Rafting the Mighty Pacuare River
The other day I got the chance to go whitewater rafting with Costa Sol Rafting, which offers rafting tours on two different rivers in Costa Rica. I had heard that Pacuare River, which we would raft that day, is one of the best rivers for rafting in Costa Rica, so I sure was excited for the trip.
After a hearty breakfast of gallo pinto and eggs, we made our way to Tres Equis, Turrialba, where we met our river guide, Luis, and got all the equipment for the tour. We were also told that we were lucky, because it had been raining the nights before which meant that the river was the perfect height for an exciting but still safe ride. After the usual safety instructions and a small try out on land, we jumped in the boat and went off to face 18 miles and around 50 rapids, which we would raft that day.
