Rio Balsa Rafting

Challenge yourself as you paddle through fun and safe rolling Class II-III rapids with names like "Morning Coffee" and "Rock around the Croc;" then play around in tranquil river pools in an isolated rainforest river canyon. All of this only 30 minutes from La Fortuna!
Your professional, experienced, bilingual rafting guides will give you a safety talk and paddling instruction, life-jackets and helmets, and then you're off down the Rio Balsa (Balsa River).
