1. From San José: Pacuare River White Water Rafting Day Trip
Raft along the Pacuare River on a guided excursion from San José and feel the thrill of floating past cascading waterfalls. Experience class 3 and 4 rapids, perfect for beginners and experienced paddlers alike. Enjoy a roundtrip transfer from your hotel and discover the world of whitewater rafting. After an early pick-up at your San Jose area hotel, we will drive to Cartago – Costa Rica’s historic capital city – and through small towns and countryside to the rafting hub of Turrialba. We’ll stop for breakfast (included) and afterward head to the Pacuare River put-in. At the river, your guides will outfit you with rafting equipment and give a paddling explanation and safety talk. Then the fun begins! We’ll paddle 18 miles downriver through class 3 and 4 rapids like “Huacas,” “Rodeo,” “Pinball,” “Cimarrones,” and “Dos Montañas.” Along the way, we’ll stop for a riverside picnic lunch. After finishing rafting, you’ll be able to change into dry clothes before driving back to San Jose. Our Pacuare River Rafting 1 Day tour includes breakfast, picnic lunch, 5 hours of rafting, professional river guides and a safety kayaker, rafting equipment, and transportation from and to your San Jose area hotel.
