Costa Rica is one of the Best Places in the World for Rafting. The rainforests form heavenly rivers that are excellent for this sport, and we choose rivers without dams for a natural ride.

The rivers’pectacular scenic beauty and tranquility combined with emotions and adrenaline makes it the perfect balance for an adventurous day. 

With the tours from  Villas Río Mar Hotel Resort, both the adventure some beginner and the more experienced rafter can enjoy our white river rafting trips.



The Coto Brus River is known for its beautiful scenery, the lush greenness that surrounds it, and the diversity of wildlife that you can find on the banks of the river. Since other boaters are rarely found there, it is basically a virgin river for rafting. It is simply an unforgettable adventure. Along the river we make a stop where you will have lunch and have a chance to rest so you can be ready for more action.
