Pacuare White Water Rafting
After an early morning pickup from your San Jose hotel, you will drive by private, comfortable bus to our Cairo Operations Center for a delicious, typical Costa Rican breakfast. After breakfast and changing into rafting gear, we will drive to our private rafting put-in on the banks of the Pacuare river.
At our put-in, we review and adjust all necessary equipment for proper fit, give you a comprehensive rafting safety talk, and instruct you on paddling basics. You’ll be excited to launch your raft and begin to paddle 14 miles deep into the heart of one of Costa Rica's most impressive primary rainforests.
You’ll pass through densely vegetated rainforest gorges, view cascading waterfalls, relax in serene pools and experience pounding rapids.
Halfway down the river you will pass right beside the Rios Tropicales Lodge, our unique eco-lodge where guests stay on our 2, 3, and 4-day multi-sport adventure trips.
Self-powered and intimate, the lodge blends naturally into the rainforest on our 1,000-acre private reserve, complete with waterfalls, quiet pools, and miles of trails.
