Enjoy a full day doing Chiriqui River Rafting, you won’t regret it! Chiriqui Viejo is one of the best known rivers to enjoy white water rafting. The white water rafting operation is based in the middle of the Chiriqui Viejo Valley, which is on the border of Costa Rica in various sections. Starting from David, it is about a 40-minute drive and about 7 hours from Panama City.
This river offers by far the best white water rafting with relatively easy access. The river is 80 miles (128 km) long and originates on Cerro Picacho, passing through the beautiful mountainous town of Cerro Punta. The best time to enjoy this white water rafting tour is during the rainy season, June through December, as the water rises and offers more of an adrenaline rush.
This rafting adventure lasts for about two to three hours depending on the water level and is recommended for everyone above 12 years old, with or without experience.
