SARAPIQUI River Festival 2014, COSTA RICA

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 2014 Sarapiqui River Festival consists of three days filled with races of all levels and additional activities for the entire family. On Friday, November 21st, there is a Boater Cross Race on the Sarapiqui River, on Saturday, November 22nd, an Extreme Race on the Poza Azul River, and Sunday, November 23rd, an open race on the lower section of the Sarapiqui River, in addition to other competitions and family activities.  For the entire community we will have kayaking demonstrations, a kayak ramp, boats for use, local artists, informative stands, food vendors, and much more. A local Costa Rican band, Targua, will also be joining us for the fun.

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 meeting place for the festival is Chilamate Rainforest Eco-Retreat located in Chilamate, Sarapiqui, Heredia, Costa Rica. Lodging, food services, and tourism information are offered by the retreat. Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat is a family run conservation and sustainable tourism project that plays a major role in organizing this festival. The greater region of Sarapiqui also offers a wide range of accommodations, restaurants, and activities including zip lining, whitewater rafting, trekking, educational tours, and much more.

This year the grand prize award for the Master’s level race will be a flight to Mexico for the famous, internationally renowned Alseseca Race! Secondary prizes include paddles, helmets and much more!
