We just did the one day rafting on the pacuare river. What a fantastic way journey! The river pacuare offers some of the most beautiful sceneries of the Costa Rican nature. The river itself is nothing but relaxing; rapids class 2, 3 and 4. However, everything was beautifully handled by our fantastic and hilarious instructor Manuel. I swear it was... More

Definitely a highlight and a great way to kick off our CR vacation. We had read about Pacuare river as being one of the top places for rafting and didn't disappoint. We chose E.O. based on good reviews and that's the one CR travel agent pre-booked! We got very lucky as during two weeks prior to our rafting date there... More

Pacuare is great - you have to do it :). Exploradores were organised, friendly & professional. Other companies do Pacuare too, but these guys seem better set-up to look after (& especially transport) non-locals. We had 60 of us out in 10 rafts today, all different nationalities & skill-levels. Saw 3 other companies on the 4 hours we were on... More

Went on this rafting trip with a few friends and was the highlight of my trip! Andreas was an awesome guide, had so much fun navigating the rapids and the river is amazing. Floating down the river in a calm area with the rainforest completely covering both sides is something I won't soon forget!

We were so dissapointed with the the lies that Exploradores told us the day we were supposed to go on the Pacuare River. We were picked up at our hotel and told there was no problem with water level of the river we were supposed to raft. " There are markers for the river and it was at 5 and... More

My wife had rafted this river before and said it was a "must do" during our trip to Costa Rica this summer. And she was so right! It was probably our favorite day of the whole trip! Exploredores Outdoors took care of everything (breakfast, lunch, private bus from and back to San Jose, Arenal or the Caribbean coast, showers, et... More

We booked a three day trip with Exploradores and were generally impressed. The guides are enthusiastic and professional and the transfers and organisation all pretty good. We started with the overnight trip to Tortuguero - it was an amazing place to see but the trip wasn't very full of activities, and the food in the hotel we stayed in was... More

We booked Exploradores Outdoors through our hotel in San Jose. They picked us up right at our hotel, and drove us the whole two hour trip into San Pedro for breakfast. We originally were going to do a class 3/4 river, but there was a sudden downpour in the area. Because of this, they had to cancel the river we... More

With this team we had two activities. We started with the rafting on the Rio Pacuare. It was an amazing experience, as we ride down a natural park the whole day. At noon the meal was also enjoyable with everyone in the middle of nowhere. We also could swim a little in the fresh water. Then we went to Tortuguero... More

We did the two day Tortuguero and one day rafting trip. We had an amazing time! We were the only two people for the Tortuguero trip so it was basically a private tour with our amazing tour guide Laura! She stopped many times on the way to the Port to show us animal and the banana factory. While in Tortugero... More
