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.

From the moment we reserved, the company was very responsive and accommodating of our needs. We had some unique travel difficulties and they did everything possible to ensure that we could still make it to the raft day and onto our next destination safely.

The rafting itself was amazing! We did a 1-day trip and felt totally comfortable with the river guide we had. He did a wonderful job teaching and coaching us through the runs. I'd never been before, but felt totally safe the entire time. It truly was a blast! The scenery is beautiful and the food was good as well.

I would highly recommend this experience for a full day in Costa Rica.

Thank Kelsi C

Excellent company - impressive from the booking process to the welcome/operations centre at Cairo to the rafting itself.
Pacquare truly a very scenic river with some heavier, serious class 3-4 sections.

Excellent, friendly and professional guides & very good newer equipment.

Best half-day spent in Costa Rica - which is saying a lot.
