This two day adventure begins with a transfer from Manuel Antonio/Quepos or San Jose * to Perez Zeledón, the most important town on the southern Inter-American Highway. After breakfast, we will drive east to "El Llano", a small community in the middle of the mountains where our white water adventure will begin. Our professional staff will gear you up and brief you on safety procedures before we start running continuous class III and IV rapids on the Division River, the main tributary to the Savegre River. The trip will continue through one of the most remote canyon sections on this river, surrounded by impressive views of primary forest, where we will maneuver rapids like "Cinderella" and "Malibu". At mid afternoon, we will arrive at "Rafiki Safari Lodge" or "El Brujo Lodge" , a wilderness resort with a touch of Africa to spend the night in luxury safari tents with private baths, fire heated hot water showers and a swimming pool with the fastest waterslide in Central America.
After a good night rest we will begin our second day running "La Boca del Diablo" a class III rapid that will wake us up. We will continue our descent on the Savegre River running class III and II rapids all the way down to the bridge on the Pacific
Coastal Highway, where our transport will be waiting to meet us and drive us north to Manuel Antonio.
