  • In October of the 2014 coworkers we walk by one day rafting on the Pacuare River, located in Turrialba, an experienced young man who despite his disability was excellent company is called Ecxaimen and the Guide, is called Sasy.La company offers transportation from San José and Heredia, Turrialba went to a restaurant "The House of Doña Bety" where they gave us a breakfast supulento, (here can be leveraged to buy souvenirs and some of snack for the return, then continue to addresses where the raft.). Had the luck that the River was very good flow, gave us the equipment, signs, we leave all bags and petenencias on the bus (very confident there's no fear that something is lost) and we begin the adventure, suddenly with submerged up to level 4, beautiful landscapes, halfway rest for a tropical luncheon, in all the journey accompanies a cayak by security and at the same time taking photos. The Guide as a connoisseur explained details of the scenery. It is extremely beautiful, relaxing but well tired. When we got to the end I was the bus waiting for us, bathed, changed, sizes a beer, we compare the Cd with photos and back. It is a whole day dictionaries.
