Adventure Rafting Class III and IV in Tenorio River from Playa Tamarindo


Meet your guide at your centrally located hotel in Tamarindo and drive for about two hours until you reach the rugged back roads of the Guanacaste countryside. Transfer to a 4x4 and ride the rest of the way to your starting point at a bridge over the Tenorio River. Upon arrival, complete a thorough safety briefing and don a helmet and life jacket. Grab a paddle and begin your rafting trip, maneuvering over 22 rapids along 12.4 miles (20 kilometers) of water. Pause to enjoy a fresh fruit snack and view the local wildlife, such as iguanas, tropical birds, and howler monkeys. Finish your journey with a final drop down the 12-foot Cascabel Falls, before heading back to the 4x4. Change into dry clothes and enjoy lunch before heading back to your hotel in Tamarindo in time to catch the sunset.
