Balsa River Rafting – Class V

Quick Details

Water Shoes

Experience the Challenging Rapids of the Balsa River

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 sections of the Balsa River.

Upon arrival at the river, we will gear you up with a life jacket, helmet and paddle and then a full safety orientation talk. Then it will be time to take off down the rapids!

You will be accompanied by expert river guides and safety kayakers. There will be one break along the river, where we will enjoy some fresh fruit, to refuel the energy for the second part.  After all the hard paddling, we will stop for an authentic Costa Rican lunch. You’ll also learn about the growing, harvesting and production of seasonal  fruits, medicinal plants, and sugar cane.

Finally, as you learn about sugar cane in Costa Rica, your guide will help you extract juice from the cane in a traditional fashion, and you’ll get to enjoy a glass of pure sugar cane juice. A sweet ending to a sweet tour!

Strong physical condition and a thirst for adventure are required. Rafters must be 18 years of age to participate in this trip and must have previously done Class IV rafting.

Please note that the sections of the river are dependent on the water level.
