The folks at Desafio did a great job of creating an adventure that I won't forget. We rafted on the Sarapiqui which has a 3-4 rating. We were on the river for about 2- 2 1/2 hours (including a break midway). The rapids never seemed to end but I was able to enjoy the scenery along the way as well. Our raftsman, Jose, did an excellent job of balancing adrenaline and safety. You will get drenched and love every minute of it.
I rafted on a 2-3 rated river a couple of years ago, also in Costa Rica, but it was nothing like this. A young couple on our raft who love these type of activities said that it was great by their standards too.
The Desafio crew includes a kayak riding cameraman. You can buy a DVD with pictures of your adventure for $30. I know this sounds like it could be cheesy but it really is worth it. There is no way that you can take any pictures on this trip. The cameraman did an excellent job. Our DVD has over 170 high quality pictures of just our raft, as well as some wild-life shots to round out the purchase. I start laughing every time I start looking at the pictures.
