The two day White water rafting on the Pacuare River and the lodge at Rio Tropicales was an amazing experience. Such incredible scenery & lying in bed listening to the roar of the river was unforgettable. The Osa Peninsula was also spectacular and saw some incredible wildlife.

The places you stayed

Radisson San Jose swimming pool

Radisson San Jose

Costa Rica

A clean functional hotel and served the purpose of a comfortable bed to sleep in following a long flight and to get ready for our trip. We know that we were placed there as it was the only place we could be collected from for our rafting trip. There was nothing wrong with the hotel it just doesn’t compare to some of the other outstanding hotels we stayed in.
