Tenorio River section

If you are looking for the best rafting adventure in Guanacaste, then you should book the Tenorio River tour, which offers exciting class 2, 3 and 4 rapids in the middle of a dry tropical environment, typical of the province.

The tour offers medium and intermediate waves, technical movements to dodge rocks and fast water channels, with occasional drops and parts of slow water movements.


The course includes 8 miles of pure adventure, with intermediate to strong rapids. During the rainy season, the volume of water increases and it becomes an even more fascinating ride. However, even during the dry season, the river offers enough power to make the descent a worthwhile adventure.

The contrast of the dry tropical forests and the refreshing water as well as the natural surroundings create the perfect setting for an adventure that combines adrenaline, fun and ecotourism.
