posa azul is fun. clean 30 footer on the bottom with some meatier sutff above it. i've only done the bottom one.

san miguel section of the saripiqui has some good stuff on it. same with the upper saripiqui.

upper pacuare is really fun too. easy to get shuttles there.

Been over there twice

One time with Endless Rivers
one time as a private but Rios Rios in Turrialba took care of bus and boats etc we just told them where we wanted to go - ideal way to do it as they were quality outfitters.

Both times we headquartered out of Turrialba most of the time but did travel around.

All I can say is that is a very nice place to be paddling in the winter. One trip was in November and we hit big time water, next was in Jan and it was lower. Ran several of the same rivers on both trips and I can say they are fun runs at all levels.

Not much detail beta from me here but go to Turrialba and hang out but do a search here and on Boater Talk and you will get a bunch of posts.

In Turriabla you want to meet Mario and another dude whose name escapes me now, but they are super nice paddlers who use gringos for paddling partners who pay for there trips.

They hooked use up with drivers and shuttles and beta but didn't pay a bit of gas or other expenditures.

I'll remember the names soon and get back...

lower pacuare is pretty, easy but worth it
upper pacuare is awesome, miles of class four boulder gardens - at the right level like 8 miles of kirschbaums
Pasqua section of the reventazon is fun big water class IV must do if running

There is some little town near the Chirripo[sp] Pacifico that is the new creeking hub for gnar boaters ,can't recall the name,check the last threads about CR .I think Gary E. and Cutch based trips out of there.Ain't been to CR but studied up on it quite a bit,the upr. Toro sounds really good whitewater and scenery wise.There is big water play on the General not too far from that little town.Have Fun .

When exactly are you planning to go? I was hoping to go down around the end of March but heard that the rainy season is just getting underway at that time and it would be hit or miss. It would be sweet to hook up with someone with similar interests. My wife has been before, speaks spanish and can't wait to go boating down there again.
