If you are considering taking this adventure while on your trip to Costa Rica then just go ahead and book now. Trust me, nothing let us down about this part of our trip from the pickup at our Hotel in San Jose, the bilingual tour of the surrounding area on the trip there, the Costa Rican breakfast waiting on us when we arrived to their company headquarters, the guide (Fernando) on our raft, the lunch they prepared for us halfway down the river, the scenery of waterfalls pouring into the river from the rainforest, the over 200 pictures that was taken on the trip that I purchased for $20, and to top it all off I was taken to my next destination in LaFortuna that night. All that was $99 per person minus pictures we bought. Best deal in Costa Rica. I can't speak for the other rafting companies but I can say that Rios Tropicales won't disappoint. I would recommend this activity for anyone from teens to people in their 60's. We went at the end of the Dry Season so water levels were a little low but it was still packed with Class III, III+, and IV. I could only imagine the intensity during the Rainy Season but once again they are very safe in what they do, I thought more so than a lot of rafting companies I've been with in the US. One of the commands they had that I have never heard in the US while rafting is "Get Down"(meaning everyone squat down in the raft and hold on so no one falls out). I thought that was so funny because in the US if you fall down into the raft the guide is saying "Get up and paddle!!. Regardless of which they go overboard to make sure you are safe and have fun. Don't miss this opportunity.
