Day 2 ------------- Enter Pacuare River Rafting Adventure (Camp Pacuare River)

Here we will be entering what National Geographic has listed as one of the top 5 rivers on the planet for it's scenery. The famous Pacuare river is in our opinion the best tour Costa Rica has. It has some great rapids and when it is this good why not spend 2 days on it. We will be camping on the river and this is not roughing it by anymeans. You will be surrounded by jungle with the sound of the river but we do the cooking and everything is set up for you and even a bathroom and shower made from bambu. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner)
