        10/10 - a great experience!
        Such a great experience from start to finish. Stephen (Esteban) was awesome. We cooked ceviche and chicken empanadas along with our two young children. Delicious food and great fun - highly recommend!

        Amazing adventure
        Grevin was amazing he directed us so we wouldn’t fall.. he educated us on what was near the river. From plants to animals, and rivers. We got soaked but it was definitely worth it.

        Awesome trip! We had a blast as a family. The guides were amazing. Chamo was the best guide that had all the knowledge. Stopped to show us sloths poison frogs and bats. My sisters and I fell off but it was epic! Just the right amount of challenge and danger.

        Great experience resulting in delicious food
        My husband booked this fairly last minute / by chance and we are really glad we did. The class is held in the restaurant behind the tour company office and there is a small farm (garden) behind where they grow some of the produce. Before we started cooking our guide/translator took us on a whistle stop tour of the farm and we got to press some sugar cane and try some moonshine. The cookery class was really good fun and the chef was great. We made ceviche using her special recipe accompanied by patacones (plantain) followed by empanadas. Whilst ours definitely didn't look the prettiest, I think more practice may be needed, they tasted delicious. There was certainly plenty of food and we left feeling stuffed. Would recommend and the chef and the guide were great .

        A great day on the water and seeing wildlife!
        Warner and the team were amazing! We got on the river and immediately saw a crocodile and we continued with howler monkeys and iguanas. Lunch after the safari was also delicious. The team took great care of us. Would highly recommend this tour if you love being on the water and seeing wildlife in their natural habitat.

        Good eats, lovely location
        When you arrive you're shown around the location's wonderfully diverse garden, there is an orange cat who is adorable. You get to see how sugar cane juice is made and try a little bit. I won't spoil the cooking process but it's fun! The food itself was lovely and as with all cooking classes it's rewarding to eat something that you made that you didn't know how to make a few hours ago

      If rafting is on your bucket list this is definitely the place to go and check it off!

      The trip begins at the restaurant where you get on the bus and they make their way up to the drop point. Carlos was one of the guides on the bus and he was very thorough on instruction and explaining what the experience would be like.

      Before arriving to the drop point we were assigned into groups of 5. Once arriving each group met with their guide. They explain to you again the rules and process as you are strapping on your equipment.

      Our assigned Jason as our guide and he was truly amazing. He was very communicative on how each step of the ride would go. Throughout the whole ride down the river he would always let us know about what was coming ahead and how we should prepare for it as a team. Constantly checking in to make sure we were all happy and safe and getting the most out of what we wanted in the experience. At no moment did we ever feel unsafe or worried, he was a great guide and was very enthusiastic and full of life. Being that we were all pretty nervios and scared at the beginning Jason really helped get our spirits up and be able to enjoy the ride.

      We will definitely be back soon!

      Awesome company and experience. My family (wife, 2 teen boys and myself) had an amazing time rafting with this company. Our guides were phenomenal - among the best I have ever seen in my many travels.

      We were lucky to get the trip leader, Jose, as our boat leader and he was just downright incredible. Warm, funny, super knowledge about plants and animals and extremely experienced and safe. I cannot complement him enough. He loves what he does - it was clear in his smile and approach. He ensured the safety and smiles of his “team” (the 6 of us on our raft with him), as well as the other 7 boats we were with.

      My youngest son was pretty nervous/anxious and Jose completely put him at the ease. Another raft had a family with a ~10 year old with Down Syndrome and same deal - the guides said no problem at all. And there really was no problem.

      Good rapids along the way mostly class III, but of II, bit of IV.

      Add in awesome lunch after, education about environment and flora/fauna, etc and I just can’t recommenced enough.

      Pura Vida!

      My family had a fantastic time on this trip. Got picked up at exactly the projected time from our Airbnb in La Fortuna. There were a total of ~ 20 people on the trip split between two vans - we were divided by the raft guides into groups of 4-6. The tour host (Orlando) was also our rafting guide. My two boys (ages 7, 10 years) and my wife (who cannot swim) and I (very limited rafting experience) were in a raft with just him; he gave us clear instructions on how he wanted us to row and he obviously was supremely experienced. I have no doubt he could have rowed the raft by himself as I'm pretty sure my family wasn't contributing a lot of horsepower to that raft.

      The ~ 2 hour rafting trip was a great balance of fun/excitement with getting wet/soaked while looking out for wildlife and Orlando explaining the different housing patterns of egrets and owls etc. My boys point to the rafting trip as the highpoint of our weeklong trip to Costa Rica (over ziplining, hot spring water slides, and about 500 fruit smoothies).

      Lunch after the trip (at the Boathouse restaurant) was good - although honestly when you're starving after rowing everything tastes really good. But even my 7 year old who probably rowed 25 strokes the entire trip enjoyed the food, so that's saying something. The sugarcane/farm tour was a lowkey, enjoyable way to wind down the day.

      I'm sure that the rafting tours somewhat mirror one another. I just wanted to leave a review stating that we certainly had an extremely enjoyable time while feeling completely safe with a family of young kids and a spouse who could drown in 3 feet of water.

      Our family of four (2 girls ages 8 and 10) had a fantastic day rafting with tour guide Andre! He was so patient and so fun! He took extra time to practice the strokes and commands before getting in the water so everyone felt comfortable. We saw an iguana sunning himself high in a tree and Andre even found the illusive poison dart frog for us to view up close. The thrill of the rapids and beauty of the rainforests followed by a delicious lunch and short tour of the organic farm made for a fabulous, memorable day. Well worth the ticket price!

The tour guide Daniel was very nice and funny, then Jason in the boat during the rafting mantain us safe all the time but at the same time gave us an increidible experience. In between they gave us a fruit picnic and at the end an excelente lunch with great coffe. To finish we walk around the organic farm. Totally recomended!!

      Absolutely the best time of our trip!! From the point of arrival to the meal and tour of their organic farm at the end we never stopped smiling, laughing and genuinely enjoying ourselves. Mario and Beto were are guides on our bus and they made the drive amazing! Mario is such an amazing human being! We felt so safe with him leading us while also joking around and laughing the whole time. When we arrived at the launch point we met our raft guide White Water Warner. Let me tell you, this guy was the best time. We were lucky enough to to have 4 other awesome people with us on the raft ready for a good time so Warner took that and made it amazing. He showed us wildlife along the river while surprising us with straight water to the face (in the best way). I’m pretty sure not one of us stopped laughing and smiling the whole time. At our lunch break we enjoyed the BEST fruit and beer of the trip and got to know the other couples. We switched guides to John Carlo for the second half and it just got better and better! He knew our vibe and made the rapids so fun! Four of us fell out on one rapid and to be honest was the highlight of the trip! I felt so safe and was quickly and calmly rescued with a smile on my face. He went above and beyond and made serveral stops along the side of the river to show us the native plants and wildlife! We were so bummed to see the trip end but we enjoyed every minute we had! Thank you so much Descents for an amazing trip. We highly recommend you guys to anyone and everyone! :)

      Amazing day doing the white water rafting. Whole experience was great from start to finish with incredibly friendly and attentive staff who seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had the best time. Our water guide was Jimmy made sure we were all enjoying ourselves and that everyone felt safe. Lots of additional stuff including a very yummy lunch, fresh Costa Rican coffee, and seeing their lovely organic farm. We had been wary of paying this much for the tour, but it was 100% worth the money. Would recommend to anyone wanting a fun day with either friends or family of any age!!

      We signed up to tuning but ended up doing white water rafting and it was amazing. Orlando was our guide and he really took care of our girls aged 9/11 and made sure they were safe in the raft. The whole tour was great and they made it fun, can’t recommend it highly enough. Lunch was great too and they do plenty of stops and cater for young kids.

      This was amazing! I took my family, Wife, four daughters (16, 14, 10, 8) out for a day of white water rafting. I was a little concerned about my younger daughters but our guide, Jimmy, did a fantastic job of alleviating my fears and was wonderful with them. All the other guides on the other boats also seemed to be keeping a close eye on them as well. We got down the river safely and met some really cool people from all over the world. When we got back to their base (which is a pretty nice restaurant itself) we had an awesome lunch prepared for us and took a tour of their farm, drank fresh sugarcane juice and some tequila for the adults. This was such a great experience and I cant recommend it highly enough. Everyone was extremely friendly, while obviously being concerned for everyone's safety and making sure we all had fun. Jimmy, if you're reading this, I doubt my girls will ever forget this experience, so thank you so much! If you're looking for something to do in La Fortuna, (and there is plenty!) you cant go wrong with Costa Rica Descents! I believe they do all kinds of adventure tours, and we will definitely book our next experience of a lifetime with them! Pura Vida!

      Incredible Tour, Amazing time, Fantastic People. 10 out of 10 would do again. Costa Rica Descents has so many great tour guides that will guarantee fun for the whole Family. I wanted adrenaline infused adventure meanwhile a few family members were in search of safe and slow outdoor time, our tour guide’s name was Warner and he made sure to accommodate the whole family. Had the little ones screaming of joy and exceeded everyone’s expectations when he jumped out of our raft to grab us some delicious fruit. So many memories were made and Warner was not the only person to make an impression other tour guides would interact with our family to make it fun for all around. Thank you Warner, Orlando, Charlie and everyone else who made our day so memorable.
