Rio Tenorio Whitewater Rafting – Class 3-4

The “Rio Tenorio” is Guanacaste’s biggest white-water river! Its pure waters originate from the virgin rainforest of the “Tenorio Volcano” National Park along the continental divide from where it winds its way through the Guanacaste mountain range along a deep, red-rock canyon surrounded by magnificent landscapes of the low tropical dry forest.

Helmets are mandatory - as is COURAGE!

We will enter the “Pozo Azul” section where we will start our rafting adventure that will take us over numerous rapids along 20kms (12 miles) of this famous river which will conclude with a super-exiting 12-foot drop down the “Cascabel Falls” into a natural pool.
