Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at your centrally located hotel in Tamarindo and drive for about two hours until you reach the rugged back roads of the Guanacaste countryside. Transfer to a 4x4 and ride the rest of the way to your starting point at a bridge over the Tenorio River.

Upon arrival, complete a thorough safety briefing and don a helmet and life jacket. Grab a paddle and begin your rafting trip, maneuvering over 22 rapids along 12.4 miles (20 kilometers) of water. Pause to enjoy a fresh fruit snack and view the local wildlife, such as iguanas, tropical birds, and howler monkeys.

Finish your journey with a final drop down the 12-foot Cascabel Falls, before heading back to the 4x4. Change into dry clothes and enjoy lunch before heading back to your hotel in Tamarindo in time to catch the sunset.

I never felt in danger as our guide Daniel was very experienced. He worked hard to set up the self-bailer raft to keep us upright. Getting pictures of the waterfalls was awesome. We are getting WOW's from all our friends. Our family are all rafters. Experience with rafting the famous Oregon's Lower Rogue River through trip which are 3's and 4's but the Tenorio falls are unique and made for a fantastic memory.

We were 2 couples and had 2 young kids with us (8 & 9 years). The kids had a blast and it was plenty safe for them. We even flipped over and all was fine.

This trip was a load of fun! Took a while to get there and we went over some bumpy dirt roads but was worth the drive. Daniel the terminator was our guide and made the whole experience even more fun! The waterfall natural pool was unexpected and beautiful. I would highly recommend.

I was scared to death to go white water rafting, but I am so glad that I did. It was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Our guide, The Terminator, was so much fun and so good at what he does! We had an absolute blast. The lunch and snacks provided were really good too! Highly recommended!!!!
