I went with friends for a 3 day 2 night stay. Rafting was our first part of our holiday as soon as we arrived in Costa Rica.Pick up from our hotel in San Jose was straight forward. We had lunch at the operation centre. Food was delicious and tasty compared to what we experienced afterwards else where in Costa Rica. This booking was made via agents in UK. We didn't know what to expect and pack but we had a really amazing time. We had Johnny as our raft guide to the lodge. Ronald looked after us the next day and we went on a waterfall hike. For the final leg of the river, we had Luis as a raft guide.
All the guides are friendly, look after you and make sure you are enjoying the experience and the food that they have to cook themselves!
I would definately recommend this company. Just make sure if you don't have hot water - ask any other staff and not Johnny to get it fixed. He's such a joker!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our multi-day trips treat you to an exceptional adventure vacation experience combining rafting on the Pacuare with a stay at our remote "Eco-Lodge", tucked in the rainforest on the banks of the river. A trip of pure magic, unsurpassed beauty, wildlife and ravishing rapids; Pacuare is the quintessential tropical river. Along its course lay several densely vegetated gorges, which shelter, jaguars, ocelots, monkeys, sloths and an incredible variety of birds. Also found within these gorges, is some of the best whitewater in the world. "at its lodge, hammock-filled, thatch-roofed huts, offering dorm and honeymoon style rooms, surround an even larger thatch-roofed lodge net to a gurgling waterfall linking the huts to the lodge’s open-walled dining room, bar and reading room are bamboo-railed boardwalks that make wearing anything but river sandals sacrilegious. Don’t get so comfortable in the reading room’s hammock; however, that you miss the cocktail-hour bell; in true jungle fashion, all apres-paddle drinks are served in coconut shells."
