Whitewater Rafting Guide To River Trips

Reventazon River

Location: Costa Rica

The Reventazon River flows down Costa Rica’s Atlantic Slope on its way to the Caribbean Sea.

Level of Difficulty: Class III-IV / Intermediate

River rafters have two options for whitewater trips on the “Rio Reventazon.” Beginners and families with kids as young as 12 will enjoy the fun rapids on the Florida section. First time rafters as well as those with previous experience can check out the Class IV rapids of the Pascua section. Rapids like Horrendito and Indigestion provide many challenges on this 12 mile run.

Scenery: Rainforest Canopy, Toucans, Iguanas

River rafting trips on the Reventazon River offer a chance to see Costa Rica’s lush rainforest canopy and its inhabitants up close. Toucans, kingfishers, iguanas and herons are all common along the banks of the Reventazon’s unusually pristine and beautiful waters.

Season: Year-round

Dam-controls regulate the flow of water on the Reventazon, making 1-2 day trips available all year long.
