Whitewater Paddling in Costa Rica/Mexico with Esprit... PURA VIDA!
Join us for an amazing adventure exploring the pristine jungle rivers of Costa Rica and Mexico! We offer an incredible array of whitewater paddling by canoe, kayak or raft on sections of river ranging from scenic Class 2 to challenging Class V!
Apart from the on river action our trips take the opportunity to experience both the country and its people. Side trips include wildlife spotting boat safari, an interpretive rainforest walk, Coffee, Chocolate and Pineapple production tours... we even visit a Serpentarium with world renown biologists. All trips include dinner as guests of friends in their home to give you a true "taste" of authentique Costa Rican/Mexican culture and cuisine.
If you are looking for an unforgettable paddling holiday in a truly natural and magnificent locale... join us this winter in Costa Rica or Mexico!
