I am wondering if anyone has done this White Water Rafting at the Reventazon River? I am going on the Brilliance of the Seas (RCCL) and My biggest concern is the length of time it takes. RCCL says the excusion is 8 hours long with at 90 minute bus ride to get you to the river.
If it is going to be a long day, is the river and the rapids so fun that it is worth the long day? I have done White Water Rafting in the states a few times and thouroughly enjoyed it.
19 cruises total on all different lines including RCCL, NCL, Celebrity, Princess, Holland America and Sea Dream. Our 20th Cruise is October 2007 on the Mariner of the Seas.
We were on the Brilliance in Dec and went on this tour. It is a very long bus ride, but saw beautiful scenery. I have done white water rafting before and this was not as exciting as I am use to. The water was low, so there wasn't many challenging rapids. It is a 9 mile ride and after wards you will have a authentic Costa Rica dinner. (Loved the fruit cocktail)

I went to the Sloth Sanctuary being an animal lover, but some of my friends on the ship went white water rafting, I heard it was wonderful and many brought the video. I did hear it wasn't the most challenging but still 2 people fell out of the raft so the rapids can't be that tame! Give it a try, if I get the chance to go I think I will try it myself.
