So much fun

My boyfriend and I had so much fun on this adventure. We met a great group of people and rafted down some awesome rapids. Although we had rafting experience, I would also recommend for beginners. Lunch was delicious and the tour of the farm behind the restaurants was GREAT

Manuel was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and great sense of humor! I do question the class IV rating though.

All-Inclusive! Fun and Exciting

This tour was awesome. We were picked up and taken by bus to the river. There we were given detailed instructions on how to safely white-water raft. It was a blast! At some points it was scary, but our guide was awesome. After the intense rapids, we were given fresh fruit to snack on and then we could float and swim more down the river. Then we were bussed back to the office, where we were given a delicious lunch and a drink. Then we were guided around the little farm to look at the different animals and plants they had. We got to try the sugar cane and the moonshine! It was all-around an awesome experience.

We had a lot of fun rafting! Our guide, Carlos, was attentive and very informative! He took us down rapid routes and also pointed out lots of the fauna: we saw birds, even a toucan, many Sloths, bats, Frogs and others. The fruit was good and the lunch was alright (typical Costa Rican with beans, rice, chicken and a salad). I would highly suggest to leave all things in the minibus - during the rafting adventure I fell in the water (which was so much fun!), but would've lost my phone if I had it. The only let down was that coffee and tea weren't really included, even though the ad said they were. We were expecting to have coffee and tea available before leaving, but there wasn't any. There was a coffee show when we had the lunch, but 2pm was too late for us to enjoy the coffee. Nevertheless, I would recommend as a fun activity, but would like it if they didn't advertise coffee as included and maybe just say it's a coffee demonstration at lunch.
