About This Pejibaye Guide
This guide gives very basic waypoints for the commercial Pejibaye run. It lacks medium and high water information.
You don’t need a four-wheel drive vehicle on this shuttle as there is easy road access. You can easily set a shuttle yourself or hire someone. Get in touch with Pacuare Outdoor Center if you would like to hire a guide or shuttle driver.
Like many rivers in this area, the Pejibaye River can flood easily. It is important to not be on the water if it is rising or if rain is in the forecast. Additionally, the river and rapids are in constant flux and change often. What was once a Class II rapid can shift with a flood and be a completely different rapid overnight. Channels close off while others open up.
Be on the lookout for strainers as those can be common on this stretch.
Pejibaye River – Class II, III & IV
A popular family-friendly river, this is considered the Costa Rica warm-up for kayakers and rafters before they tackle the more challenging runs in the area. Simple logistics make this an easy run to knock out. The rapids are more or less continuous and the trees overhang for much of the canyon creating a green rooftop canopy that feels like a Disney movie.
