After a short ride in the back of a open-air truck (~10 minutes) we took a small hike to the first waterfall. Our guides, which were both very friendly and spoke perfect English taught us how to use the gear to belay ourselves down. We started on a small (~15 foot) waterfall with one guide on top and one guide... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we did several activities during our ten days there (7/14-7/23), all of them were a lot of fun, well worth the money spent and a great way to see all that C.R. has to offer. That said...our day with Carlos and Juanete at Costa Canyoning was the day that stood out... More

Our time here started with Carlos and Juannie, brothers and awesome guides. A long very rough truck ride up to where you start your uphill hike makes you wonder what you have gotten into, but from there on down it was fantastic. Excellent instruction was given with your safety in mind. Rappelling down the waterfalls was a total blast with... More

This was by far the best part of my honeymoon to Costa Rica! The guides, Carlos and Juan, were amazing. They were so patient and knowledgeable, and I felt very safe the entire time. They even took great pictures for us, the whole time and then burned them on to a cd free of charge. The actual rappelling down waterfalls... More

Carlos and Juane were awesome guides. Super friendly and very experienced with the activity. My wife and I were fortunate enough to be the only ones on the tour, so Carlos added a lot of extra information regarding the plant and animal life, showing us different berries and leaves, such as citronella berries and lime leaves, and explaining their medicinal...

Had a great experience with well qualified guides. Our group consisted of ages 11 to 65 yrs of age. We had a blast and enjoyed the whole tour.

Everyone at Costa Canyoning are top notch. Scotty and Carlos (aka Barney) are both stellar guys and guides. This was our fourth time coming down to Costa Rica and our first time doing the waterfall repelling through CC. Our guide, Barney, was incredibly knowledgeable with plant life and it seemed like he always had an interesting story to tie the... More

Canyoning with Carlos and Jaunete was one of the greatest experiences we've had in Costa Rica! Not only are the guys experts in the sport, incredibly fun and easy going, they took the time to share their knowledge of the local plants and wildlife. We felt safe and secure, learned a lot and had a blast! We even spent time... More

I must admit that a large reason that this tour is excellent is due to the guides. They are very friendly and they make you feel safe during the entire adventure. They let you take your time and explain canyoning in a simple manner. The views during our tour were simply amazing. It was an added bonus that pictures were... More

We spent the day with CC and wish to give them high marks off professionalism and fun. We were your middle age office types and they took good care to get us through the waterfalls and home safely with plenty of stories to share. The scenery is beautiful and upon reflection, can't believe we made it home with smiles. Never... More
