Day 3 — Whitewater Rafting through Pacuare Canyon and Travel to the Caribbean Coast. Today we will be rafting the world-famous Pacuare Canyon. We save the best for last, and the scenery here is like no place else in Costa Rica. The canyon walls rise 300ft up in straight rock and 200ft waterfalls fall into the river as we float down a completely virgin tropical rainforest from start to finish. Then we will start our drive to the south Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica, where the jungle meets the sea! This is a unique area of Costa Rica, still very rich in culture and with no high rises like you might find on the Pacific.

Lodging: Lanna Ban Hotel

Day 4 — Indigenous Community Visit. After a delicious breakfast, we will start the drive to visit a BriBri Indigenous Territory, located in the heart of the tropical rainforest in the Talamanca mountains. Where you will learn and experience BriBri culture, we will be transported along the Yorkín River in an indigenous canoe, so get ready for the adventure.

Glide across the turquoise waters on a stand-up paddleboard from Puerto Viejo to Punta Uva, weaving through mangroves and spotting sea turtles in hidden coves.
