This is a very important and urgent message. The Costa Rican electric company wants to damn the Pacuare river. I live in Turrialba currently and they just damned up el rio turrialba which was a great river close to town. Now they want to damn one of the best rivers in the world. This will not only affect your ability to Kayak it one day, but thousands of people earn their living taking raft and kayak tours on the Pacuare. Please go to www.pacuareriver.com to sign a petition and see if there is anything you can do. Also tell anyone you can who has a love for paddling to try to support the fight against this terrible tragedy from occuring.
