“Amazing excursion for people looking for pure adventure”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We did the adventure park 10-in-1 with ADR recently and it was excellent. Our main guide Alverro was absolutely excellent: very knowledgable and skilled with everything we're doing. Someone even scraped up his knee during the climb, and he was just very informative and educated with medical situations. Our party of six felt very safe and in good hands with the entire ADR staff. They were all super helpful and very nice.
This trip is definitely not for the faint hearted and a non-daring person but if this type of stuff is right up your alley... It's the best excursion you'll ever find. Perfect Costa Rican experience!!

“Way more fun than expected”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Don't be fooled - you are going to get SOAKED. And you will love every minute of it. Wear waterproof shoes, and come ready to paddle. The staff was excellent. All of the young river guides have a zest for the waters of Costa Rica. They were hilarious and very knowledgeable. I learned more than I have learned in a long time on the hour-long bus ride to the river. The river is exhilarating and totally worth it. It was my favorite "adventure" day.

“great fun”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We did the half day rafting trip and really enjoyed it. My wife had never been rafting and was nervous before the trip but she had a lot of fun. We got very wet, I was glad we left our cameras behind for this trip. Our raft was shared with another couple who were professional rafting guides from the US so we had no problems on the river. Most of the time you sit on the side of the raft. However sometimes you have to sit on the floor of the raft, which can be difficult for larger people or if you have bad knees.

“Amazing - soo much fun!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We did the white water rafting full-day trip.....Easily the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica! Fun from beginning to end!!! A not to be missed experience! There are many raft operators that run from Quepos but these guys are incredible! It was an amazing experience and they really run a thoroughly professional operation - safe, experienced and most of all - fun!!!! And the photos from the trip down the river were amazing - make sure you buy them! Thank you all so much!
