Heaven on earth

This was my first tour in Costa Rica and by far the most memorable. It did wonders for my mental health being truly immersed in nature and getting a good workout too. Before the tour even started the communication from the tour operator was on point. Everything we would need for the tour was explained and pick-up details confirmed. I felt very prepared. Our driver, John, arrived on time and he was great. John set the stage by telling us about the history of Costa Rica and other interesting facts that were relevant on the drive to the tour location. The drive there was worthy of a tour in itself. The guide for the rafting, David, was wonderful. He was friendly and made us feel very relaxed. He gave very clear instructions and before long we got the hang of it and had a great time. He pointed out interesting animals as we went along. We saw some rare and interesting birds and some monkeys along the way so that was great. Going over the rapids was an exhilarating feeling but there were plenty of opportunities to press pause in calmer waters and take a swim. We took a break for a snack of local fruits on the riverside. The location was idyllic. My only regret is that I did not have a longer stay in Costa Rica. I would have loved to go back and do level 3 and 4 rapids.
