I recomment, pay for the pictures they are an amazing souvenir. Ask for Derek from USA he is an excellent tour guide. During the trip, you can go to an amazing waterfall, swim and stay under it for a while, be careful walking to get there. (Must use wear sport shoes or water shoes, NOT SANDALS). There's another stop where... More

Website told us what we needed, but felt it wasn't accurate. Didn't need the recommended jacket and towel (they give you a towel at the end). You must have correct foot wear (water shoes/sandals) and wear a short or long sleeve rash guard-type shirt (not t-shirts). They will sell you all of these there if needed but PLEASE NOTE: They...

I second all the other reviews: this is a very exciting and extremely well organised minor expedition. Just be fairly fit, and get ready for a super time. Incredible value!

Incredible experience with an awesome group of people! For $99, the one-day Pacuare tour includes all transportation, breakfast/lunch, as well as an amazing time. Pick up and drop off location can be different-- take advantage of this perk. Shout out to our guide Roberto! Safety was priority on our raft, but in no way did this take away from the... More

This rafting tour was great!!!! The tour guides were super nice. And the river was amazing. It was raining plus the river water in the rain forest was perfect. No doubt that I will be back!!!!!

During booking the "overnight rafting" experience we didn't expect so much.. it's been really fun and exciting the rafting along the Rio Pacuare and so romantic and relaxing spend a night at the river camp. The rafting guys, Roy and Abel, have been very professional and hospitable. they served us a romantic dinner with candles and wine in the jungle.... More

We did the one-day trip down the Pacuare on August 11th. We went with Costa Sol from San Jose and their guides were excellent and safety-conscious. It's a long day, but well worth the $99 per-person cost. Raul was our guide throughout the day and Juan led us down the river while Raul served as our safety kayaker. They were... More

I booked this trip with some friends through Costa del Sol, and we had a blast. It's a long day, so be prepared to be picked up early in the morning, and not get back til early evening. There's a stop for breakfast prior to rafting which is decent. The rafting trip itself was great, and its amazingly scenic. Lunch... More

I booked the 1 Day tour through Gecko Trails. The tour bus picked me up on time at the entrance of Cahuita National Forrest. it was clean and comfortable but, as is the case with all bus situations in Costa Rica, they aren't big on the bathroom breaks. i suggest hydrating the day before any sort of travel in CR,...
