The seven and a half miles trip on the Sarapiquí River takes place between the community of La Virgen and Chilamate in Sarapiquí. It is a trip especially suitable for beginners and intermediates. It includes a very safe section formed by rapids followed by crystalline ponds. Along the journey one can enjoy four class III and about 20 class II rapids All of which have a good technical level. Our trip starts by picking up the passenger in their hotels in the Arenal area as of 9:00 a.m. During the journey, the guide will provide full details of the different towns we go through, their lifestyle, the characteristic of the natural environment and general information about their socioeconomic activities. Around 10:30 a.m we will arrive to Tirimbina in La Virgen de Sarapiquí. The 7.5 miles trip starts after listening to a safety talk given by the tour leader. The Sarapiquí River is characterized by its clear, almost pollution- free water thanks to the fact that not only few people live nearby but also its riverbanks are protected. Throughout the vibrant journey they will enjoy swimming and refreshing themselves in several peaceful ponds in addition to the thrill of defying rapids such as “gringo hollow”, “confusion”, “deer”, “roller coaster”, “air force” and among others. Half way to the journey, we will stop on the river and eat tasty tropical fruits of the season, prepared and served by our guides. At the end of the rafting trip after three fantastic hours filled with fun, the tourist can get dry and change their clothes before enjoying a hot lunch in our facilities on the river bank. Finally we start the trip back to the same route and to La Fortuna around 3:30 p.m.
