What To Expect

Playa Manuel Antonio
Once you are picked up at your hotel the drive is about 25 minutes to the starting point. On the way there, we drive through a couple of local Costa Rican towns. It is an informative ride as our guides tell you about the Costa Rican lifestyle and answer any of your questions.

Once we get to our destination, you are fitted with the rafting gear and given a safety briefing. The ride down the river is about 1 1/2 hours though lush jungle and rain forest. The rapids are class 3 and 3+. Towards the end we float through a palm plantation before getting to the take out. Here you will be served a delicious snack of pineapple, fruit juice, water and cookies. The drive back to your hotel is only about 20 minutes.

We had an amazing time rafting in Costa Rica! Mel was fantastic, very experienced, accommodating and truly made the experience unforgettable. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a thrilling adventure!
Great company

Mel and his crew were awesome. The water was high and one of our kids was too small to do the main part of the river, so Mel went out of his way to drive one parent with the little one down to a halfway point and hike with them to a spot where the boat could pick them up, so everyone could at least do some part of the route. Our boat captain Raul was super enthusiastic, entertaining, great with the kids, and a very knowledgeable, strong paddler. The entire experience with CRTA was positive and fun from start to finish. Highly recommend these guys.

From start to finish this was incredible! Damian, Mel and Josh are experts at what they do, all while making the experience feel personalized to you! We could not have asked for better guides! Whether it was the white water, where you got to see beautiful birds all while experiencing some safe and exciting rapids! Or the off the beaten path waterfall, where we were not just the only people there, but we got to do some of the best cliff jumping of our lives! If There is one thing I do know, when I come back to Costa Rica, I’m going on another tour with them!
