White Water Rafting in Arenal
Adrenaline Packed Adventure on Rivers with II-III & II-IV Class Rapids!
Take part in an adrenaline filled excursion of Rio Toro or Rio Balsa. The River Balsa offers level II-III rapids and is perfect for beginners but still challenging enough to make it an exciting excursion! And Rio Toro offers more continuous rapids along its 16 kilometers of deep-canyon gorges than any other river in Costa Rica.
You adventure begins when you are picked up from your hotel and driven 50 minutes by 4×4 to the river to start your white water journey! First, the professional guides will give you a safety talk and paddling instructions before you set off paddling along the scenic river where you can see lots of wildlife like monkeys, sloths and tropical birds such as Ospreys, Oropendolas and Toucans.
Moderate physical condition required. Fit enough to paddle for 2.5+ hours
Age limitations: 10+
Your tour includes: transportation, guides, towel, snack and ‘casado’ lunch in the restaurant
What to bring: comfortable clothes that will get wet, swim wear, secure shoes (tennis or water shoes) and change of clothes.
Please note: If river conditions are unsuitable for the Río Toro, our head guide might make the call to change to a back-up river of similar or equal level which is only 20 minutes futher and/or offer another tour, such as our half-day whitewater raft tour on the Río Balsa. We are lucky that our river levels are controlled by the water release of electrical dams so we have excellent water all-year-long. However, sometimes there is less-electricity production on Sundays in Costa Rica, so in dry season we may have to make a change of rivers or activities.
