White Water Rafting Tours

Price $56 per person

Class II and III Rafting

This tour begins in the community known as La Virgen de Sarapiquí, one of the most important communities of the area. This tour takes us through a beautiful part of the river filled with exciting white water rapids and beautiful ponds, all surrounded by a wonderful natural scenery. This is a great tour for people who are going rafting for their first time, but who also want excitement and great rapids. It is also a great tour for people with previous experience in rafting.

In order to go on this tour, the minimum age for children is 9 years old, and in senior citizens, it is important to take into account their experience and physical condition. We do not recommend that senior citizens over the age of 60 years old participate in this tour. The complete tour (La Virgen – Chilamate) runs for about 2:30 hours to 3 hours, and it goes for a distance of 16 kilometers (10 miles). This tour includes a stop halfway through to enjoy a delicious fruit snack.



  • Minimum 2 pax.
  • The price is the same for kids and adults.
  • Women: bathing suit, shorts and t-shirt preferably with sleeves to protect them from the sun.
  • Men: swim trunks and t-shirt.
  • Everyone has to wear shoes, the options are: strap sandals (Teva, Keen); water shoes or tennis shoes (NEVER flip flops or sandals without a back).
  • Take sun block, a hat, glasses (optional):
    • Apply sun block on arms, the front of legs and the back of the neck moderately.  Don not apply sun block on the back of legs because when in contact with water it will become very slippery and will increase the chances of falling out of the raft; nor on the forehead because when in contact with water it may drip onto eyes causing irritation.
    • If wanted, you may bring a hat to wear under the helmet.
    • If glasses are taken they must have a device to secure them, like a strap.
  • Waterproof camera, bottle of water (optional).
  • Please do not take jewelry or valuable objects, because they might get lost in the river.
