We purchased this trip on living social but people with all different budgets can turn this dream into a reality. This trip was a true adventure. We went white water rafting in class III-IV rapids on Balsa River, waterfall rappelling, ATVing, canopy zip lining, toured an organic farm, visited hot springs and went on a volcano trek. Roger and his professional staff at Costa Rica Descents helped to make our first adventure experience a wonderful one. It was beyond our expectations! All of the guides are extremely knowledgable and go the extra mile to make sure you are having a great time. The tour guides always had smiles on their faces and it's evident that they all love what they do. I highly recommend the professional staff at Costa Rica descents if you need help planning a vacation to Costa Rica or for the BEST Class II-V water rafting adventure. PURA VIDA!

Me and 3 more amigas went through the lvl4-3 rafting, it was thrilling fun and takes some effort (in a good way)
Its a rough rocky narrow river, especialy when the flow is strong during the rainy season
After the rafting they took us to lunch in a local farm, it was a decent meal with a short tour in the farm afterwards
Cost: 75$ in town (la fortuna)

Traveled with a group of 4 late June to La Fortuna area. Stumbled into the Costa Rica Descents office to inquire about some white water rafting one night and met Sofia.. I regret booking a few tours ahead of arriving in La Fortuna since this office made it so easy to do in person!

Sofia can literally book everything for you! She was so helpful and answered all of our questions. While we ultimately opted out of white water rafting, our group booked a day at Baldi hot springs, a boat tour of Cano Negro, and even taxis and shuttle buses around Costa Rica.

In the future, Sofia will definitely be our go to person in La Fortuna. She really took the time to explain all of our options, suggest activities we hadn't even thought of, and even recommended a Soda we ate at every single day!

Genuine people who truly wanted our group to leave CR happy.

My friend and I are physically restricted from the extreme attractions that this great company is known for. We stayed for 3 weeks in April and Roger along with the entire staff made our trip a very positive experience. They helped us navigate the area in a knowledgeable and friendly way.
Check out the sustainable farm tour, it's amazing. Thanks to all at Costa Rican Descents for your hospitality.

Our group of 17 traveled to La Fortuna from June 30th to July 6th on the Living Social deal with Costa Rica Descents. What an amazing trip!! Roger, Sophia, Danny, Jose, Walter, Dorian, Esteban along with everyone else were extremely helpful, informative and wonderful. The Class III, IV and V rafting adventure was stupendous. We were in great hands with Hawkson as our guide. We thought we were doing most of the rowing but looking back at the pictures Hawkson had his hands full!!! Safety is first and foremost at Costa Rica Descents. Not once did we feel that our lives were in danger. We trekked the Arenal Volcano with my 75 year old mother. Our guide, Walter, was very patient with all of us. What a beautiful country!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
