We recently stumbled into the Costa Rica Descents office in La Fortuna and asked them what we should do the following day. We'd just done a different 2 day rafting trip so were hesitant to spend more time of our trip rafting. Alberto and Warner convinced us that the trip on the Balsa River would no doubt impress us.
They promised we'd have a great time on our trip and they didn't disappoint. I'm rarely surprised by great service, and I was BLOWN AWAY by the Costa Rica Descents team. Safety, professionalism, bang for your buck, etc, I would recommend them for any tour or trip that they offer.
We went on the Upper Balsa trip and it was amazing. The rapids were intense, the guides and safety boaters made sure we had a safe, but fun time. They even threw in a waterfall rappel for the two of us to make our day.
An incredible few hours rafting then we were greeted by dry towels on the transport van (luxury compared to most raft trips). They then took us to an organic farm that is completely self sufficient and sustainable for a delicious lunch. The food, the coffee, the service, all wonderful.
