Turrialba, Costa Rica
NileGuide Expert tip:
Get picked up in one part of the country and dropped off in another; every trip includes transport to and from your hotel in either San Jose, the Caribbean, or Arenal Volcano.
Whitewater rafting on the Rio Pacuare is right up there with the canopy tour for adventure seekers in Costa Rica- both are not-to-be missed things-to-do while in the country on vacation. The experience offered by Exploradores is an 18 mile stretch that includes 52 rapids, suitable for levels III and IV. The rapids on the Rio Pacuare are not extremely difficult, yet the energy is always high and this is most definitely an adrenaline-filled experience. See lots of wildlife and a multitude of species of flora and fauna as the river rushes through the jungle, rainforest and cascading waterfalls. Meet like-minded folks and share the joy of floating, bouncing, and soaring the river Racuare, which tends to be rushing but not overpowering, depending on the recent rainfall. Exploradores also boasts its own private Exploration center where you can relax in the tropical gardens, shower and change, grab a bite at the cafe, and browse the gift shop. Breakfast, lunch and transportation are included.
