Most people try Zip-lining in this area but I would definitely suggest the canoyoning tour if you are looking for some adventure. Although it is a bit nerve racking at first the guides humor and personalities ease the tension. They were all so helpful and fun and made the experience amazing. Jonathon, Gio, and Enrique, to name a few, made... More

We had a great time rappelling. My 76 year old dad loved it! As did our teenagers. The staff was very good, they made it feel very safe. Beautiful area. Highly recommended.

This was AWESOME!!! We took our family of four (2 adults and 2 boys – 12 and 13 years old) to Costa Rica for ten days in March 2015 and waterfall rappelling was one of the “must do” activities we had planned. It was amazing. The Pure Trek team was great. They are extremely professional and safety conscious and ensure... More

We did the waterfall rappelling. It was very cool, and exhausting! We were both kind of bummed about the last waterfall rappel, when the tour guides were messing with us. But overall, the guys leading were very silly and a lot of fun!! Jorge was a guide and was absolutely excellent.

I was a little concerned-a 54 year old rappeling down waterfalls, but I shouldn't have been. Vey safe ad professional. The guides offer encouragement and were fun. Just a fantasic time-very exhilerating! My suggestion? Don't bother taking sunscreen or bug spray. You really don't need either one. For my age, the steps up were difficult. Take your time!

Ok - Super Safe - They can totally control the pace you go down so seriously enjoy the ride and work on your technique! LOVED this adventure - my highlight of CR trip for sure. Be prepared to get wet. I recommend quick dry pants and shirt vs shorts for women :) just less chance of scraping a leg as... More

We went waterfall rappelling with PureTrek.. What an incredible experience. We started our adventure by having lunch at the PureTrek headquarters.. Lunch was delicious and fresh. From there, we were briefed by our guides as to what to expect. We were a little nervous, but the guides are very knowledgeable, and made us feel incredibly safe the entire time. The... More

My wife found this trip as part of our week long adventure package with Anywhere Costa Rica. There are so many good things I could say about this experience. The views are stunning the entire time as you get to see the mountains and valleys on the drive, and then the luscious rainforest up close and personal, and of course... More

This was probably my favorite excursion/tour in Costa Rica. We did the Canyoning and the tour was run very efficiently, and with it being located only 30 minutes outside of downtown, we were able to get the entire tour in before noon. I can also say with confidence that I don't know when I'll have the opportunity to rappel down... More
