The runs near the Caribbean coast of this Central American country are short, but get the heart pounding. One of the region’s most famous is a 20-mile stretch of the Cangrejal River, which drains into the sea from the heart of the Nombre de Dios mountains. The upper and middle portions are strewn with Class V rapids, but become more navigable as the river plummets through the jungle, down to Class II through IV runs in the lower section. Omega Tours runs eight-hour trips, starting in the upper section, for $135.
