Arenal COMBO Costa Rica Whitewater Rafting and Ziplining
Great day of adventure!
Arenal Combo Tour: Class 2-3 Whitewater Rafting and Canopy Ziplining
Get a double dose of adrenaline in La Fortuna with whitewater rafting and ziplining in Costa Rica! Travel to Arenal's Río Balsa and challenge yourself with class 2-3 rapids as you whitewater raft down the Balsa River. The Rio Balsa is a fun Costa Rica rafting trip with rapids called “Morning Coffee” & “Rock around the Croc!” You are sure to have an unforgettable Costa Rica rafting adventure! Play around in tranquil river pools, take in the breathtaking scenery, and ride the waves of the Balsa River for about two hours along 10 kilometers of lush Costa Rican rainforest.
Then, start the second leg of your day with your Arenal ziplining tour. This canopy zipline adventure will take you on a total of 13 exciting cables throughout this well-thought-out adventure park. The first cable is only 25 meters long, intended to help you feel comfortable with your gear and get you ready to enjoy the rest of the cables of this adventure sport. The thrill of the zip increases from cable to cable until you arrive to cable number 12. This is the longest cable and is an exciting 430 meters long -- that's over 1,200 feet long!
Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to do a unique and exciting Tarzan Swing! You'll love this part of the tour, almost as much as you'll love the 360 degree panoramic view of the rainforest that you'll have as you fly above the lush canopy at the base of the Arenal Volcano.
You’ll finish off this fun-filled day with a delicious traditional lunch at a charming rural location.Two of the best adventure activities in the Arenal, La Fortuna area.
Transport to/from your hotel; fun and professional guides who love what they do; high quality gear for both activities; tropical fruit break; delicious home-cooked meal; towel; and lots of adventure
WHAT TO BRING

Our Arenal Combo Rafting-Ziplining departs at 9am from Downtown La Fortuna, but the exact pick up time depends upon the location of your hotel.
We first start with an exciting rafting trip on the Balsa River class 2-3 about 45 minutes from La Fortuna.
Once at the river you'll get your equipment, safety speech and do some practice moves, then you will spend around 2 hours paddling downriver.
Once you finish up rafting, we'll take you back toward La Fortuna (about 25 minutes ride) and have a delicious homemade lunch. After lunch, we will take you back to town and another van will take you straight to your Ecoglide Ziplining tour.
Once at the Ziplining tour, you will be zipping along for an hour and 45 minutes tour and be back in your hotel between 5:00 to 5:30 pm.
Have a look at ourAdventure Waiver if you have questions about our Costa Rica adventure tour policies and this Costa Rica combo rafting ziplining tour.
For reasons beyond our control (climate, river levels, etc.), we may change to a more-suitable tour with an equal or similar adventure-appeal or offer other tour options so you don`t miss out on a fun day in Costa Rica. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions & will only run a tour according to our policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run. This adventure involves some inherent risk and physical exertion, so you must be in good physical condition!
While the recommended weight limit for our canyoneering (rappelling) tour and most zip line tours is 220 lbs (100 kilos) it’s more about waist size than weight as the ropes (canyoneering) and cables (zip lines) are rated for well over 220 lbs but the maximum waist size for the harnesses used for these tours is 42 inches. So if you are a little over 220 lbs but your waist is less than 42 inches you can still do these tours.
NOTE: We have an extra transport charge for hotels outside of our normal pick-up
ZONE 1: 1-22 pax: No extra charge
ZONE 2: Lost Iguana, Observatory Lodge, Arenal Lodge & The Springs Resort: $20 per trip or $40 roundtrip. ZONE 3: Rancho Margot, Linda Vista, Arenal Vista: $25; $50 rndtrp
ZONE 4: Leaves & Lizards, V. Hermosa, Tilajari: $35/trip; $70 rndtrp

We started off the day with rafting, our guide, Elmer, was crazy fun! The guides were professional, and ensured we had a safe trip while still having fun! We were afraid the class 2-3 rapids were going to be too tame, but there were plenty of rapids to keep our blood pumping. Great views, beautiful scenery, and Elmer even managed to find us a much desired Sloth in a lone tree.
Part of the rafting trip included a delicious lunch at a local farm - the family that owns this farm greeted us with smiles and AMAZING food. Enough food to fill our bellies for the next half of the day
They got us back to the office just in time to leave for zip lining. The company, Ecoglide, picked us up from the office and we headed out! It was such an efficient and FUN zip line - they worked it out so that you almost never waited in line to get clipped in, you just jumped from one cable to the next. The views were spectacular throughout the trek - do the Tarzan swing.
