Traveler Comments

Orlando was an awesome guide. The post rafting meal was one of the best we had in Manuel Antonio!!

We very much enjoyed this experience. Justin was our tour guide and was very warm and knowledgeable. We also really had a great time before the rafting even began during the 90 minute drive to the river (our driver, Mario, was a wonderful driver in some tough terrain). We enjoyed our time on the river--we did not want it to end!. They welcomed us back with a beautiful fresh fruit display and juice by the truck (thanks, Mario) and then drove us back where they then gave us a yummy lunch. It was a great day!
