“Awesome positive rock climbing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

My girlfriend and I have been coming to Montezuma from Boston, MA for a few years. This last trip before heading down there we saw a blog post on the Montezuma beach website and decided to try rock climbing in Costa Rica. We met Jordan at the bottom of the falls and after a short hike we were at the spot where we climb from. I have been climbing for a few months at an indoor gym in Boston but the area Jordan selected to climb in had trails for all levels of climbing. The climb is picturesque and a new way to enjoy Montezuma falls. Jordan was awesome, extremely skilled, positive and knowledgable. He really likes helping people grow as climbers and always makes sure you are safe. He walked us through safety instructions and even showed me how to use a grigri as it was my first time climbing outside. We started with a few easier trails to warm up and moved over to more difficult ones. The hard ones were both very fun and challenging. We climbed with Jordan twice on our vacation and wished we could've done it more. If you're looking for an exciting, unique and physically challenging activity fueled by positive vibes this is for you. Bring sunblock, snacks and plenty of water. And you can go swimming when you're done at beautiful Montezuma falls. I can't say enough great things about this!

“Beautiful location, helpful instructor, lots of fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Booked climbing for two beside the waterfall. Beautiful location and a great place to cool down after a hard climb.

Four routes, 5.6 - 5.10C, on a roughly 100ft wall.

Jordan was a very helpful guide - he knows the rock pretty well and can offer suggestions for holds if you get stuck. Very encouraging and upbeat instructor!

We hit a small snag with a double booking but Jordan fixed the problem quickly by retrieving some additional harnesses.

Highly recommended for adventure-seeking visitors!

“Amazing Rock Climbing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This was exactly what we were looking for when it comes to activities in Costa Rica. We speak english so it was nice to come across a company run by Americans so that we don't have to overcome the language barrier, especially when it comes to such an extreme activity. Although they speak spanish as well it was nice not to have to deal with that when getting instruction. We were a little apprehensive about doing activities in a foreign country but right off the bat we could tell we would be safe and this was a good choice. Our instructor was super fun and informative. One of us had a little experience and the other was a total beginner. We had no problem both having a good time and learning a lot at the same time. The location was beautiful I have never seen such an amazing view! Awesome time for couples, families, and friends. All and all I feel like our experience was perfect and well worth the price. We even tipped the instructor because it felt as though we would be jipping him just paying the fee. Thanks RCCR!!!
