“Very good service and fun experience”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

Amigos del Rio has trained guides and they know how to entertain. Me and my friend did the white water rafting at the naranjo river. It was great fun and I felt safe. One guide was with us (6 unexperienced people) in the boat and there was one more guide in a kayak near by all the time. The tour was half a day and they gave us breakfast and lunch. I wish I knew costa rican eat rice with beans for breakfast, because I did not eat it and I was hungry for a few hours. They give you a snack in the middle of the adventure, you actually stop and rest for a few minutes on the side of the river. They also teach you about different plants and animals before getting to the river. It was the most fun experience in Costa Rica.

“If you are looking for an adventure while in Costa Rica - you will not be disappointed with Amigos Del Rio.”
Reviewed May 7, 2010

If you are looking for an adventure while in Costa Rica - you will not be disappointed with Amigos Del Rio. My husband and I recently visited Costa Rica and chose Amigos Del Rio for 2 adventures; “The Adventure Trip” and White Water Rafting.

From the moment we were picked up to the time we finished they treated us as if we had been friends for years. Each trip began with a little education on their country, their culture and the sights we were about to experience that day. It was clear that everyone at Amigos Del Rio takes great pride in their jobs and their country.

“The Adventure Trip” was amazing. We rappelled down cliffs, through waterfalls, zip-lined through the canopy, hiked the Jungle, took a Humvee through the mountain. We had a blast and saw the most amazing sights. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a true taste of Costa Rica.

Next we signed up for White Water Rafting. Again, they did not disappoint, I may have seen the most beautiful sights I will ever see on this adventure.

Fabian was our head guide for both trips and he was fantastic. He’s funny, knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make sure everyone has a wonderful experience. The rest of the crew was great too!

We can’t wait to come back and do this again.

“Great time white water rafting with Amigos del Rio”
Reviewed April 11, 2010

While in Costa Rica we decided to go white water rafting with Amigos del Rio down the Savegre River. We were not disappointed. Upon arrival, we had a delicious breakfast and then we loaded up in the school bus to head up the mountain. Along the way, the guides would jump off the bus and show us the native plants in the area and their uses…what a learning experience. Once at the destination, we were given instructions, helmets, paddles and life vests and we were on our way. What a blast! It was probably a class II to III, perfect for our family. We took a break for lunch, stopped at a waterfall and then continued down river. What a great day we had!
