Totally worth it!

Best excursion we did in Costa Rica! We did go during their summer months so water was low but it was still so much fun! Such friendly staff. And also the meal the provided was probably the best meal we had in Costa Rica!
Fantastic experience

Adrenaline rush

Falling out of the raft along with our guide :-) Loved the 12 foot draft! Food was great also after rafting. This was the best excursion in Costa Rica.
Awesome day on the Tenorio River!

We had a fabulous time and our guide, Luis, was the best. He made it extra fun with his fun personality.
Exhilarating, joyful and safe - Thanks to our guide Wider!

This full day excursion is definitely worth it! The 7 mile ride down the river was incredibly fun, a lot of adrenaline, and a beautiful way to see more of Costa Rica. Our guide kept us safe and comfortable. This was my first time white water rafting and ill definitely be back! The rapids are class 3 and 4 and you will be smiling and holding on the whole time. Plus lunch was delicious!
Definitely recommend!

We loved this excursion! Our driver JJ was phenomenal, and all of the staff and guides were fun and helpful! Bryan was an excellent guide and made the trip memorable. A long drive, but worth it!

Rodrigo Rocks!!
Vaneza_M, July 2022
One of the highlights of our trip. It was our family of three first time water rafting. My daughter and I were a bit nervous but our guide was amazing!! Rodrigo made our experience very enjoyable, he was very knowledgeable. He is a great communicator and we had a blast!! Lunch was also delicious, i had fish tilapia. Food was tasty portion was a bit small but I did get my food towards the end of the line. Super fun, highly recommend.
The excursion what alot...

The excursion what alot of fun and adventurous. We ended with going to a place to eat after the activity.
Terrific time with "Terminator"!!
Jennifer_N, July 2022
This was an amazing trip! From pickup to dropoff, everything was run smoothly. Our guide "Terminator" was spectacular! He was entertaining, informative, personable and so fun as our guide. He gave us our money's worth on the 12 foot dropoff when we went down backwards (while still staying safe, I might add)! The staff were all friendly and professional. The meal at the end was perfect for our growling bellies, after all the paddling. Would highly recommend this trip.....worth the money. Ask for "Terminator" as your guide; you won't be disappointed.

Transportation to and from the hotel was excellent; Jose was knowledgeable and very friendly. Daniel, our guide, was fabulous, providing a fun and safe experience while also showing us some fascinating things along the river. It was even more fun and exciting than we had expected. The day ended with a tasty lunch and great pictures that were taken along the way that were very reasonably priced. All in all a fabulous day and we highly recommend this tour
Mario did a great job....
Jaime_L, June 2022
Mario did a great job. Can really tell that he knows the way around the rapids, and he even added in little details about trees and monkeys. Highly recommend, and we plan to do more in future. Felt like we were in very capable hands.
Depends on the guide. Trip was about him, not about us.
Peter_v, June 2022
It would have been a better trip if our guide the ‘terminator’ didn’t dunk us on the 2 big rapids. We did most of the rowing when other groups did almost none. We paid for photos but it was just us falling in the water. NOT one did we make it for a good thumbs up photo. This was for the guide having fun. Not about us. Also my wife got taken down when the guide flipped the raft onto her. She has many bruises and won’t forget about this… not observant or safe.
Simisola_O, May 2022

A great first time experience
Sarah_B, May 2022
We had a great time. Our guide Jason made sure we had a great experience since it was our first time. I would definitely do it again!!
Great day!
Nisse_R, Apr 2022
This was an excellent experience! The water was super low so it was mostly technical rafting with a couple big waves. It was really fun. Our guide, Fernando, was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the area. We even saw some monkeys!
