Tulin River in Costa Rica.

Depending on the season, this river can be very low and calm, or can be quite high and rapid. With appropriate water levels and conditions, we will be able to have a great time splashing across the river at several locations. The shores are also an ATV playground area with small rocks, mud and sand in some areas.

The Tulin River starts near the town of Puriscal, then connects to the Chires river and finally lets out into the pacific ocean at Playa Hermosa.

Stop at Tulin Bridge for a group photo opportunity.

This is an old school (almost historic) iron bridge that connects Puriscal with Playa Hermosa, through small back country towns and villages. Most of the way on this scenic road (ruta 239) is compacted gravel with some recently paved areas.
