  • About the tour

    The wild and ever-changing Naranjo River White Water Rafting challenge is recommended for physically fit adventure seekers and experienced rafters who are familiar with Class III and IV rapids. This high-octane, half-day adventure begins when the Naranjo River drops steeply from the Costa Rican mountains and pushes through pristine jungle gorges.

    It then winds around rocky curves to take you on a wild, adventurous ride back to sea level. While your internationally trained, bilingual guides and safety kayakers work with you to navigate this exciting river, you will swiftly pass stunning farmlands, working cattle ranches, and beautiful African palm plantations. Unlike the Savegre River Adventure, the Naranjo River rafting trip packs all its punches in a 7-mile ride that keeps your adrenaline level high for several hours. Water levels can rise rapidly on this Costa Rican treasure of a river, especially during the rainy season (May-October), which creates a small margin for error for any experienced rafter.

    After this adrenaline-packed trip, enjoy local snacks and refreshments before heading back to reality… well, back to Manuel Antonio anyway. If you’re strongly compelled by our ever-changing adventures out here, you just might feel inclined to come back for more.
