We used Desafaio for many of our tours including, ATV, rafting, and spending time at their beautiful property. Our afternoon at Sarapiqui was wonderful. Moises was our tour and rafting guide. We had so much fun, he's a great teacher and has so much knowledge! We enjoyed the fun class 3 rapids then enjoyed a great lunch and transferred to Manual Antonio. If you plan on booking tours while in Costa Rica look no further! Pura Vida

Service is great but whitewater experience is mediocre
Apr 2021
Our guide was nice and fun. The roundtrip drive to the river was close to 3 hours (30 minutes for picking everyone up from the other hotels and then a little over an hour to get to the river each way) for just an hour of actual time on the water. We went during a week a lot of rain so Desafio said the water would be faster and higher than most typical Class 2&3. We did experience a few rapids but not many and it was overall a very slow ride. We stopped midway for a long break to eat a pineapple and then rafted for a little longer before we got to the final destination. I would recommend this for anyone that has never rafted before. Otherwise you will be disappointed. It is a lot of time for very little time and excitement on the water.

Professional and dependable for tours and transport
Dec 2019 • Family
We were 2 families with teenagers visiting CR for the first time. We did not want to drive and wanted to make all your arrangements before we arrived there. I found Desafio through a friend who took one tour through them and contacted them. Our agent Jason worked closely with us to make the itinerary and told us what was possible in our timeline, best places for each activity and gave us a great price!! It was reassuring from the first moment we saw their driver waiting for us at SJO. We were delayed by La Paz waterfalls shuttle, but Desafio leaited for us for the fantastic Sarapiqui whitewater rafting. Our guide Pablo pointed out so many animals while rafting! The vans used for transport were in excellent condition. We were delayed again at Selvatura zip line and Desafio was happy to move our Butterfly garden and Sky Adventure to the next day with no change fees although they were not the tour operator. The Arenal full day tour was amazing! The food served at their restaurant was one of the best meals we had in CR. On New Year’s Eve, they accommodated our request to go to a restaurant that was out of the way for a small fee so that we could enjoy a delicious Indian dinner. I would highly recommend Desafio to anyone for their professional, caring and flexibility service. They made our trip very enjoyable, stress free and safe. Pura vida!!

Amazing animals
Apr 2019 • Couples
We booked this trip since we were in Costa Rica to see animals, and we definitely achieved our goal! Francisco was amazingly knowledgeable and had was able to point out things that we wouldn't have otherwise seen. He was also able to answer our questions about the animals we were seeing - as a trained biologist I really appreciated his insights.
