White Water Rafting Adventure Class III & IV on the Upper part of Balsa River
From US$85.00
Overview
Have a fun whitewater rafting adventure in class III and IV rapids—they’re more challenging than easy rapids but not very dangerous. Raft nine miles (15 kilometers) down the Balsa River while leaving enough time to swim and snack on Costa Rican fruit. Afterward, your guide rewards you with a beer and takes you to a local restaurant for lunch.
What to Expect
Your whitewater rafting adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Fortuna. Then, make your way to the rapids, where you’re fitted for safety equipment. Get on the water and start the 9-mile (15-kilometer) journey down the river.

Your guides help you pass level III and IV rapids, which might require precise maneuvering and some scouting. Take advantage of a stop along the way to swim and snack on fruit.

After the journey down the river, your guide gives you a beer—or water—and takes you to a local restaurant for a Costa Rica-style lunch. Conclude the tour with a drop-off at the original departure point.
