Considered one of the World’s Five Best White-Water Runs, the Pacuare offers some of the best white-rater rafting in the hemisphere. Winding deep into a primary rainforest and towering gorges, the lush vegetation gives way to dozens of silver waterfalls. Wildlife often peeks out from beneath the thick undergrowth, including jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths, and hundreds of other species of animals and birds.
After we pick you up at your hotel, we’ll travel on scenic Highway 34, which is the old road to Limón. We’ll stop for a tasty Costa Rican traditional breakfast on the way. The ride to the put-in at Tres Equis takes about two hours. Once you get there, our professional guides and rafting equipment will be waiting.
After a thorough safety briefing, the adventure begins. Your team will raft through thrilling class IV rapids, squeezing through narrowing openings between gigantic boulders and long stretches of fast, powerful rapids. Along the way, our guides will serve a very satisfying lunch of deli meats and cheeses, sandwich fixings, fruit and juice, all along the riverbank. During lunch break, you’ll have time to stop and admire the raw power of the pounding Pacuare river and the serene jungle scenery.
