Among all of the adventures available in this Central American country, a couple of the most popular among travelers are tubing or rafting in Costa Rica. That is because there are tons of rivers in Costa Rica with rapids for all levels.
Here is some info about Tubing and Rafting in Costa Rica:
If you’re into wild river runs, then rafting in the wet season (June thru October) is definitely for you. But if you prefer a calmer ride, you’re better off hopping into a raft in the dry season (November to April). Whatever your skill level, Rafting in Costa Rica is a great option. There are many beautiful scenic routes on many rivers perfect for rafting, so contact us to arrange the best tour package from one-day to multi-day tours with professional guides that are right for you.
