I went to Costa Rica in February of 2020 and participated in the white water rafting adventure. It is now May, and the trip has not yet left my mind. Our guide, Carlos, was responsible for the positive experience I had. He seamlessly blended responsibility, fun, and kindness in order to ensure the happiness and safety of my whole group. We had an amazing time, thank you Carlos!

My friends and I had such a good time rafting. One of the highlights was our very experienced, sweet, guide, Carlos. He was very knowledgeable about the surroundings and also very encouraging. He made our rafting experience very enjoyable and memorable to say the least.

Having ziplined before, I was surprised by the antiquity of AdS's very basic harnesses and manual braking method. In the past, ziplines I've used required only that I hold onto handles until the auto-brake activated at the end of the line. (See photo #2 below.) Also, harnesses were padded in the waist and crotch areas. At AdS, the harnesses are just straps. I had to operate the "brake," which is a leather mit, by pulling down on the line at the end. (See photo 1)This put a lot of strain on my shoulder and arm. Prior to breaking I had to hold the mitt hand hehind my body and lightly above the line...while hurtling through space. The whole process is not easy. I and others came in too fast a couple of times, which meant a crash into the guide. Others came up short and had to pull themselves hand over hand to the platform. If you are strong and coordinated, you may do OK on this trip. If you have ziplined with modern equipment, be prepared for a more physically challenging ride with AdS. I am moderately strong and coordinated and did OK. I ended up with a sore shoulder and significant groin bruising and soreness from the harness straps. The zipline route is beautiful. Two of the guides were charming and helpful, and one was surly.

One of our best adventures EVER with Adrian “Queso” the able commander of our boat. We started with a very specific safety briefing before we left, which turned out to be essential to a successful trip. The first few rapids shot us into the midst of churning water then dropped us into deep troughs of boiling water. Very scary! Soon we realized that our guide, Adrian “Queso” knew exactly how much to tell us to paddle and how much to refrain from paddling. Turned out to be thrilling—one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done. We were in an “armada” of about 5 rubber rafts with 5 to 6 people in each. It was so, so, so much fun!

I never rafted before but i felt safe the whole trip. Wilson was a great guide to tell us about the wildlife next to the river. We had a pineapple as we made a short stop, this was really nice. For sure im recommending this for a excellent and safe rafting experience! Great work.
