The river is perfect for tubing. Be comfortable with the possibility of being tossed off your tube in a rapid. It's exciting but not for everyone. Joe from Austin Texas is one of the nicest, most knowledgable, most helpful fun guides we have ever met. Can't say enough about him. The other guides were good also. Here are the cautions:... More

Great trip today down the Naranja/ El Chorro today, wild ride with great guides. We've rafted in class V's before in the states but really nothing like these. This was fast and technical, and a bit terrifying at times,i.e. swimming the Chorro rapid after flipping! but with the great guiding and perservance we did make it through this amazing section...

We had the half day class 4 Rapids on the naranjo river. It was totally awesome! Our guide, John, was fantastic and was very clear in his instructions, knew the course well, and kept composure and regained control when we got into a bit of trouble in the water. You'll definitely be exhausted after the course so bring a change... More

Originally we tried to book the El Chorro section of the river for more excitement however it was not open. So we decided to do the Savegre river part anyway. I was told this tour would last four hours so we made plans for the afternoon. Then we arrived at the office and they said we had lunch, then realized... More

Went on this tour with my family (kids 17, 20 & 22). After ziplining, repelling down waterfalls, hiking volcanoes and rafting class 3/4 rapids, I was worried this tour was going to be a let down. I was wrong! To our surprise it was quite a bit more than a lazy river. Had some nice restful floats down the river... More
