Overview Itinerary Pricing


This fun and affordable trip features two of Costa Rica's top adventure and scenic highlights: The Pacuare River & the Arenal Volcano.

The Pacuare River is considered one of the premier rafting experiences in the tropical world. You will explore the intimate nature of the rainforest from the unique perspective of a raft. The warm water, cascading waterfalls, and lush rainforest with its brilliantly colored plants, animals, and birds make the rafting a treat for your senses. Add in the exciting Class III-IV whitewater rapids and this tropical adventure will be packed with experiences that will last long after you've returned home. After your jungle river adventure, you'll move onwards to Costa Rica's most iconic adventure destination, Arenal Volcano.
