Take on the Tenorio River on a full-day white water rafting adventure from Tamarindo, and splash, paddle and maneuver your way through eight miles of Class III and IV rapids. Learn the basics of river safety and gear, then launch into waves and drops that twist and turn along the river’s course. In between the churning rapids, enjoy the sights and sounds of a lush tropical forest that’s home to bright birds and butterflies, chattering monkeys and shy reptiles, and enjoy a riverside lunch before returning to Tamarindo.

Fun for all rafting levels
FreddyC, Feb 2021
Wonderful rafting on the Tenorio River. Guides Roberto and Sam made the trip fun for our friends who like to sit in the front of the boat and enjoy the ride as well as myself who likes to sit up front and dig into the rapids. I would definitely do this again!

Freddy, I'm so glad you enjoyed the rafting. You'll have to come back during rainy season when they're roaring!!!
