White Water Rafting

Since 2001 we have been running high quality rafting adventures with departures from San Jose, the Arenal Volcano, and the Southern Caribbean Coast to our private Exploration Center in Siquirres, the gateway to the Pacuare and Reventazón rivers where the best rapids in Costa Rica are found. All one day and overnight trips offer you the option to swap destinations with no extra charge.

We are a family bussiness owned and operated by costaricans with 42 staff members comitted to your safety and satisfaction; we have our very own fleet of 8 vehicles, 21 rafts, 3 offices, a private base and our Pacuare Tent Camp. Our mission is to provide you with the best possible value for both your time and your money; our vision is to be the best rafting company in Costa Rica to work with.

We are one of the few Tour Operators in Costa Rica whose guides are ALL certified by the International Rafting Federation, for further information check: http://www.internationalrafting.com


A New York Times journalist wrote:

"I had never before participated in the highly popular sport of white water rafting. I was lucky enough to hook up with Miguel Cabrera, who runs Exploradores Rafting Company out of San Jose, and receive the best first time instruction a rookie like myself could ever hope for. He has twenty-two years experience kayaking and rafting the numerous overflowing rivers of this beautiful little place. I highly recommend a reservation with his crew as a part of a vacation in Costa Rica. His staff was professional, and his confidence and knowledge of the local people, flora and fauna made the rafting trip an education in indigenous culture and wildlife!"

Experience with Exploradores Outdoors

It is rare find in Costa Rica to find a tour company that is genuinely happy to be serving you. The entire Exploradores Outdoors staff and raft guides were bilingual and very professional. They didn't just spit out the must know information, they took the time to get to know the people as well as give out advice and recommendations on what to wear, what river to choose, and other helpful advice.

"The guides at Exploradores Outdoors proved to be both nimble boaters and excellent cooks when they set up two kitchen tables by flipping over some rafts when we docked halfway through the trip for lunch"
