Arenal Costa Rica Rafting and Hot Springs Comb Tour

Combo Tour, Whitewater Rafting, Hot Springs, Dinner

Combine two of the most popular tours in Arenal Costa Rica! A full day of fun, adventure and relaxation, what could be better?

Your day will start with a pick up from you Arenal hotel in our comfortable a/c Desafio van. You will be then driven to the Rio Balsa and taken to our private put-in, equipped with changing rooms for your convenience. Your experienced bilingual guides will give you a safety talk with paddling instructions, NRS life jackets, and Pro-Tech helmets. You will have a chance to ask any questions about the tour!

Your group and guide will paddle through fun & safe rolling rapids with names like "Congo Loco" & "Rock around the Croc" and the very technical and challenging “Las Dragas” section. You will padde along 10 kilometers of lush Costa Rican rainforest and have a chance to play around in tranquil river pools in an isolated rainforest river canyon, whilst having a tropical fruit break. 

You’ll be on the water for about 2 to 2.5 hours, during this time hopefully you'll get to see lots of wildlife like monkeys, sloths, and tropical birds such as Ospreys, Oropendolas and Toucans. The Río Balsa is dam-controlled, so good water levels are available all-year long! Afterwards you will be treated to a delicious home-cooked meal! When you are ready, we'll take you to the hotsprings where you can just relax. There is a small bar where you can treat yourself to a delicious cocktail (not included).

Paradise Hot Springs is surrounded by beautiful gardens, waterfalls and tropical flowers. There are a number of different pools to choose from, all a variety of temperatures. Also on the property are free-lockers and a lovely restaurant. When you are done soaking in the pools, change your clothes and prepare yourself for an evening meal in the restaurant to top the night off!
