Adventure Connection La Fortuna to San Jose Whitewater Rafting Balsa River Class 2 and 3
Turn your day of travel into an action packed adventure! Class 2-3 rafting on the Balsa River is perfect for all nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and people who are looking for an easy-going adventure!
After getting picked up from your hotel, we’ll drive through the beautiful Costa Rican back roads to our private put-in at the Balsa River, equipped with bathrooms and change rooms. Your professional guide will start the day off by providing paddling and safety instructions and then suiting you up with safety gear to prepare for your adventure! Challenge yourself as you paddle down 10 kilometers of exciting rapids with names like “Congo Loco” and “Rock around the Croc”. As you descend down the river, you’ll have a chance to admire the lush greenery, vines, and different types of insects, birds and animals, like monkeys and sloths.
About half way down the river you’ll have a chance to see the river rapids from the shore, while enjoying fresh tropical fruit and relaxing with the rest of your group! When your rafting adventure is finished, enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch at a lovely restaurant. After your day full of nature, adventure and delicious food, we’ll drive you to your new vacation destination in our comfortable air-conditioned vans complete with FREE WiFi to share your adventures with your friends and family who missed out back home!
Your luggage stays in our vehicles and our driver stays with your items while you are doing your tour. We have private entrances and exits for our rafting tour locations. Extra transport charge for drop-off outside of our regular hotel zone.
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!
Our Adventure Connections offer flexibility and convenience when traveling between the San José Metropolitan Area and the Arenal Volcano. We include pick-ups from nearly all San José major hotels and there is no additional charge for pick-ups and drop-offs in Alajuela.
