Tour information

The begin of this Tour will be when we pick you up from your hotel in La Fortuna; then, we are going to drive toward the town of San Miguel, Sarapiquí, where the river trip will start. Along the way we will pass through towns such as Muelle, Aguas Zarcas and Venecia, the drive takes about 1 hour.

Once we arrive at the river, our specialized guides will give you a complete briefing, including the techniques we utilize in rafting and the safety measures to follow during the adventure. The river put in is in San Miguel, the upper section of the Sarapiqui River, where the class IV rapids are located; then we will end in a section of Class III rapids.

We will take a break to enjoy some tropical fruits along the river banks.

Super good staff, great day. We had a blast with Jason!
The guides, the river, the lunch were all great. The caveat is that the tour they took us on was 3 miles of river and 2 hours shorter than was promised, so we paid $90 for a $70 (max) experience. If they hadn't cut the river portion short, it would have been well worth the money. I'm not sure why we actually let them get away with this, as it was a significant breach of contract. They should h ave explained why they did it and stood by with $20 bills refunding what we overpaid. So I would say be sure to clarify up front, and hold them to it. Otherwise, a great experience!...

We booked this trip through Fortuna Welcome and not only did we get a great price, but it was less expensive than other travel companies I looked into. The trip was excellent and they booked it with Defasio Adventure Company. I was a little worried booking a class III-IV since my kids (teenagers ages 16 and 14) had only river rafted once before, but turns out I worried for nothing. We hit som e fun, thrilling rapids and the kids did just fine because we had a great guide- Mosis (I probably spelled his name wrong) who knew what he was doing and made us feel safe. He was very knowledgeable. Another guide, Ramel, who gave us the safety lesson and entertained us on the bus ride to the river made the trip extra fun. Half way we stopped for a break and had fruit. This was the best pineapple and watermelon I have ever had. After the trip, they take you to a cool place on the same river and we were provided lunch. The lunch was delicious. Some of the best tasting food we had on our entire Costa Rica Trip. There is nothing negative I can say about the trip other than I wish it could have lasted longer because we had so much fun. I highly recommend this trip.... (read more)

We truly enjoyed our rafting experience with your company. The guide (Daniel) was fun to be with and very professional and understanding. The river, although low, gave us all the excitement we were anticipating.
