Tour information

Special Combo Tour

(2 in 1) Canyoning + Rafting + Lunch - snacks

This combo is the perfect mix between rappelling, climbing down rocks, and flat out "hiking" through the River, also with Whitewater Rafting in a spectacular trip down the Balsa River.

We will pick you up at your hotel in La Fortuna and driving no longer than 30 minutes; next, the adventure will begin Canyoneering in the Lost Canyon. There are several tropical waterfalls up to 200 feet high waiting for you. You will strap on your harness and rappelling yourself down getting to river-trace, hiking, free-fall, and down-climb through nature obstacle courses.

By noon you will have had a delicious early lunch to refill energy for the afternoon trip. River adventure will start after 45 minutes driving to Balsa River.

Once in the starting point, you are going to wear a life jacket, a helmet for safe and also a paddle to go down the rapids class 3. You will challenge yourself learning new skills for rafting. Half-way through, we will do a short stop for swimming, drinking and having some snacks before we head through the second half of the river.

We will continue with rapids class 2 that go slower than class 3; therefore you will have the chance to appreciate howler monkeys and river birds that are frequently on the way. At the end of this rafting, you can change into your dry clothes, and then we will head you to a rural restaurant to have a well-deserved Costa Rican lunch. By the way, while you are having lunch, you can check and purchase your trip photos.

After an adventure challenging day, you will be back at your hotel in La Fortuna at 4: 30 p.m. approximately.
