ARENAL SAFARI FLOAT BY CANOE

Go white water rafting at the scenic Sarapiquí river for class II and III. Our journey starts with a scenic drive through the Eastern portion of central Costa Rica.
We will travel through the beautiful pineapple, papaya and yucca fields with Volcano Arenal set in the backdrop. After a short safety briefing with our local professional guides we head down river.
With the lush rainforest as our backdrop you can expect 14 kilometres (about 10 miles), of unforgettable action and breathtaking nature. We stop mid way to "refuel" with refreshing tropical fruits. Our adventure ends with cold drinks followed by a well deserved Costa Rican typical lunch.
