Tubbing  from La Fortuna gives customers an exciting experience and the freedom to tube wherever the river takes you! This river float trip passes through class I-II excitement on the Balsa River. Offering a completely different experience than white-water rafting, this white-water tubing trip is sure to create some wild fun on any Costa Rica vacation. Your river guide will guide the group through the best routes as you maneuver through the class I and II rapids. Mid way there is a riverside stop for  a quick fruit break before continuing down the river. Tubing is the perfect way to soak up the sun with family and friends and cool off on a hot Costa Rican day. You will get wet, very wet… but more importantly you will have loads of fun.

After the white water tubing trip enjoy a delicious locally prepared lunch at our organic farm. With a fun sugar cane demonstrations and how local coffee is brewed.

Cancellation by guests

Sometimes your plans may change or unavoidable situations arise that necessitate having to cancel or change your trip plans… we understand that. We provide you with a generous 72-hour cancellation policy for individual bookings, and 7 days for groups, group deposits are non refundable. Please note that our trips depart rain or shine.

However, please understand that once your trip is booked we reserve your space, assign staff and resources to ensure your trip runs smoothly. Since few of these costs are recoverable at the last minute, cancellations or reschedules inside of 72 hours (7 days for groups) of your scheduled trip departure are non-refundable and you will be fully charged.

Cancellation by Costa Rica Descents

Although we rarely cancel our trips, Costa Rica Descents reserve the right to cancel any trips due to low or dangerously high water levels, weather and related conditions or insufficient bookings, a full refund will be made available in this event.

If we do have to cancel we will do everything in our power to offer a comparable substitution, and if we do have time we will contact you to offer a solution, unless river levels rise overnight. As soon as we know we will let you know and at that time you can either cancel with a full refund, or you can choose the solution that we have offered.


Although we take every precaution to ensure that you have a safe and fun trip, white water rafting does have inherent risks. A release/waiver must be signed prior to the trip and is a condition of participation.
