Class I-II White-Water Tubing and Kalambu Hot Springs Water Park Combo Tour from La Fortuna - Arenal

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Start with 10:30am pickup at your hotel in La Fortuna, and travel to the Balsa River in an air-conditioned coach (all equipment is provided, and you can bring a change of dry clothes to leave in the bus while you’re on the river). 

    Go over the basics of tubing and river safety, then hit the river, riding through a series of easy-going rapids, rolling over “wave trains,” and splashing through holes. Watch for the monkeys, sloths, and toucans that thrive at the edge of the river, and pause partway down for a swim, cool drinks, and fresh fruits. At the end of your time on the river, dry off for the trip to an area estate, where you can refuel Costa Rican-style with a leisurely, country lunch.

    The final stop of the day is Kalambu Hot Springs Water Park, a complex of family-friendly water features that includes an interactive play area, thermal pools, and water slides. Kalambu Hot Springs Water Park also has a swim-up bar and an onsite restaurant, along with lockers and towels that are available for your use. This 9-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your La Fortuna hotel between 7:30pm and 8pm.
