A must if you’re in Costa Rica

If you’re ever in Costa Rica, this is a must Our tour guide was awesome from beginning to end. We drove from San Jose to the meeting point, from there we left our car there and drove on the tour bus. From the moment we got to the rafting place, it was a go, no time wasting. Our tour guide made the trip so memorable with the history lessons and the jokes, it was simply a trip to remember. I’m not gonna lie to you, it’s a very active excursion, we had snacks in between, be prepared to be tired at the end but it’s worth it, the food at the end was incredible. Overall book it, it’s worth it.
Exhilarating! Prepare to get wet!

Don’t hesitate to book this activity. Value is very worth it. Firstly you have to arrange transportation going to and leaving Turrialba, but, once you get to their office; they will pick you up and drive you to the site. Very fun guides, Ariel and Fernando were fun and also very accommodating. They also took so many great pictures and there is no pressure to buy after. Dont lose your slippers! Good meal at the end.
Awesome rafting, stunning nature, great guide
Diederik_V, Nov 2023
The rafting was wild and amazing. Nature on the river was stunning. Our guide Fernando ensured an awesome experience by giving lots of information about wildlife and points of interest in the scenery. Furthermore, he was very competent in captaining the raft and giving instructions, making me feel quite safe. The food at the end of the tour was high quality.
Final day of trip.

Saved rafting with adrenalina until our last day. Correct decision. Fernando and Ariel were fantastic. Made you feel safe at all times and really made the experience amazing. The pictures we bought were absolutely amazing. It is a full on day and you’re shattered by the end of it but one of the highlights of our trip.
Unforgettable experience
