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

We just finished an afternoon rafting with David that was so amazing I had to write about it immediately. We had five people in our group, including my mother, my husband and our two children, ages 10 and 12, and a great time was had by all. The guides were extremely friendly and David pointed out birds and wildlife at... More
