Your full-day tour starts with morning pickup at your La Fortuna hotel.

Travel in an air-conditioned van to your first destination, the chocolate tour. Learn about the history of chocolate and how the cacao bean is transformed into dark chocolate products. Participate in a hands-on demonstration of chocolate-making, mixing chocolate with exotic ingredients such as Jamaica flower, cinnamon, nutmeg and chili powder.

Top it off with a tropical fruit snack before continuing to the Balsa River for your whitewater rafting trip.

Upon arrival at the river, the rafting guides and safety kayakers provide a safety briefing and paddle instruction. Step into your raft and set off on a wet and exciting ride down the Balsa River. Hang on during the class II-III rapids, and take breaks for swimming, snacks, and cold drinks. On mellow stretches, watch for monkeys, sloths, and toucans in the rain forest alongside the river.

At the end of your rafting journey, have the option to purchase professional photos of your rafting trip. Please bring shoes that will stay on your feet while rafting, and a change of clothes.

After rafting, head to a traditional country estate that embodies Costa Rica’s relaxed pura vida lifestyle. Have lunch at the estate, then relax on the ride back to La Fortuna.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel in the late afternoon.
