Looking for an exciting vacation that will provide thrilling adventure, breathtaking scenery, and exotic flora and fauna? Look no further than Costa Rica Rios and our many costa rica vacation packages. Our whitewater rafting or kayaking packages provide all of the memorable thrills of a lifetime. And they can be customized to your interests and ability levels.
The rivers we run in Costa Rica rise out of the mountain spine that divides the Atlantic watershed from the Pacific watershed. The Rio Sarapiqui rises out of the highlands on the eastern side of the cloud forests that are also home to Poas Volcano. The Rio Pejibaye and Pacuare River have headwaters out of the Talamanca Mountains. Each river has a distinctive nature, but all provide exciting whitewater and scenery.
The trade winds from the west bring copious amounts of rain down on the mountains as the moisture carried by the winds hits the colder air in the higher elevations. This abundance of moisture also provides unique ecosystems such as the cloud forests with their huge diversity of plant and animal life. When you travel the rivers, it’s not unusual to see anteaters, sloths, iguanas and capuchin monkeys along the way. Birds of all kinds, including the colorful toucan, parakeets, ospry, hawks, and blue herons, are as entertaining as the whitewater. The distractions of the scenery and wildlife can almost make you forget the adventure you came to experience.
The culture, people and cuisine of Costa Rica are also part of the draw. Our experienced guides always have your comfort and safety in mind. While you experience the adventure, our crew will create meals you will remember and your lodgings will always be comfortable and luxurious. The people you meet are the heart of Costa Rica and their charm and character will warm your memories forever.
