  • The best experience of rafting that I could have. We went with my spouse and my 11 year old daughter and we had fun in full with all the security that could offer us. The guides have lots of experience and all the good vibes. Many thanks to our Orlando guide that we assure you the best fun and confidence. Insurance would make it!

  • It was an amazing experience for a first time rafter like me. They took extra care and made sure that I don't get scared. The guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable both about the water as well as about the fauna and Flora. Having vegetarian options in lunch was great, farm visit and especially to get to know so many varieties of herbs was amazing! I definitely recommend them to anyone who wants to try rafting, they are great people! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
  • I was kinda dragged into this event because my Husband was dying to go, but it was (by far) the best activity we participated in for our whole trip! It was so much fun and the guides were amazing! Especially Warner and Orlando! I loved the fact that it was a family based business and after an awesome rafting experience they take you back to their farm and feed you a very tasty meal and give you a tour of their farm! I definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back!
  • Great, funny and knowledgeable guides Jose and Elvis ensured to make a safe yet super fun experience for everyone! Not only the rafting was great, the lunch and educational tour at finca Don Juan was a very nice addition to the tour. Would definitely recommend. It was overall an awesome experience!
  • My group and I had a great time with Costa Rica Descents rafting and touring their farm. My guide Jose was funny and energetic, but also made us feel safe during the entire trip down the river. He had us do some fun poses for the photographer and pointed out cool birds and trees along the way. After an exciting trip rafting, we were treated to a delicious lunch, learned a bit about organic farming in Costa Rica and had a demonstration of sugar cane juice extraction with samples of the juice and shots of the fermented version. Together the activities took up most of the day and were well worth the price. I would highly recommend Costa Rica Descents to anyone looking for some adventure around La Fortuna.
  • Really enjoyed the Class V rapids with Carlos! Great adrenaline rush and Carlos was a really fun guide. We had a very thoughtful safety kayaker, but his name escapes me. The lunch was good and really enjoyed the tour around the organic farm. Really accommodating and friendly staff!
