To add to the originality of this trip we will stop in El Salto. This is natures equivalent of a water park, complete with waterfalls, pools of water and a rope swing.

Afterwards, we will proceed to the Upper Balsa, a stretch that is considered one of the most technically challenging commercially run rapids in Costa Rica.

You will be accompanied by expert river guides and safety kayakers. There will be two breaks from the heart pounding rapids to refuel. The first stop will be along the river, where we will enjoy some fresh fruit. The second stop will be for an authentic Costa Rican lunch, you’ll also learn about the growing, harvesting, production of chocolate, medical plants, fruits and sugar cane.
