San José To Boca Pacuare
San Jose to Boca Pacuare
We leave first thing from San Jose. Twenty minutes after leaving San José towards the Caribbean lowlands, you will drive into the Braulio Carrillo National Park, one of the largest and most diverse parks in the country. After approximately 30 minutes, you will descend into the lowlands, and you’ll be able to see the transition between the Cloud and the Rain Forest, breakfast will be taken in a restaurant on the way.
At mid-morning you’ll arrive to the port where you’ll get on a river boat. Your vacation begins in Boca Pacuare, as today’s destination is the fascinating canals of the Caribbean coast, considered the Costa Rican Amazon. Your boat will take you up to this area, with its extensive system of canals, and to the lodge where you will spend the next two nights. Your guide will give you detailed explanations of this complex Eco-system. Miles of untouched Caribbean beaches also offer the opportunity to see (when in season) the green sea turtle nesting or the leatherback sea turtle, the world’s largest and second largest sea turtle in the world.
