The trip started with our professional on time, incredibly friendly and entertaining tour guide, Jeudy who took us to the starting point of the rafting trip where his amazing team showed us exactly what to do and made sure we understood the directions with a little practice exercise. We made a pitstop for a beautifully set up snack break, continued along the gorgeous, scenic river surrounded by tall trees and other variety of fauna. We got to make a cliff jumping pit stop and cruise down the river after we passed the majority of the rápida. We asked for a lunch recommendation and they took us to a really good, affordable rib place where they serve ribs with yucca and plantains. I had the BEST time with Jeudy and his team. I would 100% go back and do it all over again but only if I get to go with them. :)

We had two families of four taking this trip with Jeudy and his team, four adults and four teenage boys. This trip was amazingly fun for all of us. Booking the trip long distance was super easy, Claudia was very responsive both on email and texting via WhatsApp. The 30 min trip from Dominical to the river was super fun, we drove through a bit of jungle and Jeudy and his team pointed out local plants like the Teak that turned out hands red and the kids smeared it on their faces. Jeudy is super careful to make sure everyone had the right sized helmets and life jackets. We all felt safe with him as he and his team are the #1 rafters in Costa Rica. The trip down the river wasn't too scary but was also exciting. It was a great blend of small rapids and down time to splash eachother and jump in. We stopped for a yummy snack midway through and to go to this amazing waterfall. What a trip I'd highly recommend him and his team.

AND we decided to go surfing with him and his team the next day!

My family (kids ages 13,12,10) had the best day on the river with Costa Rica Explorer. We have rafted all over the American west and this ranked up there as one of their favorite rafting excursions. It was fun and challenging enough to stay interesting but very much a family-friendly river and the water was just the right temperature. My kids liked that there were rapids most of the way down with a few spots for floating downriver and a pretty waterfall stop along the way. Our guide Luis was excellent and we felt safe and well cared for during our entire journey. He was also a talented artisan and crafted an intricate cricket out of palm leaves on our 4x4 journey up to the river put in. The cricket made it home with us to NC. We were given a naturalist talk of sorts on the way up to the river with our guide pointing out native plants and interesting facts. The drive to the river was beautiful and felt like a scene out of Jurassic Park. Excellent photos taken with a Canon camera were included in the cost as well as a delicious snack along the river and a hearty lunch on the way home to end the trip. We saw a few toucans and a myriad of birds during the trip. We can highly recommend a day out on the river with Costa Rica Explorer. It's a wonderful way to cool off and view Costa Rica's beautiful rain forests in the company of well trained, friendly guides.

This was our first time rafting and we could not have asked for a better experience! Highly recommend Jake, Chris and Allen. They are experienced and knowledgeable not only about rafting but with describing the various trees in the rainforest and the neighborhoods along the drive. The stop at a local house for Empanadas was a great surprise. They try to be the first group out in the morning to allow more private time on the river and the waterfall; great advantage! The snacks halfway through was very satisfying and the lunch at the end of the trip was good! Jake and Chris enjoy what they do which translates to a super team and an awesome experience!

Six of us rafted the Savegre river rapids under the excellent guidance and control of Jeudy (sp?) and Luis. Their knowledge of the river made things safe but exciting. If you want to try rafting I highly recommend them as guides, you will have a great time.

This was by far the best experience I've ever had on a vacation! I can not say enough good things about the crew of guys we had... they were all amazing and so knowledgeable about everything. We had 9 people with us with our little one being only 5 and they accommodated us all perfectly. Luis was so friendly and sweet with our little girl. Our rafting trip was so much more then rafting. They showed us all kinds of plants and wildlife as well as an amazing waterfall. This trip made us realize why people who come to Costa Rica keep coming back. Great job guys!!

Ok first of all, the explorer team is amazing. Claudia who checked us in was so patient and sweet, Jeudy and David were full of knowledge, energy, and entertainment on our ride to the river and while rafting down the river! Josue kept us all safe and took amazing photos during the entire trip. He made sure we all had the photos before we left the restaurant where we ended. We stopped at a waterfall and the guys made us the yummiest fresh chip dip, right there on the side of the river. The way the team took care of everyone was just really something special. 10 outta 10!

I went rafting with Jeudy and Jacob on 12/7/22 and had a proper blast. There’s really no better way to experience a river than by rafting down it, and no better people to be on a raft with. The guys are super fun, have tons of experience, and are truly working at their passion. Jeudy is verifiably one of the best rafting guides in the world as captain of Costa Rica’s whitewater rafting team. The mid river snack was fresh and excellent and the casados afterward even better. Based on my experience I believe this is truly a properly run, customer first business that will not disappoint. I’m sure the other adventures they offer are of the same quality.
Cant recommend this opportunity enough.

Jeudy and his team are amazing! My wife, 9 year old son, and I had a fantastic time rafting the category 2s and 3s on the Savegre river. Jeudy is the captain of the Costa Rican rafting team and his experience rafting and guiding is immediately obvious. He took the time to educate us on some of Costa Rica's flora and fauna on the drive in and while on the river and answered pretty much any question my son could come up with.

They did a great job reading our energy and tailoring the experience to what my family was looking for. It was the perfect way to spend the day, and I'd recommend it to anyone!

I could go on, but seriously... Stop questioning and just book the trip. You won't regret it! They are amazing.

Our guides Jeudy & Luiz we’re awesome. They showed us many things on the way to the rafting adventure before we even started, and we’re very professional and fun during the rafting tour. They were mellow for our less experienced family in our group and dialed it up for the adrenaline junkies in my family. A great experience for all, and amazing photos we got from the pro photographer at the end made I’m the experience even better. I will recommend them to anyone i know who is heading down to Costa Rica!
