  • Very professional and great equipments. Stephen was our guide and it was a lot of fun. They were able to tune the rafting experience for us (younger and adventure couples) with more bumpy rides. We had fruits at one of the stops, and cold beer at the end! We did the most challenging raft which was level 3-4 Sarapiqui river. Highly recommend for the more adventurous
  • Amazing experience! They picked us up at our hotel and we took the shuttle with a few other families to the rafting location. Carlos was a GREAT guide with a good sense of humor. We saw a sloth, frog and iguana! He was very informative and loved getting to know us. After the rafting we had a great meal with all the guides and got to learn about how they make cane sugar! Highly recommend this company! great time!
  • We had a great day rafting with Wave excursions. Everything is expertly organised, transport, rafting, lunch. The guides are very knowledgeable and competent and make the whole experience a great day out for all groups on the river. Just the right level of thrills on the water while making sure everyone feels safe. Highly recommended.
  • The guides went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience Wonderful people ,great water , We were able to stop and watch the howler monkeys in tree canopy Wonderful lunch Great lunch
  • Such a great experience! Don't know how i have gone my whole life without doing this! Definitely recommend everyone to do this in their lifetime once. The staff was amazing! Extremely experience and helpful. The river is beautiful with a lot of wildlife around you as we saw a few sloths and a lizard up in the trees. Definitely recommend!
