The Best Three Days of Our Trip to Costa Rica!

From start to finish, this was the best part of entire visit to Costa Rica (and we did some great things)!

Christopher was an amazing guide. He was fun, professional, spoke good English, and is an tremendous cook (he prepared all of our delicious meals!). We always felt safe and well-taken care of. He was very polite and considerate and kept everyone on time.

Staying at the eco lodge for 2 nights is totally worth it. It gives you time to relax, hike, swim at the waterfall pools, and just chill out in a hammock. Gorgeous spot!
Beautiful and adventurous 3-day tour in Pacuare River

Wow, where to start. Such a beautiful experience and I especially want to thank Gustavo for making this an unforgettable journey. Not only did he constantly make sure I was comfortable as a solo traveler, but we had some very good and intriguing conversations that made this much more than "just" a wild water tour. He was not just a great guide, but also a good friend. However, Christopher, Raoul, Giovanni and even crazy Diego were all such great guys and I had a blast being with them.
Coming to Costa Rica I had to change my plans at the last minute. I booked this tour just two days in advance, and I was initially quite nervous if I'd be able to go at all: at that time, this tour had no reviews on this site. However, the guys at the tour were very responsive and helpful, even picking me up at a hostel which wasn't listed for pick-up.
The drive to the location and back was perfect: nice air-conditioning and even USB ports. There arrived precisely when they said they would, and along the road a lot of funs facts were told to us.
However, the reason you are reading this review is of course because you want to know how the rafting experience was. Let me tell you by saying that I won't forget this adventure for a long time. You can go river rafting with a lot of companies, who have a lot of different employees, but you won't find any company with such great guys like here. Even though they put safety first, they know where the hot spots in the river are and make this an awesome adventure. They guide you and make sure everyone is having a great time and is a part of the journey, whether you be young or old or athletic or lazy. The guides explain different facts about the jungle during your stay and you occassionally stop for some beautiful hiking moments. There are even moments you can jump in the water and float alongside the boat in an epic canyon. They do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your stay.
Further more, the lodge where you stay is simply just beautiful. No wifi or cellphone connection, which means peace and rest for body and mind. Cherry on top: the food they serve is simply delicious. Get ready for some typical Costa Rican dishes with nice surprises.
The three day tour was definitely worth it, although some might rather choose the two day. The difference is that with the three day tour, you stay an extra day to relax at the lodge and explore the surrounding jungle with a guide.
Although I went alone, plenty of families and friends went on this tour and had a great time, from what I could gather. Keep in mind that 6 people fills a boat, but you can go rafting even with an uneven number.
My words fall way too short in how I can describe this tour. For the start of my vacation here, however, I can assure you I loved every moment of it. Definitely a recommendation. Do make sure to bring shoes that can get wet, though, because you'll be making gigantic splashes.
Topervaring in Costa Rica; super goede organisatie van begin tot eind!!!

Waanzinnige ervaring, super goede organisatie! Het raften is top met hele goede, deskundige begeleiding, de lodge waar we 2 nachten verbleven helemaal top! Basis voorzieningen, maar absoluut goed. Eten erg lekker en de gidsen, Esteban en Diego waren geweldig en erg gezellig! Dag 2 een leuke hike gedaan met de gidsen; veel gezien en vooral veel lol gehad bij de watervallen en lekker gezwommen! Al met al een top ervaring; hoogte punt in Costa Rica!

Sin lugar a dudas ha sido una de las mejores experiencias que hemos podido vivir en Costa Rica.
Nuestro guía fué Kenny y no podíamos haber estado mejor acompañados y atendidos. Un 10 de principio a final.
La única manera de acceder al alojamiento es mediante rafting, con lo cuál sólo puedes llevar lo imprescindible. En nuestro caso nos guardaron las maletas grandes de viaje hasta finalizar la experiencia y nos fuimos con las mochilas dónde llevábamos lo necesario para los tres días.
El rafting es muy seguro. Te dan casco y chaleco de protección. Los guías son expertos y conocen muy bien el río. Además nos acompañaba una persona extra de soporte que iba siempre cerca en una piragua.
Realizamos dos salidas en rafting. La primera de aproximadamente 1h30 y la segunda de unas 4h con parada para almorzar. El Río es espectacular, la segunda parte es la más escénica. Es indescriptible lo bonito que es el paisaje y la de flora y fauna que se ve durante el recorrido. Flotar en las zonas tranquilas del río es muy recomendable. También en esta segunda salida nos acompaño un fotógrafo profesional que hizo fotografías durante el recorrido y luego nos vendió todas a muy buen precio.
El hotel Ríos Tropicales nos pareció espectacular, su entorno en plena naturaleza lo hace mágico. Desayunamos, almorzamos y cenamos de maravilla, especialmente en las cenas dónde nos preparaban una mesa con velas y vino. También pudimos disfrutar de la "happy hour" (una copa y picoteo buenísimo) sobre las 17h30.
Sí todo esto no era suficiente, también nos surgió la oportunidad, gracias a Kenny, de conocer cómo era antiguamente un poblado indígena que se encuentra a unas horas de camino des del hotel.
Altamente recomendable

De las mejores experiencias de nuestra vida. Hicimos rafting por el Rio Pacuare para hospedarnos en su “eco lodge” durante tres días. La estancia allí fue impecable, el equipo no nos pudo dar mejor trato, nos sentimos como en casa, con muchos detalles por ser nuestra luna de miel y un cumpleaños que también nos celebraron ellos. A nivel entretenimiento genial, visitamos una tribu indígena e hicimos una ruta a caballo. Además tienen una “piscina natural” al lado del eco lodge con una cascada increíble. Agradecer de corazón a Kenet y Julián (nuestros guías) por esa experiencia.
