One essential stop for your Costa Rica vacation is the Pacuare River, or Río Pacuare. This 108-kilometer river has been called by National Geographic as one of the five most beautiful rivers in the world and is a popular site for white-water rafting, kayaking and riverboarding.
The entire river is surrounded by deep rainforests which provide a breathtaking view while on the river. Although the river mainly flows in remote locations along the western half of Costa Rica, the river is currently becoming sought after as an ideal camping spot in addition to adventure water sports.
The river is a hot destination, for tourists and Costa Ricans alike. For rafting, the river is divided into three main sections based on the class of the rapids. The Upper Upper Section, which contains class II and III rapids, is 26 kilometers long, while the Upper Section, which contains the most technical rapids of class IV and V, begins at Finca La Cruz.
The final part, called the Lower Section, contains the parts of the river for which the Pacure is the most well-known. Full of class III and IV rapids and dropping almost 1,200 feet, this section ends in the small town of Siquirres. This section is famous for the rapids named the Upper and Lower Huacas, the Double Drop, and Cimarones.
Adventure packages to Costa Rica offer one or two-day tours of the river as part of an overall trip, so there’s no excuse to miss out. Most of the river corridor is untouched rain forest, as can be found in only a few places in the world. This adventure trip is the best option for nature and adventure lovers alike.
