Canyoning in Costa Rica

Down into the roaring waterfall

A humid, cheerful, and memorable adventure awaits you. Canyoning in Costa Rica involves rappelling down thundering waterfalls and challenging you to be exposed to the elements of nature and face your fears. Of course, it takes a bit of courage, but the professional guides will give you the necessary confidence and the most important tips and abseiling techniques so that you will quickly forget all your worries. 

Equipped with a helmet and harness you make your way to the starting point of the tour. After an introduction, off we go and down the first waterfall where you are guaranteed to get wet, completely. But that’s exactly what makes it so much fun! Surrounded by enchanted jungle you will experience spectacular waterfalls from a perspective that you otherwise only know from photos.
