We found "Puretrek" travel on the "Costa Rica Tourism Official Website" and were thrilled with the custom designed itinerary, including transportation, that Delvis set up for my husband myself & our three teens. We did canyoning, zip-line, whitewater rafting, catamaran/snorkel and hot springs. Everything was just fantastic. The excursions were great. The guides were professional and informative. Our accommodations, Tabacon... More

It was a first time for our family of four including a 6 year old to rappel down waterfalls. We had no comparison but had a great time with Pure Trek. After the first one, our 6 year old was no longer scared and started enjoying the activity. Prepared to get wet, but that's part of the fun!

In this tour Pure trek partners with Wave Expeditions for a great combination tour. Pure Trek handles the canyoning (rappelling) portion of the day. Let me begin with the fact that I work in rigging for lighting and I felt very safe with the guides and the quality the equipment. The guides gave great instructions, if you have never rappelled...

Great time rappelling down the waterfalls. One of our favorite activities on our trip! Guides were friendly, knowledgable, and able to communicate well with non spanish speaking tourists.

My family and I all agree that this was the most fun thing we did in Costa Rica. The staff was professional and helped us feel safe. The setting was beautiful and we appreciated the professional pictures that came with the tour. And, rappelling is just crazy fun! The reason that I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is... More

We had such a good time doing this that we were sad there were only four rappels and then we were done for the day. The area is so beautiful and the team that worked with us was so wonderful! We felt confident that we were in good hands and safety wasn't a concern for us. Very well done but... More

My GF, who's never rappelled before, and I had a great time with these guys. Our Spanish, is pretty bad, luckily their English was good. The guides were friendly and safe, the waterfall rappels were fun, all in all a great afternoon.

We signed up for the afternoon waterfall rappelling session. What a treat! After a brief lesson we did our first rappel down a 165 foot waterfall. Exhilarating experience. the tour consists of four rappers - three down waterfalls and one down a small canyon wall. Our group included 25 people but was very well staffed with knowledgable experienced guides. Safety... More

My husband and I spent 8 days in Costa Rica, and canyoning with Pure Trek was hands down our favorite part of the trip. It was just so FUN! The guides were friendly and professional, had great rapport with our group, and we felt safe the entire time - although, of course, that first step is nerve-wracking!! Lunch afterwards was... More
