River Rafting on Pucuare River, Costa Rica

River Rafting on Pucuare River, Costa Rica

Pacuare River One Day - a Carbon-Neutral, Environmentally-Friendly Adventure Trip length: 18 miles, 10-13 hours Difficulty: Class III-IV, moderate-difficult Minimum age: 12 years old Season: All year round Included: Transportation, breakfast, picnic lunch, river equipment, guide, changing facilities at our take out in Siquirres. One towel is provided for each guest. Price per person: US$100 The trip down this wild and scenic river offers some of the finest white water rafting in Latin America and takes you past luxuriant rainforest, crystalline waterfalls and dense vegetation covering the sides of steep gorges. It is also an environmentally sustainable adventure that is carbon neutral and supports efforts to conserve the river’s ecosystems and help nearby communities. This unforgettable river adventure combines class-II and -IV rapids with floats past breathtaking scenery that includes massive tropical trees and waterfalls that plummet into the river. We'll break for a healthy lunch by the riverbank in a traditional palm-thatch structure owned by a Cabécar Indian family, who recycle our organic waste and wash dishes so that we don’t have to use disposable plates and cups. After lunch, well paddle through more adrenaline-pumping rapids and marvel at amazing scenery, such as the narrow canyon of Dos Montañas. After we reach the highway, you’ll be able to change into dry clothes before we begin our 90-minute drive back to San José. You’ll also have a chance to purchase carbon-offset certificates, which finance the planting and care of native trees on deforested land that will absorb tons of atmospheric carbon as they grow, and can offset all the carbon that enters the atmosphere during your Costa Rica vacation. Rafters should be physically fit and at least 12 years old, but no previous white-water experience is necessary for this trip.  If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
