Start with pickup at your La Fortuna hotel at 10:30am, then travel to the Balsa River in a comfortable bus. All equipment is provided, and you can bring a change of dry clothes to leave in the bus while you’re on the river.

When you arrive at the launch point, go over the basics of tubing, river safety, and commands with the river guides and “safety kayakers” who will accompany you. After the briefing, hit the river, riding through a series of easy-going rapids, rolling over “wave trains,” and splashing through holes. Watch for the monkeys, sloths, and toucans that thrive at the edge of the river, and pause partway down for a swim, cool drinks, and fresh fruits.

At the end of your time on the river, dry off for the trip to an area estate, where you can finish the day with a leisurely, country-style lunch. This 6-hour river tubing trip concludes with drop-off at your La Fortuna hotel between 4pm and 4:30pm.

Rafting yes, tubing no
Savara_E
, May 2021
Up a creek without a paddle. Don’t tube. We’re asked to maneuver on the river using our arms. Too difficult to go where they wanted us to go quickly. Nice guys. Great operation. Fun friendly, great fresh fruit and lunch. Worth the cost.

Hi Savara, Thank you for contacting us with feedback on your recent trip with WAVE Rafting. We value every comment that we receive from our customers and strive to improve our services based on the experiences of each visitor. White water tubing gives customers an exciting experience and the freedom to tube wherever the river takes them! And yes, there is a significant amount of hand maneuvering involved in this trip, also this trip includes some splash over ledges, bounce through holes, and ride some wild waves in our specially designed white-water tubes. We want to offer you our most sincere apologies for the inconveniences you experienced whiles tubing with us! Sincerely, Wave Rafting staff.

The guides were real pros. We had a blast on the rapids and really enjoyed the food at the coffee and sugar farm.
