Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in the La Fortuna area, after which you transfer to your first activity of the day, featuring an exciting zipline adventure through the rain forest 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 rain forest 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 white-water rafting spot, 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, head to the day’s included lunch spot, where you dig into a typical Costa Rican-style meal served at a traditional country estate. Following lunch, receive a ride back to your hotel in La Fortuna, to be dropped off in the late afternoon.

SUCH a great experience. The funnest excursion we’ve ever been on. Agusto was our rafting tour guide. We felt safe, had tons of fun and had a BLAST! Zip lining was beautiful, fast, and a great time as well. They feed you well, give you drinks, and make it such a fun and enjoyable day.

Guides were excellent with an all around great experience including learning a lot about the local culture and history. Unfortunately my youngest son got hit the day before and he and my wife could not attend this excursion. Hopefully Viator will offer some type of refund to us.

An unforgettable amazing experience!!!

Absolutely AMAZING! My zipline guides, Warren and Jose, were wonderful and took great care of us. I was nervous at first but they quickly put me at ease. Flying through the rainforest and over waterfalls is incredible. A must do! Next we went white water rafting with Jairo as our tour guide telling about the area as we drove. Javair was an excellent driver, so much so that I was able to nap a little. The white water rafting was FANTABULOUS!!! With SUPER Mario as our guide we had a wonderful time and saw sloths and colorful birds along the way. After all of this adventure they took us to lunch at a wonderful organic farm where we had an amazing lunch made with all fresh food grown on the farm along with coffee and fresh juice. Then off to see how sugar cane is processed with a taste to sugar cane justice and the moonshine liquors made with sugarcane. Beware — maybe bear not to do 2 shots. All in all worth the money. Make sure to bring cash to tip.

The zipline tour was absolutely amazing. I have a fear of heights so I was pretty nervous but the instructor was completely understanding and helped me get over my fear. The zip lining itself was surreal and majestic. The rafting was so much fun!! We saw some animals (sloth, iguanas). Totally recommend this combo tour!! The lunch was also really tasty.

A mother daughter trip to Costa Rica. A day with zip lining and WWR. Wave Adventures is a very professional outfitter. Our transfers were in time and the drivers great. In both our outings the drivers pulled over to show us something cool on the side of the road. A sloth and an owl. Our guide for Zip Lining was Fabian 2. I give him a A+. He did everything right as far as making us feel safe as well as being a fun easy person to spend the morning with. Our guide for our Kayak trip was Carlos and he was awesome also. He was professional, thorough and personable. On the river Rovell was in charge. Again, professional and fun.the river was just right for the two of us and the sights along the way (sloths, iguanas, owls and iguanas). The ohitos from the river were worth the price. We also enjoyed the lunch, the food was incredible and the coffee and sugar cane demonstrations. Wave Expeditions is a well run machine. Was a great day and worth every penny.

I booked this combo tour through Viator for my last day in La Fortuna, based on the reviews. I'm in my 50's and had never tried either activity and decided this might be my last chance to do so. When I saw that first tower on the zip lining portion, I thought I'd be the one chicken in the group to back out. Nope. I did both and I am so happy I did! The waterfall along the cable was incredible. There were other special treats & touches along the way, which I won't spoil for you. Not to mention an authentic, organic, home cooked meal on a farm to end your day. You won't be disappointed.

Great way to spend a day in Costa Rica!

We have gone on a lot of tours and this was probably the best one we have ever taken! The guides at both the zipline and the rafting were very personable, going out of their ways to make it a great time for us. Fabion at the zipline was great. Flaco/Gerald at the river was so good! He went way out of his way to make it fun. Considering everything that is included in this tour (ziplining, rafting, lunch, and great cultural surprises) it is a great value for your time and money!

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.
