Ríos Tropicales was created in 1985 to share the beauty and abundant white water of the rivers of Costa Rica with the rest of the world. Our commitment to high quality, safety and personable service have helped us become the largest white water rafting and sea kayaking outfitter in Latin America. Ríos Tropicales has been recognized internationally for its efforts in conservation, reforestation and education of the local population.

The owners and guides have not only explored and developed rivers in Costa Rica, but also around the world. Authors of "The Rivers of Costa Rica" and proud expeditioners, our guides have experience unmatched by any other local company in Costa Rica. They have participated in Olympic games, and several rafting and kayaking World Championships.

White Water Rafting
Costa Rica offers some of the world's finest whitewater rafting and kayaking rivers. Wild and untamed, these big, brash rivers plunge through spectacularly beautiful, largely unexplored tropical wilderness. Enjoy with us our tropical rivers, whether an expert or beginner, nature lover or thrill seeker, rafting enthusiast or active kayaker, one of our expeditions is for you. - River Descriptions & Rafting Packages

Reventazon Packages
No need for an early wake-up call, you'll leave San Jose by mid morning, driving through Braulio Carrillo National Park to our Operations Center; where a delicious hot lunch awaits you. After changing into our river gear we take a short shuttle to our private river put-in. The river fun starts with an exhilarating and continuous set of rapids, in this dam-controlled river, that will keep your adrenaline flowing! Coffee, pastries, showers, optional drinks, souvenir store and our "daily p.m. parakeet conference" will follow this unforgettable full day adventure before the return drive to San José.  - Reventazon Packages

Sea Kayaking
With 635 miles of shore line along the Pacific coast and 132 miles on the Caribbean, and both oceans fed by literally hundreds of rivers, Costa Rica offers unequaled opportunity to enjoy the rapidly growing sport of sea kayaking. Sea kayaking is a natural way to experience our beautiful Costa Rica. Devised by ancient Eskimo tribes, the sea kayak has evolved into a stable, efficient and extremely sea worthy craft which makes wildlife observation excellent and totally unobtrusive. No experience is necessary to control the kayak for the first time. - Sea Kayaking Package

Fundación Rios Tropicales

Fundación Rios Tropicales is a private, non-profit organization working under the auspices of Ríos Tropicales. It was founded in 1994 because of the increasing concern over the hydroelectric projects proposed on the Pacuare and Reventazón Rivers, and the well-being of the surrounding communities. The Foundation functions independently; however, the issues on which it focuses are of interest to the majority of the customers of Ríos Tropicales and all river runners, as well as to all environmentally concerned individuals.
