Rio Toro Rafting: Unforgettable experience
The Río Toro explodes with a series of over 45 continuous class III-IV level rapids – you'll spend more than 2½ hours rafting through a mostly unexplored, tropical wilderness on a personalized (small group) tour. The exciting Río Toro is located only 1 hour from La Fortuna.
Experienced and first-time rafters will revel at the Río Toro during a full-day of class III-IV rafting. The Río Toro offers over 45-continuous rapids along more than 16 kilometers of deep-canyon gorges and waterfalls where one can often see sloths, monkeys and tropical birds, such as toucans and the Montezuma Oropendula.
Imagine rafting through exciting, action-packed rapids with names like "the Danish Taco," “Coco Loco,” “The Eraser,” and the famous “B-F-W!”. This thrilling, adrenaline based adventure departs at 8:30am from our office in La Fortuna. The Río Toro is the closest class III-IV river to La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano – only 1 hour away!
Once at the river, our experienced guides will go over in detail safety issues, get you set-up with your helmet, life jacket and paddle and then you're off – you'll be paddling for more than 2½ hours – we'll stop along the way for a nice, tropical fruit break and afterward we take you out for a typical Costa Rican “casado” lunch. You'll return to La Fortuna and the Arenal Area around 3:30-4:00pm (the Río Toro is located only 1 hour from La Fortuna – it is much closer than the Sarapiqui).
Rafters should be within the ages 13 to 55 and in good physical condition. Although you don't need experience, rafters should know how to swim and take with you secure shoes and dry clothes to change into.
Please note: if river conditions are unsuitable for the Río Toro, our lead guide might make the call to change to a back-up river of equal level and/or offer our half-day whitewater inflatable kayak or raft tour – you're always guaranteed a fun day on the river!
