  • river kayak sarapiqui

River Runs are for one day, one week or more. These guided kayaking trips are on the Sarapiqui River, Poza Azul, Toro, Puerto Viejo, Pacuare, Sucio, Chirripo, Tres Amigos, Balsa, Toro Amarillo or any river in the country. These kayaking trips give advanced beginners a chance to gain experience and provide intermediate kayakers the opportunity to paddle a new river. While these trips are not instructional clinics, they are a wonderful way to practice your kayaking techniques under the leadership of qualified instructor.

River Running:

Paddlers participating in River Runs should be able to perform eddy turns, peel outs, ferries, and unassisted self-rescues. They should feel comfortable in Class II white water.
