Our family of six (ages 8-68) visited Costa Rica in July, 2014. We had activities planned for every day, and we did the waterfall canyon rappelling on our third day. It rained every day, pretty much all day, while we were in Costa Rica, and while I was looking forward to this activity, I was pretty sure we would be... More

Our visit to the Arenal/La Fortuna region has been great - but this was our family favorite. My wife and I, and 19, 16 and 12 year-old kids had never been rappelling. Our guides were fantastic! Very helpful, professional and worked very hard to insure everyone had a memorable experience. As for a couple of comments about the lunch and... More

My eleven year old daughter and I decided we were going to abandon the rest of our family to do this amazing trip. (The younger kids were afraid, and my husband got to scuba dive without us so he made it up to me by watching the littles.) It was wonderful! Out of our 2.5 active weeks in Costa Rica,... More

This was such a great experience and everyone is so welcoming!! They teach you the safety rules of how to properly rappel off of waterfalls. It's so fun and I am glad we decided to do it!!

Wow! Picture falling off a cliff - backwards!! Once you realize when they tell you to sit back, you do not fall but actually sit in mid air, your heart resumes beating! Then you are jumping down these waterfalls and it is awesome!This was just so much fun, totally scary at first, but then completely exhilarating! My kids (13 &... More

We spent two days in La Fortuna, Costa Rica and took the Canyoning Tour with Pure Trek. We rappelled down a 165 ft. waterfall! What a rush!! The guides made it very easy and my two kids, ages 14 and 10, had a blast! It was so beautiful and truly a once in a lifetime experience!!

I was in Costa Rica for a study abroad and we went to Arenal for one weekend. We did the Canyoning tour with Pure Trek and they were fantastic. We rappelled down 4 waterfalls (one was 165 feet tall!) and had such a blast. The guides were all great - very funny too. The photographer did a fantastic job getting... More

This trip was a blast. Pure adrenaline rush. The company is very professional, the guides were great and the equipment top notch. I've never done this and would do it again in a heartbeat! The first rappel was down a 165 ft waterfall. I believe there were 4-5 waterfalls and you land in the water pool below. The guides know... More

For our family of five which includes 3 boys between the ages of 22-17, this was one of the best tours we did on our recent trip to Costa Rica. Ruiz and Jonathan and Jason were so helpful and friendly and funny! The rappelling was a ton of fun and we never felt unsafe. Can't wait to get the pictures.... More
