Rodrigo Rocks!!
Vaneza_M, Jul 2022
One of the highlights of our trip. It was our family of three first time water rafting. My daughter and I were a bit nervous but our guide was amazing!! Rodrigo made our experience very enjoyable, he was very knowledgeable. He is a great communicator and we had a blast!! Lunch was also delicious, i had fish tilapia. Food was tasty portion was a bit small but I did get my food towards the end of the line. Super fun, highly recommend.

Terrific time with "Terminator"!!
Jennifer_N, Jul 2022
This was an amazing trip! From pickup to dropoff, everything was run smoothly. Our guide "Terminator" was spectacular! He was entertaining, informative, personable and so fun as our guide. He gave us our money's worth on the 12 foot dropoff when we went down backwards (while still staying safe, I might add)! The staff were all friendly and professional. The meal at the end was perfect for our growling bellies, after all the paddling. Would highly recommend this trip.....worth the money. Ask for "Terminator" as your guide; you won't be disappointed.
Whitewater Rafting Tenorio River
Joshua_G, Jul 2022
Transportation to and from the hotel was excellent; Jose was knowledgeable and very friendly. Daniel, our guide, was fabulous, providing a fun and safe experience while also showing us some fascinating things along the river. It was even more fun and exciting than we had expected. The day ended with a tasty lunch and great pictures that were taken along the way that were very reasonably priced. All in all a fabulous day and we highly recommend this tour
Mario did a great job....
Jaime_L, Jun 2022
Mario did a great job. Can really tell that he knows the way around the rapids, and he even added in little details about trees and monkeys. Highly recommend, and we plan to do more in future. Felt like we were in very capable hands.
Depends on the guide. Trip was about him, not about us.
Peter_v, Jun 2022
It would have been a better trip if our guide the ‘terminator’ didn’t dunk us on the 2 big rapids. We did most of the rowing when other groups did almost none. We paid for photos but it was just us falling in the water. NOT one did we make it for a good thumbs up photo. This was for the guide having fun. Not about us. Also my wife got taken down when the guide flipped the raft onto her. She has many bruises and won’t forget about this… not observant or safe.
Simisola_O, May 2022

A great first time experience
Sarah_B, May 2022
We had a great time. Our guide Jason made sure we had a great experience since it was our first time. I would definitely do it again!!
Great day!
Nisse_R, Apr 2022
This was an excellent experience! The water was super low so it was mostly technical rafting with a couple big waves. It was really fun. Our guide, Fernando, was hilarious and very knowledgeable about the area. We even saw some monkeys!

Our guides Jason and Durman, were exceptional. They were extremely skilled, knowledgeable and very pleasant company. Views were amazing. Animal sightings were exciting (saw family of five white faced monkeys, iguanas, fish, tadpoles). And lastly the food EM was delicious. An incredible experience.

A Thrilling Adventure
Aaron_H, Mar 2021
We had an absolutely amazing time with Sam as he guided us down the rapids. As a first timer, I was a littler nervous to see Class 3 & 4 rapids, but these turned out to be no problem as the guides are very knowledgeable and give clear directions when to paddle, when to get in the tube and what direction to lean to.
experiencia fantastica!!!!
