More-detailed information about our Río Toro class 3-4 whitewater rafting tour
near La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano: Bring on the adrenaline. Experienced and first-time rafters love the Río Toro for full-day, class 3-4 rafting.

The Río Toro offers over 45-continuous rapids along more than 16 kilometers of deep-canyon gorges and waterfalls where we often see sloths, monkeys and tropical birds, such as toucans and the Montezuma Oropendula. We operate small, personalized and private tours and we are the only company who runs the Río Toro!

Imagine rafting through exciting, action-packed rapids with names like “morning coffee,” “the Danish Taco,” “coco loco,” “the eraser,” and the famous “B-F-W!”

This thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime adventure leaves at 8:30am from our office in La Fortuna. The Río Toro is the closest class 3-4 river to La Fortuna and the Arenal Volcano – only 1 hour away!

Once at the river, our experienced guides will give you a thorough safety talk, 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 ages 13 to 55 and in good physical condition. Although you don’t need experience, rafters should know how to swim. Secure shoes and dry clothes to change into.

Please note: if river conditions are unsuitable for the Río Toro, our head 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!
