Don't miss Costa Rica's BEST River Tubing Adventure. Our guides, who are experts in River Tubing, will take you down rainforest rapids over big waves, along fast runs, and even get in some relaxing float time. We'll also do our best to show you local wildlife throughout the tour, like exotic frogs, sloths, and toucans, which are common to the area. Great fun for adults, as well as children 5 years and older.

We had such a blast during our river tubing along the Arenal River!! It was safe, fun and exciting!! We loved the resort the tour started from...we had dinner there and watched the sunset. We also enjoyed the facilities throughout The Springs resort.

My wife does not like adventure or thrill seeking. She loved to river tubing, so this tells me that anyone would love it. It's safe and fun for the whole family regardless of age or level of experience.More

I'm not sure if you'll make it. Bookings are done by email so the best thing would be to email and ask. The website says tours go out at 8:30am but that's not accurate. We got picked up at 11am for ours, for example.
