This was the best adventure we had while in Costa Rica! I went with a group of 9 friends. It's not for the faint of heart, but in the end, everyone was happy they did it. It's exhilarating, creates camaraderie, is extremely original, and just a fantastic time. Also, our guide - Barney - is THE MAN. He made us... More

I highly recommend this experience to anyone with an spark of adventure lighting their spirit. I traveled to Costa Rica last week with a group of old college friends and we met the Costa Canyoning guys at a bar in Domincal. After watching a youtube video, we were easily convinced this was an excursion we just had to go on.... More

Our adventure with Costa Canyoning was just amazing! Guides Danley, Barney and Juanete were really professional, friendly, helpful and super fun. They took care of everything, especially of safety, great instructions, and even taking photos of us. River with its waterfalls and jungle surroundings is simply spectacular. We even saw tukanes and many rare, colourful frogs. We were enjoying this... More

My wife and I (30 & 32 yrs old) went canyoning the first week of September 2014 during our 7 night honeymoon to Uvita, Costa Rica. We were directed to Costa Canyoning via our hotel concierge (Kura Design Vilas). We had an absolute blast. I had been canyoning 12 years prior in Switzerland with some college buddies and my wife...

Our guides, Barney (Carlos) and Juane (Greivin), were helpful, fun and super friendly! They picked us up from their operating base and we went in a pickup to the river. They took their time to explain the techniques, and we both felt totally safe when rappelling down the waterfalls. Between falls they pointed out all sorts of plants and animals,... More

Everyone recommended we do this and it totally lived up to the hype. Both guides (they're brothers) Carlos and Johnny were incredible. They made sure safety and fun were always in play and it proved to be an amazing experience. It's like having a private adventure in the middle of the jungle. Seriously, one of the best excursions I've ever... More

What an adventure! Spectacular views and tons of adrenaline. We recommended the tour to two other couples staying at our hotel, both of whom had the same reaction to the experience. Our guides made us feel very safe and comfortable. They were even smart enough to remind us to take in the views as there were many times when we... More

My newlywed wife and I did this last week on our honeymoon. It was hands-down the best thing we did in Costa Rica! We had 3 guides: Danly, Barney and another one who we unfortunately forget his name. These 3 are real pros and above that they are incredible people to be around in general. They are focused but lighthearted... More

My husband booked this adventure for our fit family of three: two adults 50+ and a 20-something son. Leave everything behind including wallets, glasses, hats and your camera. The trip begins with a bone-rattling truck ride to the river, where you get a quick safety briefing and then try your luck on a small waterfall. It is very counter-intuitive to... More

I took my two teenage sons on this, and all three of us loved it. You really get into the Costa Rican wilderness, and the experience of learning to abseil down the waterfalls is amazing. (It's easier than it looks!) The guides were excellent - patient and encouraging, and always clearly with an eye to safety. We felt well looked... More
