fionaandclive
We will be visiting Coat Rica and staying at Puerta del Vieja Sarapiqui on early February next year. We are interested in rafting . Although we have rafted before in Sri Lanka I am a little nervous as I have read that the rapids can be some of the best in the world and that scares me! We are in our late 50's and reasonably fit. What wil the river be like in early February? And what do you recommend. I like the idea of the full day with lunch but we will be travelling form San Jose in the morning. When does that start and finish? Do you think it will be too much for us? Our travel agent has suggested the Pacuare River but that involves a 2 hour drive from San Jose and then another 2 hour drive to our hotel but she says the scenery is prettier than the Sarapiqui River. Is that correct? I look forward to receiving your recommendations. Fiona
