Why is the Pacuare River of Costa Rica the crown jewel of whitewater?
On the way in, the way out and the way downstream there is no shortage of scenery. Toucans squawking in the trees, hawks, sloths, iguanas hanging out in the branches, lush green flora…the list goes on….
Accessibility- good put-in and take-out. Of course, the 17 miles in between have literally no access. And it is real whitewater kayaking – where no USGS gauge is going to tell you whether the level is good or not.
Amazing Class III-IV whitewater. Imagine 17 miles of incredible whitewater. No worry about having to paddle a bunch of flatwater–there isn’t any!!
Pura Vida in Costa Rica!
