We are so happy with our decision to book a 1 day Pacuare trip with Exploradores! It was a great way to travel from San Jose to Puerto Viejo, without having to be stuck on Mepe for 5 hours! We got picked up by a van in San Jose and drove for about an hour and a half before the... More

We had a wonderful day! The rafting was fun. The scenery was gorgeous. The guides were knowledgeable and funny. The price was right and including a transfer is brilliant and cost/time effective. Great day.

Pacuare Rafting Trip was incredible! The Guides were very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I felt like I was in good hands the entire trip. The equipment was all great quality. The river and surounding landscape was breath taking. The breakfast and lunch buffets were delicious and generous. Exploradores Outdoors definitely has the best shuttles around; they are super comfortable and... More

Two-day river rafting trip with Exploradores Outdoors - this was the best thing I did in Costa Rica! The river is beautiful, the guides are fun and knowledgeable and our overnight stay in the Pacuare River Lodge was out of this world. Especial thanks to Roberto, our brilliant rafting guide!

If you want to go river rafting in Costa Rica your only choice should be Exploradores Outdoors! Yes the reviews are all true. We were looking for a way to get to Puerto Viejo from San Jose and our hotel (Costa de Papito) recommends this option on their website. For $99 you get picked up at you hotel, driven to... More

This outfit did a fantastic job with our rafting trip as well as transporting our family of 6 (ranging from 13-22) from an Arenal hotel. We felt that E.O. was professional, organized, concerned about safety and friendly. Our guide/instructor was Roberto and he was great. We felt safe with him guiding our raft (only my husband had ever done white-water... More

Exploradores is a very well swept up and professional company which deserves its excellent reviews on TA. Our guide was brilliant and clearly knew the river and the surrounding area very well. We had a great time and the views offered by this amazing river were second to none. Having been on a few rafting trips in various countries, I... More

we did the two day one night tour of Tortuguero. The first day of this trip was wonderful. Had a informative trip to the boat, then a great day. At night saw a Green Sea Turtle laying eggs, simply amazing! Second day was a total waste of time. Our guide Laura was so intent on her photos was saw very... More

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
