San Jose / Pacuare River Rafting
After an early morning pickup from your hotel in San Jose, you’ll fuel up with a typical Costa Rican breakfast at Rancho del Sapito, a family-run restaurant with views of Turrialba Volcano. Once at the put-in on the Pacuare, a rafting orientation, paddle instruction, and safety talk with your river guides set you up for a day of unbelievable fun. Halfway through the journey, enjoy a picnic lunch on the riverbank. Total river time is about five hours, depending on the water level. At the take-out you are met by your private van for the transfer back to your hotel in San Jose (about 1 hour and 45 minutes), arriving around 5:00 pm. A complimentary photo CD of the day’s rafting journey is provided.
Note: You will be joining a group of other people, six per raft. Life jackets, helmets, and other safety equipment are provided. Children must be 12 years or older for Pacuare River rafting. The Pejibaye River, with gentler Class II-III rapids, can be booked for groups with children under 12.
