Days 5–6: Whitewater Rapids and the Beach

Next, you’ll board the raft again for the most challenging portion of the Pacuare River, passing through Class III and IV rapids surrounded by untouched rainforest. The reward waiting at the end of the journey is a Caribbean beach where you’ll spend the night at Cariblue and can shop for souvenirs and dance to reggae music.

  • Animals you might see: howler monkeys and sloths
  • Fun in the sun: At the beach, you can go snorkeling along coral reefs, hike into the national park in search for amazing wildlife or simply play in the surf with beach toys.
  • Back to Hotel Villa Florencia: On day 6, you’ll travel through mountains to return to the hotel where you spent the first 2 nights.

Days 7–8: Land Adventures and Departure

This was a great trip everything is taken care of and planned out. You just have to show up with what you need for the day each morning. The guides are awesome and funny. My favorite place to stay was the eco lodge. I highly recommend this trip.

This trip was more than I could have imagined it to be. We were first timers with rafting, kayaking, zip lining, and canyoning, but all of the guides (Chamo, Maliko, Ronnie, Mau, Cesar, Pablo) were amazing and we picked it up so quickly and had so much fun. The places we stayed were gorgeous and the food was great. We also saw a lot of wildlife. I would highly recommend this trip!
