What you can expect

Set out for a whitewater adventure as you ride the river's surges, swells and swirling waters through Costa Rica's stunning natural scenery. Put in on either the churning Pacuare or the calmer Chirripo, and enjoy lunch as you float through the tropical landscape.

After being picked up in San Jose, leave the city behind and head out into Costa Rica's world-famous wilderness. As you snack on a light breakfast, your knowledgeable local guide gives you information on the area and tips for your rafting excursion.

More experienced rafters will love the white-knuckled rush of rafting down the Pacuare River's adrenaline-pumping Class III and Class IV rapids. Hang on tight as this exciting ride whisks you by the verdant tropical flora on the riverbanks.

For rafters who are more sightseers than thrill seekers, the calm waters of the Chirripo beckon. Float leisurely through the rainforest and take in the sights and sounds of the river, paddling through a few gentle whitewater swells along the way.

As you cruise down tranquil stretches of these Costa Rican waterways, enjoy a picnic lunch and commentary and tips from your guide before your ride concludes and you return to San Jose.
