We did the 10 in 1 with ADR. What a rush!!! They were VERY safety orientated. Did this with our kids (12 & 8), everyone enjoyed every step of the adventure. They even were great at getting me through one of my fears knowing I could do it. And didn't want me to miss out on any part of it.... More

Our family of 11 went rafting with ADR and enjoyed every part of it. The Staff we had (Chainy, Ivan, Kenneth) were amazing. Chainy did an excellent job explaining the local environment on the ride to the river (oh thanks to the excellent bus driver too). All of the staff were professional, friendly and truly interested in our safety. Nice... More

We did the afternoon session down the Sevegre on Monday 2/16/2015. A couple of the guys came to our villa to pick us up, which was great. They took us to their office for "lunch" which was really just iced tea, yellow rice with a tiny bit of chicken, a few vegetables and a paltry looking salad. So don't go... More

We went rafting on el choro and it was great! There is some serious inconsistency in their pricing for photo's I was quoted 3 different prices from 3 different people ($30,$35,$40). After negotiating the lowest price I ended up with only 40 pictures in my email that really made it seem very overpriced. I paid $30 to another company in... More

This is more than just a rafting trip, it is an experience! These guides made sure we had fun from the moment we were picked up at our hotel to the moment we we were dropped back off. Chainy educated and entertained us on the way to the river with information about the region. He was extremely knowledgable and even... More

A group of 6 went for what I though was a dangerous Whitewater rafting trip. Several of my fellow rafters had been before and they told me to bring nothing - no hat, no sun glasses, no money, no ID, no camera. They told me my body could be identified by dental records! What a bunch of nuts. Bring your... More

Amigos del Rio does a great job with their white water rafting tours on Rio Savegre Their guides are friendly, knowledgeable, and go out of their way to make the trip a great experience. The white water is exhilarating, and the river floating is relaxing and beautiful. I'd definitely recommend this fun adventure.

This was by far the best experience we had in costa rica. The guys that are your guides are extremely fun and phenomenal guides while rafting. The water you will see is some of the best in the world, even to the point that other guides would not take you down these Rapids. Absolutely worth the money, if I ever... More
