While I was in Costa Rica with the Gift of Happiness Campaign I had the distinct pleasure of white water rafting on the Pacuare River. I filmed this video and it turned out better than I had hoped for. I`m new to this whole `video game`and by no means consider myself an editor in any stretch of the sense. We battled Class III & IV rapids with ease and grace or so I say to save face.
If you`re thinking of doing something like this, I recommend it. It wasn`t that difficult but it was a lot of fun. If you really want to get “wet and wild”, I suggest you visit mid- late October as that is the full brunt of rainy season. You`ll see rocks on the side normally but when the river is running full it`s a whole new experience, supposedly. I`m still in Costa Rica and I now know why late October is the deadest time of the year for tourism, it`s POURING here on the Osa Peninsula.
Naturally that pouring would make for poor vacation photos but an epic trip down the Pacuare River…
Oh yeah, I wrote about the experience here and here earlier if you`d like to know more.
