This was our first white water rafting experience and it was the absolute highlight of our Costa Rican vacation. The two of us had a team of professionals: 4x4 driver, expert rafts man, a kayaker ahead of us below each of the rapids as a cautionary aide and a kayaker armed with a camera to catch action shots.

Man, this was one of the coolest things we did when we were in the Pura Vida country. When I went I was not expecting there to be whitewater so close to the coast, but im glad there was. This was an extremely well run and friendly crew of kids that take you up into the mountains and give you... More

Being young and frugle, we were originally a bit reluctant to spend the money to go on the white water rafting trip. But boy are we glad we did. We picked the "roughest" one and it really wasn't bad at all (due to the water being low). Jeudy was awesome--funny, smart, and great at spotting wildlife! We saw squirrel monkeys... More

Here's what to expect: Morning: Woke up super early and ate breakfast at our villa. Drove to Dominical downtown area to meet the guides. We signed waiver forms and got into the van with 2 guides and a driver. All of the gear was set on top. The ride was just over an hour and we chatted with our guides... More

My brother and i had a ton o fun. Even though we had rafted back in the states we were not disappointed on this trip down the Savagre river. Enough rapids to keep you occupied, great scenery and wonderful staff.... the snack and lunch sure didn't hurt either!

Henry and his wife Norma run a great business in Dominical. They organized a white water rafting trip for 10 of us on the Savagre River and we had a spectacular time! The river was a lot of fun, great rapids that kept our crew excited. We had kids ages 10 - 17 with us, and all of them enjoyed... More

I have done white water rafting in California before, so I had a certain expectation in my mind. Dominical Surf Adventures exceeded my expectations! Henry and his entire staff were top notch! Nice people that paid attention to details, right down to fixing us a great "snack" half way down the river complete with fresh fruit and freshly made guacamole.... More

The trip was a 10. The uniqueness of this company started during the ride to start the rafting adventure. The guides showed us local plants, animals, foods, etc... Once on the river they made sure we experienced a great time. We stopped for a great "snack" at a fantastic waterfall that was another 10. It ended with a great lunch... More

This was our first time to go white water rafting, and the guys at Dominical Surf Adventures were awesome. Both the guide and photographer were knowledgeable and fun, and they provided the perfect experience. They took us on a great 2.5 hour excursion on the Savegre River with Class II and III rapids, and the trip included a quick hike... More
