My wife and I spent 9 days in Costa Rica traveling throughout the country for our honeymoon. While we booked our trip through Gecko Trail Adventures (who were excellent at well), we quickly found that we were going to be very familiar with the Exploradores team throughout the trip. Our first experience with them was when they picked us up... More

We did the adventure transfer from Puerto Veijo to Arenal which includes white water rafting on the pacuare river. The entire day was awesome! We got breakfast at the starting point and all the guides on the buses were super energetic and great at explaining the day ahead. Our guide on the raft was Kendal and he was really knowledgeable....

We went whitewater rafting down the Pacuare River and loved it! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone and this company was fantastic. Our guide was a lot of fun and made sure we understood all of the directions before we started. It was an amazing experience.

Incredible experience! Laura, our guide, was very knowledgable, had a sense of humour and showed us so many birds, monkeys, fauna and insects. The large canoe trip was her idea and really worth it! Instead of using motor boats...we quietly manouevered the canals thus seeing more and having a beautiful adventure. The hike, early morning motor boat excursions, meals and... More

The Exploradores Outdoors team picked us up in Cahuita early in the morning on Thursday for a 2-day rafting trip on the Pacuare River. They then bring you to a central area where everyone going on all the various trips (Tortuguero, 1-day rafting, etc.) gathers for breakfast, then you go off your separate ways. It's extremely efficient and well-organized. You... More

We wanted to do a white water rafting trip and some zip lining. Miguel said he could arrange all this. I had to do nothing. after several email... More

My boyfriend and I had a fantastic day white water rafting. The young guy who picked us up in San Jose was very friendly, lovely and helpful. The breakfast (eggs, rice, granola, fruit, juice) sets u up for a day on the water and the lunch is just as great. The rafting itself was so fun! I was quite nervous... More
