We had a fun and educative road trip in a nice little bus up to the Savegre river where we were going to do a half day of water rafting. The staff was great, fun and knowledgeable.

We were originally scheduled for the Pacuare overnight which we will go back and do but it was canceled due to excessive water from recent storms. We did the Savegre instead and did not regret it!! Beautiful river and our guide Eduardo showed us Vanilla, clove and Cinnamon growing which was a highlight. Very scenic, clean and perfect sized rapids... More

This was an outstanding guided river trip. I have been on many guided raft trips in the United States and this was by far one of the best day trips. We went on the Savegre River with the H2O tour group. They were very safety oriented, which was good because the river was roaring and we all flipped out of... More

This tour was wonderful! My family (kids 10 & 12) love rafting. Our guide, Christopher, was fabulous! Even the long drive to the put-in was wonderful. Christopher educated us on so many things we were seeing on the drive - industries in Costa Rica, other towns, certain plants, animals, etc. The stop at the waterfall was very cool...they even brought...

We (three adults, two children age 6) loved our day with H2O, spent on the Saavedra under the guides Alvaro and Flippy. These two were great - incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, skilled.

Start your adventure being picked up at your hotel/villa.Then you are taken via a scenic ride to the Savegre River where you will begin your tubing adventure. It is a bit more than just a float as you did have to do a bit of work to keep yourself where you needed to be,but well worth the trip for sure.Staff... More
