The ‘Pura Vida'(‘Good Life') in Costa Rica is not, as the saying goes, a long, quiet river... to the delight of kayakers, white-water rafters, and those who enjoy ‘tubing' (using large inner-tubes as flotation devices). The country is well watered by rains throughout the year and completely crisscrossed by rivers and small streams, some of which are great for turbulent water activities. These are practised through courses for beginners, or outings accompanied by a guide--at full speed for the thrill, or more calmly to take the time to observe the rich fauna and flora on the banks of the Rio Sarapiquí. Another very famous descent is the Rio Pacuare, further south. You will never tire of rowing, in joy and good humour.
