Team Building & Corporate Groups

Rios Tropicales provides Team Building and Incentive rafting programs for corporations, organizations, and other groups, customized to your specific objectives and needs.

Team Building is recognized as one of the most important methods for businesses to train personnel, improve service and remain competitive in the marketplace. Leaders understand that to excel means developing and encouraging the potential of their employees. Maintaining clear communication, producing results easily, and working together effectively are some of the main challenges companies face daily.


Adventure is a condensed lesson of life, and by their nature, outdoor activities demand teamwork. Rios Tropicales offers you an extraordinary opportunity to capitalize on your team’s potential in our unique Team-Building Courses. Groups gain new perspectives and practice skills that enable them to meet goals with cooperation, leadership and confidence. We take participants out to Costa Rica’s stunning tropical rivers and forests and present them with challenges that are immediate and demanding in whitewater rafting. We recommend that groups do not exceed 24 participants.


Our trips are interactive, participant-focused and, most of all, active and fun. Simple and memorable exercises focus on aspects of the group’s performance and apply them to actual work and life situations. This unique combination of mental, physical and emotional learning is proven to be long-lasting and effective. Participants achieve results not just for work but also for every area of life – home, relationships, personal productivity and personal goals.


The most common benefits received from Team-Building include creating strong team spirit, the experience of overcoming challenge, and a sense of accomplishment and success. Groups work powerfully in teamwork, effectiveness, leadership, communication, trust, confidence, responsibility, unity and service.


Team-Building activities are integral for companies seeking to build morale, resolve conflict, encourage new thinking, plan for the future, clarify team roles/goals and encourage fun and celebration of success.  Team-Building is far more successful when built upon in steps over a continuous period of time. High-performing teams evolve over time, and continuous attention to a group’s ways of working and being together creates exponential results.
