Thank you for reviewing Guachipelin AustinAdventurer. Tubing at Guchipelin is popular among our guests and personally I think its a lot of fun, and with the sun, the cool water is great. There are other activities that are not in the One Day of Adventure package, like mountain bike and canyoning, maybe next time. Pura Vida !!!! More

We were staying in Playa Negra, so we made the 2 hr drive to Rincon de la Vieja for the day. It was very fun, and we enjoyed all the activities we did on the Adventure Tour.

Thank you BeckaNicole for your review. You are right , experienced riders don't have the best experience in groups, not the same on a private tour, and that is an option.

This was the favorite day of vacation, by far. The scenery at the zip line and whitewater tubing are absolutely stunning. Words cannot adequately describe the landscape. The tubing was the best part for all of our party. Do not believe the negative reviews with regard to safety. If you like adventure this is the tour for you. On the... More

We have just done the taster tour, horse riding, tubing, canopy tour and the hot springs. We started with the horse ride to the river. I have never been on a horse but the horse I had knew exactly what it was doing and where it was going and needed no direction from me. Next came the tubing and what... More

We did it all at Hacienda Guachipelin; we zip lined the course with amazing views of the canopy and rivers. We rode horses for about 30 minutes, basically just a regular trail ride, to get you from one spot to another, but then we did the tubing on 2 & 3 class rapids. What a blast!!! Guides are very attentive... More

We arrived mid-morning so only signed up for river tubing and zip line. We did not know that we would also get the lunch so that was a nice surprise. The river tubing was fun but at times a little scary. Apparently the day before they did not offer the tubing due to the amount of water in the river.... More

This is for the river tubing only. My children are strong swimmers, and we have all rafted Class 2 and 3 rapids before. We all surf, paddle board, and raft in the Pacific and in the Sierra Nevada. The river tubing was marketed as class 2 and 3. The day we were there they were Class 3 and 4. The... More

Thank you Eric R for your comments. Tubing is one of the most visited tours in the area. We have operated for more than 15 years now. There are occasions when the water gets a little rough and there is a chance to get a scratch. For Guachipelin, safety is a priority, but remember that this is an extreme adventure.... More

Horseback ride was lame, but the rest was fantastic. Tubing Class III rapids was the best. Zip line surprised to the positive as it wound through canyons and a river - beautiful.

We enjoyed ourselves and the staff worked so hard! I do feel that on the zip lines there were too many people in a group, which was unsafe and the staff rushed us through it. I have zip lined in four different places before. The tubing was way more intense than I expecting, but the staff saved my two nieces... More

The set-up for this multi-faceted tour is really prime for greatness and life long memories but unfortunately the staff and other tour guides will tell you that mgmt is understaffing the tours to the detriment of guests and service and safety are on the decline Imagine 40 guests with 5-6 guides.

Michael Y thanks for your comments . We have to disagree on the staff accompanying a group. For example,tubing , the least guides that are sent with a group of 35 guests is 5 guides,but if the water is high with that many guests at least 7 o 8 guides will be sent. Never, under any circumstance , 3 guides... More
