    This was without a doubt the best adventure of our trip. Everything we did was fun in Costa Rica, but this was an adventure. Our guides were awesome, MAX was a superhero on the raft. I give this a 10 star.

    Favorite part of our trip to Costa Rica!!! Fun rapids without being too dangerous. We saw an iguana and sloth along the shore. They take you to a delicious organic farm for authentic CR cuisine after the rafting trip. It was incredible. Highly recommend with amazing staff!!!

    The adventure was perfect. Donnet was the worst guide we ever had in any excursions anywhere.

    A challenging, fun, not dangerous rafting trip. The guides were great. The river awesome. Pineapple is sweet and the lunch home made. A great day and the highlight of our Costa Rica Trip.

    Great Experience!!! Our tour, took us down the Sarapiqui River. The river was dangerously beautiful. The rapids were swift and water was cool. There were many great views and guide gave us opportunities for pictures. We had a nice break, which included very fresh and juicy fruit. Our driver kept us informed of stops and breaks. It was a very safe and organized trip.
