  • Recently went rafting on Rio Balsa and did a hike of Rio Celeste with Desafio - Could not speak highly enough of the excursions! Roland was an amazing guide during white-water rafting. He ensured our entire family enjoyed their time on the river with a great sense of humor! On our Rio Celeste tour - Antonio went above and beyond making sure we had a great experience. He continuously provided facts regarding the scenery and made sure we learned as much as possible about the area during the excursion. On both tours we saw a wide variety of wildlife in the beautiful Costa Rican forests - including sloths, snakes and monkeys. Overall, could not speak highly enough of Desafio! I would highly recommend the company to anyone and would do excursions/transportation with Desafio again in a heartbeat.
  • We did the white water rafting with this company, it was a very good experience. The guides were really good and you have to leave all your baggage in the van when doing the rafting. We had our passports in our bags but everything went really smooth. They offered pineapple and water melon at the end of rafting and it was delicious, dont miss the opportunity to take a bite. After the rafting they took us for lunch and it was local food. It was very delicious. We would love to do it again.
  • Fun group of guides on our whitewater rafting experience. They make everyone feel safe, training on shore before going in. Accidents can happen, but it seemed like safety was the main concern both before and during the action. Spotters in kayaks are with the boats and other boats generally stay within sight of each other. A brief fruit snack stop at the side of the river where a few random cattle were stopped for a drink was welcome before the last few rapids. A little chance to chat with other adventurers or just have a stretch to better enjoy the last few minutes on the water. The rapids you face will depend which river you ride.
  • I cannot say enough nice things about this company. We bought two tours through Desafio. 1) Canyoning and 2) ziplining in monteverde. 1) Canyoning - this is a must do adventure while in costa rica. The guides are extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. We were able to do rapple many waterfalls. post adventure you are provided a lunch which is unforgivable. it was by far the best meal we had while we were in costa rica. 2) Zip lining - the drive to get upto monteverde is quite treacherous. Its dirt and gravel roads. I would be extremely careful if it is raining. Once you get up there though you realize that the adventure is worth the drive and time. The zip lines were great with amazing views of the rainforest. the tanzan swing was freaking amazing. lastly Greg helped us book our tour and gave us a great deal. Thank you for the memories.
  • We did the Hanging Bridges nature walk and it was fantastic!! We saw a coati, agouti, eyelash viper, tarantula, hummingbirds, a couple species of motmot (including a nesting pair), and a tarantula hawk (which I hope never to see again). Our guide, Joshua, was very knowledgeable, and excellent at spotting via telescope. He was also very adept at taking camera-phone pictures through the telescope, so got some amazing pics. The walk was not too difficult (and I am very unfit, so for someone of a healthy weight/fitness it would probably rank about a 4/10... I get winded on two flights of stairs and would call it a 7/10). At the end of our hike we were provided some drinks, as well as some pineapple and watermelon which were very juicy and sweet. Would highly recommend to anyone!
