TRAVELLER REVIEWS
Rafting Class 2-3 Balsa River
Michelle
December 26,2019
This was my very first time rafting, and it was AWESOME! Initially, I was a bit reserved because I am aware of the dangers of rafting and was unsure about doing it for the first time in a foreign country. Desafio stays true to their motto, "Be safe and have SERIOUS fun". I felt safe the entire time and would definitely book through Desafio again! Our guide was Noel - he made the ride memorable and VERY fun! There was a good mix of class 2-3 rapids as well as moments of calm drifting where we had the chance to see native animals. Overall it was an awesome trip!

Absolutely LOVED our guides. Fully professional but also super entertaining, informative and hysterical and they really took care of our group. They take care of everything from pick up to drop off, were punctual, spoke perfect English and the food at the end was delicious. Definitely seem to know their stuff so I felt safe all the way through and they were able to answer all the questions I had for them about the excursion, the safety of the gear, and about Costa Rica in general. The rappelling was so much fun but like previous commenters said, be prepared to get soaked! I will definitely use this company again for more adventures when I'm back in Costa Rica.

Hello Greg, We are back in the States. I wanted to express my appreciation for the wonderful itinerary you put together for me and my family. I told you we were an adventurous family and you absolutely had that in mind. We loved all of the tours you booked for us. We had THE BEST TIME...we will definitely visit again. A few standout people we met during our tours I would like to mention: Sergio - he drove us from San Jose to La Fortuna, and from Monteverde to Manuel Antonio Johan - Naturalist Guide during the Hanging Bridges tour Santos (and his partner) - Arenal hike Evson - Nighttime frog tour Kevin - Whitewater rafting Keylor (aka “El Chapo Gwapo”) - Rainforest Chocolate Tour ....and so many more, like the paddle board instructor (I just forgot his name)! The 100% Adventura Canopy Zip Lines tour, Crocodile tour and the surfing instruction was excellent! Thanks again for a memorable vacation! Nikki

Gravity Falls Waterfall Jumping

Everyone should do this trip! Although impossible to have done all the trips in Costa Rica, I can't see how this one can be topped. Amazing drive just to GET to the start (how they got the Land Rover up the track I'll never know) and probably the best, most professional (serious when they had to be, fun and crazy as soon as they could) guides I've experienced - ask for Andrés, and pray you get Diego 'Como un mono' tout Drive and jump with you! Serious jumps, great, wild location, and proper, tough jumping - not for the faint hearted! Even some of the rock/path scrambling and hiking were pretty exciting. Plus, beers, fruit, juice, and a full meal all included. Totally worth the money - thanks guys, will recommend you to everyone!

We went on this tour and LOVED it! Be prepared to get WET - we didn’t think we would get as wet. Definitely bring your bathing suit under athletic shorts and shoes you don’t mind getting completely soaked. The staff was attentive and alert, they speak English well. After the rappelling be prepared for a 20-min rugged hike. The food at the end was great. Overall a great tour, just wish I had been more prepared with my clothing!

Absolutely a fantastic experience!!!! Definitely got our adrenalin pumping. Excellent guides who were all very friendly and encouraging. My son had a slight accident on the final jump which necessitated him needing to go to a medical clinic. The professionalism and caring that our guide showed as he personally transported and remained with us at the clinic was exceptional. Thanks a million!!! This company and tour are second to none

Desafio Adventures was great. When we arrived for our tour, we realized that we had accidentally booked our trip for 2018. Desafio was EXTREMELY accommodating and booked us on an upgraded tour. We had a great time with our tour guides Oscar and Brian and had a great lunch when we were done. Highly recommend Desafio. Well run, top notch tour company. Great Job!
