Our day white water rafting here was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. These guys go the extra mile to make sure everyone is comfortable and entertained. There was never a dull moment with this crew. Highly recommend for everyone!

We booked Tukan Tours to take us from Jaco to Savegre River for some white water rafing. Our guides and driver was great, Didn't know that some parts of this river were class 4 rapids. In short, our raft flipped and everyone took a spill down the river. It was horrific and I felt humbled after the incident. Overall, I... More

Clean, safe, amazing, funny and wild experience with one of the most important companies in Manuel Antonio. No better way to enjoy this river keeping natural status of the enviroment.

This was fun activity and close to Uvita. The crew was not the greatest. They were a bit cocky. When we went, the water was relatively low, so we had class I-III rapids, not class IV, which was good for our family. The guides make it sound like they usually try to flip the raft at least once, which we... More

this is a perfect river for newbie rafters. It has some great bumps, but they're essentially all followed by a flat spot, so should you come out of the raft, you're in calm water almost immediately. Others have remarked about how beautiful it is, including the stop at the waterfall. True, true! Tour guides were great!

These guys were awesome! on the drive up to the rapids, they would stop and pick various spices along the road. it was fun, educational, and we were there before you knew it. The guides "performed" for us and they also put out snacks for us with quite an elaborate setting!

Along with a number of students we rafted the Savegre with Dominical Surf Adventures. They were great guides and provided our group a super day on the river. Guides very knowledgable; lunch was first class. Raft it while you can as the government is planning on damming the river--a real tragedy. todd miner Cornell University

Not too huge, not at all small...juuuusssstttt right. We used Quepoa Expeditions (Brad Watts) for this most-of-a-day trip. I've seen photos of how other companies do this trip, and this was better. Near the end of the rainy season, water levels were big and beefy with seven or eight Class IIIs that come at you in a nice sequence. The... More
