    White Water Rafting- Either Savergre or Naranjo depending on conditions Self Drive from Jaco Area hotels. Day #7 01 Jul 2021 - 30 Jun 2022     $59
    01 Jul 2022 - 15 Dec 2022     $59
    The wild and ever-changing Naranjo River White Water Rafting challenge is recommended for physically fit adventure seekers and experienced rafters who are familiar with Class III and IV rapids. On this high-octane, half-day adventure, the trip begins when the Naranjo River drops steeply from the Costa Rican mountains and pushes through pristine jungle gorges. It then winds around rocky curves to take you on a wild, adventurous ride back to sea level waters. While your internationally-trained, bilingual guides and safety kayakers work with you to navigate this exciting river, you will swiftly pass stunning farmland, working cattle ranchers, and beautiful African Palm Plantations. Unlike the Savegre River Adventure, the Naranjo River Rafting Trip packs all its punches in a 7 mile ride that keeps your adrenaline level high for several hours. Water levels can rise rapidly on this Costa Rican treasure of a river, especially during the rainy season (May-October), which creates a small margin for error for any experienced rafter. After an adrenaline-kicking trip, enjoy local snacks and refreshments before heading back to reality… well, back to Manuel Antonio anyway. If you’re strongly compelled by our ever-changing adventures out here, you just might feel inclined to come back for more. Includes bilingual guides, safety kayakers, all equipment needed, security, fruits and juice. Recommendations Wear or bring sturdy sandals or water shoes, a bathing suit, sunscreen, bug spray, towels, and a change of clothes. Requirements We strongly recommend that adventurers (adults and children over age 12) be physically fit and prepared for Class IV rapids. This adventure should not be taken lightly.
