Day 3 — Raft Pacuare River to POC Lodge (Pacuare Outdoor Center Lodge):
Today is a full day of adventure and fun and we will start by having breakfast at the hotel and packing our bags as we will be moving hotels today. Our final destination of the day will be the Pacuare Outdoor Center, home to the best views on the river of what National Geographic has as one of its top 5 most scenics on the planet.
First, before we get to the lodge, we will experience a canyoneering adventure where you will make your way down a canyon with five different waterfalls. These waterfalls range in height from 20 to 100ft high.
After canyoneering, we will stop at one of our favorite restaurants with a view like none other and a chance to refuel before our day of rafting begins.
Once the food has settled, we will drive for 20 minutes to the infamous Pacuare River, where we will then raft 2 hours to arrive at the Pacuare Outdoor Center Lodge located in one of the most remote sections of the Pacuare River.
Once we arrive, we will take a 10-minute hike over two hanging bridges to the lodge, where you will be ready to relax with the view and the sounds of the jungle after a full day of adventure.

We have a lower platform for those interested in We’ll adventurous swing. We’ll also be riding on our zipline, so we are going to experience the Pacuare River from another level.
Then we are going to hike to a beautiful waterfall where we are going to have the chance to slide in and have some fun! This is about a one-hour hike and will have its vertical challenges hiking down into the canyon. During the night we are going to get relaxed around a bonfire.

The day will start by rafting through the tropical rainforest and one of the most scenic areas of Costa Rica. We will pass by canyon walls that rise 300ft and pristine 200ft waterfalls that fall into the river. This is what we consider the most scenic area of Costa Rica and thousands of former guests share the same opinion.
Then we are going to start our drive to the south Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, where the jungle meets the sea! This unique area of Costa Rica is still very much rich in culture and has no high rises like you might find on the pacific. Also, the time of year during the end of October makes it one of the most pristine areas you will find in Costa Rica. (Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
Day 6 — SUP time (Local Hotel):
During the morning, visit the famous Punta Uva Beach voted globally as one of the most beautiful on the planet. Here we will have the SUP’s ready.

Here there is an Afro-Caribbean influence and you will have the chance to visit shops, get a drink, or just enjoy the three beaches that make this unique town one of the best beach towns in Costa Rica.
It can not go without mentioning that the best part about this town is the famous Rice and Beans that are cooked with coconut milk by the locals.
