Whitewater Kayak Lesson in Turrialba


per person

See why the Pejibaye is one of the best rivers in Costa Rica to learn to kayak! Beginner kayakers will use this section of river to work one on one with an instructor to practice their rolls, become more comfortable with eddy turns, and experience “pushy” water. More experienced paddlers can practice eddy turns, surfing, and slalom type ferrys and eddy catching. There are multiple spots along this run that allow for surfing in a kayak as well. You’ll get to experience just the right amount of rapids, rocks and swift water while paddling below the jungle canopy.
