Whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River is our #1 recommendation for what to do in Costa Rica. This world famous River features exquisite tropical scenery and wildlife, 35 exciting class 3 and 4 rapids, warm water and easy access. This is our most popular trip! National Geographic Magazine calls this river one of the five most scenic raft trips in the world!
Moreover, the Pacuare flows right between Puerto Viejo, San Jose, and La Fortuna, so, logistically, it is the perfect activity for when you are traveling between two of those areas.
Instead of having a day of travel, you can enjoy a day of discovery and adventure, possibly your best day in Costa Rica, and end up where you want to go. What could be better!? Or you can start and finish in the same area.
