Owner description: Rios Tropicales is an eco-adventure company that operates throughout Costa Rica. We offer adventure activities that take advantage of Costa Rica’s unique variety of environments: whitewater rafting, multisport activities that feature kayaking,canoeing, hiking, and cycling, family adventures, cultural encounters, nature and wildlife tours, and “volun-tourism”. Our mission, to share the rivers, natural resources and culture of Costa Rica while sharing conservation values, has not changed since we began in 1985. Rios Tropicales was established by native Central Americans, El Salvadorian Rafael Gallo and Costa Rican Fernando Esquivel, whose deep connection with the region and culture are apparent in every aspect of the company.

Our family of 6 - 2 adults and 4 kids from 15 to 21 booked a 2 day trip with Rios Tropicales. We were met by ENZO our guide to give us our full safety briefing before setting off. Wow it was truly amazing - surfing the first day for around 90 mins to reach our overnight destination arriving 31 Dec. Enzo and the other guides prepared a spread equal to any of the 4 star hotels we had stayed in.... The following day was more challenging for rafting however Enzo assured us along the way that we were in safe hands. It was a trip of a lifetime and one that we will remember for a long time to come. Rios Tropicales took great safety measure and Enzo you inspired us all to return again one day....... Thank you for our special memories of New Years 2017...
