The Pacuare River Rafting Tour(Class III-IV) starts early in the morning, when your transportation and guides pick you up to take you to the Caribbean area.

A delicious breakfast awaits you at the Ríos Tropicales Operations Center. After breakfast, you’ll have time to change and prepare for this exciting adventure.

You will go back to the transport that will take you to the put-in on the banks of the Pacuare, where the rafts and all the equipment will be waiting to take you downstream.

After a safety and instructions briefing, the group will be distributed by rafts, and you will begin the trip.

The raft will take you paddling for the next 18 kilometers through the lush landscape of primary forest. Waterfalls falling over the river and quiet ponds where you can swim to your liking are just part of this fantastic excursion.

Because the real adventure is in the impressive rapids that carry names like Huacas, Cimarrón, and Dos Ríos.

Stay alert to the instructions of your guides, enjoy rowing, and the thrilling sensation of adventure, but do not miss the beautiful landscapes on the banks of the river.

After a couple of hours on the Pacuare, you will arrive on the raft to the shore where the bus will take you back to the Ríos Tropicales Operations Center to enjoy a shower, put on dry clothes and have a delicious hot lunch.
