In the grandest canyon of the Balsa River, experience the excitement, serenity, joy and enchanting beauty of the river as it transforms this divine chasm and those who venture down it.
Upon arrival at the river we will gear you up with a life jacket, helmet and paddle and then brief you with a full safety orientation talk. Finally, it is time to take off down the rapids! Make sure you are in good physical condition to do this activity.
Two incredible days of tropical white-water rafting will offer a unique, tranquil and unforgettable camping experience and an opportunity to get closer to nature. It’s one of Costa Rica’s loveliest and most exciting destinations for rafting. This tour takes you down some of the swiftest parts of the river, including some class III & IV rapids, pauses for a night of tent camping, and continues with a second day on the river.
Finally, you will learn about the growing, harvesting, production of chocolate, medical plants, fruits and sugar cane. Your guide will help you extract sugar 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!
