Whitewater Rafting in Turrialba, Costa Rica
Pacuare Whitewater Rafting Trip The Pacuare River has been recognized as one of the top five most beautiful raftable rivers of the world in the National Geographic Magazine. It is 18 mile, class IV section that has an excellent mixture of invigorating rapids and calm, scenic stretches. A deli-style lunch is provided on the river next to two large waterfalls. The length of the trip is about four hours, give or take depending on the water level. Its about one hour to reach the river from our office, and one hour and half to return. The drive is a great introduction, while we wind through jungle roads on our way to the river's put-in. There is little civilization surrounding the Pacuare, except for the rafters, and evidence of natives that your guide will point out. The pickup time in the mourning is at 9:00 am, and we will return at 4:00 pm. Rates: $80 per person, includes transportation and lunch.

We have trips almost every day, and we have trips for everyone. Rafting is an excellent way t o witness the beautiful and untouched landscape of Costa Rica. The rivers are isolated, and some are only viewable by raft. This leaves the door open to see amazing wildlife such as sloths, toucans, snakes, blue-herrings, and other exotic birds. Waterfalls are abundant on some rivers, while rapids are exhilarating everywhere. Not to mention, with our tropical climate the water in the rivers here are a soothing 65 degrees. There are many more encouraging aspects about coming rafting with us, but we will save that for when you arrive.
