White Water Rafting Rio Pacuare, Hike Arenal Volcano.

After breakfast we head to the Pacuare River for a wonderful class III-IV White Water Rafting trip. After a brief introduction to paddling, we launch our rafts down the Pacuare mighty River to begin our adventure. We traverse eight miles of remote and scenic waters that course through a wilderness of dense vegetation that completely covers the riverbank.

Lunch will be at the middle of the river and we return to our hotel in La Fortuna in the afternoon.

Day 6:

Biking or horseback riding Tour, and Pacific Ocean.

After breakfast we will head to our wonderful biking tour (or horseback riding tour at La Fortuna). The tour lasts about 4 hours. Then we will transfer from the Arenal area, at the base of the Tilaran mountain range to Manuel Antonio, on the Pacific Ocean. The climate in this area of Costa Rica is very warm and usually humid. This is a tropical transition forest between the dry lowland forest of the north and the wet rainforest of the south and therefore rich in bio diversity. Due to hot climate, clients are recommended to wear shorts and a t-shirt and to bring a change of clothing. There are restroom facilities but no restaurant here. We recommend you bring insect repellant, water and a camera.

 

After the tour we will stop for lunch at a local restaurant. We reach Manuel Antonio in the afternoon.
