Destination Details

Central Valley, Costa Rica

The Pacuare River, or the Río Pacuare, in Costa Rica has its source in the Cordillera de Talamanca and flows approximately 108 km to the Caribbean. It is a popular location for white water rafting, whitewater kayaking and riverboarding. 

The Pacuare, Costa Rica's most scenic and most accessible river, spans some of the country's most diverse terrain, passing through densely vegetated primary rain forest, lowland tropical forest and towering waterfalls. Jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths and hundreds of species of birds make this tropical environment their home.

With rapids ranging all the way up to class V, the Pacuare is easilly Costa Rica's premier white water rafting river. National Geographic called it one of the world's top 10 river trips in the world, not just due to its challenging rapids, but also because of the stunning scenery that lines its shores. This river is intended for experienced and adventurous rafters. Multiple day trips are available to combine the exhilarating rafting adventures with exploration of waterfalls, hiking trails and natural springs along the way.
