“Best whitewater rafting experience yet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

These guys are great guides. They are fun, experienced, knowledgable and safe. They were able to cater to all the different needs of our group: twenty somethings that wanted high adventure and lots of whitewater action, a five year old who wanted excitement but not be overwhelmed, and more low-key desires among some to not get too tossed around. The fact that these guys were able to pull it off for everyone is a testament to their talent.

I highly recommend going with them above anyone else. I would also choose this above almost any other adventure activity, as it's natural, exciting, fun, and has something for everyone.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We travel to Costa Rica at least once a year. We met Damian & Mel at the beach and immediately connected. These guys are professionals and extremely adventurous so it is a perfect combination. We had an amazing time white water rafting...Rafted for about 2-3 hours and then they took us to a nice tico restaurant. The food at that restaurant was one of the best "casados" we have had in all of Costa Rica! We all personally thanked the chef! When we return to Costa Rica we will definitely contact them for other adventures! Pura Vida!

“Great day with great guides!”

Damian and Mel are both terrific! We had an "off the beaten path" experience to the hot springs. Their knowledge and friendliness made for an enjoyable day. I will definitely be calling on them when I return!

“Great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Damien was a great tour guide. My friends and I went white water rafting with him and his aunt and niece. He was so much fun and upheld the highest safety precautions. The rafting took about 3 hours and had a stop at a waterfall where we were able to get out and swim, jump, and play. The tour also included a delicious lunch and transportation. I highly recommend this- you won't be disappointed! Damien was very knowledgable and it was obvious that he loves his job. He went above and beyond our expectations.
