If you have an inclining to go rafting in Costa Rica - the Sarapaqui Outdoor Center is your place. David runs an amazing guide service - right on the river, and the river (Sarapaqui) is awesome, pretty rowdy - yet not frightening.. I have been around rivers for many, many years - and have never seen a paddle captain with... More

On the 12th of september we made an AMAZING RAFT on the PACUARE river in COSTA RICA. This class IV river with very nice rapids is a must for every adventurous person. During the calm sections you can enjoy the more than beautiful scenery and amazing views. The section of the 'dos montañas' we went in the water and floated... 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

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

If you are interested in any other activities in the area David can probably arrange it for you, he is full of local knowledge if he does not know he knows the person that... More

We wanted a high-adrenaline experience, but had no rafting skills. David trained us well and gave us a great rafting trip on the class 4 rapids. His company is small, family-owned, and he is very safety-conscious. We were treated well, right down to the excellent lunch (more like a feast) prepared by Dona Anna after the trip. We had to...
