Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in the La Fortuna area, after which you transfer to your first activity of the day, featuring an exciting zipline adventure through the rain forest canopy.

Strap into your harness and don a helmet as your instructors explain the basics of controlling your speed on the park’s ziplines. Then prepare for fun (and perhaps some adrenaline too) as you fly at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour (70 kilometers per hour) amidst the rain forest treetops like a jungle bird, taking advantage of seven of the zipline course’s best rides. One ride requires a climb up a 54-foot (18-meter) high tower followed by 360-foot (120-meter) ride over a scenic canyon. Another zipline features more than 3,200 feet (980 meters) of cable above La Fortuna Waterfall, making it the longest in the entire park.

After your zipline adventure, hop aboard the trip’s 4x4 jeep and enjoy an included fruit snack as you head to the Balsa River. When you arrive at the white-water rafting spot, put on your gear and get an introduction to safe paddling and rafting commands from your guides. Then climb into your raft and prepare to get wet along the Class II and III rapids of this fast-moving waterway. You might even scout sloths, toucans, and monkeys in the surrounding jungle, and have time to spare for a refreshing swim.

When the rafting trip is done, head to the day’s included lunch spot, where you dig into a typical Costa Rican-style meal served at a traditional country estate. Following lunch, receive a ride back to your hotel in La Fortuna, to be dropped off in the late afternoon.

An unforgettable amazing experience!!!

Absolutely AMAZING! My zipline guides, Warren and Jose, were wonderful and took great care of us. I was nervous at first but they quickly put me at ease. Flying through the rainforest and over waterfalls is incredible. A must do! Next we went white water rafting with Jairo as our tour guide telling about the area as we drove. Javair was an excellent driver, so much so that I was able to nap a little. The white water rafting was FANTABULOUS!!! With SUPER Mario as our guide we had a wonderful time and saw sloths and colorful birds along the way. After all of this adventure they took us to lunch at a wonderful organic farm where we had an amazing lunch made with all fresh food grown on the farm along with coffee and fresh juice. Then off to see how sugar cane is processed with a taste to sugar cane justice and the moonshine liquors made with sugarcane. Beware — maybe bear not to do 2 shots. All in all worth the money. Make sure to bring cash to tip.

The zipline tour was absolutely amazing. I have a fear of heights so I was pretty nervous but the instructor was completely understanding and helped me get over my fear. The zip lining itself was surreal and majestic. The rafting was so much fun!! We saw some animals (sloth, iguanas). Totally recommend this combo tour!! The lunch was also really tasty.
