The beautiful Pacuare River was once threatened with a dam project.  Thank goodness, it has been left wild and you now have the chance to not only raft along the Pacuare, but also sleep there as well.

     Your adventure begins with pick up in San Jose and a ride through the countryside, passing green farmlands and volcanoes.  A stop for a typical Costa Rican breakfast before you reach the Pacuare, and a safety talk by expert guides, prepares you for a thrilling 1.5 hour rafting experience (Class II-III).  Pass canyons, waterfalls, tall trees and dense vegetation. This is a protected area of rainforest and you will have a chance to see lots of tropical animals and birds. Finally, you spy the Pacuare Lodge around the corner. You will have earned your lunch!
     In the afternoon, go for a waterfall hike or take a optional canopy zipline tour.  DInner is served by candlelight and you'll sleep in a comfortable king bedded bungalow.
     Awake to the sounds of birds and the soothing river.  You will be amazed at the delicious meals served here in the rainforest.  After breakfast, another fabulous day of rafting (Class III-IV), and picnic lunch along the way. Return to San Jose around 6 pm.
     Multi-day trips will include optional activities on days spent at the lodge, including canopy zipline, Cabecar Indian Hike, Horseback Ride, guided hikes, or therapeutic massage.
