Whitewater Rafting Class III Balsa River

The northern zone of Costa Rica is blessed with the most beautiful landscapes and incredible rivers for rafting. This is perfect for a family adventure and for beginners with a fun combination of whitewater thrills and areas where the water is docile enough to jump in and go for a swim. Wildlife abound in this section of  the Balsa so keep an eye out for sloths, iguanas, howler monkeys and a  vast array of tropical birds. There is no better way to observe wildlife than floating down a river; its a unique day to combine adventure and nature. The rolling, tumbling rapids will be enough to bring laughter and excitement to the whole family.
