Turrialba Kayak School – Costa Rica
The Turrialba Kayak School was created as a way to give back to the communities in Costa Rica and inspire a new generation of kayakers. Just outside of our home base of Turrialba, we have an incredible kayak slalom race course on the Pequibaye River. It was the site of the 2016 River Championships and is the ideal place for beginner and intermediate kayakers to learn to roll and perfect their turns on the river.
We offer a kayak school option for people to come to Costa Rica and learn to kayak, but we’re continually working to develop programs with local Costa Rican schools and community groups to introduce young “Tico’s” (native Costa Ricans) to the sport of kayaking.
We hope that by developing the younger generation, we will be able to grow a generation of locals that appreciates and respects the river as much as we do. We also hope the new generation will continue to spearhead efforts to protect our rivers from development so that future generations will continue to be able to enjoy the amazing gift we have in Costa Rica.
