      Peaceful, relaxing river trip
      Jonathon was great! We didn’t see too many animals because it was very hot but the river was beautiful and it was a relaxing trip. Thank you!

      Fun tubing on the water with excellent guides...
      An exciting morning tubing expedition (about 2hrs), during which you float on giant inner tubes down the beautiful Rio Celeste. This is a fantastic experience with a combination of calm water where you can relax, and rapids where you have to hold on tight! i am nervous in water but the 2 guides (Anthony + ?) were excellent at helping people when required. They even shot some great video for everyone... We had a traditional lunch back at the base before being transferred back in the mini bus.

      Amazing experience
      Amazing experience! The water is so warm & so blue. The foliage was beautiful. Just enough rapids to keep it interesting but tons of lazy river floating. The Tarzan swing was great. Our guide Carlos was wonderful. Would also recommend lunch at the restaurant/hotel pickup location. Best food we had in Costa Rica.

      Fun and fabulous
      More of an adventure than I expected- very fun small rapids, which our guide expertly navigated us through. I loved that our guide held on to our tubes and directed the flow. A few in our group asked to be independent and that was allowed, too. Breath taking scenery.

      Great tour for families!
      We did this with an 8yo and 6yo and it was great! Not too crazy, couple faster areas and couple slow areas - a nice mix of both and amount of time is perfect. So beautiful and just a great experience! One of my favorite tours from our CR vacation!

      Fun time on Rio Celeste
      Fun trip. Excellent and relaxing way to experience the rainforest. Our guide, Andreas worked hard to steer us comfortably through the rapids.

      Refreshing oasis
      Totally gorgeous landscape, refreshing cool water, safe and fun tubing. Our pleasant and capable guide pointed out local flora and fauna. We enjoyed pineapple and watermelon after the tubing. Side note: We ate nachos at the hotel sueño (the meeting place) before our activity, and they were delicious and a great value.

      A trip highlight
      Our family thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The river was stunning, Milton our tour guide was great, and the tubing was great fun and safe. We saw a sloth and some dart frogs, and the river was a lovely shade of turquoise-blue. A highlight of our vacation.

      Great experience if the water level is not too low.
      It was nice. However very long, due to the low water level. It was difficult to get though/over the rocks sticking out of the water. We got stuck very often. The guides tried to help at their best. They were very nice. Tipp: At the start they told us that we have to float in pairs (holding on to eachothers tubes). This was very annoying since we got stuck all the time and the guides were pushing, squeezing, tearing us over the rocks. So after 20min we asked to float by ourselves which was much more relaxing.

      Gorgeous, one of a kind experience
      My husband, sons (22 and 24) and I really enjoyed this float. The river and scenery are truly gorgeous, like nothing I’d ever seen. And the tubing action on the rapids was fun but not scary at all. Your experience is going to vary depending on the water level—faster if the water is higher. We did this on our transfer day driving from La Fortuna to Tamarindo. Worked out well. FYI our car full of luggage was safe at the hotel meetup point, something I had worried about. Highly recommend!

      Fun, fun, fun
      Milton was fantastic! He took photos for us, showed us monkeys and sloths. The river is so beautiful and the water was perfect, not too cold. We felt safe, and had fun. Milton is engaging and we enjoyed getting to know him. The volcanic mud for facials was a bonus!!

      AMAZING
      What an amazing tour!!! The Celeste river is beautiful as seen in the photos. We had a great time, so much fun, so much laughing. Milton was our guide and he made our experience unforgettable, especially for our teenage children. He was very friendly, funny, engaging and informative. Definitely made this experience one of a kind.

      Great day on the river! Fun for all ages.
      Milton and the other guides were sooo great. Making our experience with a group from 65-3 years old very enjoyable and extra safe for the little ones. Coming back through the farm to the original meet up spot was also a highlight for the kids of the group! Thank you again to the whole team, amazing time! Highly recommend. One tip, when booking even for children under 4. Choose the kid option, they accommodated our 3 year old expertly.

      Fun ride, beautiful scenery
      Definitely not a lazy river tubing but a fast snd safe fun adventure down a beautiful river. Our guide Jimmy is a super nice guy that made sure that we enjoyed the ride and the scenery. Our driver Carlos was also very nice. Both of them were on the lookout for animals and we learned a lot from them. Carlos had towels waiting for us as well as a great display of fruit when we came out of the river.
