Born in the foothill of Cordillera de Talamanca, extended throughout the Jiménez canton and surrounded by the picturesque Tucurrique and Pejibaye towns is the beautiful Pejibaye river, one of the most important natural areas in this region due to its crystalline water and its rain forest. It is adequate for rafting as people of any age can enjoy completely by mixing adrenaline with landscape beauty. ”

The tour starts in Alajuela, crossing San José and the Cartago province (the first capital of the country); we take a look at the Apóstol Santiago Ruins and the Los Ángeles Virgin Bassilica that keeps Los Ángeles Virgin, the Costa Rican Patron. Immediately, we arrive at Sanchirí Restaurant and Mirador in Paraíso de Cartago for an excellent typical breakfast. Then, we continue to the Pejibaye town crossing the Cachí Hydroelectric Dam (the first in our country) and observe plantations of “chayotes”, “pejibayes”, ferns and coffee as well as the majestic Velo de Novia waterfall.

At around 9:30 a.m. we meet the rest of the team in Taus, a town where rafting guides and kayakers deliver life jackets, helmets and paddles. They will be waiting for you enthusiastically to offer a day full of emotions through the water of this wonderful river. They will also give a safety speech and once you are prepared into the boat, your life adventure is about to start!

The section of the Pejibaye river has class II and III rafting ideal for nature lover adventurers and for family joy. During the two hour journey you can admire a great variety of birds like: toucans, herons and cormorants, and the end of the journey will be a peaceful rest crossing La Angostura Dam lake in Turrialba, where we can leave the paddles and enjoy the beautiful site. We will dock beside the lake for a shower, change clothes and transportation to Sanchirí
Restaurant & Mirador crossing Turrialba. Their personnel will be waiting for us with a delicious lunch and then, we will return to San José using the same departure route.
