One of the most exciting ways to go down a river is lying on a rubber inner tube, winding around bends, and passing through calm water, white water and adrenalin pumping chutes. Our water tubing adventure is fun for all adults looking for excitement and we consider it Costa Rica’s premier 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. The lush rainforest forms a picturesque periphery, through canyons and thick greenery. In fact, the sound of blue water rushing past is quiet compared to the howler monkeys, insects and birds.
The tubing takes place along the famous blue-water river, Rio Celeste in the rainforest or nearby Rio Negro, depending upon the season. The drop-off point is a short distance from Blue River Resort & Hot Springs and lasts 2 1/5 hours. Prepare for an unforgettable water tubing experience that is pure pleasure.
*Being in close contact with the water means that whoever doesn’t hold on correctly may fall out of the tube. Please use caution and follow all directions when tubing.
