Hiking and rappelling through this jungle canyon with Costa Canyoning was just pure fun as part of our 10 day adventure vacation in Costa Rica. I have played in canyons and canyon rivers before, but this canyon in the jungle was just more fun than can be described. I had no real prior rappelling experience and the guides made sure... More

Apparently another couple was supposed to join us, but cancelled! So my girlfriend and I had a great canyoning adventure with our lead guide and two assistant guides who were all wonderful and very helpful. I had never rappelled or canyoned before so I was a newbie, but they gave great instructions and kept us safe at all times. It... More

My wife and I started the tour at the restaurant that serves as Costa Canyoning's rally point. It all starts off with a quick intro to your gear (helmet and harness) and to your guides (Carlos and Juanete). The guides are phenomenal. Yes, you're going to be going over backwards perpendicular to several waterfalls. Yes, it's slippery and you'll really... More

First time canyoning and the whole family (kids are 10 and 12) had a terrific time. Tomaki, from Japan, was great with the kids and provided easy instructions. It is short ride up to the first waterfall where you learn the basics of canyoning. Before you know it you are rappelling down the waterfall with 5 more to follow--each bigger... More

My teenager loved this trip into a beautiful canyon descending a series of waterfalls by rappelling. The guides were fun and competent and you felt great being able to go from complete novice to descending vertical slick faces while in a waterfall . Never done anything like it 👍

We had a spectacular time on our canyoning tour with Carlos and Juanete! I surprised my boyfriend with this tour for his birthday, and he was thrilled. We are pretty active but don't have much experience with climbing or rappelling, but we immediately felt comfortable with the experience - everything feels very safe and controlled, but still with the aspect...

From the 4x4 ride at the start to the local watering hole swim at the end of the trip. You realize this is not your average vacational experince. Everything is done like a local. Canyoning is a sport that made us fell like we accomplished somehting on our trip. Be prepared to overcome your fears and find your away down... More

Our group had the best time with Carlos and Juanete! They were both so friendly, patient and they made us feel safe and secure. Canyoning was by far the highlight of the trip! Carlos even hung out with us after the tour was over and showed us a local watering hole to go swimming in. I would recomend this tour... More

I'd never rappelled down dry rocks much less through waterfalls before this trip. It was an AMAZING day! Our guides Barney and Juanny were super-knowledgable and made this novice feel completely safe. Pack your Tevas and your sense of adventure and have fun!

I'm a thrill seeker and this ticked all the boxes for me! Our guides were absolutely spectacular, helpful, made me feel safe and made sure we had fun. It was very scary and I slipped on my very first waterfall but laughed and Carlos eased me back into it and I had a great time. I got more comfortable with... More
