Nowhere in the country can you experience so perfect a blend of thrilling adventure and unspoiled wilderness in a single action-packed day as on a Whitewater Rafting Adventure on the Pacuare River. Experience total isolation from urban life in this exotic and untouched natural world, where sloths, toucans, parrots, coatis, magnificent blue Morpho butterflies and brightly colored frogs are common sights. Unique views of this virgin tropical rainforest area delight and amaze as you navigate the rapids and maneuver the twists and turns of the river. Halfway through our journey, we will stop to enjoy a delicious river-side lunch, and finish up the trip at Siquirres, at our own private Exploration Center, where you can take a shower, change and enjoy the gardens and terrace.
Before we begin, we will gear you up with a life jacket, helmet and paddle, followed by a full safety briefing for this guided, moderately challenging whitewater rafting adventure.
