We had an amazing experience. We repelled down several waterfalls. It was so much fun. The staff spoke good english and safety was their first priority. I highly recommend this company. The lunch was amazing. We are vegetarian and we got a terrific lunch.

We were recommended this tour by another couple we met at our hotel. The canyoning trip had us rappelling into and down waterfalls. The three waterfalls ranged from 45 to 165 feet and the tour also included one free fall drop and hiking through the rainforest. Rappelling was pretty easy and they taught us everything we need to know. The... More

Fantastic canyoning tour with Pure Trek. The activity itself was a blast. Our kids aged 11 to 15 loved it. The heights never bothered anyone in our group. The guides were great. They were helpful and told us all kinds of information about the area. They really went above and beyond and seemed genuinely happy to do it. Would highly... More

BUT.. if you are like me and my boyfriend.. extremely active and adventurous... skip this. The guides are very informative and very helpful along the way. They even rushed us through knowing we...

We did a half day waterfall rappel tour with PureTrek. The staff was great - thanks Mairon! - and we thoroughly enjoyed both the adventure and the scenery. We saw a blue jeans dart frog, learned about the walking palm trees, enjoyed the surrounding farmland and learned about the crops, and generally soaked up (literally) the natural surroundings. Lunch back... More

My travel agent told me this is the new hot tour in Costa Rica, now that everyone has tried the ziplines. I didn't really know what I was getting us into, and I'm glad I didn't because I never would have tried it! Being immersed in the rain forest was wonderful, and the falls were just gorgeous. And then there... More

This is a fantastic experience. I did with wife and 2 kids (7 and 11). The whole experience is just unforgettable. The lunch is fantastic. The ride to the canyons is an experience in itself. The canyoning is just crazy. Very fun and a real one of a kind adventure. The guides have such great attitudes and are extremely safe.... More

This was so much fun! One of my favorite activities we did on this trip! Jonathan was very helpful and fun! They provide a nice lunch afterward and do a pick up/drop off to your hotel. Don't forget to bring: Clothes you can get wet in (dry fit works best) Watershoes (I wore closed toed and that worked better than... More

Rappelling first timer and it could not have been a better experience. We had so much fun throughout the entire experience. The guides were very knowledgable and kept the excitement going through their positive and outgoing attitude. You must try this in Costa Rica, this was the highlight of our trip.

Let me first start with my travel agent recommended this company over all the others because he felt that they are extremely safety oriented. That being said, what a thrill! The very first cliff is the largest one and you rappell beside the waterfall...until the end (beware of prankster belayers!) The last cliff you are rappelling IN the waterfall the... More
