Starting with a 4x4 ride into the "wilds" of Costa Rica's tropical jungle with breathtaking scenery of
more remote areas of the Savegre, your journey begins at "Silencio". This is a little local village of
thatched roof dwellings where you can enjoy a typical Tico breakfast after a "bumpy road" journey, yet before you paddle down the Savegre. Make sure you make your reservations for lunch, and don't forget to meander through the beautiful flora and fauna of the surrounding African PalmPlantations before you head off into the winding mountains to start the rafting leg of your journey.
The Savegre River provides Class II, III and IV rapids that are manageable in sturdy rafts that
accommodate 2 to 6 people comfortably. Our guides stop at locally known swimming spots and
breathtaking waterfalls, if the rafters want a break from paddling, and there is always time to enjoy
the abundant variety of wildlife along the river. On most trips, rafters will observe egrets, osprey,
toucans, parrots, kingfishers, cormorants, and many other species local to this protected area of the primary tropical rain forest. After a steady 13 mile trip down the river, we wind our way back to the little village of "Silencio" where a gladly awaited hot lunch "Tico Style" and local refreshments are waiting.
