Went to the Tenorio River for white water rafting with my daughter and two female cousins. It was our first time doing this activity and we are not experienced in the water. Though our male guide was experienced and knowledgeable regarding the beautiful trees, monkeys, butterflies and birds that we met along the river, he could not control us falling out of the raft (no one could have)! My daughter who was the best swimmer hit her back against a large rock as she fell of the raft. She wasn't hurt badly but was in some pain the rest of the day. Most of the other people who were on different rafts fell into the river as well but no one really complained. I think most people were in awe of the river and in love with the beauty of the park, as I was. I suspect some of the guides (as I saw in photos later), wanted us to experience the excitement of the river since it wasn't deep....and thus did not try so hard to keep the raft from tipping. I think my guide did try his best to keep us from completely tipping over with raft and all since I explained to him repeatedly that the members of our party were not experienced and some of us were shy off retirement, but did not want to expedite that retirement! Many of the other rafts, completely tipped over with every member of the raft. Though I enjoyed the rafting experience, and I am glad I did it, I will have to think it over and over before doing it again. My daughter will certainly try it again (she is 22 and loves a challenge).
