Picked up from hotel in San Jose at 5:30 am to avoid crazy city traffic. 2 hour trip to main lodge ...we were fed a basic Costa Rica breakfast at main lodge. Then took a 30 minute ride to starting point. We have done a lot of whitewater rafting in Canada (ie kicking horse) but this was the best river. Very little down time... rapid after rapid. Class 3 and 4. We were soaked but the water was crystal clear and warm. We paddled through a few waterfalls, we jumped out of the boat and floated down the river, the scenery was beautiful... my face hurt afterwards from 3 hours of smiling. Our guide was very serious, a bit arrogant and a bit unfriendly and we paddled more than any other raft but we saw that most of the other guides were playful and fun ... we still had a blast and made our own fun ... and we felt safe and in good hands. Only giving it 4 stars because the end of trip, we had to haul the boat up a steep bank with loose rocks ... I twisted my leg and stubbed my toes, another lady fell ... this needs to be fixed
