For most, the Sarapiqui River is synonymous with some of the best white water rafting and kayaking adventures in Costa Rica. Offering several stretches of Class III, Class IV and Class V rapids, the Rio Sarapiqui  and its feeder rivers traverse from the volcanic highlands all the way to the San Juan River Basin protected zone.

With names like La Virgen, Aguas Bravas, Chilamate and El Tigre, many towns in the Sarapiqui rainforest region offer vacation travelers plenty of choices for hotels, bed and breakfasts and cabin style lodging.

Downstream of the municipalidad city of Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui, many tour operators are available with naturalist guides for birdwatching and nature enthusiasts.

If you are driving from San Jose, you will take the Guapiles Highway to the city of Guapiles, then turn north toward Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui.
