White Water Rafting in Manuel Antonio
Perfect for All Adrenaline Junkies Outhere, Looking for an Extreme Adventure!
Costa Rica is well known for its incredible white water rivers taking you through stunning forests and home to an abundance of wildlife! For all you adrenaline junkies looking for an extreme adventure white water rafting in Manuel Antonio will not disappoint! There are three options in this area to choose from:
The Savegre River provides Class II & III rapids that are manageable in sturdy rafts that accommodate 2 to 6 people comfortably. Guides stop at locally known swimming spots and breathtaking water falls, if the rafters want a break from paddling, and there is always time to enjoy the abundant variety of wildlife along the river. After a steady 13 mile trip down the river, wind your way back to the little village of “Silencio” where a gladly awaited hot lunch (Tico style) and local refreshments are waiting.
A more challenging option is Naranjo river with Class III/IV rapids, packed in a half-day challenge for more experienced paddlers. The Naranjo River drops from the mountains above Quepos, through a beautiful jungle gorge and takes you on a wild ride to sea level passing nearby farmlands and palm plantations. In total you will raft 7 miles of intense and challenging twists, turns and running rapids like ‘La Piñata’, ‘El Cesar’ & ‘Robin Hood’. Along the river you will pass primary and secondary forests giving you the opportunity to spot birds like the Ringed King Fisher and White Ibis and possibly crocodiles that live in the river!
If you’re in search of pure, unadulterated and totally extreme whitewater, head straight for the incredible class IV-V rapids on the upper section of the Naranjo River, also know as ‘Choro’.
