I can NOT think of one negative thing regarding our experience with Arenal rafting. We did the whitewater rafting tour on the Balsa river. The rapids on the Balsa were a level 2 and 3, which was just right since we didn't want something to extreme but enough to get an adrenal rush. Our guide was Roberto, and he made our whole experience fun, thrilling, funny, and crazy. Encantamos como estaba muy loco con nosotros:) We got to swim in the Balsa for part of the trip, stopped on the side of the river to eat fresh fruits, and flipped in the river per our request. Our guide made sure none of us got hurt and were safe the whole time. Lunch was sooooooo good, we ate fresh talapia with beans and veggies, they had other options such as steak and chicken. And to make things even better, we had a photographer capturing all the moments during our trip and got to purchase them for a good price. Our bus guide showed us sloths on our journey to the Balsa and provided us with fun facts about costa rica. Oh, and every single guide was very well experienced, one of the guides is representing costa rica for rafting. Overall, rafting with Arenal rafting is a must if you want to go whitewater rafting as a family or with your spouse, they accommodated for all ages!!!! If ya'll want to see pics, I will be posting some of the pictures that the guide took of us from our trip on my instagram @thetravelinghijabista.

THANK YOU Arenal Rafting staff and ROBERTO for making our experience AAAAAAAaaamazing!

Our family of 14 just rafted yesterday with AR and it was great service from beginning to end. Danny did an excellent job communicating via email with me. So much included: pick up, delicious fruit stop, excellent lunch at a local restaurant, and adventures and laughs that you can relive forever with photos (extra, but worth the $) Our group was divided into two groups. The young kids were safe and had a great time with a few adults on one raft. The other raft was filled with adrenaline junkies who got the more adventurous ride thanks to our guide Oscar. Don’t hesitate- go rafting with these guys!
