Went river rafting with aventuras de sarapiqui. Not too hard, but loads of fun. Good for all ages and abilities. Our guide, Davis, kept us smiling. They served a snack of watermelon and pineapple.

The boat ride was relaxing... the main attraction: the crocodiles, iguanas, monkeys and birds that made up some of the wildlife that inhabit the river and forest. This was definitely a highlight of our week-long tour of this beautiful country.
