Rafting Balsa River (Upper) - Class V
Get pumped for a challenging descent into a lush rainforest canyon that will stimulate your adrenal glands to the max. We are the only rafting company that offers the opportunity to run this exhilarating and scenic stretch of the Rio Balsa. To add to the originality of this trip we will stop in El Salto. This is natures equivalent of a water park, complete with waterfalls, pools of water and a rope swing.
Afterwards, we will proceed to the Upper Balsa, a stretch that is considered one of the most technically challenging commercially run rapids in Costa Rica. You will be accompanied by expert river guides and safety kayakers. There will be two breaks from the heart pounding rapids to refuel. The first stop will be at one of the seven dramatic waterfalls along the way, where we will enjoy natures bounty in the form of fresh fruit.
