    Wonderful full day experience for our entire family. Highly recommend both the atv and rafting. Everything was smooth from pick up to drop off. Thank you!

    My family and I had an absolute blast on the combo trip of ATV and Rafting (with Wave Expeditions). The ATV trip had a beautiful route through the roads beside the volcano, and a fun, challenging terrain down to a waterfall and river. I would highly recommend adding the picture deal for $30 dollars. A guide follows the group and takes pictures at different spots throughout the route with a professional camera and ensures you and your fam have super cute in-action pics. Now onto the rafting trip. Bottom line: It was an absolute blast!!! The rafting guides are such a ball. They are goofy and fun and love to interact with their guests. The river in itself is one of the best rivers my family and I have been to. The rapids were challenging, but in the best way. Definitely expect to get wet. Additionally, the traditional Costa Rican lunch that was included was so delicious - without a doubt the most authentic costa rican food we had on our trip. Shoutout to Gerald and Alonso who made our rafting tour one to remember.

    An incredible experience! The first 5 minutes is intense but exhilarating and helps you feel very confident about the safety of the raft and that the instructor (we had the incredible Pablo) is in total control. A perfect mix of rough water and calm stretches to take in the wildlife. Best activity during 2 weeks in Costa Rica and that’s saying something!

    Mario was our guide, and he was fantastic. Great person to have on the water with our group! Gerald was in charge of pick up and was great too!

    The atv tour was okay. We didn’t feel like it was very scenic or fun. Too much time was spent on roads, we wanted more off roading. The local tribe we got to meet was interesting. They presented some history and we tried their homemade wine. We also got a chance to shoot a bow and spear. I say spear because it was a large arrow. The art was beautiful. The white water rafting tour was fun! The tour guides were fun! Thank you Jorge for getting us wet! We got to see a lot of wildlife! Thank you for letting us ride the Bull! The fruit and the lunch with the moonshine was delicious! Thanks Jorge and Flaco!

    I was incredibly scared to rafting to the point that I even cried while getting on the raft. Sivianny who was my instructor looked at me and asked if I was ok, and I replied that I was not and was really scared. He then told me that everything was going to be ok and he assured me that if anything would happens, he would take care of me. I was so scared starting but he instructed me so well that the fear faded away and I can honestly say it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Im so greatfull for the team and the experience but I’m especially greatfull for my instructor, his grace and his experience made everything so much better! Super awesome dude 🇨🇷🤍

    Awesome crew and lots of fun! Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us at ease. Highly recommend for anyone in the area.

    ATV ride was disappointing. We ATV’d down the main road, not a trail, to the observation point (1/2 way) and turned around. They only took us down a muddy trail when a person in our group complained (I think it was the tour guides friend that let us use their land to ATV). Then they didn’t tell us to lift our legs going over water and our daughter burned her leg badly. Not happy. But the rest of the trip was amazing! Rafting was fun-good for beginners. Then the lunch at the farm was amazing! Highly recommend rafting without the ATV.
