Pacuare River Rafting

Gordo our expert Guide
Gordo our expert Guide
This was by far the best day of the trip. I had not gone river rafting before and all of us were a little nervous. But, fear not! We had excellent instructions from Daniel on the ride to the outfitter. Each group of 5-6 were assigned to a guide. Our guide was Gordo and he had to be the best. He fitted us with helmets and life jackets and gave us more practice in the rafts before we started the float. We even practiced 'falling' out and rescue! Water is about 60 and very refreshing. Our trip down the river included paddling, floating, getting very wet, having a lot of laughs, lunch, and a great time. We were very tired at the end of the 4 hours. I would do this rafting experience again, I would have done it the next day! After rafting we transferred via bus and truck to the Selva Bananito Eco Lodge in the rainforest. We arrived at 5 pm and I had time to get settled in my cabin and try out my hammock before supper at 7 pm. Supper was excellent: beans, rice, beef, yucca, slaw, green beans and carrots with fresh papaya for dessert. The lodge manager/guide is Richard and he is going to be very helpful over the next couple of days. Back to the cabin for a good night rest. The only power is solar power and we do have lights and a warm shower. The cabin is very open. It is warm and humid and air circulation is essential. Under the mosquito net for the night!
