Depart from San José or Arenal (La Fortuna)
We will pick you up from your hotel reception and head to the Pacuare River for a day of rafting. The Pacuare River is the best choice for your adventure treks in Costa Rica. It is world famous for its sheer beauty: A true river gorge flanked by steep, green walls. Here you enjoy the feeling of total isolation from urban life and the realness of being connected with nature. You see waterfalls cascade into the river from both sides as colorful, tropical birds fly right over your head.
The white water is equally exciting. It is not an overly challenging river, but it has a lot of rapids, therefore giving you an adventure filled with lots of fun. The 18 mile / 30 kilometer one day run includes a total of 52 rapids, class III IV.
After rafting we will drop you off in the beautiful south Caribbean town of Puerto Viejo.
Today is a free day to relax and enjoy the sand, surf and sun. Clear water, coconut palms and a laid-back Caribbean atmosphere make Puerto Viejo a favorite among travelers. Located on the Caribbean Coast, about an hour south of Limon, Puerto Viejo is the center of activity between the smaller villages of Cahuita and Manzanillo. The relaxed, seaside town is framed by jungle, turquoise seas and scenic rivers. Here amidst the exotic flora and fauna, lie vibrant seaside towns with gorgeous beaches and crystal clear waters.
