Combine steep, rugged mountains and high rainfall, and the result is a perfect tropical cocktail for kayaking and white-water rafting. Ríos Tropicales has white-water rafting trips for all skill levels on various rivers, such as the Reventazón and the Pacuare, combining Class 4 thrills with tropical rainforest immersion. Near Manuel Antonio National Park, Amigos del Río offers half-day or daylong rafting trips on the Naranjo and Savegre rivers. In nearby Quepos, Iguana Tours leads kayaking trips through the bird-filled mangrove forests on the Central Pacific coast.—Christopher P. Baker
