Full description
Travel to the beautiful Sarapiquí region of Costa Rica for a full day of discovering natural wonders. This private tour combines the thrill of a horseback ride and a whitewater rafting down the Sarapiquí River. Begin your adventure early at your hotel where your naturalist tour guide will meet you. Hop on a luxury air-conditioned vehicle for a relaxing drive through the wonderful Costa Rican countryside. On the way, experience the beauty of the second-largest national park in Costa Rica, the Braulio Carrillo. The highway divides the park into 2 big sections, so you can enjoy breathtaking views of the pristine rainforest. Once on the Caribbean slope, learn about the local culture, the unique architecture of the Caribbean, the most important crops including bananas, cassavas, pineapples, heart of palm, cashews, sugarcane, and more. Nestled in the tropical rainforest is the Sarapiquí River. Visit this iconic tourist attraction. In the Upper Part, the river is perfect for whitewater rafting. The Lower Part supports boat tours, transfers, and fishing. Get ready for some fierce paddling downstream over class 2 and 3 rapids on a rafting adventure. A group of rapids is combined with slow relaxing stretches along 8 miles. Enjoy River Sarapiquí's crystalline waters. This is an unforgettable experience for birdwatchers and nature lovers. Continue to the next phase of your adventure. Climb aboard your trusty horse for a 1.5-hour horseback ride into the rain forest. Get a close look at the amazing flora and fauna. After all the adrenaline-fueled fun, sit down for a delicious lunch.
