We had a wonderful rafting experience at Sarapiqui Outdoor Center. We were a group of 4 guys. Some of us had done rafting, but it was the first time for a few. We took a full day rafting package. We had two sessions, the morning session (2 to 3 hours) was on Class 4 cascades and afternoon session (2 hours)... More

Thanks to David and Andres for an exciting and safe ride down the river! My husband, and two sons, 19 and 21 were thrilled with the opportunity to participate in this new adventure, me, not so much....I was petrified at the thought of getting in the raft and getting tossed out or hurt. David and Andres gave great instruction on... More

I did the full day rafting trip with SOC. The morning was the rapid class III & IV, which with the recent rain was maybe even a notch up, and the afternoon, class II & III. David and his team are very professional. And while I fell off, I never felt endangered. They have total control of what they are... More

We recently did the full day Sarapiqui rafting experience with Sarapiqui Outdoor Center. This is a professional and safety-conscious company that promises a great day on the rapids, followed by a terrific Costa Rican BBQ lunch. I'd like to extend some praise to our courteous, knowledgable, and hilarious guide Luis who briefed us on safety procedures, then oversaw an exhilarating... More
