  • We did this river rafting, an exceptional experience. It's expensive ($80), but definitely worth the full. Duration of 4 hours with a lunch break at the half. The rapids (class 1 to 4) give good feelings, without too much fear, even if you're a little chicken. In bad weather it can be cold. In good weather the swimsuit is enough (swimming shorts is also nicer to women). Possibility to leave his car at the beginning of the course, it is not necessary to go back to Turrialba, which saves a lot of time. We did the tour with Tico's and I advise (material new, small groups).
