Rafting on the Pacuare River in Costa Rica

Day 1 Pacuare River Rafting

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
A visit to Costa Rica isn't complete without experiencing rafting down the Pacuare River. Famous for its scenic views, the Pacuare is just as celebrated for its class III-IV whitewater rapids. The river and the Pacuare Protected Zone are located between the coastal lowlands and the country's highest mountain range. This pristine jungle region, considered one of the most important protected areas in Central America, is still inhabited by the Cabecar Indians. Your rafting trip begins with an early traditional Costa Rican breakfast, followed by a briefing on safety measures. Then we splash right into our incredible rafting journey. We plunge through mountain gorges, run long stretches of powerful rapids and weave our way through a rainforest alive with the sounds of howler monkeys, toucans, sloths and ocelots. A satisfying lunch of sandwiches, fruits and juice will be served along the edge of the river. While the guides prepare the food, rafters have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the spectacular surroundings. Join us for this beautiful -- and wet -- Costa Rica adventure!

This full day tour is approximately 10-11 hours with bilingual guides. You raft 20 miles on the Pacuare.

Class III-IV rafting suitable for children 12 and up. Class II-III rafting suitable for children 8 and up.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
