So much fun and adventure. Guide was amazing Kevin is da bomb.
Totally worth it, you will have the time to enjoy nature, laugh,feel a little scare but the time of your life getting wet.
This was the best river we have ever rafted on. Our guide, Ray, was fantastic and he pointed out key points along the way. The trip is long and involves a great workout but well worth the money and time. When we return to Costa Rica in the future we will definately go down the Pacuare River again. It was the highlight of our trip!
Thrilling ride! I can't wait to do it again! The tour guide was awesome.
Great staff! had a great time! I highly recommend this experience.
What a day!! We did this on day one of our holiday in Costa Rica .. and what a welcome it was!
So much fun! The river wasn't at it's highest when we went, but still an incredible experience. It was so good, we decided to go rafting again on another river. This was the better river by far.
This was a wonderful trip. The guide on the bus gave us great information about what to expect and what to do on the river. He also gave us information about the country. Our guide on the river was very good he made the trip fun and exciting. I felt well taken care of the whole time. I have always wanted to do this and I am glad I did.
LOVED every minute of this tour! we started off the day with a 6:15am pickup at my hostel in san jose. then we drove an hour and half to the tour company's operations center for a good hearty breakfast. after that, we drove a little more to the pacuare river with class 3-4 rapids. my friend and i did this at the end of may, during rainy season so the rivers were full of water and super fast moving. apparently, the water levels were so high and fast that we finished the course in 2 hours, instead of the usual 4 hour it takes to traverse the course. after getting absolutely soaked and knocked down by massive rapids, we went back to the operations center, took a shower in their well-kept shower facilities and ate a delicious lunch. also, there's a photographer in a kayak taking pictures of all the participants on the course- my tip is to purchase the photo package with your raft members- it's around 10/person and they will send you a link to the pictures online where you can then download. this is my first time doing whitewater rafting- it was intense and an adrenaline-filled adventure and i would totally do it again in a heartbeat!
Excellent guides, food was great! Had the best time. This was my 2nd time with this company. Will do it again.
Fantastic trip. Didn't know exactly what to expect, but turned out it was 27km of some of the best rapids in the world. Beautiful scenery. Our guide Mathias was one of the most professional and reassuring guides I've ever met in any adventure sport. A must.
Our whitewater rafting tour was one of our favorite things we did in Costa Rica. Our tour guide was personable and knowledgeable and kept us safe. We had so much fun! Beautiful scenery and a good length of time I think we were on the river for about 4 hours. The river was kind of low at the time we went February, but it wasnt too low or too high, so we had medium-sized rapids. So fun. The only advice I would give is to eat a lot at the breakfast they provide or bring a snack for right before you get on the water, because we did get pretty hungry by the end but they provide a late lunch after the raft trip. We would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Costa Rica.
Excellent adventure. The guide (George) was fully bilingual and extremely knowledgeable of the area's wildlife.
Rapids, food, and tour guides were amazing! The river is gorgeous!
Whitewater rafting was brilliant! I went in the dry season so for my first time doing this activity it was perfect for me so it wasnt "too extreme". The tour guide was briliant and spoke great English and was a really nice guy. The food on the day was great, I have nothing negative to say :)
My husband and I had a blast! We had Reynaldo as our guide and he was fantastic! This was our first time river rafting and took to it really well with the help of Rey it was a team effort. My husband and I worked really hard and due to low waters it definitely a work out. We saw an incredible waterfall and Rey taught us about the flora and fauna in the area. We were feed an incredibly delicious lunch 3/4 of our way we stopped on a little dry bank where they catered fresh fruit and sandwiches. We even saw some indigenous Indians that live in the area! Due to this river rafting trip we are hooked and will be booking more river rafting trips in our future adventures.. Big thanks to Ray!
This was my favorite adventure in Costa Rica!!! It is adrenaline packed and visually beautiful. Our tour guide was Christian and he made the river a perfect experience combining his knowledge of the river and surroundings and his good time attitude. If you do not book any other tour book this one. It is a must do!
amazing experience!!! i cant describe in words how much fun i had on this trip.. the tour company was prompt and was amazingly helpful and knowledgable, the area was gorgeous i cant stop recomending it
Had an amazing time. Ray is a great tour guide and we had "Chino" as our raft guide. I told him I would tip him extra as long as I didn't fall in the water. We were both very happy at the end. A must do for Costa Rica travelers looking for adventure.
I've been on half a dozen whitewater rafting trips in the last few years and this one was the best by far. Our guide was great.
The whitewater rafting was VERY fun, and VERY long. You didn't leave there feeling like you only had a short ride. We had 3 full hours on the river, and excellent guides that made it fun for our 13 and 16 year olds too. Biggest frustration was not the fault of the tour operator, but they probably could have made this more clear before hand. Ours was a 13 hour day from San Jose pick up time. 13 hours, for 3 hours on the river. That part sucked. The rest of the time was making pick ups, stuck in traffic, driving, or dropping people off and a bit of time eating breakfast and lunch. That part was a huge bummer. 5:20am pick up, and home just after 6:00pm.
