  • Challenge the Class II and III rapids of the Balsa River

  • All rafting gear and round-trip hotel transport is covered
  • Perfect day of adrenaline and outdoor fun
Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in the La Fortuna area, after which you’ll transfer to your first activity of the day featuring an exciting zipline adventure through the rainforest canopy.

Strap into your harness and don a helmet as your instructors explain the basics of controlling your speed on the park’s ziplines. Then prepare for fun (and perhaps some adrenaline too) as you fly at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour (70 kilometers per hour) amidst the rainforest treetops like a jungle bird, taking advantage of seven of the zipline course’s best rides. One ride requires a climb up a 54-foot (18-meter) high tower followed by 360-foot (120-meter) ride over a scenic canyon. Another zipline features more than 3,200 feet (980 meters) of cable above La Fortuna Waterfall, making it the longest in the entire park.

After your zipline adventure, hop aboard the trip’s 4x4 jeep and enjoy an included fruit snack as you head to the Balsa River. When you arrive at the whitewater rafting spot, you’ll put on your gear and get an introduction to safe paddling and rafting commands from your guides. Then climb into your raft and prepare to get wet along the Class II and III rapids of this fast-moving waterway. You might even scout sloths, toucans, and monkeys in the surrounding jungle, and have time to spare for a refreshing swim.

When the rafting trip is done, you’ll head to the day’s included lunch spot, where you’ll dig into a typical Costa Rican-style meal served at traditional country estate. Following lunch, receive a ride back to your hotel in La Fortuna, where you’ll be dropped off between 4pm and 4:30pm.

My daughter and I had an amazing time on both the Zipline tour, Thank You so much for your support and kindness Alex and Macoy Gracias Marcos. The Rafting was awesome with really knowledgable guides about the wildlife, Indigenous people and geography, not to mention a kick-ass ride!!!!!! Totally worth it and would do it again PURA VIDA!

Our family had a wonderful time with this activity. The instructions for zip lining were very detailed, and our group was very comfortable with the orientation. The zip lining was fun, but we were somewhat disappointed since there was no zip line over the falls as indicated in the description. The rappelling was an added treat and fun. The most fun and exciting was the rafting with our guide Moises. He was a very capable and reassuring guide who easily steered us over and around rocks, and our adult kids thought this was the highlight of our trip.

Diaz was great. Very engaging with adults and children alike. The kids loved him. Very safe. lots of fun! the sugar cane presentation at the end was a real nice addition. The costa Ricans are wonderful people who are very proud of their country, it is worth every moment to spend talking to them and learning how they live.

Amazing views ziplining! Pablo and Ronaldo were great guides, made us feel safe and were very entertaining throughout the day. Rafting trip was even better, a lot of fun and excitement on the river, even good for kids. We were in great hands with Carlos, both as a rafting captain and tour guide down the river, pointing out Sloths, birds and giving interesting information about Costa Rica and the wildlife. Diaz was an awesome tour guide on the bus ride, teaching us a lot about Costa Rica. Wave Expedition provided an amazing end to end experience, with transportation, fresh fruit break on the river, post rafting beers and towels and capped off with a trip to a local farm with great coffee and food. Then a very cool and tasty sugar cane demonstration : overall 10/10 day!

So much fun. Guides were all awesome especially Jeffery and Arcino the zip lines and Marcos was an amazing river guide. He was so knowledgeable and just st a beautiful person. River was amazing. Our faces hurt from laughing and smiling. Did not receive my link to the pictures I paid for on the zip lines. Will have to dispute this charge on my credit card.

Amazing tour. I went with my husband to Costa Rica for a short vacation and decided to do the tour. It was a worthwhile experience. It was well organized and employees were wonderful. The zipline has amazing views and the rafting was so much fun. The food was delicious.

This tour was incredible! The zip lining was an experience and the guides were so kind to us. We had so much fun. The rafting was exciting and the fruit and dinner were delicious! They knew exactly what they were doing and we couldn't have had a better time. Would definitely do this again-

This was the most amazing day! Jeffery tandem zip lined with me. Perfect and beautiful. There is a locker to rent so take a small bag with your suit/river clothes for later. Marcos was our guide rafting. He was awesome. Gave us a snack before and then fresh fruit mid raft and then an amazing meal.

My family husband, 14yo, 11yo and me had an amazing day starting at 7:00AM and ending around 4:30PM. Pick-up at the hotel was on time. We went on 7 fantastic ziplines including one that is 1 km over La Fortuna waterfall. Guides were fun. After ziplining we briefly learned about the indigenous Maleku tribe before moving on to whitewater rafting. Wave Expeditions provided us with a snack before transporting us to the put-in at the Balsa River about 45 minutes away. Our guide, Marcos, was very entertaining and even allowed my 11-year old to ride the bull after stopping for a snack of fresh pineapple and watermelon. The rafting trip started with class III rapids in pretty quick succession then ended a bit more mellow but entire trip was a good time. After rafting, we had lunch at a beautiful farm and learned about processing sugar cane. At the end of a fun and tiring day, we were delivered safely to our hotel. Highly recommend this trip!
