chilamatecostarica wrote 2 days ago:


 This years Sarapiqui Boater Cross took place on Friday November 21st, beginning at the bridge in La Virgen, Sarapiqui, and running 500 mts downstream. We had 27 participants from all over Costa Rica, the USA, Canada, Austria, Mexico, Ecuador and Peru!

Native Sarapiqueño Oscar Arguedas and Diego Solano (Pina) tied for first place. Johann Castor, also from Sarapiqui took 2nd place and Quinn Connell, from the USA took home 3rd place!

The race is open category, and consists of class two and three rapids. Participants compete in groups, and the fastest boaters in each heat advance to the finals to determine the overall winner. The race takes place on the Sarapiqui River in the province of Heredia, Costa Rica. Mark down November 20th, 2015 to participate in next years competition.

The Sarapiqui River originates in the Poas Volcano and feeds the San Juan River, which runs along the border with Nicaragua. It is the second-longest river in Costa Rica. This river is a commercial river for kayaking, white-water rafting, and other activities for the entire region. This river provides all levels of kayaking and rafting.
