Whitewater rafting on the Río Colorado, a fun class 2-3 river.
Check Pricing & Availability
River rafting on the Río Colorado is an adrenaline-inducing experience you’ll never forget. The pristine whitewater river that originates from inside Rincón de la Vieja National Park has a powerful flow that has cut a deep canyon into the countryside along its way down the mountain.
This perfect introduction to the beautiful sport of rafting will take us navigating down the fun class 2-3 rapids (during approximately one hour), enjoying the views of the breathtaking canyon around us.
Don’t worry if you don’t know how to paddle, because you will have a guide with you. If you are not comfortable rafting, no problemo! You can instead choose to travel down the river on your own personal inner tube. This day is sure to bring thrills (and chills) to anyone who dares to try the Colorado river rafting experience.
You’ll also have the choice of rafting in a two-man raft with your own personal guide behind you to maneuver the rapids, or use an inner tube. Either way, you’ll go over five miles of class 2 and 3 rapids on the Colorado River surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Along the way you can stop at a calm portion of the river to jump off a rock or swing into the river on a rope.
After the action we’ll have a delicious Costa Rican lunch buffet with choices of soup, salads, rice, beans, potatoes, vegetables and either fish, chicken, beef or pork.
What to wear/bring: Clothes to get wet in, towel, camera, sunscreen, binoculars, insect repellent, water shoes or running shoes (not flip-flops) and change of clothes for after the tour.

Our January 12 to the 22 stay was our second trip to Villa la Sata. We didn’t think it could get any better but this was a very special time in this extremely special place. For all our experiences here in Guanacaste this Estate cannot be matched. The village of Flamingo provides varied opportunities for dining and entertainment. Whether at Angelina’s, Coco Loco or La Forketta the food was amazing. The in home chef Jean Luc was the BEST! The beauty of the white sand beach of Flamingo is unparalleled. The staff at Villa la Sata was extremely accommodating. There was no better way to escape the cold of Montana. We will return yet again, Michael Snow

It would be tougher to spend a week in Costa Rica in a nicer home than Villa La Sata. Not only is it centrally located to the “hopping” area of the Pacific Coast side of Costa Rica, it is positioned on the property and Bay perfectly.
A view of over 180 degrees of the ocean is breathtaking. The home is beautiful, updated and unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime vacation home.
This will go down as the nicest home we have ever spent time in, on vacation.

We stayed at Villa La Sata, in Costa Rica for a few days in February. It is a very special place which is beautifully appointed with detail after detail. I can’t imagine a better location in the world to soak up the sun on its terraces, perched on a cliff overlooking a mile or so of wonderful beach. We had magnificent sunsets every night that were among the best I have ever seen. My wife was in heaven as she cannot miss a sunset.

Staying at Villa La Sata was an amazing experience! The views were immaculate and the villa was very impressive… I loved waking up to the sound and site of the beach each morning.
The fact that you can see the water as the front gate opens and from every room is why I would consider this the Gem of Flamingo. I’ve never experienced anything like the sunsets here as well. As a videographer and photographer it was more than just a paradise it was Heaven.
