The Pacuare River is world famous for its beauty. A true river gorge, it is flanked by steep, green walls. You will see waterfalls cascade into the river from both sides. Wildlife is abundant: sloth, toucans, parrots, coatis, butterflies and colorful frogs are common sights. Other inhabitants of this jungle: monkeys, jaguars, peccaries and tapirs generally stay more hidden. It is not an overly challenging river, but it has many rapids that will make your adventure very interesting and fun. The 18-mile-one-day-run includes a total of 38 rapids. Few rivers in the world can offer you so many rapids in such a short stretch of water.

Upon arrival at the river, you will get geared up with a life jacket, helmet and paddle and then briefed with a full safety orientation talk by expert guides. The first 4 miles consist of class II-III rapids, a great time to test your new river skills, gain confidence in your team, and have fun.

After about 40 minutes you will enter the Pacuare River Gorge, which is 5 miles long. After the gorge the river opens up to a 5 mile stretch called “Pacuare’s Valley.” The river becomes wide open, giving you the opportunity to rest a bit and watch the varied wildlife. The final 3 miles are filled with class III rapids that will carry you all the way to the end.

Location

Directions:

Samasati is located 130 miles from San Jose’ international airport. It is a very scenic drive that will take about 4 hours. We strongly recommend, if you are driving a rented vehicle, that you leave the city of San Jose not later than 12:00 noon . That way, you will find your way to Samasati during daylight hours and have time to stop, look at the scenery or have a snack.

From the car rental, please get directions to the Guapiles/Limon Highway. It is a road that winds up into the cloudy mountains of Braulio Carrillo’s National Park, before crossing the Santa Clara flatlands all the way to Puerto Limon.
Once you get to Puerto Limon, please follow directions to Cahuita and Puerto Viejo. Samasati is 30 miles South of Puerto Limón, direction Puerto Viejo. It is located in the Hone Creek village(‘s) area. About five miles after passing the Cahuita National Park’s entrance, you’ll see a big sign on the right hand side that says “Samasati Nature Retreat”.

Samasati’s entrance’s gate is about 1/2 mile inland from the main road. Samasati’s restaurant and accommodations are located 1 mile uphill from the entrance(’s) gate. There is a reception(’s) area at the entrance gate. There you will find out how to proceed with your 4×4 vehicle, or where to park your car and wait for a Samasati vehicle if your vehicle is not a 4X4. Samasati’s entrance’s office is open between 8 and 5 PM every day. Please let us know in advance if you are planning to arrive earlier or later.
