"For this tour we left from Tilaran to La Fortuna, met at Anywhere Costa Rica and the tour guide arrived shortly after. Fauri our guide knew who we were standing outside Anywhere Costa Rica office and off we went. 2 hour tour drive to Sarapiqui from there. Able to see Pineapple and other plantations on the drive. Fauri gave us a quick lesson we did Class 3 River rafting, and I have never done it before. Fauri was very professional and so was the safety Kayak gentleman as well as the driver. Rafting was a blast! Pura Vida! We had fresh fruit with mangos and pineapple half way down river and it was the best fruit I ever ate. We slowed to catch monkeys, tiger herons and tucans, Fauri always told us information about Costa Rica and the rainforest and animals during the lowtimes without rapids. The tour ended with a dinner at the end of the river at a restaurant and el pollo with rice and beans was delicioso as well. We were all very tired by the end of the day, so I'd like to thank Fauri and the other guides for being so helpful, professional and incredible."
Originating from clear mountain streams, the Sarapiqui River runs from the Central Mountain Range just north of San Jose to the San Marcos River which runs along the shared border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The river is considered a national monument because of the vital service it provided in transporting arms, goods and soldiers in the 1856 war against the filibusters.
