Wonderful trip and with two great guides, Damian and Anthony. They were a great duo because Damian ran the business side of the trip and Anthony is a native who knows a lot about the land and culture. All 11 of us (ages 5 to 65) enjoyed the trip. Some of the more adventurous people tried the natural slides in the river, abs we all enjoyed the hot springs and fresh fruit snack. Over all it was wonderful, and it was enjoyable to be off the beaten path. My one suggestion is to wear a life vest for the slides. Damian had them available but did not require people to wear them.

First off, Costa Rica Tropical Adventures are the cream of the crop! Unlike the bigger tour companies, these guys treat you like family. They were extremely communicative replying to WhatsApp messages immediately, answered my calls to coordinate pick up, and entertained (all my dumb) questions. Above all, they spoke 100% English. On top of that, they were willing to drive to a pharmacy along the way to pick up Dramamine for my other half (which we later learned he didn't really need it). The most important lesson I learned from these guys is "safety first." Rain took place before the day of our tour causing the upper Naranjo River to be dangerous. Damian called to advise that they could not, in good conscience, take anyone to these waters and offered the lower section of the river (which was not as tumultuous) and refunded the difference. The bigger guys would've taken tourists to the upper river regardless, which would've been disastrous, causing casualties. CRTA knows the rivers, they respect nature, and lookout for their passengers. Okay, enough about that... We absolutely had an EPIC time with Mel (our guide), Joshua (our safety guy who would kayak before us and fetch anyone who falls off the raft--luckily no one fell out), and Ceidy who prepared a scrumptious snack. This was the BEST part of our trip to Costa Rica. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, stay away from the bigger tour companies and go local. These guys are amazing!

Our group of 6 had an amazing morning going to a private waterfall and swimming hole. We could swim beneath the falls, jump into the pool or relax in the flowing water. It was beautiful, cool and refreshing. We were the only ones there. Only a guide like Damian would be able to take us to such a remote place. We had a wonderful time.

Damian is the "Go To person" in Manuel Antonio. He is very lively, accommodating and knowledgeable in tourist spots history. The pineapple, natural juice and cookies as snacks were amazing. I felt safe during the entire Waterfalls and hotspring tour. The resto where he took us was so delicious with good portion. The hotspring was so relaxing and the views with the drive going to each tour were so scenic. Have I had more time I would def try the rafting and so good to gain new acquaintances as I met the newly wed couple. i def recommend Damian 100%.
