Balsa River Upper section class IV Unique 100% safe and Fun
Not only was the white water rafting class IV incredibly safe and fun within itself, but the guides made it that much more memorable.
After our amazing adventure, we were taken to a restaurant on an organic Farm for lunch , called Finca Educativa Don Juan, where we had the most delicious homestyle Costa Rican meal ever!
The best meal of our entire trip, 90% organic too.
If you visit La Fortuna, you have to go with Costa Rica Descents
So incredibly glad we did.

We had the best time on our Decents rafting trip. We did the class 3-4 trip with our kids age 12-19 followed by lunch at a local farm. The whole experience was great. The raft trip was extremely fun. We were a bit nervous about the class 4 rapids, but with a great guide. we got through all the rapids with big smiles on our faces. Our guide, Alex was not only an excellent guide on the river, but also extremely knowledgeable about the plants and animals along the way. He also provided an interesting and fun tour of the farm after our delicious lunch.

What an amazing group of people! We did the Class 2-3 rafting followed by lunch at an eco-farm. Pickup was on time, Our guide Eric was informative and fun. The rafting was well-guided and enjoyable. The eco-farm experience, culminating in sugarcane moonshine, was just great. There was not 1 thing said about tips etc; instead, an earnest talk about the importance of being conscious of our environment and conservation. Bravo!!
