Rio Reventazon: Pascua Section
The Reventazon River rages through a mystical gorge steeped in natural beauty and railroad history. It is a great way to see the jungles of Costa Rica and another great way to get between Puerto Viejo and San Jose. The Pascua section is for those who want big water, class 4+ action. This is World Class Whitewater, with over 30 rapids to challenge the fit rafter. Passengers should have prior rafting experience and reasonable fitness. Minimum age is 15 years.
The Reventazon River flows parallel and close to the Pacuare River, right between San Jose and Puerto Viejo, so like the Pacuare trips, we can pick you up in one city and drop you off in the other, by far the best way to travel!
