This excursion is perfect for adventure people who wants to go in the most extreme rafting in an in a full day. Special for groups of friends and young people with good shape. We lasted about 7 hours doing all the activity in the Balsa River, to only 35 minutes from Fortuna.

The route is through farms and hamlets until we reach the river, from there we will jump to the raft to travel 2 hour and a half along the river. During the ride we will have views of the forest and possible animals on the way.

The Balsa River is located near La Fortuna. In the trip we will include you fresh fruit party and some local beer for the adults. A visit to an organic farm is also part of the trip.
