White Water Tubing Costa Rica

White Water Tubing is an activity where you use a large, inflatable raft (your tube) to float down a body of water, using both the natural rapids and your own steering. Tubing is different from white water river rafting in that each individual is in their own tube, instead of everyone being grouped into one raft. The tubes are safe because they are covered by a canvas that is tough enough to protect against puncture. A white water rafting tube will also have some safety and comfort features, including side handles, inflatable head or back rests, and center seats. You don’t use a paddle when tubing, but instead steer using the side handles, and by using your own hands to paddle and push through the water. River Drift adventure will start, traveling on an exciting tour through the Piedras Negras River. Sky River Drift is a fast water path with controlled rapids travelled on individual rafts. The thrill of being carried by the current towards the rapids and the force of inertia that dominates the raft is a mixture in which any adventurer will be satisfied in their pursuit of adrenaline and fun.
