This water rafting trip was by far the best value of anything I did on my trip. With pick up right from my hotel in San Jose, free breakfast and lunch, 4 hours on the water, all for $99, what a deal. I went by myself and met some great people and our guide was awesome. Was given several opportunities... More

This was just a fantastic day, rafting through a beautiful national park on the river Pacuare. The drive is a little arduous, around 2.5 hours, but well worth it. The team were friendly and everything was well organised. The scenery was stunning, the water warm and the rapids just angry enough to make it adventurous without being dangerous.

I booked a tour from the hostel, which included the transportation from SJ-rafting base-La Fortuna, and breakfast & lunch also included. team of 6 plus a raft guide were on the same raft.

We, my friends and I, were asked about our age when we announced to our travel agent that we wanted to participate in a white wather rafting. We said 42 years because we wanted it to be good speed on the choice of the river. There is nothing we regret. Even the bus ride up to the start was exciting... More

Beautiful scenery on a river with Class 3 and 4 rapids. There are several nice waterfalls to view as you pass by. Take a waterproof camera with a long cord that you can leash to the straps of the flotation vest.
