Amazing Adventure

Wow! This was a trip of a lifetime. White water rafting was an amazing adrenaline rush. Our guide Eduardo was very knowledgeable and skilled. Not once did I feel unsafe. I felt like I was in a movie. We are so glad we did this, the value is incredible. Food, adventure, sights, fun, all in the same trip!

We took this trip about 1/2 way through our 2 week trip in Costa Rica. It was a way to see more of the country that you wouldn't see otherwise and we had a great time in the process. The river was beyond our expectations. So very beautiful. Our guide, Andreas, was amazing. You could tell that he was very knowledgeable of the area and very passionate and experienced at what he was doing. The banter between the guides was a lot of fun too. Everyone had a great time!

They run a fantastic operation! From pick-up at hotel to the food to the experience on the river — it was awesome! It’s a workout but the guides were kind, helpful, and supportive. We had such a great time.

Great rafting, but also a lot of driving

We had a really good time doing the White water Rafting at Pacuare River. The environment is stunning and our Guide (Roy) was great and had a lot of experience. But it was a lot of driving (~ 2 Hours from Puerto Viejo to the breakfast Location and after that another 45 minutes Minuten of driving to get to the starting Point at the River). We got picked up at 6.30 am and came back at 5 pm. So in total it was almost 5 Hours of driving and 5 Hours of Rafting, breakfast and Lunch. We still think it was worth it though!

Our guide Andres was amazing and very entertaining. This was our first ever time going white water rafting and I think we picked the best one. The Pacuare River is a perfect mix of rapids and floating along with excitement and adventure and topped off with breathtaking scenery. You can’t go wrong with this trip and I feel is a must do for Costa Rica.

I've been whitewater rafting several times in the US, but this was the most fun and exciting rafting trip to date. Our raft guide was Andres and he was so energetic, supportive and fun. He was also with us on the shuttle to and from our meeting point and made sure to point out many cool things along the way. During the rafting part he made sure we were well prepared and provided us with a few exciting surprises along the way. There were a lot of people participating, about 85, so kind of crowded for breakfast and lunch plus with so many people to manage some of the other guides were sometimes a little pushy to keep the day on schedule. It was much longer than I expected, 6 hrs from the time you arrive at the base camp until you return to it, not 6 hrs from hotel pickup to dropoff...but that was a very pleasant surprise as it allowed for 3-4 hrs on the river. We got to exit the rafts a few times for swimming, and the overall views were amazing. Make sure you wear sunscreen, didn't need any bug spray. Highly recommend, we are already looking for another rafting trip during our stay in La Fortuna.
