About the Costa Rica RAID

A new event that combines adventure-racing and environmental awareness through significant partnerships. The Costa Rica RAID International RIB-Adventure will consist of a series of 6 stages that will test the consistency, speed, and navigation skills of each team along the coasts of the Caribbean and the Pacific. Competitors will live a true water-based experience, reminiscent of the Dakar.

By creating an innovative adventure racing championship and carefully designing its course, we aim to contribute to promoting sustainable tourism in Costa Rica and attracting industry-specific foreign investments. Simultaneously, we provide racing and water sports enthusiasts with breathtaking entertainment.

Participants will be fully immersed in Costa Rica, experiencing its authentic cuisine, warm hospitality, and engaging with local communities at each stage. Beyond being a mere competition, the event is a true celebration of adventure and a sports media platform showcasing the country’s rich culture.

The winners win their boat as prize !

We’re thrilled to announce that the winner of our event will be cruising home with an incredible prize: their team’s race boat ! This isn’t just any win, it’s a chance to embark on new adventures and create lasting memories.
