We did the 10 in 1 adventure that included a Land Rover ride through the jungle, zip lining, rappelling , via Ferrata, Tarzan swing, hiking, swimming beneath a waterfall and a delicious lunch. Our guides were great — so kind and fun!

This was the highlight of our trip. We did the zip lining at El santuario earlier in the week and this one was different. We enjoyed our guides and the experience as well. Great scenery and we can't wait to go back.

My son (14 years) and I went Sera Kayaking and Snorkeling with Amigos del Rio. We had a GREAT guide, Orlando. Orlando was knowledgable and courteous. I highly suggest using him as a guide.

If you need to completely avoid bumping, I'd skip any form of rafting. There will be bumps. Try kayaking instead! You can do ocean or mangrove kayaking in many parts of Costa Rica. No bumps, but you still get to be on the... More

Best rafting tour (4 Replies)
My wife and I will be heading to the Manuel Antonio area next week for our 10 year anniversary. We are looking to go on a rafting trip and need some advice on which guide service to go with. I've read some good reviews on Amigos del rio and H2O. Will probably do the savegre river tour. What are your recommendations?

Iguana Tours or Amigos del Rio? (8 Replies)
Does anyone recommend one of the other for rafting on the Savagre River?

Response fromMike A|
I have used Iguana Tours and they did a great job on their rafting tour. I have heard that Amigos del Rio are also very good but I have not used them.
