Class of the River
The Pacuare River is ranked as one of the top five rivers in the world to white water raft. What earns the Pacuare River this acclaim is its eighteen miles of class III and class IV rapids and some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of Costa Rica.
We provide experienced, specialized rafting guides, top of the line equipment, and a day full of safe and exciting adventures on the Rio Pacuare. Rafters who choose our two-day trip have the opportunity to enjoy many different elements that the Rio Pacuare has to offer other than its fantastic rapids and breathtaking flora and fauna.
We begin the tour near the little town of Tres Equis located one hour east of Turrialba. Before entering the river, our guides give an important safety talk, familiarizing rafters with the necessary commands and safety instructions that you will need on the river. Halfway through the first day you will reach our campsite which is located on a hillside in a bend of the river so you have a tremendous view of the Pacuare and the surrounding mountains.
You can spend the afternoon relaxing around camping or exploring the rainforest. In the evening the guides prepare and serve a delicious dinner that is all by candlelight. When you are ready for bed, you will comfortably sleep in our special bungalows which are spacious tents on wooden platforms with two beds each and a unique view of the Pacuare River.
In the morning you will wake up to the joyful singing of a variety of birds around the campsite. After breakfast, you can choose to rest and hangout at the camp or you can hike with one of the guides to the indigenous reserve of Nairi Aguari.
There the community of indigenous people will welcome you into their homes and village as they are happy to meet and converse with new people. They also have a specific trade which is wood carving so you can look at the amazing work that they do and if you are interested, you have the opportunity to purchase wooden masks from them.
After lunch we continue rafting down the river enjoying what the second half of the river has to offer – many more exciting rapids and scenic views. The trip ends at the bridge in the town of Siquirres.
After exiting the river and leaving your equipment, the guides lead you to a small café where there are changing rooms and showers. There you can clean up and enjoy a nice cool beverage as the perfect end to your two-day adventure on the Rio Pacuare.
