San Jose - Pacuare River
On the first day of our journey into the Pacuare Rainforest, we'll pass through our anxious capital Cartago towards Turrialba. We will be stopping for an authentic Costa Rican breakfast before reaching our site of embarkation. Then, once in the water, you'll experience the exhilaration of riding the waves on this magnificent river. We arrive at our overnight destination, the Pacuare Lodge. After a hearty lunch, try the Pacuare Canopy Adventure into the forest trees, take a guided hike into the rainforest mountains, or just relax (Tours not included in the 2D/1N package). Happy Hour truly becomes a happy time as you share your experiences of the day with other rafters. Later, a candlelight dinner with wine is served to you by our guides, who are trained by a French chef. When you feel tired, you'll retire to your very own rustic bungalow, complete with private bathroom, comfortable beds, and clean linen.
In the morning, after a hot breakfast, you'll have some time on your own to explore the rainforest surrounding the lodge. Then we launch the rafts again for Day 2 of our trip. Rafting becomes even more exciting today as you begin to use the skills and experience gained the day before. Your guides will stop the rafts along the journey and lead you up paths and side streams that open onto pristine waterfalls and natural water slides. Lunch will be served along the river, and when we reach our final destination, we'll board the comfortable microbus for our return to San José, sharing experiences with each other as this memorable trip draws to a close.
