Pacuare River: This River rises from the highlands of Talamanca and flows down to the Atlantic Ocean. Considered one of the top rivers for white water rafting in the worldPacuare River offers an unforgettable experience, not only for its rapids, but the exuberant flora and fauna and landscapes you will see during the trip. The rapids on this river are class 3 and 4 so; we suggest it for people with previous experience in white water rafting.
