What You Can Expect
Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in the La Fortuna area, after which you?ll transfer to your first activity of the day featuring an exciting zip line adventure through the rainforest canopy.
Strap into your harness and don a helmet as your instructors explain the basics of controlling your speed on the park?s zip lines. Then prepare for fun (and perhaps some adrenaline too) as you fly at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour (70 kilometers per hour) amidst the rainforest treetops like a jungle bird, taking advantage of seven of the zip line course?s best rides. One ride requires a climb up a 54-foot (18-meter) high tower followed by 360-foot (120-meter) ride over a scenic canyon. Another zip line features more than 3,200 feet (980 meters) of cable above La Fortuna Waterfall, making it the longest in the entire park.
After your zipline adventure, hop aboard the trip?s 4×4 jeep and enjoy an included fruit snack as you head to the Balsa River. When you arrive at the whitewater rafting spot, you?ll put on your gear and get an introduction to safe paddling and rafting commands from your guides. Then climb into your raft and prepare to get wet along the Class II and III rapids of this fast-moving waterway. You might even scout sloths, toucans, and monkeys in the surrounding jungle, and have time to spare for a refreshing swim.
When the rafting trip is done, you?ll head to the day?s included lunch spot, where you?ll dig into a typical Costa Rican-style meal served at the traditional country estate. Following lunch, receive a ride back to your hotel in La Fortuna, where you?ll be dropped off between 4 pm and 4:30 pm.
