One of the most exciting ways to go down a river is lying on an inner tube, that winds around bends and passes along calm water, white water and through adrenalin pumping chutes. Our water tubing adventure is fun for all adults looking for excitement and we consider this Costa Rica’s best tubing tour. Rocks tower out of the water but are blocked by the tube like a bumper car, sending you in another direction, spinning forward or backward. Being in close contact with the water means that whoever doesn’t hold on may fall out of the tube. The lush rainforest forms a picturesque periphery, through canyons and thick jungle. In fact the sound of blue water rushing past is quiet compared to the resident howler monkeys, insects and birds.
The tubing takes place in the rain forest along the amazing blue water river, Rio Azul. The drop-off point is a short distance from Blue River Resort & Hot Springs and the adventure lasts approximately 2 ½ hours. Prepare for an unforgettable water tubing experience that is pure pleasure.
After water tubing, spend time at Blue River Resort & Hot Springs, with its four gorgeous natural mineral “green” hot spring pools, mud baths, the botanical gardens with over 700 varietals, the butterfly farm, the fresh water pool with bullet waterslide and much more.
