Highlight of my trip to Costa Rica!! Absolutely must do with this group! Everyone is highly trained (heard about the extensive qualification for the guides) and I felt extremely safe the entire time even though we went through some wild class 5 rapids. They took us down a gorgeous part of the river that is only available in the summer, so I would highly recommend going before the rainy season. Three of us in the group rode with Kenneth and he was FANTASTIC and definitely added to the experience!! Great at giving clear commands and communicating with us. Very knowledgeable about the vegetation and wild life on the river which was very fun to hear about during the smoother parts of the rapids. 100% worth the price and if I could, I would do this multiple times on the next trip to Costa Rica!

Awesome rafting experience! If you’re looking to do rafting in this area I’d suggest to go here. The guides were fun and very talented plus the river was beautiful and rapids were intense and exhilarating! Best rafting experience I have had. Thank you!

Roy the owner really goes above and beyond. My motorbike broke down and he drove 2 hours out of his night to meet me and fix the problem. I will definitely be calling him next time we are in costa rica. Super reliable and honest guy, this is what costa rica is all about!!!

An adventure from start to finish. 5 of us did whitewater rafting on the Naranjo River. Two people in one raft and three in the other (plus a guide in each). Also an additional raft with us for safety. We received great instructions beforehand and the guide was awesome in the raft. The rapids were primarily level III and they were fast and fun. There was a photographer that got incredible pictures. We paid extra for the pictures at the end, but very well worth it. This was a bucket list item for me and I'd go again in a heartbeat. I'd highly recommend Tico Loco Adventures!

Had an amazing time rafting today with Dylan and Gregory. They really know just where to steer you for the maximum excitement!

It rained whilst we were going which only made the water faster and the trip more exhilarating.

Would recommend. 10/10

This was the highlight of our trip! We had a fabulous experience with Gregory and Romaine on the Naranjo River. Gregory had us laughing in the van and he and Romaine pointed out all kinds of cool things on the way to the River. At the river, Romaine guided us through the property and pointed out herbs, citronella, leaves that made tattoos and henna! It was fascinating! Then, on the river, Gregory gave us quite the ride! My family has rafted before so Gregory made sure we had the wildest ride. He is so much fun and embodies Pura Vida! Can't recommend them more highly!

We went on a morning white water rafting trip. The rapids were a 3-4 on the Naranjo River. Only one member of our family had rafted before. Our guide JJ was amazing! Turns out that he and his twin brother are part of the Costa Rican white water rafting team. We were in good hands. JJ was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of Costa Rican history when we weren't in the rapids.

Rain 14 hours the night before made for a great white water trip the next day. Transportation was easy for our private group of 5. Our guide Christopher was personable, informative and excellent at reading the water. I’m glad we came during the rainy season, bigger boat and bigger water.

100% recommended. Best river rafting adventure ever!

Those guides are top notch and have competed on Costa Rica national team. There is only 3 stop shops that can take you through these rapids on the West coast, and Tico Loco is one of them.
Pure adrenaline!!!
