“Extreme Adventure...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

It was a great time with Bob and Josh, but be very careful of the slippery rocks. You are walking through creeks of water sometimes up to your waist. We have done canyoning before in Costa Rica, and this is the most extreme of them all due to the wet rocks you have to stand and walk down on. Bob and Josh are characters and very amusing. It is an adventure you won't forget.

“Honeymoon Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

My wife and I wanted to experience Costa Rica in a way that made us try things outside our comfort zone. The day consisted of a meet and greet with the guides and others in the group, boulder scrambling, rappelling 6 waterfalls, swimming in a natural watering hole with a natural water slide, and beer with chips and salsa to end the day. They also give you a CD loaded with pics from throughout the day.
This is the only canyoning experience in CR that has you rappel in the waterfall. My wife and I felt safe the entire time. The views of the waterfalls, river, and wilderness were incredible. The group size was small, so there was plenty of one-on-one instruction. A great time, and a must if you are traveling this part of CR.

“Great trip a must-do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is an awesome trip with good scenery and lots of fun canyoning and rappelling down six waterfalls. Scotty and Bob are very good at what they do and make the trip fun yet also very safe at the same time. Bob also makes some of the best salsa ever and is a NINJA at cutting up pineapple afterwards!

“Awesome experience!”

We had a great time with costa canyoning! We felt safe the whole time, but not limited from having a good time. Friendly leaders and awesome chips and salsa at the end. Nothing but good things to say :)

“Don't miss this adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I LOVE canyoning! I was worried that this adventure would be too scary, but the guides (Scottie and Bob) took great care of us and we had a blast! The experience was so unique...as I descended the face of the waterfall with the water gently spraying my face, I thought Life is Good! I am atheletic but I am not a great swimmer and I felt comfortable and safe -- but challenged. Perfect combination. Thanks Costa Canyoning!
