We are a family of 5 with kids 15, 14 and 11. We went tubing in July 2021 and had a blast. Nicki made everything so easy for us to book and meet at the river. Jose and Rocky were our guides and they were awesome. They could move around in their kayaks so fast while we were tubing that there was never a time that we didn’t feel safe but yet we were in some fun rapids most of the time on this dam-fed river. Nice stop with some fruit and Jose showing us some local plants and wildlife too. Great value and great time. Highly recommend. Pura Vida!!

We had a great time with 2 guides river tubing. It was a bit tricky to find but we found it after Nicky was waving us down in the street! 2 adults and 3 teens. The guides will allow you to clip in with them or go on your own. It was a lot of fun. We stopped about half way through for a pineapple and mango snack. The guide showed us a fish he caught and also a dart frog. It was great listening to him tell us how his family catches dart frog and puts them in a container with darts overnight. Then they shake the container in am and the dart frogs release their poison onto the darts. They use the darts to throw at animals to catch for food. Interesting! It was a fun tour down the river and we would do this again.

My family booked the river tubing adventure and had the best time! From the booking process, to the pick up to the activity itself, it was all perfect. Our kids are 12, 10 and 8 and it was exactly the right amount of "rapids" for them to feel like they were getting a real river rafting experience (though in an inner tube!) The guides were excellent and knowledgeable and everyone had a great time. Would definitely recommend, especially for families.

This was such a fun activity and one of favorites while here in La Fortuna area! Our guide Jose was very talented at maneuvering the river and helped us pull over for a closer look at the sloths and iguanas!

My boyfriend Greg and I had the absolute best time on this tubing adventure! It was the highlight of our stay in La Fortuna & would recommend it to anyone :) The guides were right there every second of the way & had the best tasting pineapple EVER (amongst other snacks) half way through the float. Thank you!
