White Water Rafting class V

If you’re looking for an extreme adventure on the Balsa River, this white-water rafting tour is a great pick. Paddle your way down six miles (9.6 kilometers) of nearly non-stop white water—most rafting companies don’t take this extreme route on the Upper Balsa, so it’s unlikely that you’ll see any other rafts as you head through the rain forest canyon. This tour includes an extra stop at the El Salto swimming hole and lunch.

The Descents company was friendly, courteous, and our guide Orlando was the BEST! He knew where each of the rapids were, and knew where to point out the wildlife during rafting. Most of all, if you like water he got you wet on purpose, and if you don't like water, well he put
