    Best Team Bonding Ever!!!
    Meon_G, July 2022
    It's a bit overwhelming to write about this adventure because it was all so good! We were a group of software developers and designers who have been working remote (and hadn't really met each other) since 2020. So this was our first experience as a team with a challenge that wasn't software-related... Gummi, our driver, was lovely. The roads were wild and I can't believe he navigated the terrain like he did. I think he even helped us climb back up to the bus after our first waterfall, which was just really sweet. The guides (Alejandro, Matt, Ismael) were all fantastic! They were attentive and gave us a great explanation of how they check the waterfalls for safety. We all felt like we were in safe hands even when we felt anxious or scared. It also spoke volumes that they wanted to make sure other people were safely jumping in the area. It was cool and comforting to see the guides do their own dives and jumps at the end of each waterfall, too. Some of us were afraid of heights and some of us didn't know we were terrified until we were getting ready to jump, so it was helpful to see them handle the waterfalls. During the bus rides in between waterfalls, they used the time well and were able to give us a richer history of Costa Rica. We hadn't quite received that on any other tour we booked. And we had the best lunch we had had during the entire trip at the tilapia farm. Thank you! The only hiccup we had was Mother Nature. It rained A LOT the night before we were originally scheduled to do this excursion. We had to reschedule our tour to the following day, but it worked out. We ended up doing the waterfall adventure on our last day in Costa Rica... It proved to be just what we needed to go home with full hearts and beautiful memories. If we're ever in Quepos again, we're coming back! And if you want a life-changing experience in all of the best ways, this is the adventure for you!
    Great tour

    Our tour guides were all amazing—fun, energetic and knowledgeable. Though you can go to these places on your own, I never would have looked at this spots (especially the waterfall slide and the 35 ft jump) and thought they would be a good spot for a slide or jumping. They demonstrated how to do things safely and have fun. Definitely recommend. Also the food at the tilapia farm was delicious.
    Solo Traveler - Great Tour

    The night before my tour it rained pretty heavily but the morning of the tour the sky cleared and the clouds parted and it was a beautiful day. The other people on my tour canceled and luckily for me the tour company decided to take me out on my own. Many times they have a minimum and won’t take out just one solo traveler so that was already great. The guides, Ismael and Tommy, were amazing. They were very knowledgeable and made the tour safe and fun. They also did a great job taking photos and keeping me engaged. I recommend this tour company and this specific tour.
    Best day in Costa Rica!

    Our all-day waterfall adventure with Andres, Ismael, Wesley (aka paparazzi), Reuben, and Gumi ( our driver) was a day we will never forget! We have had many wonderful tour guides and adventures here in Costa Rica, but these guys are the BEST! Our family's age range is 53-15 and it was a perfect day for all of us. Some of the waterfalls require a bit more courage, but it was very thrilling to try something so adventurous! There were 2 other families in our tour group, with the youngest person being 6 years old. Even she jumped off the 8ft waterfall. The bus ride is entertaining and educational, with the guides telling funny stories, jokes, and teaching about Costa Rica. Safety is a priority which made us all feel much more at ease and comfortable trying the jumps. The pace of the day was well planned out with snacks and lunch at just the right time and ending the day with a relaxing visit to a beautiful beach. We would give this experience a 10/10 and recommend it to anyone feeling up for an adventure! Great job Paddle 9! We hope to see you again!
