Savegre White Water Rafting
Price on request
This adventurous, family-friendly, full-day trip is a unique white water river rafting adventure with lots of “perks”. As the Manuel Antonio specialists, you can expect our world class, internationallytrained, bilingual guides and safety kayakers will expertly guide and teach you how to navigate through this exciting river experience. You and the fellow rafters will start slowly and build your way up to a breathtaking yet manageable adventure that will leave you either begging for more ( go on the Naranjo River high-octane trip next) or leaving completely satisfied and happy that you experienced one of Costa Rica’s famous rivers, the Savegre.
Starting with a 4x4 ride into the “wild” of Costa Rica’s tropical jungle with awe-inspiring scenery of more remote areas of the Savegre, your journey begins at “Silencio”. This is a little local village of thatched roof dwellings. After a “bumpy road” journey, you will enjoy a typical Tico breakfast before taking on the Savegre. Ensure that you make reservations for lunch, and don’t forget to meander through the beautiful flora and fauna of the surrounding African Palm Plantations. You´re now ready to head off into the winding mountains to start the rafting leg of your journey.
The Savegre River provides Class II, III and IV rapids that are manageable in sturdy rafts that accommodate 2 to 6 people comfortably. Our guides stop at locally known swimming spots and magnificent waterfalls (if the rafters want a break from paddling), and you´ll have the chance to enjoy the abundant variety of wildlife along the river. On most trips, rafters will observe egrets, osprey, toucans, parrots, king mackerels, cormorants, and many other species local to this protected area of the primary tropical rain forest. After a steady 13 mile trip down the river, we wind our way back to the little village of “Silencio” for a replenishing hot lunch “Tico Style” and local refreshments. Our satisfied, well-traveled, and now experienced Savegre River rafters enjoy a leisurely trip back home to Manuel Antonio
