2 Days / 1 Night
Two days of rafting on the Pacuare River with an overnight stay at the Luxury Pacuare Lodge. The Pacuare Protected Zone and Pacuare River are located between the coastal lowlands and the country’s highest mountain range and constitute one of the isthmus most important protected areas. This area is still inhabited by the Cabecar Indians, whose hut wellings are spaced far apart over large distances, rather than being clustered, as was true of most native tribes. Located strategically inside this zone of protected wilderness is our very special jungle getaway, the Pacuare Lodge, accesible to travelers through our multiday white-water rafting tours on the Pacuare River. Considered by many experienced rafters to be one of the most scenic rivers in the world, the Pacuare offers an adventurous ride filled with stunning natural beauty and exciting rapids.

Full Board Pension

On the first day of our journey into the Pacuare Rainforest, we will pass through our anxious capital Cartago towards Turrialba. We will be stopping for an authentic Costa Rican breakfast before reaching our site of embarkation. Then, once in the water, you will experience the exhilaration of riding the waves on this magnificent river, which courses through a tropical wilderness of dense vegetation and steep gorges that rise majestically above its banks. When we arrive at our overnight destination, you will find the
Pacuare Lodge. After a hearty lunch, try the Pacuare Canopy Adventure into the forest trees, take a guided hike into the rainforest mountains, or just relax. Happy Hour truly becomes a happy time as you share your experiences of the day with other rafters.
Later, a candlelight dinner with wine is served to you by our guides, who are trained by a French chef. When you feel tired, you will retire to your very own rustic bungalow, complete with private bathroom, comfortable beds, and clean linen.
Day 2 Pacuare River – Return to San Jose :
In the morning, after a hot breakfast, you will have some time on your own to explore the rainforest surrounding the lodge. Then we launch the rafts again for our trip. Rafting becomes even more exciting today as you begin to use the skills and experience gained the day before. Your guides will stop the rafts along the journey and lead you up paths and side streams that open onto pristine waterfalls and natural water slides. Lunch will be served along the river, and when we reach our final destination.We will board the comfortable microbus for our return to San Jose, sharing experiences with each other as this memorable trip draws to a close.
