During our recent stay at the Riu Palace, we opted for a white water rafting experience on the Tenorio River. Swiss Travel took our order in the hotel lobby and contracted with RCR for the tour. We were picked up by a shuttle bus @ 7:30AM, driven to the RCR depot, and then boarded another shuttle to the rafting site. The Tenorio River has Class III and IV rapids, our 4 person raft w/guide safely maneuvered through the raging waters in adrenaline pumped action! This was no float down the river and see the bird in the tree trek, this was serious, thrilling, OMG I can't believe it fun! Our guide gave patient paddling and safety instructions before we shoved off on our 2 hr adventure. "Big Mama" was the high point, a 12 foot washer drop, almost like a roller coaster, hurtling down, twisting, inundated by waves, emerging soaked and victorious! We had a Costa Rican lunch of rice and beans with chicken afterwards at a local restaurant that was included in the tour price and had the opportunity to purchase a disc of our adventure for $40. Look at these pictures and decide if it was worth it!
