Cannot say enough about how much fun this was! The staff was great and friendly. Lunch was organic. A group of tourists all together on the beginning become friends at the end. The entire tour, the guides make you feel safe and the photographer was great. He took awesome pictures and his friendly personality was a plus. Highly recommend them!

This was an amazing adventure activity. We had 10 people who had never repelled (5 adults, 4 teens, and an 11 year old). The guides were really friendly and encouraging, and were very professional. The first repel was so thrilling! It was much higher and intense than I expected, but that made it sooo cool. There is one rock wall... More

My three sons and I were excited to go rappelling. This was a fun trip but BIG tour. The meal they served prior to the rappel was fair-interesting to try local cuisine. The large group was then taken to the rappel site (after getting our equipment). The gist of the whole tour is you 'hike' a little then rappel and... More

Such an adrenalin rush! The guides are very experienced and friendly and help you the whole way through. One recommendation: try to get the earlier tour so maybe a smaller group. We went later in the day and our group was big (19 people) and there was some wait time in between waterfalls that I would have preferred less of.... More

Each year Grandma and Grandpa take our 7 older teenage grandchildren on a weeks long vacation. This year Costa Rica was our destination. We like to have several half day adventures for all of us to do. The Canyoning Waterfall Rappel through Pure Trek was a high light of trip. All of us rappelled down through 3 waterfalls and one...

This was an amazing tour. The guides were very knowledgeable of the area and where very funny. My equipment was checked several times and for me safety was the number one concern of the guides. The pictures of the forest and waterfalls do not capture the beauty of the area. I was in awe of how beautiful the landscape is.... More

We absolutely loved this tour. I had booked it before and were glad we did. They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back off at the end. So worth it. The waterfall repel, monkey drop, and canyon climbing were unforgettable. The guides were very friendly and knowledgable. Even though we were the oldest people on this tour,... More

I loved everything about this experience! They made us a wonderful lunch before we headed out into the mountains. The staff was very knowledgeable and made me feel completely safe. They were also able to point out different animals and birds in the jungle as we hiked from one waterfall to the next. I would say this is a must... More

Adrenaline pumping fun for everyone. My wife and I threw ourselves out into space over water falls and the rainforest only to find one of the most memorable experiences in Costa Rica we've had. The guides are masters of easing nerves. We watched as they helped a woman deathly afraid of heights find the courage and do the monkey jump...and... More

My travel group went waterfall repelling and canyoneering with Pure Trek. I will admit, I was a bit fearful to repel down waterfalls. The staff quickly eased my nerves with such professionalism, yet with compassion. I'm so glad I did this activity. It was one of the most AMAZING experiences of my life. The waterfalls ranged from 25 to 200+... More
