Savegre Class ll-III.
Savegre Class ll-III.
"The Savegre is a magnificent stretch of coastal whitewater", and is considered one of the cleanest rivers in Costa Rica. Playful rapids and big splashes make this river the best tour for kids ages 6 and up and adults up to 80. Upon your request we'll use the back frame, which enables the guide to have full control of the raft, thus nobody in the raft is required to paddle.
It is not the destination, it is the journey. It takes 1 ½ hours through african oil plantations, teak reforestation projects, rural communities and incredible landscapes to the river put-in.
Before we begin our rafting adventure we’ll give a safety briefing and paddle talk. Today we begin by maneuvering rapids such as “Rafiki”, “Roller Coaster” and “Washing Machine”.
We stop for a short hike and nice swim at a waterfall near the river shore. We will prepare a snack while you enjoy the fresh pool at the bottom. Continuing down river we enjoy some more mellow and fun splashy rapids and just before the end we hit “Santo Domingo” rapid and rejoing with our transport.
We then stop for lunch in a costarrican family home. It is an authentic cultural experience to meet the Castro's and live their hospitality. Would this be your first lunch cooked over fire wood?
