Paid for myself and niece for a tour and received nothing from the company. I reached out to Damian, and he confirmed that his business partner would be taking us and sent me his contact information. Called his business partner Melvin, and he goes well I did not get an email to take you and I just did a bike ride. I am at home and so I am not coming. That is NO way to conduct business just blow off 200 bucks. I called Damian back and he goes I am calling him now and still no callback. If you book this adventure, make sure to pay with PayPal so you can get your money back. This was just horrible representation of your company.

Thank you for your comment. We are very sorry that we were not able to find a alternative time or date to take you and your niece on the tour you booked. When we were talking on the phone you hung up on us so we were unable to continue our conversation. We have fully refunded your $200. Once again, sorry for any inconvenience we caused to your vacation plans.

Mel and his crew were awesome. The water was high and one of our kids was too small to do the main part of the river, so Mel went out of his way to drive one parent with the little one down to a halfway point and hike with them to a spot where the boat could pick them up, so everyone could at least do some part of the route. Our boat captain Raul was super enthusiastic, entertaining, great with the kids, and a very knowledgeable, strong paddler. The entire experience with CRTA was positive and fun from start to finish. Highly recommend these guys.

We had an excellent time on the hot springs tour — so much so that our tour guide even lost track of time a little. We learned a ton about the governmental and natural history of the country, enjoyed conversation over delicious fresh fruit snacks and juice, and even stopped on the way back for the best ceviche we ate on our whole trip in Costa Rica. 10/10.

Wonderful trip and with two great guides, Damian and Anthony. They were a great duo because Damian ran the business side of the trip and Anthony is a native who knows a lot about the land and culture. All 11 of us (ages 5 to 65) enjoyed the trip. Some of the more adventurous people tried the natural slides in the river, abs we all enjoyed the hot springs and fresh fruit snack. Over all it was wonderful, and it was enjoyable to be off the beaten path. My one suggestion is to wear a life vest for the slides. Damian had them available but did not require people to wear them.
