Class III and IV White Water Rafting Adventure on the Upper Balsa River
Enjoy a white water rafting adventure with Class III and IV rapids; they’re more challenging than easy rapids but not very dangerous. Raft 9 miles (14.5 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 white water 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 (14.5-kilometer) journey down the river.

Your guides help you pass Class 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 drop-off at the original departure point.
