We stayed in Quepos/Manuel Antonio for a week and Damian was an awesome tour guide. We booked a rafting tour with Costa Rica Tropical Adventures fairly last minute (a few days before), and Damian was very accommodating and set up a great (and affordable) rafting tour. He stayed in touch with us throughout the week and picked us up at our airbnb with all of the equipment we needed. I had never rafted before and had a blast. He was knowledgable of the river and even stopped the raft a few times to show us fossils and swim in a waterfall. He does like to start early which is great for early risers, because there is no one else on the river at that time. For those that like to sleep in, he also does late morning tours to get in before the afternoon rush. On the way home, he brought us to a biodynamic spice farm in the mountains where we got to see a bit of the 50-60 acre farm and try some spices, sugar cane and chocolate. Definitely recommend Costa Rica Tropical Adventures to those visiting and we look forward to booking another tour with Damian in the future.

I would highly recommend going through Damien and Costa Rica Tropical Adventures. They picked our group up (8 of us) in a van and drove us to raft the El Chorro river. Small rafts, 3, 3 and 2 people plus the guides in 3 rafts. All the guides were super friendly and knowledgeable. In the middle of the rafting we stopped at a secret waterfall and pool for swimming. Then near the end one of the guides climbed a tree to hook up a rope so we and the kids could tarzan into the river. SO much fun.

We did the half day rafting with the family ( 4 adults and two kids age 10 and 7) and we all absolutely loved it. It was our first time rafting and Damien and his colleagues made us all feel very relaxed and extremely safe at all times. All of the guides were very knowledgeable, professional and they were all excellent with the kids especially as my 7 year old was very nervous initially. We also paid for the photos and these were all absolutely brilliant quality ,a great memento of the experience. I would definitely recommend the rafting as a great fun family activity and would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone .

Our group booked an excursion with Costa Rica Tropical Adventures for their Nayauca Falls Waterfall Hike. We had a blast with Damian and Mel, our guides. First, they picked us up in a comfortable shuttle and we immediately felt their warmth and love for what they do. We were treated to a fun and informative conversation about the Manuel Antonio area and it’s history. We enjoyed a gorgeous drive through the jungle and countryside on our way to the waterfall. We arrived at our destination and hiked the rest of the way to the most amazing and picturesque site; a two tiered waterfall! Our guides’ number one priority was our safety and made sure we safely navigated the terrain. We spent the most amazing time swimming in the natural pool at the base of the waterfall, jumping off rocks and relaxing while eating delicious Costa Rican pineapple. Another highlight was stopping at the Beautiful beach town of Dominical for lunch and shopping. What a perfect day in paradise with Costa Rica Tropical Adventures, and our new friends Damian and Mel! This excursion is highly recommended and will be a highlight of your trip!

This was probably my favorite part of my trip to Costa Rica! Damian was an absolutely wonderful guide. He was so knowledgeable and made us feel completely safe climbing up and down (and jumping off!) the waterfalls. I highly recommend using this company and I will certainly be using them again when on my next trip.
