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

This was by far the best experience we had in Costa Rica. The guides were amazingly funny but their main concern was our safety. Carlos was extremely knowledgeable. He talked to us every step of the way so we were never frightened and enjoyed the whole experience. Throughout the day he explained and showed us the magic of the rain... More

I have traveled to over 15 countries and done some pretty amazing things but this by far was one of my favorite adventures that I've ever been on. Not only do you do the obvious (rappel from waterfalls) but the hosts stop to show you animals and plants. They are hilarious and so much fun!! It's one of the most... More

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.
