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

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
