If you have felt the wish to try rafting, this is the perfect chance for you. You can overcome your fears and finally decide to enjoy a unique adventure through the crystal clear waters.

We are going to drive for approximately 20 minutes from La Fortuna to get to the Balsa River.

The rapids of this River are enough to provide you with some great adrenaline-filled moments, but within the safe parameters for first-timers.

With the safety measures required for any adventure activity, all you have to worry about is enjoying this unforgettable experience, surrounded by an amazing landscape with a lot of vegetation, river birds and monkeys. We are going to go rafting for almost 8 miles among rapids classes 3 and 2.

Please bring extra clothes to change after the river trip and being prepared to have lunch.

At the end of the journey, you are sure to be ready to move up to the next level for even more adrenaline in the class 3-4 Sarapiqui River. We will be back in La Fortuna at around 3:30 p.m.

The Best There is!

These folks know their business, showed up on time and are reputable, safe, and know how to have a ton of fun!
The river guides were outstanding. Their knowledge of the river and the control of the raft meant that they can tailor the experience to the people on the raft, making it more exciting if you wanted, and less exciting if you were on the fearful side.
I would do this tour ag ain in a flash.
Try it! If you like the water it’s a do-not-miss tour!
Thank you!

Pure adventure and excellent safety

We had an exceptional time in the white water rafting. We are a family of four and we had one raft with a guide. Both me and my wife don’t know swimming. The river was around level 4. Our guide made sure that we had great fun and none of us fell out of the raft. Also, when the water was calm my kids swam in the water. We had a great time. Our guide was Vladimir and he was also very well educated in cultures around the world... (read more)
Fear Not!

This was the best activity we did in Costa Rica. I was very nervous at first, but our guide, Esteban was a true pro, kept everyone safe and we all had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend this to any first time rafters. It was a blast!
