Costa Rica kayak trips since 1990
Kayaking in Costa Rica is not considered a once in a lifetime opportunity – but the first of many extraordinary trips to paddle the rivers we personally hold dear to us. Costa Rica is frequently described as “world renowned for its vast ecosystems, advanced conservation programs, stable political climate, friendly citizens and fantastic paddling.” Travel to and then around Costa Rica is easy.

With its eco-tourism, easy access throughout the country, the rivers to be run, and camaraderie developed within the group, Costa Rica is a trip you can enjoy with us year after year.
