Muy divertido !

We had an exceptional time in the white water rafting. We are a family of four and we had one raft with a guide. Both me and my wife don’t know swimming. The river was around level 4. Our guide made sure that we had great fun and none of us fell out of the raft. Also, when the water was calm my kids swam in the water. We had a great time. Our guide was Vladimir and he was also very well educated in cultures around the world... (read more)

This was the best activity we did in Costa Rica. I was very nervous at first, but our guide, Esteban was a true pro, kept everyone safe and we all had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this to any first time rafters. It was a blast!

My wife was frightened for the idea of doing such an adventure river activity, but, the security the guides gave and the correct equipment Desafio used made her become sure of herself. We had a great time on our first river adventure. We booked through Fortunawelcome.com where they indicated us that Rafting classes 2 and 3 were good for beginners; I couldn’t agree more.
