Great and informative guides, Mike and Durma. Both were understandable and helpful keeping us safe tubing. I and wife are 62 but had a great, safe tubing trip. Rocky road to get there but worth the trip.

Mike and Durna were my guides. On the drive to the mountains, they supplied us with interesting history and facts about the local floral/fauna. They identified and let us taste/smell/touch ceylon cinnamon, ylang ylang, guanacaste, mimosas, menthol, cocoa, lemongrass, and pointed out the vultures, iguanas, lizards, etc. The tubing was fun and chill. Really patient shepherding, Durna snapped some great... More

We had an amazing ride down the Naranjo River with experienced, safety-conscious guides who sure earned their dollars with us! Our capable raft guide took great care of the three of us and we enjoyed an exciting ride down the river---even the anxious mom (me) knew we were in good hands and we'd do it again! Our 10 yr old...

Simply the best possible times in Pura Vida Costa Rican style. Our tours were Alvaro, Durman and our driver was Jairo. All I can say about them is they are awesome.

The river is perfect for tubing. Be comfortable with the possibility of being tossed off your tube in a rapid. It's exciting but not for everyone. Joe from Austin Texas is one of the nicest, most knowledgable, most helpful fun guides we have ever met. Can't say enough about him. The other guides were good also. Here are the cautions:... More

Great trip today down the Naranja/ El Chorro today, wild ride with great guides. We've rafted in class V's before in the states but really nothing like these. This was fast and technical, and a bit terrifying at times,i.e. swimming the Chorro rapid after flipping! but with the great guiding and perservance we did make it through this amazing section...
