Picked up at hotel on time. Guide explained procedures well. Everyone was very professional. Rapelling is an adrenaline rush. Anyone can do it. Some walking, climbing steps and ladders required. Rain or shine, you will get wet. Our small group finished in 2 hrs. Afterwards, we went to their office for a traditional lunch, very delicious. While eating, view your... More

My husband and I rappelled waterfalls near Arenal with Pure Trek last week (January 2016). We had such a blast!! The guides were so helpful and knowledgeable, the equipment was well maintained and we felt very safe and comfortable. I have never done anything like this, and am afraid of heights, but they made it so easy to succeed. Be... More

We did water rappelling and it went too quickly. They say anyone can do this of any age because they mainly rappel you down rather than you doing anything yourself. It goes very quickly and I don't think it's that much worth it. The staff is great, they provide a decent lunch, everything is well scheduled, etc. They take pics... More

We spent the morning rappelling waterfalls at the base of Arenal. Pure Trek is extremely professional. The staff is great and very attentive. We finished the tour with a fantastic lunch back at the Pure Trek facility. I highly recommend.

I initially wanted to use a different company to do this excursion, but when we got to our hotel, we booked thru them and they used Pure Trek for this activity. I was a little skeptical at first, but our excursion turned out great. We were rushed on the last couple of waterfalls because we did a combo (rappel &... More

We just got back from our 8 day trip to Costa Rica, and this was the first of our many excursions. Our guides were Diego and Enrique, and they were freaking awesome- super professional, funny, and made sure we had a great time. We were lucky enough to have this tour all to ourselves, so we got lots of individualized... More

I was terrified to do the repelling in the waterfalls but thought it would be a great way to start the new year. The staff at Pure Trek was incredible. I was ready to back out at the top but the staff was so good at what they do that they made me feel safe and secure. They go through... More

A fabulous tour, from beginning to end. From the safety talk and orientation, equipment fitting, and full experience, the staff were both professional and enthusiastic. The canyons themselves were exhilarating. You start with the biggest one - dropping 165 metres beside a waterfall, and into the waterfall - Oh yeah, you may (will) get wet. 5 canyons in all, wit

We did the canyoning/repelling tour and had the time of our lives. We were first timers with zero experience, but the staff ensure we were always safe and prepared. We had a blast and this was one of the most fun tours we did while in the Arenal area. Highly recommend for all thrill seekers looking to climb/jump down waterfalls.... More
