Whitewater Rafting – Pacuare River Two Days/One Night With Zipline Tour

Without doubt, our favorite two days you can spend in Costa Rica.

 

Day 1 will see you enjoy 8 miles of exciting whitewater and participate in riverside stops to hike up to secluded waterfalls. After some great hikes and wonderful rapids, you will arrive at the remote eco-lodge. The Pacuare Eco Lodge is equipped with a full kitchen, showers, bathrooms, fully enclosed cabinas, and the best vantage point of the beautiful river and jungle.  After settling in at the lodge, it’s time to take a short walk to the canopy/zipline course. Fly through the treetop canopy and get a different perspective of the river, rainforest and its environs. For the brave there is also the amazing (and almost, heart-stopping) Tarzan Swing.

 

Day 2 will have you tackling the most challenging section of the Lower Pacuare as class IV drops seem to be around every corner. The spectacular river canyon and virgin rainforest create vertical walls of green, broken by waterfalls and hanging vines. This stretch of the Lower Pacuare River has been voted one of the top 5 commercially rafted rivers in the world by National Geographic and will have you floating past primary rainforest, stunning waterfalls, steep canyons and fun class III and IV rapids.

You will enjoy a delicious typical lunch, cooked up by an older lady over a wood stove, with spectacular views down to the Turrialba valley.  You will also have the chance to see all sorts of wildlife.
