This fun-filled class II-III white water rafting tour and ATV Combo Tour begins with pickup at your La Fortuna hotel. The bus may stop at other hotels to pick up participants. Shoes that stay on your feet are a must. Pack a backpack with change of clothing and toiletry articles. Prepare for the first half of your exciting outdoor experience as guides instruct you on the ins and outs of driving or riding on your ATV. To drive as a SGL Rider on your own ATV, you must be at least 16 years of age and show your driver's license. If you are ages 8-15 or don't have a driver's license, you can still enjoy this great adventure, you will just need to ride double with someone who is a licensed driver. This tour is sure a fantastic way to see the Arenal Volcano area and the valley below!! At the end of the tour, your guides will provide a delicious tropical fruit snack before you begin your next adventure on this combo tour. Jump into the vehicle waiting to take you to the Balsa River where the day’s excitement is kept alive with a fun-filled, action-packed ride down the class II-III rapids of the Rio Balsa. Once you arrive at the Rio Balsa, your guides and safety kayakers will instruct you on how to paddle, teaching you the basic moves, commands and safety procedures you will need to know before you embark on the tour. You will enjoy a wet and exciting ride as you raft down the beautiful and tropical Balsa River. Drink in the majestic foliage of the rain forest as you watch for monkeys, sloths and toucans while you raft. Enjoy a swim, tropical fruits and cold drinks during your break from the action. At the end of the rafting tour, you and the crew will be sure to give “high-fives” all around. After loading the gear on the bus, you will leave for your lunch spot, which is a tour on its own. A delicious, typical lunch is served at a traditional country estate designed for guests to truly experience Costa Rica’s peaceful country life. You will come to understand the meaning of Costa Rica’s favorite saying, “Pura Vida!” After you finish lunch, you will ride back towards the town of Fortuna. Don't worry about taking a camera with you on the river or through the canyons, because there are professional photos (not included) available for purchase from both the rafting and rappelling tours. The bus will drop you at your hotel between 4:00 and 4:30 pm.
