Considered one of the cleanest rivers in Central America, the Savegre is an authentic full day adventure: relaxation and pure action while enjoying the fantastic landscapes.
This adventure starts with an early drive south of Quepos on an air conditioned minibus. It takes 1 ½ hours through African oil plantations, teak reforestation projects and incredible landscapes to the river put-in. On the way there you will stop at Santo Domingo mountain village to set a lunch order. Soon after, you will arrive to Rio Blanco, where you will have a safety briefing before you start maneuvering rapids like “Hurricane Rita”, “Boca Diablo” and “Washing Machine”. You will stop for a short hike and nice swim at a waterfall on the river shore. A kilometer down river is lunch: a “casado” i.e. rice, beans, vegetables and your choice of fish, chicken or plain omelet, served next to the river on a very traditional way. Before the end you will hit “Santo Domingo” rapid and then the river tames down until you meet with the mini bus. We will load the gear and is a 50 minute drive back to Quepos before 3pm.
