Day 1 – Arrive & Transfer to Turrialba

Casa Turire – Turrialba

Today you’ll arrive at Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose where your friendly Green Frog Adventures Guide will be waiting to transport you to your first exotic destination.

Day 2 – Three-Day Pacuare River Rafting

Wake early for a two-day white water rafting adventure on the Rio Pacuare. We will travel form Turrialba to Tres Equis where we descend through dense jungle into the heart of the Rio Pacuare gorge. This is a special river running through some of the last remaining virgin rain forest in Central America. National Geographic called the Pacuare one of the top three commercial rafting runs in the world. Between the class III + IV rapids, enjoy side hikes to beautiful waterfalls and look for sloths, monkeys, and toucans in the jungle around you. Half way down the river we’ll pull over at the famous Pacuare River Lodge, our stunning riverside abode for the evening. Sip on a tropical drink or explore the surrounding wilderness while your guides prepare a delicious jungle meal in the fully equipped open-air kitchen.

This is one of the most biodiverse and pristine areas in the world and you’re sure to encounter more amazing wildlife than you ever thought possible! Our final destination is a small Cabecar Village. The Cabecar are the original indigenous inhabitants of the Pacuare Valley and they still live in much the same way as their pre-Columbian forefathers. Today will truly be a day you’ll never forget…

Next, I hope you’re not afraid of heights because after lunch it’s up into the trees for a thrilling canopy tour. We’ll head deep into the rainforest on the slopes of the volcano to the start of the tour and from there you’ll see amazing creatures that spend their entire lives in the canopy as you dangle hundreds of feet above the forest floor. But remember, what goes up must come down! We’ll zoom using a series of 13 zip lines!! Oh, and don’t forget the “Tarzan Swing” at the end…

Day 6 – Canyoning

Canyoning is a relatively new adventure sport in Costa Rica and has origins in the rugged canyons of the Austrian Alps. We’ll start high up on the slopes of the volcano and once we reach the top of our canyon, we’ll put on our dry gear and start hiking down one of the many cascading creeks. In no time at all, we’ll come to our first waterfall, a beautiful 100 footer! The only way down is to repel. Your guides will rig the ropes, give you a good demonstration, then, it’s into the abyss for you! You’ll descend through the ruggedly beautiful canyon, repelling down one waterfall after another to the vehicles waiting below. After your wild decent, we’ll whisk you back to your hotel to get cleaned up for yet another delicious dinner in the shadow of the volcano!
