Your guides will then get you loaded up into our All-Terrain-Tenorio 4×4 and drive about 45 minutes across the rustic Costa Rican back roads, through gorgeous mountains and quaint villages until we reach the Tenorio River private put-in.
Your professional guides will give you a safety briefing about your rafting expedition including safety tips and technical instructions.
Now you’re ready to head out on your 2.5-hour journey down one of Costa Rica’s most famous rivers!
You’ll witness the impressive canyon of the Tenorio River along with many different types of flora and fauna – there is a unique contrast of the red rocks against the green plants that line the canyon. Your guide will try to point out birds, monkeys and other types of wildlife as you make your way through highly technical and tight rapids along the way.
Cool off in the exhilarating water of the Tenorio River as you cruise on down this amazingly exciting river in the middle of the Guanacaste landscape that will certainly remind you of a Salvador Dali painting! You’ll experience over 20 thrilling rapids, and finish the tour by going over Costa Rica’s most extreme whitewater rapids that we have named Cascabel Falls – an intense 12-ft waterfall drop!
After this rafting tour is over, you’ll be treated to some snacks and then hike a bit up to where your 4×4 transportation is waiting for you to take you back on another 35-minute ride back though wild, rustic Costa Rican roads to return to the Tenorio Outpost restaurant. You will have an opportunity to change your clothing and enjoy a delicious traditional Costa Rican lunch before heading back to your Hotel in Guanacaste after a perfect day of pure adrenaline!
