Spend the Night at the Lodge and Raft Out

Pacuare River Rafting is the undisputed crown jewel of all the Costa Rican Rivers. National Geographic called the Pacuare one of the top three rafting rivers in the world. The Pacuare River Gorge is home to thousands of exotic creatures such as sloth, monkeys, toucans, and the elusive jaguar. This lush paradise is accentuated by literally dozens of spectacular waterfalls crashing down hundreds of feet into the blue-green waters of the Pacuare. The Pacuare is invariably the highlight of our client’s vacation in Costa Rica.
