Start with pickup at your La Fortuna hotel at 10:30am, then travel to the Balsa River in a comfortable bus. All equipment is provided, and you can bring a change of dry clothes to leave in the bus while you’re on the river.
When you arrive at the launch point, go over the basics of tubing, river safety, and commands with the river guides and “safety kayakers” who will accompany you. After the briefing, hit the river, riding through a series of easy-going rapids, rolling over “wave trains,” and splashing through holes. Watch for the monkeys, sloths, and toucans that thrive at the edge of the river, and pause partway down for a swim, cool drinks, and fresh fruits.
At the end of your time on the river, dry off for the trip to an area estate, where you can finish the day with a leisurely, country-style lunch. This 6-hour river tubing trip concludes with drop-off at your La Fortuna hotel between 4pm and 4:30pm.
