Best Whitewater Rafting Sarapiqui River, Costa Rica, Class II-III
"Amazing rafting tour. As we were doing the rafting tour in April, at the end of the dry season, the water level was relatively low. Nonetheless we had an exciting tour and it was totally worth it. All guides were very friendly, speak good English (useful in our case as our Spanish does not suffice) and have pointed out several typically Costa Rican animals, among which is the Toucan. The Sarapiqui Outdoor Center has changing rooms and restrooms. After the tour we got towels and we were brought back to the Outdoor Center. Once there, a nice fruits meal had already been prepared. Perfect service!"..."

"This was one of the highlights of our Costa Rica trip. Perfect mix of adventure, adrenaline, and relaxation all at the same time! Robertillo was our guide ... and he was a riot! He helped make the experience great. Managed to see a coati and various birds and butterflies while rafting, and both breakfast and lunch provided were tasty! I recommend this as a must if you're staying in and around San Jose. Three hours was the perfect amount of time to raft, too."..."

3-in-1 Arenal Volcano Combo Tour: River Safari Float with La Fortuna Waterfall and Volcano Hike
"The best thing we did! This is a very sweet family owned company. The group was small, and our guide had so much knowledge to share with us. The boat ride is the perfect way to start the morning, tons of animals. He was so good at spotting them, and shared binoculars with the group. The waterfall was absolutely stunning, but if you are out of shape, give yourself enough time to get back up the stairs! The Arenal hike was less strenuous than I thought it would be, and very worth it! The highlight of the tour though, lunch with the family. I so value a home cooked meal, and it was amazing to get this experience. Whether traveling solo, as a couple, or a family, BOOK THIS TOUR GROUP!!"..."
