Full description
On this rafting tour with transfers included you’ll be picked up in San José, taken rafting, and transferred to your hotel in La Fortuna in the afternoon. Despite departing from San José, you’ll be on the water for exactly the same amount of time as the normal rafting excursions that leave out of La Fortuna/Arenal Volcano. In fact, you meet up with the rest of the rafters from La Fortuna at the private put-in for each tour. You receive a safety talk, get your gear all set (helmet, life jacket, and paddle), and have the time of your life paddling down one of Costa Rica’s best rivers! Enjoy 2-2.5 hours of rafting through class 2-3 rapids on the Río Balsa. Finish up with a delicious spread of fresh tropical fruit, and then move on to the river house for an exclusive homemade buffet lunch. Afterwards, return to your hotel by 16:00.

We got picked up at our hostel in San Jose, when we arrived we got a safety lesson and supplies then hit the river. All the tour guides were great, they made us feel safe and we had a blast! We stopped for a great lunch then headed to our hostel in La Fortuna. Highly recommend, especially because we didn’t waste a travel day!
