Great Day on the Savegre
Annalee_O, Feb 2024
I went with my husband, daughter (7) and mom (71) on a rafting trip with Amigos del Rio on the Savegre River. We all had a blast! My daughter was feeling a bit scared beforehand, but after the first rapid, she really started enjoying herself. Our guide Kenneth and the rest of the team made us feel very comfortable and safe on the river. It was perfectly thrilling for all of us Without being boring. The scenery, especially the waterfall was magnificent. The ride to the river is long, slow, and bumpy. The truck was very comfortable to ride in, and we didn’t mind the journey, but if you’re not up for the 1.5 hours (30 mins on paved, 60 mins on dirt) in the car, you might pass. Tips: - bring dry bag you can connect to yourself if you want to have your phone/camera with you.

This was my absolute favorite of all the tours I did. The crew was very attentive and Aldo had a great report with each other which was great to watch. The rafting was great fun, there were a few class 3. There were people of all ages. Loved jumping in the river and going under the waterfall. I’ve been river rafting several times, the crew was thorough in their safety overview. Highly recommend it. Our tour guide was Jesus. The only thing I would say is don’t bring anything with you, not even your phone, you won’t need any of it.
Refreshing day on the water

We had a good time even though my husband fell in twice. The guide and another passenger pulled him in pretty quickly both times. We're glad he didn't get seriously hurt.
Great Experience but bad communication
Franziska_T, Jan 2024
Rafting itself was great, the communication about the organization terrible. We came to the office, checked in and had lunch immediately. After that no one told us about how we will get to the place of the rafting, how long it takes to get there and much more. The guides of the rafting were nice, but they seemed only to be interested in the money. Almost the whole time they were talking and laughing with each other which was annoying. The experience itself was great and I felt also safe during the whole trip. But all in all me and my friend felt not very welcomed.
Perfect adventure
Kimberly_M, Jan 2024
Uyllises was a fantastic river guide. We felt safe the entire time. So much fun!! David was our driver and he was great too. Highly recommend!!
Excellent Rafting Trip!!
Omer_S, Jan 2024
Fantastic time!! Gorgeous scenery. The rapids were on the chill side, so the vibe was more relaxing with some thrills. Pretty waterfall stop. The best part was definitely our guide Andres who was very knowledgeable about the area, taught us a lot about Costa Rica, and kept a bright and upbeat spirit throughout our trip! And “river surfing” was great as well. Overall, if you are a novice rafter this is perfect and you should do it. If you are experienced, you will still have a good time, but may want to look for higher class level rapids for that fear/rush. Would definitely stick with Amigos del rio though, they were great!!
great experience by professional team

A Great ezperience from beginning to end . the offfice staff was responsive in changing dates for this trip and sending meeting location. Thank you!! We were welcomed upon arrival and Kenneth shared the plan for parking,, Wi-Fi password and nice waiting areas as we had arrived early by rental car. The Izumi truck van was comfortable and cold AC for the trip to rafting. Our guide riding shotgun was Jesus. He was positive with great sense of humor and spoke English very well. As I am an Arborist. I was very impressed with Jesus’s education on the Date Palm plantations we passed enroute. The crew worked as a team upon arrival to get Oars, helmets and vests distributed. The four or us were teamed with a young couple from Switzerland and out Pilot was Louis. I cannot say enough about true expertise of Louis is training us and guiding us down the River. His Skill on the River may have been matched only by our driver in the Isuzu. His skill backing the truck and trailer up a slope for a bathroom break earned applause from the guests. The rapids were exhilarating and no one fell overboard. With consent from the rowing crew our Pilot Louis had us doing 360’s down one set of rapids and later in the trip we climbed a sloped rock and then the crew leaned back to backu us in the clear. Great move well executed thanks to Louis’s expertise!!! The coordination and logistics in getting us back to home base while a 2nd tour was departing was very well managed. Easier said than done! . lunch was simple yet very good. Many thanks to the entire team for a great experience! A success tour thanks to great execution by the entire team! muchos gracias!
Great time, but just know that it’s not six hours
Daniel_G, Aug 2023
We had a fantastic trip with the leaders, and a special thanks to Cristobal, who was in charge of our boat. Everything felt super safe and my kids, 13 and 10, had a great time and want to go whitewater rafting when we’re back in the US. One word of advice - the tour is listed as six hours but that’s a little misleading. It takes 1.5 hours by a truck (air conditioned) to reach the launch point, then you’re on the river for about a half hour, stop for a half hour or so at a nice waterfall and to eat a snack, then perhaps another 25 minutes on the river, then a 45 minute truck ride back to the meeting point and lunch. So all told the amount of time actually rafting is perhaps an hour, give or take 5-10 minutes. It’s a lot of fun, but not a six hour adventure.
Awesome Rafting on Rio Savegre
Denise_G, Aug 2023
Awesome trip with our guide Luis! He was very fun and provided some educational info along the journey. The ride to the river was about 1 hr 30 min from Manuel Antonio and very bumpy but well worth it!
Amazing experience. As a...

Amazing experience. As a first timer I felt like they prioritized safety. They are also very knowledgeable we learned so many different things the entire trip. They do a wonderful job and are very intentional about their business and do a wonderful job.

The guides were amazing! A lot of fun and great information about Costa Rica. Ulises was the perfect host down the river.
A fun adventure on the river!

Great Fun for everyone
tesaunders22, Apr 2023
This was a great activity. It was our 7 year olds first time and they loved it. Ucilises was our guide and he was fantastic. The river was ultimately pretty calm, and I think this was mostly if not entirely a level 2, but that was perfect for a child and first time. The guides were knowledgeable and fun. Lunch was really good and it was one of our best days. If you want more extreme, then you need to go on a different tour as this was pretty relaxed- so go for your skill level.
