Located north of San Jose in the mountains draining towards the Caribbean lies our base, a quaint eco-lodge in the Sarapiqui River valley. Our trip features 6 days on the river paddling the best of Costa Rican whitewater.
Our journey starts in San Jose where you will be met at the airport by your Esprit guides. From there it’s a 2 hour drive to our lodge where our paddling adventures begin. While on the river, we enjoy clean, warm, challenging whitewater and keep an eye out for some of Costa Rica’s abundant flora and fauna. The rivers abound with wildlife such as howler monkeys, three toed sloth, iguanas, the world’s most abundant and unique varieties of frogs, as well as tropical plants and birdlife (including Toucans) too numerous to count.
We try to include a daily “off the river” adventure to compliment our day of paddling. These activities include a wildlife spotting boat safari, rainforest hikes to beautiful waterfalls, its even possible to take an early morning stroll through the rainforest right out the front door of the lodge. Optional activities (at an additional cost), can be arranged including horseback riding, chocolate tour, serpentarium as well as zip-line/canopy tours. If you are looking for an exotic, exciting, and adventurous whitewater holiday well off the beaten track we hope you join us this season in Costa Rica!
