Tires (On the river)

Tours

Traveling on tires in the river is an activity very practiced in rural areas of the country and Sarapiquí is a vivid example of that, that is why we offer you the opportunity to enjoy this safe and fun activity. For this activity we have chosen the Sardinal River, a section that starts in the Palmitas community and ends at the La Quinta hotel facilities. The entire route is 4 kilometers with class 1 and 2 rapids, in other words, very easy.

The equipment we use is a tire specially designed for the activity, with safety handles and a special system designed to not allow the tire to tip over, which makes it very stable and safe. We will provide everything necessary for your safety, and a qualified guide will accompany you throughout the tour, which will last approximately 2 hours.

Recommendations::
