My wife and I had an experience of a lifetime rafting down Pacuare River with Exploradores. Our guide Jonathan was extremely safe and ensured we had a ton of fun! Wife does not know how to swim, and felt very safe on this trip. Pickup/Dropoff from San Jose to Puerto Viejo Limon Breakfast and Lunch were delicious and traditional food!... More

We took a river rafting trip yesterday with this company out of San Jose, on the lower Pacuare River. These guys are excellent and impeccably organized! They picked us up at our hotel and took us to their main camp at the put-in site. This is a base camp where several of their buses all arrive, and then they split... More

I went with a friend to the Exploradores Outdoors rafting and we also used the tour to get from San José to La Fortuna. Everything was well organized and worked out perfectly, also the rafting was a lot of fun and it was no problem that we had a boat full of beginners ;) Only drawback was that the driver... More

Two friends and I took this trip from San Jose. It was fantastic! We got breakfast when we arrived to the main camp and got all sorted for the rafting. It was my first time and I felt so safe! It was an adrenaline rush, with some beautiful surroundings to go along. We stopped halfway for lunch and then continued... More

A friend and I recently when on the white water rafting trip with Exploradores on the Pacuare River. The operation was run smoothly from start to finish. Miguel, our tour leader, did a wonderful job of educating us about what to expect, safety guidelines, and general information about the river. There was a great breakfast buffet at the base camp...

My husband, daughter, and I had the greatest opportunity to spend the full day with the Exploradores Outdoors staff in early December - first being picked up in Manzanillo and then experiencing the most fantastic journey through the waterwater rapids for 3 hours and 38 rapids! Our guide Fish was very succinct with his commands and guided our group of... More

This was a wonderful experience for my first time white water rafting. There were other groups that went to a more difficult river, but this was perfect for me. They took time to take us into a small stream to see some of the animals (like sloths) and then back out to the river and the rapids. They provided good... More

We had a great time rafting the PACUARE RIVER. The company picked us up in Manzanillo and from the time they picked us up to the time they dropped us off we had a wonderful time. The views were one of a kind and they guides were amazing.

Super organized, delicious meals, very experienced guides (most important part) with Zack, and an amazingly fun time on the river. Highly recommend to beginners and advanced rafters alike.

From the very initial meeting with Juan and Javier at the office in Puerto Viejo, I was excited to take a white water rafting trip with Exploradores Outdoors. They were friendly and helpful, explained (in very good English) the entire process of their day trip and then went on to advise me about a weekend trip I was planning to... More
