My wife and I went canyoning with this group and it was fantastic. The guides were great. They all kept us entertained the entire trip. The experience consist of 4 different waterfall repels, a baby 24 ft repel and lunch. The group we were with were great and made the experience even better. Bring dry clothes and a waterproof camera.... More

Jorge did a terrific job leading our group over the waterfall! It was a great introduction to canyoneering.

It was our first time rappelling and Pure Trek did a great job of instructing us how to properly rappel safely. I would definitely recommend booking a trip with these guys however, there are only 5 rappels which is kind of a bummer. We booked it with a water rafting trip afterwards which was also amazing because they were level... More

Rappelling is lots of fun! The team was very friendly, experienced, and fun - they took some of my nervousness away with their joking around! I didn't get to see as much of the waterfall as I wanted as we were at the back of the line so we were always rushing to the next part! There is a tarzan... More

My wife and I rappelled with Pure Trek while staying near Arenal. This company really puts safety first, and you'll have two lines supporting you in case one of them fails (which is very unlikely as is). They really did a great job of catering to beginners, yet the first waterfall rappel was such a shock! It's huge! Be prepared... More

We had a great morning Canyoning with Pure Trek - the team are all clearly experienced and know what they're doing when it comes to safety. Michael, who gave us our initial safety talk, was great. The whole activity was well organised but challenging too. We rappelled (abseiled) down 5 waterfalls and had to do a free fall drop. The... More

My husband and I are pretty adventurous, he has repelled before but I hadn't. The trip with Pure Trek was fun but you start off with the biggest waterfall (around 140' I think) and then it's all smaller ones after that. The guides were great, safety focused and it was family friendly. We were hoping for something a little more... More
