Rafting the Rio General
Friday, May 22, 2009
El Rio General, where the Leadership and Multi-Element students are rafting for four days in Class III-IV rapids until Sunday, is located in one of the most biodiverse areas in the world called South Puntarenas. From rare species of birds to endangered animals, a plethora of wildlife can be seen in this part of Costa Rica, which cannot be found anywhere else in Costa Rica. Much of the flora and fauna in Costa Rica are indigenous.
Rugged and isolated, South Puntarenas is an adventure lover’s haven. The terrain is wild and in many parts unexplored, giving a feeling of mystery and seclusion (especially since this area is not easily accessible by road). But this is perfect for us at CRROBS because these are the adventures to which we are addicted, right?
This part of Costa Rica is home to the breathtaking Parque Nacional Corcovado along with many beautiful remote beaches and superb wildlife.
