On November 23rd, 2013, the third Annual Sarapiqui River Festival kicked off with an extreme creek race for the regions best local kayakers and participants from as far as Manual Antonio. Native Turialban Arnaldo Cespedes Perez took home 1st place! It was a beautiful day but the competition was tough as the participants dared the awesome waterfalls at Poza Azul River, Sarapiqui, Costa Rica. PURA VIDA
