We had an amazing time with this company. From start to finish, Danny and Roberto were amazing guides/instructors/comedians. It was made especially memorable because we got grouped up with four other girls (an all women group) who were also fun! Would do his again in a heartbeat!

My guide was Chico. He was very friendly and informative. He was great with instructions in the raft and he knew the river very well. It was a fantastic time and the scenery was beautiful too. Don't miss a chance to do this!

This is an amazing activity to do while in Costa Rica! I had so much fun and met so many nice people and our tour guide was very knowledgable and hilarious. Exploradoras Outdoor (The company) picked me up right on time from my hotel and provided breakfast and lunch. I didn't get to raft down Pacuare river due to high water from the previous rainy days but they took us to a similar river. Can't blame them for mother nature but I still loved the experience!

Soooo much fun! We were picked up in a timely manner and even though Pacuare was closed to all rafters (water level was too high to be safe), we rafter another nearby River and still had a blast. The guides were knowledgeable and helpful for all of us beginners. Be warned though- the drive is pretty long and brutal (but scenic). Breakfast and lunch were provided and were tasty and filling.

Levels depends on season

Tour actually provided by Exploradores Outdoor. Destination Services was just a broker. I definitely recommend booking directly with Exploradores Outdoor. Facilities were clean and organized, plenty of changing stalls, bathroom stalls, showers and locker for your stuff. Rapids level depends on season. I went in December and it wasn’t raining so it was a Level 2-3 at best. If you’d like more challenging level stay for the overnight during wet season and they will take you higher up. Nevertheless, had fun especially with the chill and adventurous group i was with. Guide is very experienced,, chill, and fun.

Indescribable experience

I booked this experience solo when my friend’s flight was cancelled till the next day and it was the best decision I could have made! I would do this again in a heartbeat. Such and exilerating experience with amazing views. The guides were a lot of fun, kept us safe, and I met good people on the boat I was on. The day started with pick up at the hotel, bussed to the breakfast place where we ate a basic eggs rice and beans, and then bussed a little further to the start of the river. We stopped half way for the picnic lunch beside the river. So much fun!! Remember swimsuit and shorts/ T-shirt and shoes that can get wet for the river. Water, bug spray, and sunscreen can be brought along. There is a place to store your bag at the breakfast place with a towel and change of clothes for after. Bring snacks if you have a long bus ride home! Well worth it!
