What we provide -
Private Trips - We are not one of the giant companies out of San Jose that herd hundreds of tourists down the river like cattle. We only do smaller, more exclusive trips so that our clients get an up close and personal experience on the river.
Guides - Basically, it's your guide that will make the difference in your trip. We have the best guides in the country for one simple reason, we pay well. We get the most experienced, best trained, highly educated guides because we can hand pick them from all the available guides in the country. Our guides meet or, in most cases, exceed the required certifications. All guides are certified in CPR, First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, and Swift Water Rescue. We carry extensive first aid kits in all vehicles, rafts and on all excursions. These measures are not required by the Costa Rican Government, but are the standards of Green Frog Rafting.
Equipment - Green Frog Rafting uses only the best rafts, lifejackets, helmets, etc. Additionally, our vehicles are new, well maintained and comfortable.
Meals - Most of our excursions include meals. The Pacuare River two-day, for example, provides lunch, dinner (and our famous Happy Hour) the first day and breakfast and lunch on the second day. Our river meals have become legendary over the years and some of our clients claim the meals with us are among the best of their whole trip!
Transportation (including shuttles) - Green Frog Rafting provides transportation to the river from almost anywhere in Costa Rica - fees will depend on where and number of clients.
Other Activities - Green Frog Rafting can help to plan and reserve other activities and accommodations for your trip before or after your white water rafting trip. Check out Green Frog Adventures for a full list of other activates we would be happy to set up for you.
