Costa Rica Descents, La Fortuna Reviews

  • The best! I've been rafting 3 times in my life and this was by far the best experience yet! The guides were very skilled and friendly. They knew a lot about the local plants and animals. They all spoke English well and made sure everyone was having fun. Our group had a blast! The lunch afterward was delicious, and I loved touring their farm. I'll tell everyone I know about this awesome place!

  • It was an amazing experience for a first time rafter like me. They took extra care and made sure that I don't get scared. The guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable both about the water as well as about the fauna and Flora. Having vegetarian options in lunch was great, farm visit and especially to get to know so many varieties of herbs was amazing! I definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to try rafting, they are great people! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

  • Top! We had a wonderful day with the guys from Costa Rica Descents. Orlando did a nice job right from the beginning with some nice stories & entertainment and JosĂ© guided us through and into the rapids with his knowledge and josh. Also worth to mention is the sustainability concept they go for. From what we've seen they really take care of their nature and encourage everyone to do so as well. The food we had with them was one of the best in Costa Rica at all. Rice & beans (and more!) at its best! đź‘Ť Thumbs up, guys! Keep it up!

  • I was kinda dragged into this event because my Husband was dying to go, but it was (by far) the best activity we participated in for our whole trip! It was so much fun and the guides were amazing! Especially Warner and Orlando! I loved the fact that it was a family based business and after an awesome rafting experience they take you back to their farm and feed you a very tasty meal and give you a tour of their farm! I definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!

  • Great, funny and knowledgeable guides Jose and Elvis ensured to make a safe yet super fun experience for everyone! Not only the rafting was great, the lunch and educational tour at finca Don Juan was a very nice addition to the tour. Would definitely recommend. It was overall an awesome experience!
