Piece of crap
Javier_H, May 2023
The worst experience ever no one picked us up and no refund was issued so you get a crappy review no more to say
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks so much for your feedback!, Note that we confirm you pick up time at 07:00am not at 07:30am, that's why you was a no show for the tour Hope soon you come back to Costa Rica and give you excellent experience !!
Great experience

Juan José JJ and the kayak guide Romeo were fantastic! They made the experience so much richer by pointing out native birds, plants, animals including monkeys and iguanas. The exhilarating trip was fun, beautiful, and well worth it.

Perfect rapids for a family
Lawrence_V, Jun 2022
On-time/early pick-up (driver was prompt - always a good start)👍. The tour guides (Mau/Gatto) clearly know the river and wildlife - able to spot animals in the trees for us (an enriching highlight). Right amount of “working” the rapids to feel like you had a good workout but not exhausted - good jocular personalities kept things fun. The facilities were nice with a shower and changing rooms for afterwards. Nice, traditional lunch at a local restaurant. Would use company/operator again.

Rockin’ River in pristine rainforest
Ralph_S, Jan 2020
This rafting experience exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Brian, raised the level of fun with his enthusiasm and expertise. We did a super scenic Class II-III stretch of the Sarapiqui River, had an enjoyable break with refreshing fruit, and a great Costa Rican lunch afterwards.
Could not attend - But pleased with Viator
Amanda K, Jul 2018
I was, unfortunately, unable to attend this trip, but I had a great experience with the Viator company. Upon booking this trip, I thought there were pickup/drop off destinations from San Jose. I quickly realized San Jose was not a pickup option, and decided to cancel my booking. The customer service representative i contacted was very helpful and was able to give me a full reimbursement without much hassle. I am very pleased with my customer service experience and would recommend the Viator booking company when planning vacation excursions!
MUY BUENA!!
Daniel_S, Feb 2024
Muy buena excursion. A pesar de la llovizna que hubo en parte de la mañana, pudimos disfrutar de un rio movido y divertido, con bellos paisajes. Buena atencion de los guias y buena comida.
