If you enjoy super cool activities, Xploratura’s Costa Rica white water rafting adventure is going to be a special event when you visit lovely Jaco on the Central Pacific coast. Once you have confirmed your booking and when the magical day for your Costa Rica river rafting tour arrives, we just ask you to follow our guide’s simple instructions. Listen carefully to the safety briefing before starting out. There are three magic words to listen for - “forward” (meaning row), “stop” and “down”, meaning keep a low profile!
The Best Rafting Tours in Costa Rica
The location of the Savegre River is about an hour's drive from the main Manuel Antonio hotel district, to the north of Jaco passing through famous Quepos, Costa Rica. The Class II and III rapids encountered during our Savegre River White Water Rafting extravaganza are relatively easy and fun to navigate. The local conditions make this white water rafting adventure perfect for beginners who want some adrenaline pumping action, followed by calmer sections of sedate rafting to regroup before the next rapids! With this tour under your belt, you will be ready for the more difficult Naranjo River Rafting adventure.
It’s all about Mountains and Climate
Majestic mountain ranges crisscross Costa Rica from the shores of the Caribbean to the beaches of the Pacific. Tropical rain clouds gather year-round high above the verdant forests in the central highlands and create consistent rainfall. They also ensure that all Costa Rica Rivers are high as the waters head off in search of the ocean, gathering momentum as they wind their way through and around obstructions, forming many rapids along the way.
Costa Rica Rafting – Go With the Flow!
This scene is set for perfect white water rafting conditions. The fast flowing waters find the quickest way around rocks and cliffs, and other boats as they gather yet more speed. Our guides know how to ride the white water waves and maneuver the boat safely through fast flowing water and around rocks and bends – expect to get wet because you are bound to! Don’t worry, you will quickly learn what’s required as our skipper barks his orders above the roar of the river. The boat requires constant trimming and its passengers are integral to the challenges ahead. One thing we guarantee - you are in for one heck of a ride as you switch between rowing and flowing with the water, artfully dodging harmful objects along the way. Awesome!
Fast Flowing Adrenalin Action
Once we reach the Savegre River, your rafting in Costa Rica experience commences just as soon as you have completed the safety briefing and a practice run. Besides being your helmsman, our guide is your environmental expert. He will share everything with you as you glide swiftly over the course.
Mountains, Canyons and Water Falls
Leaving the Talamanca Mountains, your Savegre River rafting adventure passes waterfalls and canyons and takes in a number of rapids – definitely the most beautiful white water rafting Costa Rica has. After your river adventure, your guide will teach you about the local flora and fauna and point out a spectacular waterfall, where you can swim. This tour ends with a delicious homemade lunch.
