We had the half day class 4 Rapids on the naranjo river. It was totally awesome! Our guide, John, was fantastic and was very clear in his instructions, knew the course well, and kept composure and regained control when we got into a bit of trouble in the water. You'll definitely be exhausted after the course so bring a change... More

Originally we tried to book the El Chorro section of the river for more excitement however it was not open. So we decided to do the Savegre river part anyway. I was told this tour would last four hours so we made plans for the afternoon. Then we arrived at the office and they said we had lunch, then realized... More

Good afternoon Emily. I want to apologize for your experience with my company on the Savegre River and for the fact that you feel you were misinformed as to the length of the tour.

Went on this tour with my family (kids 17, 20 & 22). After ziplining, repelling down waterfalls, hiking volcanoes and rafting class 3/4 rapids, I was worried this tour was going to be a let down. I was wrong! To our surprise it was quite a bit more than a lazy river. Had some nice restful floats down the river... More

Our family took the Savegre River tour, and it was the most fun we had on a 9 day trip to Costa Rica. As a previous reviewer noted, it was a bit disorganized, and we had a bit of a wait while they brought some folks from a hotel, but once we got on the road, the employees were all... More

I had never been white water rafting before and it was a must do in Costa Rica. The guides were a ton of fun, yet made us feel very safe. We opted for the 3/4 day adventure because we were on the move and it includes everything except for the lunch once the rafting is complete. You should not be... More

Don't let the title scare you away- this company is excellent. They made the rafting experience great, and the guides they employ (all of whom speak English) are fun and experienced. Their shuttle bus reduced the amount of bumps we received during the sometimes harrowing drive to the start point. However, our excursion took longer than it should have. We... More

We had a really fun trip with H2O . We did a half day trip for $70 each which was level 2-3. We also paid $10 each for photos. Other companies were offering cheaper prices but we were told that they wouldn't have sufficient insurance protection in case of an accident so decided to go with H2O. The guide Alverdo... More

Our half-day trip began with a pick-up from our Airbnb, and a short drive to the shop for paperwork. All the guides were friendly and full of lots of information. Once we got to the river drop off spot we got outfitted in helmets, PFDs, and paddles. Fun and safety, hand in hand. Durman, our guide, was great! He kept... More
