What To Expect
Ground transportation is provided from most Playa Hermosa, Playas del Coco or Playa Ocotal area hotels. You will be picked up around 7:30 am (departure times can vary approximately 30-45 minutes prior so please call to verify time of pickup for your hotel).
Your shared transportation stops at hotels to pick up other rafters, but once all are on board it is around a 45-minute drive to meet the rafting crew. There you will get fitted for rafting vest and helmet. Then you are on your way in 4 X 4 vehicle to the put-in spot on the bank of the Tenorio River. Once you arrive at the river, guides will unload boats and paddles and teach you what you need to safely navigate the river. You will soon know the terms like "high-side left" and when you need to paddle or back-paddle. You are part of a team and it is vitally important that all rafters participate in the fun and adventure!
The four-man rafts are designed to navigate the narrow Tenorio, with some really wild rapids and incredible drops. The backdrop of the primary and secondary dry forest are a stunning sight and monkeys, lizards and birds can be seen and heard as you travel down the rapids.
At the end of the rapids, you will disembark, help stow the gear and head to the Rio Corobici for a delicious hot lunch. Beers and soft drinks are not included, but are available for purchase. Professional photo package is also available if you want to get some excellent shots of the action-packed trip. Don't forget to bring some cash to tip your rafting guides!
After lunch, you will head back to your hotel on your shared transportation. This day is sure to be a highlight of your trip.
