A fun combination of whitewater thrills and areas where the water is docile enough to jump in and go for a swim. 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 rapids will bring laughter and excitement. 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.
