Full Day Class II-III Rafting and Zipline Tour from La Fortuna-Arenal
From US$110,00
Let your adrenaline levels soar on a white-water rafting and zipline tour in La Fortuna, one of the best places for adventure in Costa Rica. During several zipline rides, get aerial views of the rain forest and watch for tropical birds and monkeys. The relatively gentle Class II–III rapids of the Balsa River mean that no previous experience rafting is required. Return transportation and a guide make this an easy day trip.
What to Expect
Your adventure begins with morning pickup from your La Fortuna hotel, where you’ll board an air-conditioned coach destined for the zipline center. Once onsite, strap on your harness and receive a safety briefing before conquering several ziplines positioned over the rain forest canopy.
Soar over a canyon at speeds of up to 40 miles (70 kilometers) per hour. Get aerial views of La Fortuna Waterfall and look out for native wildlife such as monkeys and tropical birds. Following the zipline circuit, you’ll have a fruit snack and travel to the Balsa River in a 4WD vehicle.
On arrival, put on your rafting gear and listen to instructions from a guide before tackling the Class II and III rapids of the Balsa River, a fast-moving waterway home to sloths, toucans, and monkeys.
Following a Costa Rican-style lunch, you’ll be dropped off at your La Fortuna hotel later in the evening.

I would recommend Wave Expeditions for any white water rafting excursion. All of the guides were very technically knowledgable and safety was never a concern. We had a very nice lunch following the rafting at a local organic farm which was a very nice way...More
