This company was a class act!!! We were treated to breakfast before leaving to the river. During the hour trip, Ruper, kept us entertained and educated us about the area. Our raft guide, Hiro, was amazing as well. He guided us through t rapids, educated us on the area, and was a great guy! When we returned to the restaurant, we were treated with a delicious lunch. I definitely recommend this excursion

Awesome trip.

Pick up was prompt, about an hour drive to a road side cafe for a typical Tico breakfast which was great. Met the rest of the group there to head toward the river. The advertisement leaves out the hour plus dirt road climb to the launch site but we saw a lot and our guide kept us informed about the surrounding country side, so it was ok too. We had four full rafts, a safety kayak, and a photographer. The river runs swift and rapids run too often to have your own photo shooting opportunities. The digital photos and video they sell at the end were actually an ok price and very good. I think our guide was at first disappointed he had an older group but we warmed up to each other and it was a great trip. Jira stopped us often to see animals and birds and we enjoyed his narration. He was very skilled. Having rafted a half dozen rivers in the US, I could tell he was hitting the spots he wanted to and took us through the best spots in the rapids. The river itself did not disappoint. Of course the season and the rain level makes a difference but what we got was great. Plenty of class 2 and 3 action with great spacing. Not really any slow spots, just a couple of relaxing places to hop in and float with the boats. Lost track exactly but think we were on the water for an hour fifteen or so. I’ve done much longer trips to only get what we got in that time though. We were very happy with the river action and our guide. When we egressed there was a snack of fresh fruit we ate while the crew loaded the rafts. A much shorter trip back to the cafe where I had great mahi mahi and sides which like breakfast was included. We purchased our photos and took our hour plus ride back to Jaco’. So picked up at 0745 and got back about 1545. Great day. Would do it again for sure.
Awful tour guide : great excursion
Kimberly_T, Aug 2023
Beautiful views and great rafting. Our stocky tour guide with the buzz cut ( not worth remembering his name) was awful. Screamed at my daughter during the introduction and throughout the excursion and made condescending remarks throughout our trip . He would splash us multiple times ( 1st 5 times were funny) while on the relaxing / scenic parts of the cruise. Even after mentioning we would prefer to get splashed with the real rapids, he continued to splash us throughout the excursion. Extremely annoying. I’m a 55 year old woman who can climb just fine. However, offering a hand to climb into the truck would have been courteous. Instead they sat in the truck with their headphones on. Go on this excursion , but ask for the long haired tour guide. You’ll know who he is because he was the only one to welcome the guests with a hello or hola.

Great rafting experience!
Stefanie_G, July 2023
Our party of 9, ranging from 12-81, had a great day rafting down the river!! The scenery was beautiful and the guides were friendly and professional. Wonderful way to spend the day!
So much fun and very safe!
Monica_M, June 2023
What a fun and exciting activity to do while in Costa Rica! I was worried about taking my 8 yo, but once we got in the raft it was so safe and I didn’t worry at all during the the rafting. Jairo, our guide was awesome and made us feel safe and showed us a great time! I would definitely do it again. This was my husbands fav activity we did several (ziplining, ATV riding, and waterfall rappelling).
One of the best ways to spend a day in Costa Rica.
Bruce_R, Apr 2023
The guide (Mario) was excellent. Good river guide and very personable. The ride up the valley to the put in was incredibly beautiful.
Tons on fun
Michael_H, Feb 2023
Orlando was the best guide for our rafting trip we would highly recommend tucan tours 5 stars all the way
Hold your breath before each rapid
Kimberley_B, July 2022
The guides were funny, polite and professional. All 6 of us had loads of fun! Although no one in our group fell out we all got thoroughly wet!
Awesome !!!!
Salvador_G, July 2022
Having rafted in California this experience was just as exhilarating but just add beauty and 5 stars
First Class and a terrific value.

Tucanes Tours has customer treatment down. Pedro picked us up at our door in a spacious, comfortable, luxury van and brought us 90 minutes south from Jaco Beach to a wonderful little cafe where we enjoyed a balanced, light breakfast. On the way to the drop in spot our guide, Marco, pointed out the diversity of Costa Rica's plants, economy, and common aspects of life in CR. I really enjoyed this aspect of the trip. The water and rafting experience were idyllic (mid-February)--we especially liked the interactions with the other rafters and guides of other boats (Nicholas). Our rafting was interrupted for a short period where we ventured off to take in an impressive water fall then we finished up with fresh fruit and liquids. A short trip back for lunch and then doorstop service from Pedro. This was the highlight of our trip--pre-teen and teenage kids loved it!
5 Star Tour. Great Company to use!
Laird_L, Jan 2022
We had a great time with Tucane Tours. They kept us informed on Costa Rica during the drive from Jaco. Breakfast was great. Then we had a fun drive up to the launch point. Guides were very informative We had a quick safety talk and a practice run getting us plenty wet and ready for the day. We had so much fun the whole day with our guides. Our tour ended up being a big inside joke with the guides as we searched for Aussie along our way. That’s just an indication of how well they did on the overall experience - have fun with your guides and the whole day is a better experience! Super Mario had a fantastic fruit spread for us and then we still had a lunch awaiting
Excellent excursion with Orlando!
nybertrand, Jan 2022
Excellent excursion! Orlando was the best guide ever, ensured our safety (1st time rafting) while guaranteeing the most fun from start to finish. Because we had a great time, we spent the extra $$ for photos and videos. Not the best hotel pick-up/drop-off, which is why this isn’t rated 5 stars.
Amazing experience! Loved...
Jennifer_d, Dec 2021
Amazing experience! Loved our tour guide Nicholas! Would recommend to anyone!! They explain all your surrounding and answer any questions you have. They know the river like the back of their hands and have many years of experience!
Costa Rican wonderful experience
James_S, July 2021
Nicholas was a great guide. Wonderful experience seeing Costa Rican nature on the way to the drop in point. The rafting was fun and we plan to do it again with Tucanes Tours again. Breakfast and lunch was wonderful as well.
Don’t miss out it’s so worth it
Michelle_P, June 2021
We were beginners and the trip was perfect for us so much fun - rapids were perfect and only one person fell in but we quickly did a rescue that they taught us and he was back in the raft in seconds!
David_C, June 2021
I have to admit that I was very hesitant to take my eight and nine year old girls on this rafting adventure….but the moment the boat hit the water I felt comfortable. The guides were amazing, they made you feel very safe and it was very obvious that they knew exactly what they were doing. My kids loved it! We loved it! Mario made it extra special. He made my kids feel calm and made the trip extra fun. He knew all about the local fruits and plants and taught us a lot. DO THIS ADVENTURE!!!! Mario if you see this, our email is Dlchavez23@gmail.com. Would love to see you in Italy!!
Surprisingly awesome!
Betty_B, June 2021
Our guides, Erick and Frances were amazing. Mario our driver was the best. Excellent food all day. A great experience to do in Costa Rica.
Cecily_S, Mar 2021
Shout out to the whole team especially Johnathan and Super Mario!! My family and I enjoyed the water rafting experience, we had so much fun. See you guys again in August 2021
