Fun for all ages

We had a great time. Lucky it was not rainy season so the rapids where just fine for 60's- 70's age couples. They picked us up at our hotel. It was a great experience

It is well organized, informative and enjoyable from the beginning to the end. We were picked up at our hotel for a 25-min ride. During the ride, the guide was telling interesting stories and facts about Costa Rica and its nature. Then we had a brief restroom stop and started our safari. We were split into 3 boats. In our...

We chose the raft for a smooth, relaxing trip while the others were bouncing off each other in the kayaks. Our guide was amazing in spotting animals along the river banks, but bring a high power zoom lense with you. Those trees are tall. We were introduced to different flora, several rare river otters, gators, sloths, monkeys, many birds, including... More

We enjoyed a lovely leisurely trip down the river, guided expertly by our guide. He was very knowledgable on the local wildlife and picked out countless varieties of birds, lizards and mammals. After the trip we visited the Don Pedro's Farm for local treats, a great end to a lovely afternoon.

It was such a blast hanging with the guides Pedro, Bert and Steven all morning, finding howler monkeys, crocs and sloths. If you do any tours in la fortuna, make it this one.

The guides are amazing and speak very good english and are jovial, their jokes are very timely and made the entire trip fun for the family. They have a very good eye for spotting wildlife and showed us a lot of wildlife. Don Pedro's farm was the highlight of the trip in my mind. The snacks were delicious and the... More

This float was primarily focused on finding wildlife and learning about the region/animals while floating down the scenic river. Our high energy guide, Pedro, peppered us with interesting background information, cracked jokes, and spotted elusive animals we never would have seen on our own. Our group had three photographers and this activity was perfect for capturing wildlife pictures. Midway, there... More

Just a great family adventure and experience! Pedro was the team leader and our float guide - just excellent. His enthusiasm and humor were infectious and made the whole trip, even the van ride to and from the river, so very enjoyable! He is exceptional at his job! We saw many animals, including the howler monkeys and two sloths. A+++

The River Float was recommended to my family as we have children. The trip was great. We saw a lot of wildlife, our guide was fantastic but honestly, it's a little bit boring and a pretty long tour. We visited a local family that served us coffee and treats... this was wonderful and a highlight! The tour was honestly as... More

Hire the raft and the guide just for you. A magical peacefull few hours watching the river otters, blue heron and the monkeys. Super guide – great communications – and respectful passion about the topic.
