Welcome to the official website of the Sarapiqui River Festival. The Sarapiqui River Festival was born as a strategy to promote the importance of conserving and protecting our beautiful Sarapiqui River while promoting river sports and providing local youth and families the opportunity to get on the river and try out rafting and kayaking.
The Sarapiqui River Festival is presented and organized by a local community organization, Chilamate Activo, with generous support by local and international organizations, businesses, and people.
The 2016 Festival will take place on December 2, 3, and 4, 2016!!! Mark it on your calendar! We are currently in the process of planning the logistics and finalizing sponsorship and will update soon!
