One of Chalos' favorite rafting runs: the Pascua section of the Reventazon [20 class IV rapids] has been diverted through two, 1 kilometer long tunnels just above the "Florida" section put-in. Last chance to run the upper part before it becomes a lake.
Come on Down to Turrialba! The rafting is allways "happening" at Locos Tropical Tours.

The Ladies on the Pacuare. Kathy brought 4 friends from Sacramento California for a river trip. Two sisters and their mom [84 years young] had a fantastic run.
We found this article about Turrialba in Rough Guide today. We agree with their observation that
"scenic Río Pacuaré is the pick of the bunch; regarded as one of the top five rafting rivers in the world, its class III and IV rapids gush between banks laden with primary jungle"
The Lonely Planet website ran a short article about Turrialba. They mention how the town decided to take a more laid-back lifestyle over a frantic rush towards being a huge tourist area. We think it was a good decision!
In the guide book they also say some nice things about Loco's [all true]. also check out their "chat room" and "bulletin board" for recent comments about our rafting tours.
The New York Times ran an article about Costa Rica ecotourism vacations today, and prominently mentioned Rio Locos and our guide Chalo. You can read the article here.
