About

This  river  float trips passes through class I-II excitement on the Balsa River. Offering a completely different experience  than white water rafting,  this white water tubing trip is sure to create some wild fun on any Costa Rica vacation. Your river guide will  guide the trip through  the  best routes to  pick as the group maneuvers through the class I and II rapids.

This was the best thing I did in Costa Rica! I’ve been rafting in America and this was so much more fun! ASK for Orlando as your guide he genuinely loves his job and it shows!

They accommodated our large group and truly made us feel like family. Orlando and Otto were extremely attentive and we felt very safe during the entire trip starting from our hotel pickup. Cheapest and most memorable excursion during our entire week stay!

This was our first time rafting. We were lucky enough to find these guys to do it with. Nothing short of an excellent experience from pick up to drop off.

Our guide was Andrey Coto. Meeting him was the highlight of our journey. Meeting someone like him, made us better people. Whitewater rafting was beyond great but hearing him speak at the end of our rafting journey was nothing short of wonderful. You never fully know how you reach people, the how or the why, but he met us there in that river and took our souls to new levels with his stories and his love & passion for his country and his job. We are grateful. We understand Pura vida because of Andrey. HIGH FIVE my brother!! Job well done.

This was the best experience we had in CR! We did several excursions including with Desafio and Costa Rica Descents was our favorite. Highly recommend! Guides Jon Carlos and Warner were amazing. They allowed us to have a great time while also being completely safe. Both super friendly and professional. The lunch was really tasty and the tour of the plantation was very educational... make sure you get the shot of sugarcane moonshine at the end. Oh yeah, and have the CR coffee! Thanks for the amazing experience and memories!

We had a great time tubing and river rafting with these guys on the Balsa river. Since the two of us were the only ones tubing this day, we were offered to join the rafters for the first part of the river. As it got calmer we moved over to the tubes, gliding alongside the rafts, scanning the trees for wildlife. Sometimes they even acted tug boats. We spotted sloths, iguanas, bats, lots of birds and a blue jeans frog! Everyone in the team were very friendly, helpful and doing their best to make sure all the guests had a good time. We felt absolutely safe with Elvis as our raft master.
