The Pacuare River is one of the best choices for your adventure treks in Costa Rica. Wildlife is abundant, with sloth, toucans, parrots, coatis, morpho butterflies and colorful frogs being common sights. The white water that is equally exciting. The 18 mile one day run includes a total of 52 rapids. Few rivers in the world can offer you so many. The first 4 miles consist of fun class II-III rapids which is a perfect time to test your new river skills and gain confidence in your team. After about 40 minutes we will enter the famous Pacuare River Gorge, which is 5 miles of some of the best white water Costa Rica has to offer. The rapids here are “Terciopelo snake”, “Double drop”, “Pin ball” to name a few. After the gorge the rivers opens up to a 5 mile stretch on the Valle del Pacuare, where the river has a different character. It is wide open, which gives you the opportunity to rest a bit and take the opportunity to do some wildlife spotting.
