Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • When you arrive in San Jose you will be met and driven to your hotel in the capital city. Depending on the time of your flight there may be time for exploration.

  • The adventure really starts today as you are collected from your hotel and driven east out of the city to the Pacuare River. Here you will change into wet weather gear and your guides will brief you ahead of the rafting trip that will take you over white water and through gorges to the jungle lodge.

  • While you are staying at Pacuare Lodge there will be a range of activities on offer so you can be as active (or not) as you want. For the more culturally minded you can also visit the local Cabecar Indians.

  • Leaving the lodge you will board the rafts again and head off down stream through class III and class IV rapids, stopping for lunch and visits to waterfalls on the way. At the end of the rafting you will be met and driven across the country to your hotel near the Arenal Volcano.
