We had an excellent time rafting on Sunday. The team were really friendly and looked after us first-time rafters very well. They were very aware of safety while making the trip fun for us all. Lunch was basic local produce with a glass of fruit juice, just what we needed after two hours on the river. Recommended.

Did this on the last day of our study abroad program. It was very well organized. Our guide, Steven, was great. We also got the opportunity to swim in the river and jump off a tiny cliff. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to go rafting in Costa Rica.

We had the best time rafting on the Sarapiqui River with Braulio! Just the right level of challenge, 2 +hours of adventure, a break with a snack of fresh fruit and a swim in the river in the middle: perfect. There were two of us in a raft with a family of four with two younger girls from Canada and... More

The rafting tour was a lot of fun, especially since it was our first time! The river was so clear that we could see all the fish! Our guides were fluent in English and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and pointed out cool critters as we saw them (monkeys, iguanas, birds, and even a baby gecko about the size of... More

I couldn't ask for a better experience. Definitely the highlight of my entire trip to Costa Rica. The rafting is exhilarating and a lot of fun. The workers are very friendly and fluent in English. The fruit you are given halfway through is delicious and fresh. The meal afterwards was delicious. If you are traveling to Costa Rica or planning... More

We really enjoyed our white water rating trip with Hansel. He was a great guide, and we enjoyed the beautiful sights along the way, and delicious lunch afterwards. Showers and changing rooms were available for us afterwards.

I had so much fun and would do it again in a heart beat! We started the tour by jumping off a small cliff and into the water. Our guide Domingo was amazing. He was very funny. The rapids were amazing and during the calm parts we were able to jump out and swim. Half way through the tour we... More
