Are you ready for a real adventure? Our 2 day, overnight whitewater rafting trip here from Manuel Antonio is a true trip of a lifetime for those of you looking for something different and getting off of the beaten track.
This 2 day overnight rafting trip and adventure will begin with a transfer from Manuel Antonio to San Isidro de el General, the most important town on the southern Interamerican highway, located on the southern slope of the Chirripo National Park.
A commercial center of coffee farms, cattle ranches and plant nurseries. We will drive east to “El Llano”, a small town in the middle of the mountains where our white water adventure will begin. After a safety talk by one of our professional bilingual guides we will start running continuous class III and IV rapids on the Division river, the main tributary to the Savegre river, one of the most pristine rivers in the country surrounded by impressive views of primary forest.
Carving its way through rainforest-covered valleys, the Savegre is an amazingly beautiful river. The first day includes some challenging Class IV- rapThe trip will continue through one of the most remote canyons on the Savegre river passing rapids like “Cinderella” and “Malibu”. We will arrive at our mountain lodge, with a little touch of Africa, the place where we will spend the night. Here we will be hosted by the south African family that runs the place, sleep in luxury safari tents with private baths, fire heated hot water showers and a swimming pool with a water slide. You’ll see fascinating wildlife and breathtaking scenery and you can relax and take in the local culture. At our jungle home you can fish, hike to a waterfall, or just laze in a hammock. We’ll prepare a sumptuous barbecue dinner before turning in for the night listening to the sound of the jungle.
A traditional Tico breakfast the next morning is followed by a day of rafting on the incredible Lower Savegre
After a good night rest, we will begin our second day running “La boca del Diablo” a class III rapid that will wake us up! We will continue our descent on the Savegre river running class III and II rapids all the way down to the bridge on the Pacific Coastal Highway, where our transport will be waiting to meet us and drive us north to Manuel Antonio.
