I did the Waterfalls Rappelling with Pure Trek. They pick you up and drive you to the property. They feed you and then take you on the adventure of your life. Very patient with me, I'm a terrified chicken when it comes to heights. They wouldn't let me back out and I would've regretted if I did. It was wonderful.... More

Two other Moms and I all brought our 16 year old sons on this canyoning adventure and had an exhilarating experience. The staff was so nice and helped calm our nervousness and after the first rappel we were hooked! It was so safe and they were so patient and helpful since none of us had rappelled before. The scenery is... More

We took our grandkids tonCosta Rica and were looking for an adventure with some safety. Every review about the canyoning/waterfall tour was stunning. We could not have had more fun. The kids were eager and unafraid, our fears ended after our first waterfall and from there it was joy and exhilaration. The team was professional and fun. They could not... More

We had so much fun rappelling the waterfalls. The guides were helpful, knowable and fun! I felt very safe the entire time as the guides are so patient and did a great job explaining what and how to rappel the waterfalls. The waterfalls and surrounding areas are so beautiful. The only problem with this trip was that there werent enough... More

I had not been repelling before. Before the first repel, they teach everyone how to repel and explain the harness. If you are a first timer, they will do your harness differently than they way it was explained. You will be lowered by them, with your main rope serving as a back up rope. They will do this without explaining... More

I hate heights... stopped skiing out west because of heights.. stopped doing a lot because of the fear. Soooo i decided to do something about, repel the waterfalls in Costa Rica! once you get on the trucks to go up the mountains there is no turning back... walking to the first 165ft fall was mentally exhausting! waiting for my turn...

It was our first time rapelling although our teenage daughter has done technical climbing with ropes before. Our group had about 20 people,so the waits weren't very long and we could all hear instructions. It was very scary going over the first cliff and having to rely on the ropes. I enjoyed myself more and more as we continued through... More

Exciting but not scary. Awesome repelling. Try it, you will love it! The nearby waterfall was beautiful and I wanted to repeal down the middle but for safety reasons, we went to the side. Of the fall. Exciting.

This was a great afternoon out - "rappelling" or abseiling down four drops, three of which were (very) wet. We were picked up from our hotel, taken to the Pure Trek base, and had a light lunch (chicken, beans, rice) with juice or water. Then we transferred to where we met the guides and got our equipment. Note: the jackets... More
