Whitewater Rafting tour San Jose

Best one-day Whitewater Rafting tour in San Jose!

This rafting tour from San Jose gives you the ultimate blend of wilderness exposure and excitement. Rio Pacuare is world famous for its pristine beauty. Being a true White Water Rafting river gorge it is flanked by steep green walls. Waterfalls and cascades fall into the river from both sides as colorful, tropical birds fly over your head. The wildlife is abundant, with sloths, toucans, parrots, coatis, butterflies, and colorful frogs being common sights. The white water is equally exciting; the number of rapids covered on this outstanding descent makes it a most memorable river trip.

On our way down, we will stop to enjoy a buffet-style lunch at the most beautiful beach at the river. We finish in Siquirres at our own private Exploration Center, where you can take a shower, change, have a cold beverage, enjoy pictures of your trip, and reflect with your new friends about the great adventure you just shared.
