Rafting down Tenorio River

Experience rafting 12 kilometers (2 – 2.5 hours depending on river level & time of year) of the Tenorio River, passing through sections which are dominated by over 22 class III-IV whitewater rapids..   During the smoother sections, take a look around at the lush, forested scenery and try to spot tropical birds perched high in the trees the opportunity to see plenty of other wildlife along the way such as iguanas and monkeys.. This unique rafting tour finishes with the thrilling 12-foot waterfall drop called “Cascabel Falls.”

When you arrive to the end of your exciting rafting journey at our private river exit, do a quick hike to the 4×4 vehicle to drive out of this isolated, unspoiled region of Costa Rica, and then head back to to the tour base in Canas.
