One of Costa Rica's last hidden gems, Rio Perdido translates as the ‘lost river' – but you won't be getting lost with this zipline and tubing adventure in the canyon. And after all those exertions, you'll get to relax in the soothing, sulphuric waters of its hot springs.You'll take on a Tarzan swing, a 30-metre challenge bridge and five ziplines, with a top height of 250 metres. Then, you can lie back as you tube down the river. You won't be alone as brightly coloured birds and monkeys look on from the forest. Keep an eye out for the hot waterspouts along the rock walls, too. After lunch, it's time for another dip, but this time in the mineral-rich waters of the thermal river. The gorge draws its energy from the deep magma flow. You'll also head south to the hot river pool where you can slather each other in vitamin-enriched volcanic mud.You can also make your own way there by availing of our 4x4 vehicle hire – for a minimum of four guests – or be driven in a private minivan.
‘Left', ‘right', ‘get down' – no, not an aggressive gym instructor but what you'll hear as you make your way down the River Tenorio rapids. After driving to the heart of Guanacaste, you'll raft through the rainforest, so keep an eye out for wildlife. Costa Rica is rated as one of the best spots in the world for whitewater rafting, and there's a reason why – category 3 and 4 rapids, set against a lush tropical backdrop. Your world-champion guide will steer you through the rapids and over the falls as you navigate the 13km route. After you've dried off, you'll be treated to a spot of lunch.

Passing the smoking vents and fumaroles of the park's namesake volcano, we arrive at Oropendula waterfall for a swim. After a refreshing dip in the cascading waters, there's a delicious lunch to enjoy. Finally, you're off for a well-earned hot spring soak and a natural mud bath in the steamy geothermal pools – the perfect way to round off your day.

Here, the adrenaline will really kick in, as you spin and bounce your way down the river in your individual raft.
