Looking for a white water river rafting trip that offers excitement, but milder white-water rapids?
The half-day adventure on the Rio Balsa provides plenty of action and thrills, but with Class II-III rapids, children ages 8-11 can come along on this wet and wild adventure. Your river guide will pick you up at your hotel and join you on the 30-minute drive to the “put-in” spot where the fun begins!
But dont worry, you will get a thorough briefing and explanation of the safety equipment and procedures. Once everyone has had time to practice and review the commands and “high-fives” you will embark on your journey down the rapids. Get wet and wild as you navigate rapids such as “Magnetic Rock” and “Dredges” on your 2-hour trek down the beautiful and tropical Balsa River. Drink in the majestic foliage of the rainforest as you watch for monkeys, sloths, and toucans while you raft. Enjoy a swim, tropical fruits, and cold drinks during your break from the action. At the end of the tour, your lunch spot is a tour on its own. A delicious, typical lunch is served at a traditional country estate designed for guests to truly experience Costa Rica’s peaceful country life.
With this tour you will come to understand the meaning of Costa Rica’s favorite saying, “Pura Vida!”
