Amazing trip! Did the week of classic Whitewater kayaking trip, and couldn’t have been happier. Picked us up from the airport and dropped us off, the only things we had to think about in between were paddling white water, and making sure we were having fun. They customized the trip for a few other people on our week, making sure they were doing adventurous activity while the rest of us were paddling whitewater. Amazing lodging, even better food. Guides were literally world class, having traveled the globe to excel in their chosen sports (All world class kayakers, mountaineers, and rafters).All gear was in tip top shape. If anyone were looking for a guided trip, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Amazing Vacations CR, literally some of the best guides I’ve ever worked with!

Dan MikalianKayaker

“I’ve gone on week long trips guided by Walter and Arnoldo on four different occasions.  They’re a blast to paddle with. They are personable, knowledgeable, and expert kayakers, able to provide instruction and tips to paddlers of all levels, from basic paddle strokes to surfing skills or creeking moves.  They take the hassle out of paddling overseas as they provide an easy, fun, and safety conscious experience. They know the rivers, where to stay and where to eat. I will definitely paddle with them again!”

Neil WoodwardPennsylvania

“I’m a late in life paddler and have only been paddling for a few years and am a Class III to Class III+/IV- boater. I spent a week with Walter on the rivers of Costa Rica and it was one of the best paddling trips of my life. I always felt comfortable with the guides and they were right there to help if you got into trouble.

The guides were great teachers on the river and great support. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have one of the best paddling trips of their life.”

The learning experience was wonderful. You’ll have a week of intense instruction and I highly recommend the trip to everyone. The country is beautiful and I always felt safe. We had great accommodations. It’s a wonderful experience from top to bottom. I’d go back in a heartbeat and I plan on going back this year.”

Allan BaileyAlpine, Utah

“The very best trip of my life was in Costa Rica with these guides. I went as a single woman and was so comfortable and well-fed. All the guides are knowledgeable about rafting and kayaking technique, and very concerned with your safety. I even got rescued after falling out of my kayak like a dummy! I would recommend these guys for solo adventurers, couples, or big groups. It’s 100% pura vida, all day, every day!”

“By far the most exhilarating vacation I ever took and I highly recommend it to everyone. I experienced the scariest moment of my life on the Tarzan swing. I knew if I didn’t do it then I never would and would forever regret it. Not only did we do many exciting excursions and have great food but the guides were incredible. They were all about safety first then it was as much fun as they could show us. I feel like we made friends for life and honestly, I miss them!”
