Rafiki Lodge was the highlight of my week long trip to Costa Rica. We didn't stay there but Loki, one of our guides, came all the way to our rental property, jumped in one of our rental cars and provided directions to the lodge. He even came back with us to show us how to get home! The place itself is absolutely breathtaking. The views, the scenery were all picturesque. We came to the lodge to go whitewater rating and had an absolute blast doing so. They were able to accommodate our large group of 17 people. After some trips down the waterslide, and a delicious breakfast of either pancakes or traditional rice and beans, we were off with our guides for a safety lesson. The guides really made us feel safe as there was at least 1 guide per raft. An hour or so into our ride, we stopped and hiked up a hill for an amazing lunch. The rain started and turned our Category 2/3 raft ride into a 4/5. The guides kept their cool and made sure we felt safe the whole time. We had to end a bit early since the river got so fast but the experience in all was fantastic. While we waited for the bus to pick us up, the guides made a shelter from the rafts to keep us dry. I can't say enough about how great the staff and the great experience at Rafiki. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone staying in Costa Rica.
