Great group of guides. My wife and I and our 2 teenage daughters had a great time. We loved that we were deep in the rain forest amongst beautiful waterfalls. One of our favorite activities while in Costa Rica for 8 days.

We did the waterfall rappeling tour and it was one of the highlights of our trip! Our family (with kids 13, 11, 9) all loved it and highly recommend it. The guides are very friendly and do a great job of keeping you from getting too nervous.

We got picked up, zip lined all morning, then a shuttle to took us to Pure Trek for our lunch and waterfall rappelling. (Just FYI it is 2... More

I went on this tour with two of my kids. We did have fun but they can still improve the experience. The equipment is a little old. the gloves, which you do need, are not in good shape at all. Their transpiration vans are as old as they come. And they need proper place to change clothes and lock up... More

This was our second time with Pure Trek. This time we brought our 13 & 9 year old kids. The first fall is the scariest, after that it's fun and beautiful. Our kids LOVED it, especially the "monkey drop". We are very adventurous, so my only complaint is the lack of control. I felt like the guides didn't let us... More

I was terrified of going over the "edge" with the waterfall rappelling, but the guides made it fun and exciting. What a great experience! They made sure that you had a safe descent and didn't hit any rocks on the way down. Loved it! It is cooler in this mountain area, so I recommend no sleeveless tops. We wore "active... More

Guides were great and safety was first. Respected my fear of repelling, but by the last waterfall, I was comfortable with it. Very enjoyable and safe way to try a "extreme" sport while seeing the rainforest. Will get wet, but that doesn't matter.

The trip was so much fun! Safety was a priority and the guides always made sure I felt safe. We repelled down four waterfalls (don't look down the first one). Be prepared to get wet!!!

Great experience for waterfall rapeling! Guides were very nice and geared the "drop" to what the individual wanted(ie fast or slow). No complaints. Loved the singing guide at the bottom of the falls!!! Food was good and kids loved the chocolate milk treat at end. Definitely recommend
