    1. La Fortuna: Canyoning and White Water Rafting Experience

    Get your adrenaline pumping with an exciting adventure in the Costa Rican rainforest. After getting picked up from your hotel in La Fortuna, drive to a canyon located 20 minutes outside of the city. Then transfer to a 4x4 truck for a thrilling short drive into the rainforest to a ranch house to gear up. When you're ready, set out on your morning of excitement and exhilaration. Start the day by rappelling through lush waterfalls, then take on a canyon wall. Afterward, zip line through the rainforest, rock climb and rappel, all in the spectacular rainforest canyon. After a short hike once you get out of the canyon, head to the Balsa River for 2 hours of white water rafting in the middle of the rainforest. Get wet and wild on rapids such as "Magnetic Rock" and "Dredges".  Enjoy a swim in the river and a short stop for fresh tropicals fruits and a cold drink. On the way back to La Fortuna,...

You’ll finish off this fun-filled day with a delicious lunch at a charming, rural location.

    We enjoyed the rapelling and rafting excursions. We rapelled in the cool, refreshing water of the canyon. Be warned that there are slippery rocks so hiking sandals with good traction are a must. Also, the hike back up was steep, so you must be moderately fit and healthy. The good thing was that there were stepping stones. The Balsa River rafting tour was exhilarating; there were plenty of class 2 & 3 rapids which made it exciting. Just when you thought you can let your guard down, the river starts boiling and rumbling again. We were able to clean off the river water in 4 outdoor showers (cold water only) and there were a few private changing rooms. At the end of our adventure, a generous plate of casada (black beans and rice) with veggies, yucca, two pieces of braised chicken and relish was served to us. We also got a chance to sample shots of moonshine and see how brown sugar was made from harvested sugar cane. We had a great time. Highly recommended.
