Only positives things to say about Amigos Del Rio. We went with a large group (4 adults and 5 kids) and everyone had a great day. The guides were knowledgeable and fun, the river was beautiful and the rapids great for the kids (while not overly challenging due to still low water levels). The hiking and swimming was an added...

First time Rafter but adrenaline Junky here to say that rafting down the Chorro with Fabian and Amigos Del Rio was definitely something I got to cross off the bucket list today (even though I plan on going back again... and again....and again....) But from start to finish everything was extremely professional as well as exciting. The guides are extremely... More

We were a group of 8 and we had a great day rafting with William as our guide. The rapids were a little disappointing because it is the dry season we still had a lot of fun. We had two 12 year olds and two 10 year olds in our raft and they thought it was a thrill! William was... More

Our group of 17 did the 10-in-1 excursion with ADR a couple of days prior to this excursion. Although I was hopeful, I didn't think this trip would be better than our first. I'm glad to write that I was wrong. Once again Fabian and his crew shined. Our group was equally split on which excursion they liked better, which... More

I can't say enough great things about the Amigos del Rio 10 in 1 Adventure tour. We went with two younger teens and had a great time. It is going to be one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. Even the ride through the plantations and up the mountain to the location where the tour starts was... More

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
