An Example of a Costa Rica Rafting Vacation
As a warmup, you’ll run the Pejivalle River the same day you arrive in Costa Rica. A steep, beautiful river made of all bends and drops, the Pejivalle is non-stop from the put-in at Taus until the take-out near Ouray!
Days 2 – 3:
The second and third day are two of the most special days you’ll have on your trip. It’s off to the Pacuare River where you’ll be spending the night in a jungle lodge! In addition to the fact you’ll be sleeping in the heart of Costa Rica’s riverland, the Pacuare is the biggest river you’ll run on your Costa Rica rafting vacation! Class II and III rapids every few hundred yards seperate the big class IV drops like Huacus, Cimarrones, Dos Montanas, and Indio!
The river lodge is about two-thirds of the way down. You’ll run the majority of the river on day two.
The Sarapiqui River is the third river on the Costa Rica Rafting Vacation. Located on the Caribbean side of the country, the Sarapiqui is north of the Pacuare and east of the Rio Toro — the next river you’ll be running. Will double-drop bends that double back on themselves, the Sarapaqui is a fun run through Costa Rica’s lowlands.
In Arenal — an exceptional town completely dedicated to tourism, — you’ll run the Rio Toro. Afterward, you can go ziplining down a volcano, horseback riding or four wheeling, or spelunking! But, the Toro will likely be your La Fortunal/Arenal highlight! It’s a fast, exciting river with fun around ever corner!
Then it’s off to Quepos!
Days 6 – 7:
The next two days you’ll run the steepest, wildest rivers on the trip! The Naranjo and Savegre are sister rivers of the Pejivalle and Pacuare. They’re amazing! The drops on the Naranjo and Savegre are big! In addition to running rivers, you’ll enjoy the beaches and surf around Quepos. You can walk through the jungle of Manuel Antonio National Forest as well.
There as many activities in Quepos as there are anywhere else in the country! You can even skydive over Quepos!
Depending on what time you r flight leaves, there may be time for one last stop before heading back to the airport. However, it’s a long drive from Manzanillo to Alajuela, so you’ll likely not have time to do a great deal on your last day.
