We booked the 4-Day-Trip with a 3 day stay at the lodge in August 2014. The minibus picked us up at the Hotel in San Jose. At the river, we met our guide, Otto. He took care of us for the following 4 days, like a nurse :-) He was the boss in the boat, he cooked tasty meals for... More

I can't say enough about our guides--Vernie, Juan Carlos, Leo and Alex. There were experts at everything---rafting, cooking, zip-lining, nature. Plus they were warm, friendly and funny. They were most capable on the river and were "right there" for the few who fell in. We were in good hands. The lodge is magnificent. The rooms, although simple and small, were... More

Before the rafting we were apprehensive, but there was no reason to be, it was honestly the most fun i have ever had. The rafting was brilliant and i imagine it would have been brilliant even if our guides had been just doing their jobs, but the guides went above and beyond what was expected of them and truly became...

We spent 2 days with the Rios Tropicales team and had a great experience from start to finish! The rafting on day one (with Alex and Leo as guides) was great fun, followed by a superb dinner at the lodge - beautiful accommodation in a stunning location! On our second day (after an excellent breakfast!!) we did some zip wiring,... More

We booked the two day overnight rafting trip to Rio Tropicales. After a funny, and very bumpy, tractor ride to the river on the first day, we were met by Leo and Alex (our guides).

My wife, daughter and I took the two-day one-night rafting trip. It was a fantastic experience that we'll never forget. Booking was easy. The whole thing is very well organized. Pick-up from and return to our hotel (in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui -- no extra charge) went smoothly. Breakfast was fine. The rafting was exhilarating and challenging (people did fall... More

My Mom and I stayed one night at Rios Tropicales on April 22. It was incredible from the journey there on the raft, to the fantastic river guides/chefs, to the accommodations. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an adventurous vacation!
