Wave is the best local company to work with for your adventure needs. We were blessed to get Carlos as our guide and are certain our time in La Fortuna would not have been as memorable without him. He went out of his way to teach us many things about Costa Rica, the environment, animals and even Spanish. We had an amazing time rafting down the Balsa river. The rapids are no joke, but he taught us well and kept us safe the entire time. If you are looking for adventure in La Fortuna, go with Wave everyone there is amazing, but we will always request Carlos - Pura Vida!
Great tour! Carlos our guide was very proffesional and Nice. Whole family enjoyed it!!
Highly recommended. You would love it!
We did the combination of the hanging bridges in the morning and the rafting in the afternoon. Marcos picked us up at 7am at the hotel and it was just my husband and I for the hanging bridges. What a fantastic morning! We learned so much from Marcos, about the forest and the animals and pretty much everything about Costa Rica that we could think to ask! We saw an eyelash pit viper, many birds and monkeys, both howler and capuchin. On the drive back to La Fortuna Marcos pulled over as he saw a sloth which we would definitely have missed. We got pictures and videos of the animals through the scope, which were amazing. After a brief wait at the office, we went rafting. Because the Balsa was too low due to an issue at the dam, we went on the Sarapiqui. There were about 7 rafts in our group, 5 of us with Marcos. The rafting was super fun! We saw a lot of birds and Marcos told us what each one was. The rapids were fun, and we stopped for a swim and later to jump off the rocks into the river. We had fresh fruit before the rafting and a wonderful Costa Rican buffet lunch after, and they demonstrated squeezing sugar cane and we drank the juice as well as tried some sugar can liquor. Back to La Fortuna and our hotel at ~5pm, so it was a very full day! If you have the opportunity to do this excursion, I would absolutely recommend it. Especially if you have the incredible fortune of getting Marcos as your guide. Within our amazing 12 day trip in Costa Rica, this was our favourite day!
Nice and friendly

We had a nice fulfilling day with the guys from wave. We did the hanging bridges tour the next day because it was raining heavily and Marcus (guide) said we can do it tomorrow without any extra costs!! The rafting with Gerald was amazing and he also saw 2 sloths down the road which he showed us. Also the food afterwards and the little zugarcane tour were really pretty. It was just an amazing day (actually it was 1 1/2 with the hanging bridges on the next day) would highly recommend it!!
Great Tour in the La Fortura Area
