Best Whitewater Rafting Sarapiqui River, Costa Rica, Class II-III
"Amazing rafting tour. As we were doing the rafting tour in April, at the end of the dry season, the water level was relatively low. Nonetheless we had an exciting tour and it was totally worth it. All guides were very friendly, speak good English (useful in our case as our Spanish does not suffice) and have pointed out several typically Costa Rican animals, among which is the Toucan. The Sarapiqui Outdoor Center has changing rooms and restrooms. After the tour we got towels and we were brought back to the Outdoor Center. Once there, a nice fruits meal had already been prepared. Perfect service!"..."
