What You'll Do
  • Tube down white water chutes on the Blue River
  • Enjoy a delightful à la carte lunch at the Blue River Resort and Hot Springs
  • Relax in the hot springs pools at the resort
Costa Rica’s premier water tubing adventure takes you down the breathtaking Blue River. Afterwards you’ll enjoy lunch at the Blue River Resort and relax in a natural mineral hot springs pool, take a mud bath, and stroll through botanical gardens.
What to Expect
One of the most exciting ways to experience the Blue River, or Rio Azul, is with a rubber inner tube.
Wind your way around bends and through white water adrenalin-pumping chutes before reaching the calmer waters of the river.

This full-day adventure is fun for any adult looking for excitement. Rocks tower out of the water and you’ll bump into them, but kept safe by your inflated rubber tube. You’ll be sent spinning forward or backward and need to hold on tight so you don’t fall out of the tube!

The lush rainforest forms a scenic background, as you pass through canyons and thick jungle. In fact, the sound of the water rushing past is quiet compared to the resident howler monkeys, insects, and birds.

Later you’ll spend some time at the Blue River Resort and Hot Springs, enjoying lunch, its 4 natural mineral “green” hot springs pools, mud baths, botanical gardens, butterfly farm, and fresh water pool with bullet waterslide.
