Overview

We are a boutique tour company that is locally owned and operated. We pride ourselves on keeping our groups small to medium in size and avoid taking out large groups so that we can make our tours more personal and unique. This is a safe rafting tour which is great for people that want to experience a tropical river without driving too far. The starting point is only a 30 minute ride from Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

The Upper Naranjo "Chorro" section is a beautiful mini canyon and is great a great option for dry season rafting (Dec. 15th - May 15th). The rapids are class 3 and 3+ and are perfect for the entire family. Not only will you raft past jungle waterfalls, there are places in the canyon where you can float just with your life vest in the calm waters. There is also a opportunity for some cliff jumping from 5, 10 and 15 feet is you so desire.

At the end of the tour you will be served a fruit snack of pineapple, fruit juice, water and cookies. The drive back is only 20 minutes.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

First off, Costa Rica Tropical Adventures are the cream of the crop! Unlike the bigger tour companies, these guys treat you like family. They were extremely communicative replying to WhatsApp messages immediately, answered my calls to coordinate pick up, and entertained (all my dumb) questions. Above all, they spoke 100% English. On top of that, they were willing to drive to a pharmacy along the way to pick up Dramamine for my other half (which we later learned he didn't really need it).

The most important lesson I learned from these guys is "safety first." Rain took place before the day of our tour causing the upper Naranjo River to be dangerous. Damian called to advise that they could not, in good conscience, take anyone to these waters and offered the lower section of the river (which was not as tumultuous) and refunded the difference. The bigger guys would've taken tourists to the upper river regardless, which would've been disastrous, causing casualties. CRTA knows the rivers, they respect nature, and lookout for their passengers. Okay, enough about that...

We absolutely had an EPIC time with Mel (our guide), Joshua (our safety guy who would kayak before us and fetch anyone who falls off the raft--luckily no one fell out), and Ceidy who prepared a scrumptious snack. This was the BEST part of our trip to Costa Rica.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, stay away from the bigger tour companies and go local. These guys are amazing!

I was so scared to do the rafting at first. But Damian really made me feel safe. So now I definitely would do it again. It’s really the best activity to do it with family or friends :))
We 100% recommend it!!
