10 days from our trip and I'm working on our activities. There are some many things to do in the Arenal area and so many tour companies to choose from - I'm a bit overwhelmed.
I'llbe traveling with 2 teens (19 and 18) and I know they would like to raft and rappel. I am looking for a combo where we can raft class II/IV and do a decent rappel trip. So far what I narrowed my choices to are..
1) Costa Descents - they tell me they have access to an upper part of the Balsa river which provides Class III/IV rapids. They can add a rappel to this trip but it's only one rappel (about 150 ft)
2) Desafio - has the Lost Canyon rappel which many people on the forum speak highly of but for rafting they have a 200lb limit. I'm 225lb so unless I go on a crash diet and lose the 25 lb in 10 days it's unlikely I can raft with Desafio.
3) Pure-Trek as a combo - rappel seems comparable to Desafio but thier rafting isonly class II/III
We've already rafted II/III so I was hoping to get a class III/IV in on this trip...
