We have combined ziplining, waterfall rappelling and hiking along with optional swimming and cliff jumping as high as 25 feet. Canyoning is no longer just for die hard adventurers and expert climbers. Now, you have the opportunity to experience true canyoning even if you have never been in a harness.
Just 25 minutes from Jaco we will arrive at our base to start your adventure. After a beautiful 4×4 trip up the mountain you will be outfitted with latest and safest gear from Black Diamond in the USA. You will be instructed on the safe and proper use of our equipment then begin your 5 minute hike to the first zipline. After 2 “zips” over the river we will do a dry training rappel to familiarize you with the proper technique. A short hike down river and we will have some swimming and cliff jumping (4-25’) opportunities if you desire!
Now, it is time to get wet! 4 rappels through the waterfalls and YOU will do it all on your own. At all times you will be “safe and backed up” by your guides! After a short climb up we will exit the canyon and hike 15-20 minutes back to the truck. By the time you are finished you can say “I am a canyoneer!” and can check this off your bucket list. You will then enjoy a tropical fruit snack and a refreshing beverage before returning to your hotel.

The dry season in Costa Rica usually starts around the end of November and ends in April-May. As a consequence, the water levels of rivers and waterfalls decrease noticeably due to the lack of rain during the months of February-May. If you are interested in booking this tour during this period of time, please consider the change in the levels of water before making your final decision.
