Balsa River Whitewater Rafting

Balsa River Whitewater Rafting

This half-day rafting adventure is perfect for people of all ages and abilities. The Balsa River has class II and III rapids, which are fun and engaging but not dangerous. Get wet and wild during your holiday in Arenal.

The day begins with a pick up and transport from your Arenal area hotel. It’s a short 30-minute drive to the river; from there, you will meet your guides and be given equipment. The professional guides will go over safety rules and provide instruction on how to use the rafting equipment. Once all participants feel comfortable and are ready, the trip will begin.

You’ll enjoy over 2 hours of exciting whitewater action. As you float down the Balsa River, you’ll pass through scenic forests and have the opportunity to spot wildlife. You will paddle through crashing rapids and emerge on the other side smiling and wet. The journey ends at the San Carlos Bridge, where you can swim and enjoy beer, soda, fruit, and other snacks. After relaxing here, you’ll be driven back to your hotel.
