Phenomenal river rafting company

Richardo (Chizo) was the perfect guide for our family! We made the trip enjoyable, while really engaging our boys in the whole experience. We were able to get out and swim, jump off a ledge and the best part was stopping along the way for fresh fruit. Richardo pointed out an iguana and sloths in the tree as well. This is a 5-star rafting company, no question. Alex also was interesting as he provided information about Costa Rica while driving to the river. This company is highly recommended.

This was an incredible experience. We had Alejandro, who was funny, professional, and very informative. Everything about the trip was great. The rapids, the stop for fruit, the company, the guide, the beer, and the meal at the end. During the slower periods on the river, Alejandro would point out birds, bats, plants, and other wildlife. We even saw a toucan! I would highly recommend both Alejandro and Arenal Rafting.

We went on two rafting trips with Aurelio as our guide- he not only made sure we were safe, but also made it thrilling! With 4 kids, each with different thrill thresholds, he made sure each child was comfortable and also had an amazing time. On our second trip, the water level was quite high, making the river faster and the rapids nearly constant- exciting trip! Can’t say enough good things about Aurelio.

Great time was had by all 4 in our party. I have never gone whitewater rafting and was quite nervous about trying the 3 - 4 rapids, but the tour guides were all very well trained and showed us a great time!! Highlight of our trip to Costa Rica!
