Reventazón River: Carmen Section

The Reventazón River is a great big water run, with moderate difficulty. The lush surroundings, abundant bird life and good amount of fun rapids makes this a great introduction to river running. This run is clearly divided in two halves. The first hour is very exciting, with big waves and long rapids.

We stop for a first class buffet lunch, a picnic at the prettiest beach on the river. The second half is more relaxed as the river enters the true lower Caribbean. The surroundings take on a jungle character and the wildlife is more plentiful! At the end we take you to our Exploration Center, where you can change, shower and relax.
