My experience with Dinghy Expeditions was amazing! I learned so much about the primary forests of Costa Rica and its inhabitants while cruising along the rapids of the Sarapiqui River. Ahndres and Diana were excellent guides and knew the river well. We had so much fun, I highly recommend!

This experience had it all! The rafting was a blast, the guides made it safe and exciting to travel along the beautiful river. They were very talented and extremely knowledgable about the river, local history, and surrounding wildlife. It was fun, exciting, and safe!

Thank you for sharing with the world that this experience has it all. We here at Dinghy Expeditions, could not agree with you more. It means so much to hear that you had an amazing rafting day with us and that you took back much more than the excitement of running rapids, like understanding the local and natural history more, seeing wildlife, having fun and most importantly feeling safe. That, I can credit to the experience and training of our guides and the beautiful Sarapiqui river. You make our job a joy! Thank you for being part of that. PURA VIDA, Diana
