  • Sit back and relax during a typical local lunch in an authentic rural restaurant

With this fun combination of 2 thrilling activities — waterfall rappelling and whitewater rafting — get a taste of the mountainside wilderness surrounding the Arenal Volcano. The best safety gear will be offered to you, and you will be led by qualified guides. Just sit back and get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Spend the morning rappelling down 200-foot-tall, thundering waterfalls. While free falling, you'll feel like a bird. Jump into the crystal clear lakes of the Lost Canyon. Set off then on 'mother nature's obstacle course', which includes river tracing along the canyon, down-climbing the canyon walls, and scrambling over river rocks. Hold on tight as you ride down the exhilarating Class 2 and 3 rapids of the Rio Balsa while seeing the stunning mountain vegetation and animals. At a rural restaurant, settle into a lunch prepared in the Costa Rican tradition. Take a WiFi-equipped, air-conditioned van back to your accommodation.

Important Information

  • If you need transportation please provide the pick-up location (hotel or identifiable landmark) so we can give you an approximate pick-up time. Otherwise, we can’t provide transportation since we don't know where to find you. On the other hand, if you have your own transportation please let us know so we can provide you with the location that you need to drive to and the time that you need to be there to start this great expedition.
  • It is possible that your pick-up location might be out of route and there would be an extra pick-up/drop-off fee, or it might not be offered from your specific location. If this information is not provided at the time of booking or at least 24 hours before the tour starts, there is a risk of a last-minute service cancellation due to availability or any circumstance beyond our control, and Faro Travel will not be responsible for the loss of any service.
