Hidden Paths 3-day adventure

Where the adventure begins

If you’re looking for an adventure off the beaten path, full of adrenaline, nature and contact with indigenous communities, this is the one for you!
Day 1
This epic journey starts with a mountain bike ride of 34 km to the indigenous community of Simiriñak in Cabecar Territory. Our support vehicle will meet us there with all our camping equipment. After pitching our tents and taking a shower, a delicious home-cooked meal awaits. Then some rest to recharge batteries for the next day.
Day 2

After a nourishing breakfast, we’ll break camp and get on the trail. We will hike through the mountains on the same trails that the Cabecar indigenous group uses. This trail cuts through the forest and pasture lands, and after 20km of breathtaking views you’ll find yourself in Alto Pacuare.

There you’ll meet with Doña (Mrs.) Ligia, and we will camp in her farm. In the afternoon you can join the family in their everyday activities, explore the area or just have some coffee and chill. The house is powered by their own electric plant and may have limited supply of electricity.

Day 3

We’ll wrap up our epic adventure with the exclusive experience of rafting the Top section of the world-renowned Pacuare River with class III and IV rapids. This is not the touristic section of the river, and very few people have the great opportunity of rafting this upper section, so we will have it all for ourselves.
