Rafting Balsa River Class III & IV


Pick up at hotel

A fun combination of whitewater thrills and areas where the water is docile enough to jump in and go for a swim. This is perfect for a family adventure and for beginners. Wildlife abound in this section of the Balsa so keep an eye out for sloths, iguanas, howler monkeys and a vast array of tropical birds. There is no better way to observe wildlife than floating down a river. However this trip is not all about relaxation. The rolling, tumbling class 3-4 rapids will be enough to bring laughter and excitement to the whole family. The trip will be guided by our awesome and safe guides that could make a puddle of mud fun. As with every trip, there will be one stop for locally grown, organic fruits and another stop for an authentic Costa Rican lunch.

What to bring simple dry clothing, such as shorts and a t-shirt, swimsuit, sunscreen, shoes that will stay on your feet, sport sandals and water shoes are recommended, a change of clothing.
