I had a blast! The guide was fantastic!! Very knowledgeable and funny. He even tried to tip our raft a few times(with the consent of the rest of the group of course). The dog(Piqui) that jumped from raft to raft was also very fun to have around!

Came to Costa Rica on a school trip, and white water rafting was by far my favorite activity. The route was beautiful, the guides were super fun and knew so much about the plants and animals surrounding the river, and Piqui the dog is the most awesome little guy ever! Highly recommend!

I had such a great time white water rafting with Dinghy Expeditions. Our guide was super friendly and fun while making sure we were safe throughout the experience. The river is beautiful and you get to see many different types of wildlife. We saw various types of birds, including herons and ospreys. At one point, a monkey sat perched in a tree above us. A truly exhilarating experience I will remember forever!
