What You Can Expect
You’ll be picked up in the early morning at your San Jose hotel for the scenic drive to the launch site, where your experienced guide will present a safety briefing and provide all necessary equipment. Then, experience the thrill of rushing down Class III and IV rapids surrounded by the majestic beauty of the rain forest.
Take a break from the action for a delicious picnic lunch on the riverbank. Head back out onto the river to continue your journey, for a total rafting time of 3 to 4 hours, depending on water level and speed.
This was the best river we have ever rafted on. Our guide, Ray, was fantastic and he pointed out key points along the way. The trip is long and involves a great workout but well worth the money and time. When we return to Costa Rica in the future we will definately go down the Pacuare River again. It was the highlight of our trip!
Great experience!!! Would do it again definitely
Thrilling ride! I can't wait to do it again! The tour guide was awesome.
Great staff! had a great time! I highly recommend this experience.
What a day!! We did this on day one of our holiday in Costa Rica .. and what a welcome it was!
So much fun! The river wasn't at it's highest when we went, but still an incredible experience. It was so good, we decided to go rafting again on another river. This was the better river by far.
This was a wonderful trip. The guide on the bus gave us great information about what to expect and what to do on the river. He also gave us information about the country. Our guide on the river was very good he made the trip fun and exciting. I felt well taken care of the whole time. I have always wanted to do this and I am glad I did.
LOVED every minute of this tour! we started off the day with a 6:15am pickup at my hostel in san jose. then we drove an hour and half to the tour company's operations center for a good hearty breakfast. after that, we drove a little more to the pacuare river with class 3-4 rapids. my friend and i did this at the end of may, during rainy season so the rivers were full of water and super fast moving. apparently, the water levels were so high and fast that we finished the course in 2 hours, instead of the usual 4 hour it takes to traverse the course. after getting absolutely soaked and knocked down by massive rapids, we went back to the operations center, took a shower in their well-kept shower facilities and ate a delicious lunch. also, there's a photographer in a kayak taking pictures of all the participants on the course- my tip is to purchase the photo package with your raft members- it's around 10/person and they will send you a link to the pictures online where you can then download. this is my first time doing whitewater rafting- it was intense and an adrenaline-filled adventure and i would totally do it again in a heartbeat!
Excellent guides, food was great! Had the best time. This was my 2nd time with this company. Will do it again.
Fantastic trip. Didn't know exactly what to expect, but turned out it was 27km of some of the best rapids in the world. Beautiful scenery. Our guide Mathias was one of the most professional and reassuring guides I've ever met in any adventure sport. A must.
Our whitewater rafting tour was one of our favorite things we did in Costa Rica. Our tour guide was personable and knowledgeable and kept us safe. We had so much fun! Beautiful scenery and a good length of time I think we were on the river for about 4 hours. The river was kind of low at the time we went February, but it wasnt too low or too high, so we had medium-sized rapids. So fun. The only advice I would give is to eat a lot at the breakfast they provide or bring a snack for right before you get on the water, because we did get pretty hungry by the end but they provide a late lunch after the raft trip. We would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Costa Rica.
