Dani and his team (Juan the guide, Alonso and the driver I forgot his name) made the tour amazing. It made so much fun to do the rafting, first of all because of the rafting, but secondly because the team knows a lot about the environment (fruits, vegetables, animals, trees, towns). When we went home we were tired but completely satisfied because of a day with a lot of fun and new knowledge! Para vida anigos!

This was one of our favorite excursions in Costa Rica. Our 3 kids (ages 14, 12 and 8) went with us and all had a great time. It was safe, but exciting and adventurous. There were smaller children in our group who sat in the middle of their raft. OUr family of 5 had the entire raft to ourselves along our guide who was fun and informative. It was a total of about 4 hours and 10 miles of rafting wish stops to eat fresh fruit, swim and float down the river, jump off a cliff and gaze at wildlife. We saw sloths, iguanas, bats and birds. They picked us up at our hotel on time and returned us. We really enjoyed the photographer who captured some amazing family photos and the opportunity to review them over a delicous lunch. The air and water temps were perfect in March. Highly recommend!

Great day trip, these guys were alot of fun and made the daily super enjoyable. Highly recommend them for couples, singles, or family's. Gordo was full of energy and the main guy really kept the group fun. FYI if decide to bring cash with you while rafting keep it secure otherwise you'll be donating it to the river gods and your guides wont be happy hahah

We had a blast Rafting through the Balsa River. Our guide Tom made the tour to such a great experience. Drivning to the river he tankes about Costa Rica and the surroundings we were going through. The river rafting was a fun and exciting experience. Not to tough, we were happy we chose the 3-4 level. Sometimes it felt a little slow since we had to wait for the other boats and groups. But Tom made it fun and special even in those moments. Half way through we got the best Mango we have ever eaten and the lunch was good too. Would definitely recommend this tour.
