We had a fantastic time on the river Sarapiqui with the wonderful Walter who guided us safely but also with plenty of excitement through the grade 2 and 3 rapids. Kids were very impressed by the "superman" rapid. Don't miss out.

We visited the Sarapiqui River as part of an organized tour. We participated in a boat ride during which our guide pointed out monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas and various types of birds. It was a great way to enjoy the river and nature.
