I came back home from Costa Rica feeling like I had lived an adventure thanks to Dinghy Expeditions. I met the owners and partners incidentally and am forever grateful for that chance encounter. Both owners Diana and Ahndres personalized and tailored my outings to my exact requests. I wanted physical activity that was off the beaten path while supplying an ample amount of wildlife. They took me to two destinations, Canyon Negro and Rio Celest, transportation was comfortable, snack and refreshments were provided, and the guides were extremely knowledgeable. I saw over 50 caymans, a large variety of exotic birds, gar fish, monkeys, an eyelash Viper, in their natural habitat and in disturbed by our presence. The guides were not only experts on botanical and animal wildlife they had a mindset of using resources that supported the local people and environmental preservation. It felt amazing to be informed about the Earth and know we were minimizing our carbon footprint while doing so. One of the best traveling experiences I've ever had. A must do!!!

My husband and I visited La Fortuna in February, and by far the best day of our Costa Rica vacation was on the Balsa River with Dinghy Expeditions! Diana and Ahndres were so helpful, friendly, and accommodating. They created a personalized trip for us based on our individual whitewater experience and requests. They were very knowledgeable about the nature and wildlife of the area, as well as the river itself. We would highly recommend Dinghy Expeditions to anyone looking for a fun, customized adventure with great guides!
