Breakfast at the Hotel
2 hour motor boat to the pier where you board the bus for your return drive to Siquirres. You will be dropped off at a restaurant where the rafting company Rios Tropicales will be waiting to take you to their Operations Center where lunch will be served. You’ll then depart for our private rafting put-in on the Pacuare River in San Martin. There your professional guides will load your gear into dry bags, prepare all the rafting equipment, give you complete safety and paddle instruction.
The first day’s Class III rapids welcome you to the Pacuare gorge’s charm as you raft deep in the heart of primary rainforest. Along its course lie several densely vegetated gorges sheltering many animals, including sloths, river otters, and anteaters, and an incredible variety of birds—toucans, egrets, herons, kingfishers, sunbirds, and trogons.
Before you know it, you’ll arrive at our unique Rios Tropicales Lodge where you can spend the afternoon relaxing, hiking or soaking in our waterfall and pools. Nestled in the jungle on our 2,000-acre private reserve, the Lodge offers you all the comforts you need in “Cabecar Indian” style bungalows.
