Our Adventure Combo: white-water-rafting at Rio Sarapiquí and Canopy in one day.
A great combination. Rio Sarapiquí offers an unforgettable adventure in one of the nicest landscapes in Costa Rica. You will be in tropical rainforests, a fantastic nature and will see a lot of wild animals in the land of the Cabecar.
The Start is early in the morning, crossing the Braulio- Carrillo National park to begin with the rafting tour. The Sarapiquí River is not so dangerous: anyway it is a lot of fun with great guides in a mysterious nature. Then we combine the class III rafting with another adventure- Canopy. Canopy Zip- Lines – typical Costa Rican like rice and beans: to fly from one tree to the next above the tropical jungle. Enjoying view and freedom of a bird?
Experienced guides will help you.
Climbing up to the platform.
Small groups and a lot of security.

Passing Brauilo Carrillo National Park.
This is possible! We would like you to explore the rainforest from a completely different perspective - tourism with thrill!
Canopy allows you to dash over the trees in heady heights from one platform to another platform. This is a wide-spread way in Costa Rica to go off for jungle tours, being subject to strict security restrictions. Equipped with a helmet, safety belt and thick gloves out of leather (to be able to brake) you will climb up to the platform on one of the giant trees. There you will find a strong wire rope fixed at the trunk leading to another platform that you might not see because it is up to 1km away.
To make you feel completely comfortable on your trip, various guides with the best preparation for that job, will give you security instructions in various languages. Despite these safety regulations, the thrill does not get lost and it is definitely is very popular in Costa Rican like rice and beans. So don´t miss it!
