Costa Rica 5-Day Rafting Trips & Itineraries
One of the most exciting activities in Costa Rica is river rafting. You don’t need two weeks for a white-water excursion, either; you can plan a comprehensive rafting adventure over just five adrenaline-pumping days, braving the class II and III rapids of the Río Pacuare, which is one of the most famous rivers in the world. Or you could plan a combined adventure that includes whitewater rafting on the Pacuare with overnight stays in a rainforest jungle lodge followed by a surfing excursion to the village of Puerto Viejo, on the Caribbean Coast.
