El General River
Location: Costa Rica
“Rio El General” runs through a very isolated canyon, winding many miles on its journey from mountain to sea. The remoteness of the canyon and length of the river mean most trips last 3-4 days.
Level of Difficulty: Class III-IV / Intermediate
During the rainy season, the waters of El General create high volume whitewater with impressive waves and powerful currents. Class III-IV rapids on the commercially rafted San Isidro-El Brujo section make this a good adventure for adventurous beginners or experienced rafters.
Scenery: Remote Canyon, Isolated Wilderness
El General river rafting trips offer a chance to explore an isolated rainforest canyon, far from developed Costa Rica.
Season: September – November
Whitewater rafting trips are available during Costa Rica’s rainy season, typically Sept-Nov.
