The Pacuare River is world famous for its beauty. A true river gorge, it is flanked by steep, green walls. You will see waterfalls cascade into the river from both sides. Wildlife is abundant: sloth, toucans, parrots, coatis, butterflies and colorful frogs are common sights. Other inhabitants of this jungle: monkeys, jaguars, peccaries and tapirs generally stay more hidden. It is not an overly challenging river, but it has many rapids that will make your adventure very interesting and fun. The 18-mile-one-day-run includes a total of 38 rapids. Few rivers in the world can offer you so many rapids in such a short stretch of water. Upon arrival at the river, you will get geared up with a life jacket, helmet and paddle and then briefed with a full safety orientation talk by expert guides. The first 4 miles consist of class II-III rapids, a great time to test your new river skills, gain confidence in your team, and have fun. After about 40 minutes you will enter the Pacuare River Gorge, which is 5 miles long. After the gorge the river opens up to a 5 mile stretch called "Pacuare’s Valley." The river becomes wide open, giving you the opportunity to rest a bit and watch the varied wildlife. The final 3 miles are filled with class III rapids that will carry you all the way to the end.
