Every member of the staff was very fun and very polite. They all spoke English very well. The waterfalls were amazing and tons of fun to repel down. I never felt like we were ever in danger because they took every precaution to keep everyone very safe.

I loved everything about this tour company. We did the waterfall rappel tour, which includes lunch and coffee and cookies. The overall value is really all about the level of professionalism and friendliness of the guides. Good safety, too. There were a lot of guides and only a few tourists. You can pay for pictures they take or bring a... More

We had a blast canyoning with the Pure Trek crew. We weren't sure how safe we would feel rappelling down waterfalls in a foreign country but this group of guys were pros and made us feel safe while still having a lot of fun. We also did the 1/2 day white water rafting in the afternoon after canyoning with a... More

We had so much fun canyoning with Diego, Sam, Melvin and Jonathan. The staff was very professional and we felt very safe in their hands. The waterfalls and scenery were beautiful. It rained almost the entire time, but that didn't really matter because you get wet anyways. Highly recommend this group!

This trip was super-fun! The guides were really enjoyable and laughed along with us. They also provided a lunch at the end that was a typical Costa Rican meal and it tasted really good after all of the activity!

Went canyoning with Allen, Luis, Charley and Mairon on 11/16 and had a great time. They were a very fun and knowledgeable group. They took time to point out animals and plants along the way. I felt very safe rappelling with these guys. The ride in the 4x4s was so fun and a great way to see the countryside. I... More

We went on a tour with Allen, Enrique, Luis, and Milo. There were four rappels. You will get wet, but they provide warm jackets. There were a couple of people on our tour who were nervous, and the Pure team was very accommodating. All but the third rappel were good for long bounding - "let it rip" as they said.... More

My husband and I had an awesome time on this tour. The guides were very professional, kept the pace up and we felt completely safe. A great way to see the area and waterfalls while getting a thrill. The lunch was also an added bonus! Top notch outfit and well run!

This was my second time doing a canyoning tour and was almost 3 times as much money as the first time (in Vietnam). This along with the lack of novelty may be responsible for my "low" rating. We had a small group (6 of us) but it felt very rushed. The first drop was the highest at 165 feet so... More

My co-workers and I really had a blast! It was every ones first time doing rappel/canyoning. We started at the base (beautiful place) where we had some coffee, then started our trip towards the waterfalls by van, then an adventurous ride on a pick up truck and finally we arrived at the area where the guides get us prepared with...
