Do you love squeezing as much adventure into your vacations as possible? Are you an “off the beaten path” kind of traveler? Last week, we highlighted some epic eco tours that are the choicest during Costa Rica’s Green Season. We want to tell you a little more about one of our all-time favorites: whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River.
This is possibly the most thrilling experience you can find during the Costa Rica Green Season, and it’s right in the backyard of The Goddess Garden.
Whitewater Rafting In Costa Rica On The Pacuare River
An Experience Unique to the Costa Rica Green Season
Costa Rica doesn’t seem like the first place a person would seek out for a rafting trip. But during Costa Rica’s Green Season, you don’t want to choose another location! While the Cahuita area around The Goddess Garden has amazing weather June through December, the rest of the country gets a lot of rain. This means full rivers, and the best rafting experience you could hope to have.
Imagine floating a beautiful river through the rainforest. The tranquil noise of the water is accompanied by the sounds of tropical birds, insects and other wildlife. You’ve found your nature-loving bliss.
All of a sudden, your raft guide goes into action mode. Everyone is paddling as you’re swept into the rapids. Your team works together to navigate the ups and downs as your raft is tossed among the waves. Then the water calms, and you again find yourself in a floating oasis.
This eco tour is the perfect mix of finding your Zen with nature and embarking on a one-of-a-kind thrill ride!

Whether you’ve never been rafting in your life or you’re an old hand at the paddle, rafting during the Costa Rica Green Season is sure to be a rewarding journey. Our experienced guides will help you feel at ease. A new adventure can sometimes seem scary and daunting, but your rafting guide will be with you every step of the way.
