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!!!

This activity is sort of ok but let me tell you the truth: it says you get picked up at your hotel. Truth: someone walks to your hotel to pick you up and you walk 15 minutes with them to reach the van. The ad says you get the use of a wet suit. Truth: the wet suits are old and ripped. It says that you have a professional English speaking guide. Truth: the guide speaks limited English. The ad says that you have a guaranteed security team. Truth: I don't have any idea what that is but we didn't have one. More truth: the water is so cold that you should be told to bring VERY warm clothing to wear after the rafting. The sauna is not warm, the showers are cold. The zip lining is poor and the gloves are ripped. On the positive side: our raft guide Cesear was friendly and helpful. IF I had known then what I know now, I would have gone with a different company not with: Bamba Experience.
