I took the one day trip to the Pacuare River with Aventuras Naturales, and it was the best decision I made in my trip to Costa Rica. There were four of us, and they accommodated us in one raft alongside the guide. Our guide in the raft, Juan Carlos, was awesome with us. He let us swim in a couple... More

We had an INCREDIBLE time on our day and a half trip down the Pacaure River with Aventuras Naturales. Our guide, Ivan, was fun and safety-conscious. He showed us the ropes before leading us down the river, being sure to stop at pools so we could swim and to point out all of the local plants and animals. Our meals... More

Our 2 day white water rafting trip by Aventuras Naturales down the Pacuare River was by far the best part of our 9 day trip around Costa Rica!! First let me say that I have rafted before many times on the Ottawa River in Canada and they have class 3-4-5 rapids. The Pacuare is a technical river working the guides... More

The river is in the middle of a rainforest and simply breathtaking and you have an opportunity to take it in between white... More

It was white water rafting, but everything went so smoothly. As if we spent the day wafting along the river. From our San Jose apartotel AN picked us @ 7am in a small bus. We picked up 3 other small groups before heading south towards the Pacaure river. We stopped around 9am for breakfast @ a mountain restaurant overlooking a... More

Aventuras Naturales was a great choice for our rafting trip. This is our 4th white-water experience and was definitely our best. Beautiful drive from our San Jose hotel to a restaurant with an excellent Costa Rican breakfast and an amazing view. Our guide, Pepe, gave us lessons at water's edge before the river got rough. Pepe was so knowledgeable on... More

Our guide Pepe was awesome! They picked us up at our hotel, Quality Hotel in San Jose, at about 5:45 am, and got us back to the hotel at about 6:00 that night. The bus ride was about 3 hours, with a stop for breakfast at a really cool mountainside restaurant, and a short sight-seeing stop at a really pretty... More

We had an absolute blast. Our guide Pepe was awesome. The river was challenging and fun. It was pure adrenaline rush and perfect for our 2nd day in Costa Rica. The scenary is amazing. It's still pure and we hope it stays that way. The food was prepared by the Pacuare Lodge and it was delicious. I highly recommend Aventuras... More
