This was our first rafting experience and I am sooo glad we went with Dinghy Expeditions. We were picked up at our hotel on time by Andres and Piqui. We were not aware of Piqui, the rafting dog, but we were ok with this experience. This definitely was a first for us and made the

Hola and thank you for rafting with us! Yes, our pictures are the most reasonably priced in town. The reason why is that the sale of the pictures are a way we raise money for sending an athlete to compete in white water rafting in national and international championships. It is a form of donation and when you purchase the photos they go for a good cause. Win win situation. Best of all the photos are always really great and the facial expressions are priceless. Thank you for getting them. PURA VIDA, Diana

This is our favorite experience too. That is why we do it everyday and we love it. The best thing about white water rafting is that you will never get the same experience twice. Water level changes, people in your boat are different, the rapid will give you a different ride each day, the scenery changes, etc. That is what make rafting so special. It is never the same even if you go down the same river each and every day guaranteeing you will never get bored and that you will always have your adrenaline rush. Unique is right, fun always and safety comes first. Thank you for recommending us and for your review. PURA VIDA, Diana
