Super professional company with excellent staff. The rides from our hotel to and from the activities were prompt and communication was great. LOVED both the zip lining and white water rafting experiences, probably the best part of our entire Costa Rica trip! Lunch at the end of the day was also great. Definitely a must-do activity for any Costa Rica trip.

My friend and I wanted to learn more about Costa Rica’s culture and this tour was perfect for it!! We cooked authentic food from scratch and learned how to dance salsa, merengue, and bachata. Rosa was an amazing instructor, we had so much fun!!!

We repelled the waterfalls and did a great hike in between. You must be in pretty good shape as you have to climb a lot of steps at the end. We had two great guides Roni and Deigo who made the experience fantastic. They made you feel safe repelling and they were a lot of fun. Thanks you.

I think this is an under appreciated event / tour. Our group of 4 had the boat alone. It’s a sunset cruise but the weather only offered a small glimpse of sunset, and that was ok. Brian was our captain and took us to a fishing hole that was unexpected ( and sadly unsuccessful but not from lack of efforts) Marcos was our guide / driver / mixologist (and historian) He did an excellent job and is a credit to his company. The cruise was about 1 1/2 hrs, included snacks and drinks and transportation. This was a winner among our various tours while in La Fortuna.

we had a really fun morning!...the organisation was great...transfer picked us up on time...took us to the lodge for kitting out...and afterwards took us for a local lunch then back to the hotel. The experience was a lot of fun and very safe.The guides had a great sense of humour. One of them takes pics on each of the rappels so you will have the evidence of you bravery! We really enjoyed the canyon away from roads and people...almost like being in the jungle!!

What an experience! Mau and Otto were the perfect hosts. Mau's passion and love of nature is on display as he navigated our way through the beautiful maze of rainforest. I learned more than I thought I wouldand was extremely impressed with his knowledge and kindness!

This tour was a great way to begin a first day in Fortuna/Arenal. Mauricio provided us with history and facts about Costa Rica that enabled us to appreciate the area more. The ride was challenging, yet fun and provided amazing views each step of the way. Gilroy who drove the van behind us assisted us with water if we needed! I would definitely recommend this as a must do tour on your first day visiting the Fortuna region. Pura Vida!

I did the pedal and paddle tour with Mau and Rogelio. It was an excellent day. The mountain biking was just right to make it good exercise but not too strenuous in the heat. After some refreshing pineapple we went paddle boarding and got more spectacular pictures of the volcano and lake. I also did the kayaking with Desafio with Gustavo and Julio. Also an excellent experience. I booked everything by email directly with Desafio and they were really helpful, tailoring my activities to the limited time I had in La Fortuna. I definitely recommend this company.

Where to even begin. The whole day was absolutely amazing and was included the perfect amount of time for both activities. The canyoning will get your heart racing as you rappel down waterfalls, and you will be soaked the entire time so be sure to wear clothes you and shoes you don’t mind getting wet. The white water rafting was also the perfect amount of thrill. Both activities provided us with the opportunity to buy pictures which turned out amazing. Highly recommend this tour and this company!
