Exploring Costa Rica is an endless set of unbelievable adventures! You literally can spend so many weekends traveling from mountains, to beaches, to rainforests and volcanoes. But we’ll let you into a little secret. You haven’t finished exploring the country until you have visited the astounding Savegre river!
Although you may have not heard about it, the Savegre is actually one of the perfect and unspoiled most rivers in the country. It is easily one of the most incredible stretches of coastal whitewater bordered by intense rainforests, canyons and waterfalls – yeah, we thought you’d be impressed!
Being such a beautiful attraction, there are tons of activities to do at Savegre. A quite popular one is visiting one of its waterfalls located in the San Gerardo de Dota town. Before getting to this gorgeous natural wonder, you will first need to hike for about an hour or so through the lush cloud forest. Once there, you’ll see why this one is a crowd pleaser! This splendid waterfall has a towering height of about 30 meters and it looks as if it were (literally) taken out of a fairytale!
Another great way to discover this river’s uniqueness is by experiencing its power. Savegre offers its adventurous visitors class II through IV rapids for a day full of explosive fun. You can choose to go on an exhilarating rafting ride, or on a softer, calmer journey so that you can admire the area’s spectacular tropical scenery.
For those of you looking for a more soothing-type of adventure, Savegre river also offers some great fishing opportunities. Simply bring your fishing gear, find a good place to park, and spend a relaxed day catching the area’s popular Rainbow Trout.
The Savegre river is quite close to San Jose (about a 3-hour drive), making it the perfect weekend getaway for family and friends. Because of its location and climate, a 4×4 vehicle is best, especially during the rainy season.
Visiting the Savegre river is mandatory when it comes to exploring Costa Rica. So don’t wait any longer and start planning a fun trip to this magical spot!
