My husband and I did the overnight trip in Jan. We were picked up at our hotel in San Jose and transported in a full van to the Exploradores headquarters for a good breakfast. Then we put overnight essentials in a backpack and stored the rest of our luggage in the storage area. Take a small towel if you want... More

First, If you are up front, stretch your thighs before and after, and sunscreen everything - I'd recommend a massage after. We booked the trip through our hotel in Puerto Viejo - Hotel Banana Azul, with the idea of braving the rapids and getting a ride from San Jose to the coast - WIN-WIN and why not have an adventure...

We did the whitewater rafting trip on the Pacuare River and had a great time! We've been whitewater rafting on the Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and the Pacuare River trip was superior by far! Our guide was Christopher, who was hilarious and super friendly. He gave thorough safety instructions and had us practice before getting on some of... More

When my husband suggested this activity I was a little skeptical it would be fun. I was also slightly concerned about being bounced out of a boat onto jagged rocks!! However our guide George was excellent at explaining the safety information and ensuring we all had maximum fun. Many of the guides seem to be Costa Rican, George was, which... More

I took a trip with my family in early February 2017. None of us had ever rafted before, and we were unsure of what to expect. We did a one day trip of the Pacuare River with Andres as our guide. I can't say enough good things about Andres and the rest of the guides - they made the entire... More

Rafting on the Pacuare River with Exploradores Outdoor was my favorite part of our Costa Rica Trip on the Caribbean Coast. The amazing team will make sure your rafting experience is freaking fun AND safe. Plus, the scenery is SO beautiful. They will pick you up at your hotel and drove you all the way to the Pacuare River. Great... More

We had two tours with Exploradores--Tortuguero and one day rafting on the Pacuare River, both were excellent. For the Tortuguero trip, we had a hike, canal tour, and trip to town with an overnight stay at Rana Roja Lodge. Vivi was our guide and she was excellent, best guide we had in Costa Rica! She was very passionate and knowledgeable... More

Hard to find the words to describe what an awesome trip this was. We did the overnight trip and soo happy we did. The Pacuare Lodge is absolutely stunning. Fernando was an awesome guide. His 8 years of experience we apparent as he glided us through class 3 and 4 rapids with ease and confidence. He and Yonder couldn't have... More

Had a great trip rafting down the River Pacuare, was a little nervous doing this trip as in a previous rafting experience (not with this company) fell out of the raft in a class 5 rapid which is not a pleasant experience. However, these guys, professional, mindful of your level of experience, safety is a priority at all times and... More
