This place is much nicer than many of the larger tourist places near Fortuna, because It is smaller and simpler, ie more authentic. The prices are much more reasonable than elsewhere, and our boat guide, Donette, was simply amazing. You also need to visit the small ant farm and ask for a tour. It was the most interesting part of our entire trip.

Just got back from a student tour with 16 kids and 9 adults. The whole group added this trip to our itinerary after we got there, on our guide’s recommendation. We were not disappointed! The guides were very knowledgeable about local plant and wildlife, and SUPER fun! The water levels made the 3 hour trip class 2 and 3, and many of us were first time rafters. They prepared us well with training, and took great care of us. But it was never boring! They found ways to make the class 2 parts fun and exciting (no spoilers!). Halfway through we stopped for a snack of fresh local fruit to refuel, and did some cliff jumping, then back in to raft some more. There was an awesome professional photo package available for purchase at the end - the paparazzi got over 300 great shots of all the groups throughout the trip. At the end we had a great lunch at the bank of the Sarapiquí river. We even got to see poison dart frogs and other wildlife while waiting to start our trip. Everything about it was perfect, and all for $50/person. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Can I give Aguas Bravas more than 5 stars? Thank you for an amazing experience we will never forget!

We opted for the tame version and did a 2 hour safari float, which had a few rapids so prepare to get wet!
It was great floating down the river, with occasional instructions to paddle!
We floated past some deer and got very close to different birds who didn’t feel threatened by the idiots in the boat.
A great experience followed by a delicious lunch.
