Our trip on the Chirripo River was cancelled because of dangerous conditions on the river. We however did not miss a whitewater activity.
. The tour company made arrangements to take us to another location which was safe and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip. We had a snack at a spot where we got out of the boat and could go swimming. We continued our trip. After a very nice lunch we headed back to our hotel.
Beto was a wonderful guide--both on and off the water. Wali was a skilled driver who kept us safe on mountain roads between San Jose and the River. Beto is a skilled and sympathetic teacher. He's got clear communication skills and is able to anticipate what novice paddlers will do on the water. He got us through some challenging stretches of river and we all had a great time while doing it! I would definitely book this trip again!
The water was at a low level and that was disappointing but our guide Stanley made the ride interesting and fun! He was funny, informative and open to our questions. Stanley was the reason the rafting turned out to be a great time! The fruit snack and jumping off the edge of the hill in to the water was an added bonus. I would recommend this excursion! Ask for Stanley - he was great!!!
