This is a wonderful river that offers an exciting experience for people that want to try rafting for the first time. You need no experience, and all the instructions and the safety measures are discussed before the tour begins. The tour starts early in the morning in San Jose at a given pick up time in your hotel and takes you through the continental divide to the Caribbean lowlands. The water is not cold as in the temperate zones and you will enjoy the tropical vegetation on the banks.
The ride will be of approximately 1 ½ hours depending on the water level and the number rafts.
The Pascua section of the Reventazón will challenge the most adventurous spirit with rapids by the names of "North Sea," "Horrendito" and "Indigestion." For those who have paddled with us before, this trip is a must!
Non-stop thrills and action await you as you plunge through twists, turns and drops down 15 miles of intense, challenging rapids. This is an exciting, scenic trip for rafters with experience. All participants must be in good physical condition and ready to remain active all day.
