Sarapiqui Rafting

Located near Arenal Volcano, the Sarapiqui is the only option for rafting with children under 12 years of age (minimum of 8 years old). The class II and III rapids break up calm stretches of the river. Plenty of time is available to hop out of the raft and free float alongside.

A minimum age of 12 allows a more challenging tour with class III and IV rapids spanning over 14 miles of river with 30 rapids. The lush landscape features stunning rainforest and beautiful cascading waterfalls. For those age 14 and over, our primary recommendation is the Pacuare river, depending on your itinerary, of course.
