This company runs an excellent rafting experience. It was run on-time and the staff did all they could to make the experience real, fun and safe. They also added a nice farm tour which enhanced the Costa Rican experience. I highly recommend this company.

A first rate adventure on a really awesome river. Nothing but white water for 8 miles and some great rapids. Jorge our raft captain was excellent and Horacio and Pablo looked after us from their kayaks and took brilliant photos. Superb day, thank you.
