Fabian picked us up for our villa. We got there and they served a delicious breakfast. It was about a 30 minute drive to El Chorro river. It was by far the funnest thing we did in Costa Rica thus far. Even better than Canopy ziplining. It was our first experience and all of our guides were well experienced. Fabian... More

Our first white water rafting trip was so fun I would definitely do it again! Our guide, Kenneth, was great and made my sister, husband and I feel very safe with his expertise! The rapids were challenging but fun and the scenery was absolutely beautiful! Someone spotted some toucans in a smooth section of the river so we all stopped... More

We had a great day rafting with William as our guide. Even though this is the dry season we still had a lot of fun. Our boys are 22 and 25 so William challenged them a bit which they enjoyed. Breakfast was good, the pineapple and iced tea at the waterfall was wonderful, and lunch was delicious. William was very... More

Amigos Del Rio provided us with an enjoyable white water rafting experience from start to finish. We were a little nervous about taking our seven-year-old and our nine-year-old white water rafting, but given that it was dry season and the rapids were relatively calm, we decided we would try it. They loved it, and we all had a great time.... More

Our family of 5 (kids ages 7, 11 & 12) recently took the class II/III Rio Savegre trip with ADR. All the guides/drivers/employees were so nice, helpful and funny. I wish our Spanish was a fraction as good as their English! We began with breakfast at ADR's office - beans, rice, eggs and fruit (and the yummy Lizano sauce we... More

We had a fantastic time white water rafting today!! We were given the choice of a less challenging or a more challenging course and we were so glad we picked the more exciting option. As none of our group of 4 had ever done this before, we wanted to get the most out of it. Our guides, Kenneth & Fabian,... More

Went with several families, the guides were very professional and courteous , the river was scenic and the water temperature was perfect. It's a level 2 river but we hit a couple of level 3 spots that made our 9 year old jump but our guide was very capable and was in control of the raft.

Before I begin my complaints, I need to say that everything was wonderful except for one part. The bus was great. Food was great. The guide on the raft (except for the fun, whitewater sections) was great. If you're looking for a very safe, but still enjoyable time, this company is for you. However, if you want any adrenaline rush,... More
