Reventazón RiverThe Reventazón (reh vehn tah SOHN) gathers its waters from the rugged core of the Cordillera de Talamanca. Some of the upper tributaries drain the wettest parts of the country. By the time they have gathered enough volume to float a boat but have lost enough gradient so as not to destroy one, the river still is at an elevation of almost 4800 feet (1450 m). Whitewater can be found on the Reventazón all the way to Siquirres, at an elevation of 150 feet (45 m). The entire reach of runnable whitewater is 60 miles (100 km) long, rivaling the length of the General. Unlike the General, there are many points of access along the way, enabling paddlers to choose from a wide variety of day trips.

FLORIDA SECTION (CLASS III)

If you're a first-time or experienced paddler looking for the excitement of big waves, hydraulics, and stunning scenery, then this trip is for you. The Florida section of the mighty Reventazón River is some of the fastest and best 10 miles of Class III rapids you'll ever paddle!

The drive from San Jose takes you through the impressive Braulio Carrillo National Park, past rain forest and waterfalls across the Continental Divide to the Caribbean side of the country.

At the Operations Center you will have breakfast, there are bathrooms, changing rooms and an area to buy last minute needs. After your safety orientation, the first rapid of the day will set the pace for more to come. As your raft rounds each new bend in this dam-controlled river, you'll be greeted with yet another breathtaking view of the Reventazón Valley. Look for toucans, kingfishers, herons, tanagers, iguanas and bright green "Jesus Christ" lizards.

After a fun and exhilarating day of big waves, hydraulics and stunning scenery, you'll finish your trip with a stop at the Operations Center for a delicious hot lunch, showers, optional drinks and souvenir store before the return drive to San Jose. This one-day adventure is unforgettable!
