As of March 16, 2020, the Costa Rican government has closed all points of entry to foreigners to Costa Rica. We are keeping our staffing levels at a minimum to assist clients in this mass evacuation and process credit notes to clients who have future reservations. Should you have an emergency, please contact (506)8904-6809.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected Costa Rica, but we have an advanced and modern health care system and universal health care for our citizens with a well-organized and centralized government, so as a country, we have been taking considerable precautions for travelers and citizens.
We wish all travelers and fellow world citizens much health — Be SAFE and have serious FUN (at home!).

Go rafting on the way from La Fortuna or from Monteverde! (or vice versa) to Samara Beach. Take a scenic drive along windy roads to get to Guanacaste and then travel on isolated, rustic backroads, followed by a rugged, 4x4 ride to the the river put-in at the bridge over the Río Tenorio. As part of our People+Planet=Prosperity project, we have created a public river entrance for use of the local public with government approval.
You’ll receive a thorough safety briefing and get fitted for your equipment -- helmets, lifejackets and paddles. Then you will practice with your guide and enjoy a beautiful 2.5-hour rafting trip along the arrid and impressive canyon of the Tenorio River in Costa Rica’s picturesque Guanacaste province. Get over 20 fun, exciting rapids, a fresh fruit snack, hike to a local waterfall, and plenty of wildlife along the way like iguanas, tropical birds and monkeys.
This unique rafting tour finishes with a thrilling waterfall drop of over 6 feet!!
After the rafting tour you will do a quick hike to the 4x4 vehicle and drive out of this isolated, unspoiled region of Costa Rica. Then you will have time for a delicious lunch, use the changing rooms and then we'll head out for the beach. You will be taken to your hotel in the Samara Beach area in time for a glorious Pacific sunset!
