    Unfortunately, WAVE Rafting didn't warn us the river was unexpectedly high, the flooring was ripped, one of the benches was not attached to the side. We were told we were not told about the high water level, because it would require WAVE Rafting to refund our money or reschedule us on a different river. The unexpectedly high water caused our boat, six rafters, and the boat behind us, of five rafters, to be completely thrown out of the boat and required one of our rafters to visit a doctor.

    My wife and I had an amazing experience with this team. As soon as we were picked up at our hotel I knew we were going to have a great time. Romel and his team are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. For this tour, we started the day with a chocolate tour which included some history and taste testing (yum!!). The rest of the day was on the water with Mario, the best river guide! This was an awesome rafting trip and included some water jumps, swimming, and an AMAZING lunch. If you are interested in white water rafting in Costa Rica, this team is the best!

    We had such a great time doing this tour! The chocolate tour was at Rainforest Chocolate Your and Kevin was our tour guide. He was fantastic at explaining everything and we are all the chocolate we could ever want! Then, the bus took us to the Wave Expeditions Rafting office and we were able to purchase some water shoes before our rafting trip. Everything went smoothly thanks to Jairo, Mario, and Horacio. This was our first time rafting, but we never felt nervous and had so much fun! We are ready for class IV rapids next time! They even provided cold drinks and cervezas and watermelon and pineapple. Lunch afterwards was delicious and we were able to try sugarcane. This was easily our favorite and most well rounded tour of our trip and would wholeheartedly recommend to everyone going to La Fortuna. Thank you again!

    We had a 1st time river rafter with us so we opted for the class ll-lll trip. Worried it was going to be a little slow and basic, I was pleasantly surprised the class lll part was enough work and fun while the class ll part gave time to chill and enjoy the scenery. Jorge our guide was funny and knowledgeable and just when it seemed like our day was over, we were taken to an organic farm/restaurant where we were treated to a delicious buffet and an overview of Costa Rican coffee, sugar cane juicing, and a sampling of the sugar cane based local spirits. Turned out to be a full day of fun. Highly recommend.

    This tour group is super concerned about your safety. The trip starts off with serious rapids which make you feel like you will be thrown from the boat. The guides are so good that you never feel unsafe. This tour company is first class. Our guide Carlos was wonderful. My daughter who is 11 was nervous and never did this before and he made us feel great. Dias ran our bus group and also did a great job with planning the day and keeping us entertained.
