Daniel Dijkman
This was an awesome trip down the river. We went on a day after a lot of rain. It was a bit tricky but also not too dangerous for the kids. The guides were super friendly and engaged. Highly recommended!

We had a great experience tubing down the Arenal. Bryan and his partner were amazing.
The tubing was pretty epic, different than in the states. The current got more advanced as we went, but that made it fun. We were in the water two hours or less so that was the only disappointment. I am used to tubing three hours or so. If would of been much more fun if it lasted longer. The tour guide, Julio, was an awesome tour guide.

We had so much fun in this tour. It is definitely a must if you are traveling to Costa Rica. It is not an extreme tour but enjoyable for the family or group of friends. I found the price a little excessive though. It is probably worth thirty five dollars not fifty. But I don't regret buying the tour.
Excellent tour!! Tubing down the river with a few rapids. The safety was number one (thanks Melena and Miguel Angel).
