Your tour begins with hotel pickup from your hotel in San Jose. You will meet your guide and drive to Arenal passing through gorgeous Costa Rican scenery and roads. You'll arrive at a private put-in at the Balsa River where you can change clothes and get ready for your adventure. You will then receive a briefing from your professional guide including paddling and safety instructions. Then, it is time to suit up with the safety gear and start the tour.
You will paddle down 10 kilometers of exciting rapids with names like “Congo Loco” and “Rock around the Croc." As you descend down the river, you can admire the lush greenery, vines, and different types of insects, birds and animals such as monkeys and sloths. One you are halfway down the river, you can see the rapids from the shore and enjoy fresh tropical fruit while you relax with the rest of your group. When you end your adventure, enjoy a typical Costa Rican lunch at a lovely local restaurant.
