San Jose, central highlands and central valleys: Go white-water rafting on the Pacuare river

Visit Us

Go white-water rafting on the Pacuare river

Well-known for its white-water rapids, the Pacuare river cuts a swathe through stunning natural landscapes. High canyon walls dripping with lush vegetation surmount the river bank and provide a spectacular backdrop to your rafting adventure, as well as a habitat for native wildlife.

There are rapids suitable for beginners and experienced rafters alike, while calm waters between the tempestuous stretches allow you to sit back and drink in the surroundings. You'll pass waterfalls cascading into the river from the steep rock faces above and spot vibrantly coloured birds flying overhead, before that familiar rushing sound alerts you to the next rapid on the horizon and you ready yourself for more adventure.
