While in Costa Rica in February, our friends talked us into going White-water rafting. This was not something that was on my bucket-list but didn't want to be a spoil-sport, so we agreed. (My husband and I are in our 50's). We booked our tour through Hotelbeds in our resort (Allegro Papagayo) after watching a video their Rep, Marvin, had shown us! It was everything he promised. We had so much fun! Colon was our guide/captain on the raft and he was absolutely amazing. He was competent, friendly, informative, knowledgeable and full of fun. We could not have had someone better accompany us. The rafting was a combination of floating along calm waters while enjoying the view, and braving rapids, beginning with small ones and working up to the larger, more challenging ones, including a 12-foot drop....which was AWESOME!! We spent about 3 hours on the water, enjoying nature, talking, laughing, splashing, and rowing. Upon completion of the rafting, we had drinks and snacks and then were driven back to the restaurant in the truck.
We had worked up an appetite and a thirst by this point, and lunch did not disappoint us. We had ordered the fish and it was absolutely delicious! It included: a glass of lemonade, a salad, fish (tilapia), rice, vegetables, beans, and ice cream for dessert.
In addition, we purchased the CD of pictures that was made for us of the rafting trip. We will enjoy looking at those pictures and keeping the memories alive for many years to come.
Thanks Colon and R.C.R. for a fantastic day, and to the restaurant for a scrumptious meal!
If you are considering doing this tour, don't hesitate. It is well worth it!
