This adventure starts with an early drive south of Quepos on
our a/c minibus. It takes 1 ? hours through african oil plantations, teak reforestation projects and incredible landscapes to the river put-in.
After a safety briefing you start maneuvering rapids like Boca Diablo and Washing Machine. You stop on the river shore for a snack of fresh fruits and cookies to then continue the river journey. Before the end you hit Screaming Child rapid and then the river tames down until you meet with the mini bus. A five minute drive will take you to Silencio Lodge where a hot Costa Rican meal will be served on your table. After lunch is a 50 minute drive back to Quepos
