Riding the Rapids in Río Pacuare

Just a short one-and-a-half hour bus ride away from Heredia is Costa Rica’s best rafting adventure at the Pacuare River in Turrialba.

This is a popular place to get your adrenaline pumping on its III and IV class rapids with experienced guides and a delicious lunch included! Not only were the rapids a thrill to ride, but we also stopped a handful of times to take a dip in a natural pool with a rushing waterfall and to jump off of two diving rocks.

The river is also the perfect nature setting to take pictures and bask in the peaceful ambiance. Along the way you will have the chance to see many species of butterflies, waterfalls, canyons, and jungle- everything green! I highly recommend Excitement Costa Rica as a top-rated company with whom to experience your white-water rafting adventure. They were very professional and ensured that we enjoyed every moment! Don’t forget to smile for the camera as you are rolling through the rapids. They have professional cameramen to capture every exciting run of the river!
