In other words, without paddling hard through white water rapids, you still get to enjoy one of the best river rafting trips in Costa Rica!! Although Peñas Blancas River is considered slow moving, you, your guide and the rest of the group will work together as a team to move your raft along the picturesque surroundings of Costa Rica’s rainforest. That means minimal paddling but maximum fun!
