  1. Rafting | Trip Planner
    Hi, I have about a week in Costa Rica from Mar 3-11th coming up. Anyone have beta on what rivers I should hit in this season (I know its dry season) and how I might be able to stay somewhere and rent gear cheaply? Any good kayak hostel hubs I might just stay at, rent gear, and meet other...
  2. Aire Cougar frame project

    This is the first river trial. Design is not complete. This worked pretty well. Notice the rowing position is far forward with the heavy cargo loaded in the center of the raft. That's how you load an airplane. Here it is being done for maneuverability - the moment arm of the weight about the...

    Let a brother know. I moved from Golden to the San Jose area this past summer and brought gear down in a container. I have three boats, an inflatable SUP, and a raft that I can hook up fellow Buzzards with if you're down here for a trip and I'm not using them. I have: A Jackson 4Fun A Jackson...

    Headed to Costa Rica for two weeks of boating in January! To update a previous thread and for those that are interested: We booked our flights on Southwest Air and they allow our creekers for $75 each way with no questions asked. Props to SW Air. Stoked to have my own boat and gear on the...

    Me and a buddy were looking for hostel recommendations for the Turrialba region of costa rica. Preferably somewhere close to the Rio Pacure or where logistics might be easier. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ryan

    Going to spend a few months mostly rafting, but kayaking as well. Most of these will be done in white water sections near the coast, with occasional runs up to the highlands. Will be from Dec-April. Trying to cut down on weight. Bringing splash pants, but undecided on whether or not I Should...

    I have a trip coming up to Costa Rica, leaving on Nov 23 and returning to the states on Dec 4th. I am looking into doing some rafting. I have read up on the old threads on the Buzz but I am hoping to get some more advice. I am considering doing a two day trip on the Pacuare with a possible...

    I am thinking of heading to CR in February and want to get some info on whitewater (volume) at that time of year and if the Rio General is anywhere as good as the Rio Pacuare. Also, any other rivers on the Pacific side that might be good. Duckie Doug

    Headed to Costa Rica in June with the family and looking to do more than just the beach thing. I hear Pacure is the absolute best river to be on, but I don't have multiple days, nor do I think they will let a 10 and 13 year old on the boat (well, at least the 10 year old). As such, looking at...

    I am traveling to Costa Rica very soon on a solo backpacking trip and really want to do some kayaking while im there. I have spoken with a few outfits that will rent me a boat and show me around for a decent fee. However they want me to bring my own gear (paddle, skirt, pfd, and helmet.) As I...
