Naranjo River 1/2 day trip

Class II & III (class -IV green season)

If you are looking for a fun packed half day rafting tour from Manuel Antonio, the Naranjo river for the action seekers is a must !

Just outside of Quepos, runs from April to December and is a consistently adrenaline pumping Class III and IV wild ride. It is recommended for the more physically fit thrill seekers. Your rafting tour starts on a 25 minute drive out of Manuel Antonio, through Naranjito and Villa Nueva, with surrounding lush forest and plantations, arriving at our own private put in place. Before getting river ready, we have a short walk through a working organic spice farm. Short there after you will be briefed on rafting safety and introduced to your PRO Rafting crew for the day!

The white water trip begins then, when the Naranjo River drops from the Costa Rican mountains and makes it way through pristine jungle gorges and canyons. It then winds its way around rocks and curves taking you on a wild, adventurous ride back down the river. After around 8 miles of thrill seeking rapids you will then drift to your take out area where a scrumptious snack of fruit and cookies will be waiting for you along with your transport back to your Manuel Antonio hotel.

What’s Your Adventure Level?

Adventure (Level)

For each of our trips, we’ve tried to provide an approximation of what adventure level (from easier to challenging) you should expect to encounter under typical circumstances. Many trips are suitable for reasonably-fit first-timers, but all our trips are made more enjoyable by a certain degree of personal fitness and an adventurous spirit.

Rating Levels for Whitewater Rapids

Standard (River Scale)

Choosing the right level of whitewater is the first step in making your whitewater rafting experience a success.

Class I
Swift current with riffles and small waves. Few obstacles, all obvious and easily avoided. Ideal for: Children aged four and older, first-timers, all adults.
Class II
Easy rapids with wide-open channels and medium-sized waves. Some maneuvering may be necessary to avoid obstacles. Generally, children four years and older may experience Class II rapids. Ideal for: Children aged four and older, first-timers, all adults.
Class III
Moderate rapids with irregular, medium- to large-sized waves. Waves large enough to cause a boat to capsize may be present but normally can be avoided. Quick maneuvering may be required to avoid obstacles. Generally, children seven years and older may experience Class III rapids. Ideal for: Children aged seven and older, beginners to intermediates looking for manageable thrills.
Class IV
Powerful rapids featuring boulder gardens, large waves and/or small waterfalls. Quick and precise maneuvering is essential for successful runs. Prior Class III experience is recommended, although aggressive first-timers looking for a challenge are generally accepted. Minimum ages will generally vary from 12 to 16 years. Ideal for: Adventurous individuals, intermediates or aggressive beginners looking for a challenge.
Class V
Intense and violent rapids with steep drops, waterfalls, massive waves and extremely constricted channels. Rapids may require “critical” maneuvering above dangerous hazards. Prior Class IV experience may be required. Participants should be in good health, capable swimmers and physically fit. A swim practice may also be administered by our guides at the river. Ideal for: Experienced paddlers and hard-core adventurers.
