    What a great experience we had rafting with Wave Expeditions. Momo was a hilarious and competent guide who made our experience with Wave Expeditions a great experience. I personally have rafted numerous rivers in North America but this was a first for several members of my family. The Balsa River is one of the cleanest and enjoyable rivers I have been on. Pura Vida!

    Highly recommend Wave! Our family of 5 (3 teens) did the II-III white water rafting out of Fortuna. The tour was well organized, pick up from hotel was right on time, instructors were a lot of fun, and the river was gorgeous. it was our first time so was a little nervous but instructors were total pros and felt very much in good hands. Can't remember the name of our instructor (Alfonso?) in our boat but he was super sweet, funny and made us work our butts off. :) Was fun. Beer at the end of rafting was a great touch too.

    Andres and his team were amazing from the ease of transportation and communication, to teaching us about Costa Rica, wildlife, industry and families. The white water rafting was perfect. The rapids were exciting and our 9 and 11 year old daughters loved it. The guide pointed out wildlife during the calmer moments and led us perfectly through the rapids. Lunch at the Monkey Park was equally enjoyable. The reserve was beautiful and the lunch was one of the best we had in Costa Rica. The owners/staff were so kind and even taught my husband how to make fried plantains. If we make it back that way, we'll definitely do this trip again.

    Romel, the team leader of our excursion, explained everything we were going to do so well and in a really fun way. Our raft leader, Jason, made us feel very secure, and was very observant and communicative. Not only our raft leader made us feel secure, but there was always someone in a kayak following us, able to help in case someone fell, as well as the other raft leaders. During the water rafting we took a break to eat fruit (very yummy) and to go in the water. After the water rafting there was a site to change clothes or take a shower if necessary. At the end of the rafting they took us to eat and the food was delicious.

    I was afraid for being my first time water rafting, but it was totally amazing, and I was able to enjoy it even more by feeling so secure. I would totally repeat the experience with Jacamar Tours.

    Thank you to Shiva, and Kali i had the best experience. Everyone is so nice and has such great knowledge of the environment. We went to the white waters rapids which by far my best experience thank you to Carlos our Raft guide. Then we went to the safari experience which was great we saw monkeys, sloths, Tucans, owls, etc.. Alot in general. We also did a zip line experience which was great. They were very supportive, helpful especially when your scared. Overall they had made my trip so fun and great. I will totally tell you to go best place ever.

    We had a great time river rafting other than the fact that we were told upon booking online that we only need our bathingsuits, towels, water shoes if we had them. I told the lady we didn't have water shoes and she said no problem. They pick us up and we get to their office and were told we can't do the tour unless we buy the water shoes at the store next store which we're $9 a pair. Then we weren't told we were going to be a full out hike through the jungle to get to the river. We had a 20 min. uphill hike on the way back also all while hauling our tubes to and from. The river tubing itself was only 1km and were only in the water for 45 mins. The rapids were really rough and we all flipped over at least once. We told the guy at the front desk we didn't have change and were paying in $. He said after the tour he'll take us to their office downtown to pay in dollars. After the tubing we get back to their office and the guy tells me we can no longer get change in $ only in colones. In the end they had to take us downtown to a bank to change money and played games the entire time. Tubing was great but don't recommend the shady business.

    Came to Costa Rica on a school trip, and white water rafting was by far my favorite activity. The route was beautiful, the guides were super fun and knew so much about the plants and animals surrounding the river, and Piqui the dog is the most awesome little guy ever! Highly recommend!
