ADVENTURE CONNECTION LOGISTICS:
1) Your Adventure Connection van will pick you up at your hotel in the Arenal Volcano Area - be sure you are completely packed and that you have checked the hotel safe to make sure you haven't forgotten anything. Please be ready 5 minutes before the pick up time just in case we come a little early.
2) Please be dressed and ready for adventure! We try to be as efficient as possible on our Adventure Connections to maximize the fun you'll have on your tour. Please have a day pack ready with everything you'll need such as sunscreen, change of clothes, hat, secure shoes, etc. so you won't have to take time to change and get ready once we arrive at the tour starting point.
3) We will drive around the picturesque, but rather windy roads of Lake Arenal - get your last photo ops of our beautiful Arenal Volcano before heading toward the Valley of the Volcanoes where you'll see the Tenorio, Miravalles and Rincon de la Vieja volcanoes in the distance on the Guanacaste horizon.
4) We will make a quick stop half-way to stretch your legs and use the restrooms if you wish.
5) We then turn on to the Pan-American Highway and drive another 20 minutes to the Tenorio Adventure Route One Restaurant to meet up with fellow Safari Float adventurers and continue on about 5 minutes more to the bridge over the Tenorio River.
6) Once at the river, you will be provided helmets and a paddle and receive instructions about this informative float on a gorgeous tropical river. Be sure to have sunscreen as some sections are exposed while others have beautiful tree cover.
7) You will be on the river approximately 2 hours. At the end, you will load back up on your van and continue back to the Tenorio Adventures Route #1 Restaurant for a delicious traditional casado meal -- we like to say: "Have some FUN on Route #1!"
8) Continue on your Adventure Connection to your Guanacaste beach destination! We drop you off right at your hotel. Door to door service!
Many people ask us how to travel from Arenal to Guanacaste. The Guanacaste Transfer with Tour is a great Costa Rica white water rafting option. Your luggage stays in our vehicles and our driver stays with your items while you are doing your tour. We have private entrances and exits for our rafting tour locations. Extra transport charge for drop-off outside of our regular hotel zone.
If river conditions are unsuitable for the Río Tenorio, our head guide might make the call to change to a back-up river of a similar level and/or offer another tour – you're always guaranteed a fun, but safe day! You get a full refund if no tour is run.
