White Water Rafting, Costa Rica: 20 reviews and 26 photos
We went white water rafting with Lost Iguana tours. It rocked! We were there during the rainy season, so the rivers are up and raging! Class II, III and a couple of IV+ rapids. Don't be scared though, the guides are friendly, speak English, knowledgable about their job and the flora and fauna, and ours were really funny. No one fell out of our raft, but a guy in another raft did. You really should go rafting. I don't know if you can during the dry season. It was a little expensive (about US $70/person for a half day), but worth it as far as I'm concerned. They stop about half way and feed you lunch. Take a waterproof camera with you and ask one of the guides to take some shots of you. Very important, wear Teva sandles or the equivalent. Thong type sandals could fall off and sneakers will get soaked. Tip the guys at the end of the trip if they are good. At least with Lost Iguana Tours, you can leave valuables in the bus and not worry about them. They have a driver that stays with the bus the whole time. Here's a hint to save you some money: Take the public bus (costs US 25 cents!) into Quepos and book the tour yourself. The hotels will book it for you, but they usually get a slice of the pie. Avoid the middleman. The guide companies have a bus that comes to all the hotels and picks people up and drops them back off.
Directions: Downtown Quepos.
