We went on the rappelling tour and combined it with the zip line. Baldo is great at his job and made us all feel very safe. He provided lots of words of encouragement and lots of guidance to get down to the bottom of the cliff. The 15 year old with us loved it. We then ended the day with... More

I have gone on rappelling tours with Aracne Rappelling two years in a row and I plan to go again next year! We brought a group of friends new to Nicaragua this year and it was even better than before. The hike to the rappelling spot is amazing in itself and Baldo is a wealth of knowledge when it comes...

A group of 4 of us went together to go repelling for the first time. We had an incredible time learning about the history of San Juan del Sur as well as repelling down the side of a cliff and swimming to a boat which took us to shore during the sunset. Incredible trip.

This trip was absolutely amazing! Baldo is a genuinely kind friend, that did everything he could to make us comfortable and be helpful. The hike is really fun, with great views and really interesting history! They use great equipment and are very safety-conscious with the rappell. This is such a unique attraction in San Juan Del Sur, and I thoroughly... More

From the moment we were greeted by Baldo, to the second we left, every member in our group thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Not only was this an adventure with breathtaking views, it was also a fun insight into the history of Nicaragua. Baldo is a very professional instructor that made you feel comfortable and calm before you rappelled. He has top... More

We went for the repel but got so much more! We hiked up to the repel point and saw several beautiful views of San Juan. Baldo gave us a captivating history lesson. Were was he when I was sleeping through history class with teachers who droned on and on?!! He is a great story teller. The repel itself was AWESOME!!... More

My friend and I did the hike and rapelling trip with Baldo and his staff. The hike was fun and very informative. We stopped at an old fort and Baldo explained the history of SJDS. Many great views during the hike. Then we repelled down a 375 cliff, landing on some rocks by the ocean. Super fun, adrenaline rush! Once... More

The hike concludes with gorgeous views of the town and the bay. The rappel down is an incredible and empowering experience which I won't soon forget. I highly recommend this tour if... More

This was probably the best thing I did on my trip. Baldo is wonderful- so knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. The hike up was so interesting- especially the stop at the fort- and then rappelling is pure adrenaline all the way down. I felt like I was in a Bond movie when the "getaway boat" comes and you head back to... More

I went on Aracnes rappelling tour for my birthday recently, and it made my birthday a day that I won't soon forget. The tour started off with a short hike up the cliff, where Baldo told us all about the history of San Juan and shared so many interesting facts with us. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows so many... More
