Looking for an exclusive and private full-day of adrenaline in Costa Rica? We can help you combine the exciting Lost Canyon Adventures Canyoneering and rafting on the beautiful Río Balsa for a full-day of pure adrenaline in your own, private, small group!
The MAMBO COMBO Rappel and Raft private experience is the perfect blend of canyons, rappelling, whitewater adventure, wildlife, rolling rapids, and vibrant jungle!
Here is what you'll do on your full-day Arenal COMBO tour of canyoning and rafting:
Canyoning in the Lost Canyon - this is an experience of a lifetime! Go where very few have had the privilege to roam! Imagine yourself in the midst of a thick rainforest, at the top of a magical canyon, full of tropical waterfalls with surprises each step of the journey!! You’ll get to rappel, down-climb, and experience amazing free-falls and guided rappels. When you finish up this heart-pounding part of the Arenal COMBO, you will head back up we will provide you a snack to keep your motor running and you will head back down the mountain on one of our Desafio original Jungle Limos to catch your ride to our private put-in of the Rio Balsa.
You will ride the waves of the Rio Balsa for about 2.5 hours along 10 kilometers of lush Costa Rican rainforest. You’ll finish off this fun-filled Arenal COMBO day with a delicious lunch at our own exclusive location along the Fortuna Riuver at El Salto: Hunters and Gatherers.
We take you back to your hotel in private transportation so you can recap all of the fun and adventure you had during your Arenal MAMBO COMBO in La Fortuna.

We have created these fun COMBO tours to help you economize time and money on your vacation - we will coordinate your tour pick-ups and drop-offs and in some COMBOs, you may have a short break back at your hotel to take a breather before the next tour. Please keep your itinerary with you so you are aware of your COMBO logistics.
Our exclusive, PRIVATE trips include private transport to and from your hotel, you get our most-experienced, top bilingual guides to accompany you, personalized choice of food options, no sense of rushing along - you can take your time, plus you get your photos included.
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.

We did the private mambo combo tour and both parts were excellent. It's great that this company has so many customized options so you can enjoy the experience you really want. The guides for both parts were incredible. They were knowledgeable about safety, entertaining, and seem to really enjoy their work. This is definitely the adventure company to treat yourself to while on vacation.

The whole tour was fantastic. Wonderful guides and assistants, great food (they fed us 3x!), and an adventure that is an amazing memory for our whole family. I give the tour 5 stars +!!!. Anyone who does not try this is missing out on an experience of a lifetime. Bring lots of layers and water clothes for varying climates and changes of temperature.
