Pacuare 2 Day Trip
Our overnight Pacuare Adventure is a Paddle and Hike expedition. Not only will we raft a variety of exciting rapids, but we will also hike to pristine waterfalls, fun swimming holes and primary jungles. This package includes at least one hike a day, based on your athletic and adventure desires.
The first day we will run 13kms (8 miles) of continuous class III whitewater for a total of 14 rapids. Then we will arrive at River Lodge shortly past noon, on time for lunch. Afternoon activities include various optional hikes, fishing in the river, or relaxing in a hammock.
The second day begins with a hot, freshly brewed cup of Costa Rica’s famous coffee. After a hearty breakfast is served and we pack our gear, our river descent continues.
All of the class IV rapids are on this day, so now it is time to truly test the skills you learned on the previous day. The second day is significantly longer on the river, with 23kms (14 miles) to travel and about 30 rapids. Two stops are made, one for a nice exploratory hike and another one to have lunch on the river.
We finish in Siquirres, at our own private center, where you can take a shower, change and enjoy the gardens and terrace while having a beer or two and reflecting with your new friends about the great adventure you just shared.
