Green Rivers Rafting & Kayaking Company

Reviewed By mackiwi2015 - Linlithgow, United Kingdom

We did white the white water rafting trip with the Green Rivers team in June. The 3 of us had never been rafting before. Mariano (aka Rasta) and Ralph were a great team - very professional and we felt safe in their hands while at the same having such a laugh. Being a smaller operator they were able provide it much more personal. Would whole heartedly recommend a rafting trip with them!

Finca Sura

Reviewed By Rachel R

We visited this charming place on a very rainy day in February. The owner of the farm took us on a tour, after serving us with delicious pineapple juice and coffee and although he did not speak English we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. We saw lots of Costa Rican wildlife, including Iguanas and frogs, and even fed the Tilapia fish in the ponds. We were given our very own pineapple to take back to the hotel and at the end we enjoyed the juice of fresh sugar cane and ginger, which was delicious. A lovely afternoon out, even in the heavy tropical rain!

A man of this organization (official one ?) told me to come back the day later at 14:00... no one. I came back next day 9:00... no one. So the 2 trips have been cancelled. I think only groups interest them. So if you like nature and want to make a trip, choose another company.

Sarapiqui Tours

Reviewed By HappyTravelersMass - Massachusetts

Luis Vargas was our tour guide for 13 days in January. He took a small group around Costa Rica to visit the various ecological zones in the country to see nature at it's best. He has an amazing wealth of information when it comes to the flora and fauna of his country. He also knows how to make a tour not only interesting, but fun. He had us rolling in the isles with laughter many times. I would not hesitate to book him for any kind of birding, nature or sports activities in Costa Rica. He is one of the best tour guides I have ever been with.

We saw anhinga's, kingfisher, wood stork, bare-throated tiger heron, snowy, egret, green ibis, black vulture, Turkey vulture, spotted sandpiper, broad billed motmot, Yellow throated toucan and many more birds. Bring your notebook and get ready to identify some birds.
