What to expect
Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your expert guides at an office in central Jaco. Take a quick 15-minute ride to base camp at a gorgeous 800-acre (324-hectare) property, and then get ready for the adventure with provided Certified Black Diamond gear and a safety briefing. A hike of 20 to 30 minutes takes you into the canyon, with the opportunity to see monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, and other wildlife along the way. Jump-start the action with a zipline flight that lands on a platform perched above a 300-foot (91-meter) waterfall. Clip on to a rope and, with the help of your guide, rappel down a series of four different waterfalls ranging from 70-90 feet (21-27 meters) in height. Not to worry if you've never rappelled before — it’s a skill that most people can pick up quickly with a bit of expert instruction. Yes, you will get wet! Next, down-climb the river, scrambling over rocks and boulders to reconnect with the trail. Exit the canyon the fun and fast way on a pair of super ziplines, the longest of which stretches more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). Reward your efforts with a fresh fruit snack and beverage before the return ride to Jaco.

Exhilarating, thrilling, so much fun
Jul 2021
This experience was INCREDIBLE! My family and I absolutely loved it (of all ages, ranging from 20 to 60 years old). The guides were fantastic- very supportive and encouraging in the best way possible. Also, the way the canyoning was set up was really helpful because there was a nice progression. First, you start with rappelling on a practice cliff without a waterfall, which where you learn the technique. Each section of a waterfall you do after that helps you to get more confident on your technique and learn where you need to focus your skills. By the final extreme waterfall, you are super prepared and it is an exhilarating and fun experience! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Laughing thrilling adventure of a lifetime
An amazing opportunity to stretch just a bit beyond our comfort zone while laughing, exploring, learning, and building memories of a lifetime. From pick up to drop off our guides we’re warm, funny, informative, and helpful. Lamar and Joaquin were a perfect match and worked well together - Funny, provocative and knowledgeable. Lamar took amazing pictures using our iPhone. Once we slowed down later at night, we sat around the table laughing and telling stories based off his talent. He could easily switch careers! Joaquin opened our eyes to the traditions and educational system as the perfect ambassador to his community. Prepare to get wet, a bit muddy, and hike. So glad we wore shorts and t-shirts under the rappelling gear. Using teak leaves we created body art. Who knew wild basil leaves are the perfect accompaniment to a cold beer at the end of our adventure. It was our favorite adventure on the last day of a week long trip.

A must do in Costa Rica! Our guides Arnold and Joaquin made the trip safe and fun. You can tell they really love to share all their knowledge of the creatures in the forest! They constantly pointed out every plant and animal that we passed! The rappelling was extreme but our guides made us feel extremely safe!

A great adventure!
Just got back from an amazing trip lead by Joaquin and Lamar. This was, by far, the best activity I’ve done in Costa Rica. Our guides were professional, fun, and were very knowledgeable. We did the trip that was zip lining, rappelling through the waterfall, and a bit of hiking. I would recommend this to everyone!

Amazing experience in beautiful surroundings. Lomar and Joaquin were supportive but fun guides who clearly love their home and their work. The physical part pushes the comfort boundaries just enough to feel like a great adventure. Thank you so much!

Extreme Canyoning - AWESOME!
Dec 2020
Oustanding waterfall repelling. Our family of 8 tackled this tour with great adventure and fun. Expect to get soaking wet, but that was the fun of it! Total of over 350 ft of repelling down the waterfall, divided into 5 sections. Safety was conscientious and guides were attentive. This was not for the faint of heart or adventure. Unbelievable experience and so fun! I highly recommend the Extreme Canyoning Tour.

Best Trip in Costa Rica
Dec 2020
This was by far the best experience we had in Costa Rica! The guides, Lomar and Joaquin, we’re so funny and knowledgeable guides. On our way to the starting point we got to go on a beautiful 4x4 ride through the jungle and spotted a macaw, parakeet and other wildlife. During the ride, Lomar told us about the plants and vegetation found in Costa Rica. The initial zip lines over the river were beautiful and provided an amazing view of the jungle. Repelling down the waterfall was incredible and the best repelling trip we’ve done! The water is strong and it’s a little tricky in some spots, but is overall spectacular. If we come back to Costa Rica we will definitely go on the tour again and 100% recommend them!

Josea and Vincent were wonderful! Courteous, helpful, and entertaining. Loved it. Would highly recommend to anyone. There were 3 of us, aged 40s to 60s, and made the entire trek with some energy to spare.

Best part of trip to Costa Rica
Canyoning trip was incredible. 3.5 hours with just the two of us. We lucked out and got a private adventure. Mixture of zip line and rappelling down 4 waterfalls with a stop to swim in a natural pool. It was my favorite experience in CR by far! The town of Jaco is very cool as well - wish we would have stayed longer. Stopped there on our way from MA to San Jose. The guides were all very experienced and safety attentive. I have experience rock climbing but my partner does not. I was impressed with their attention to safety and my partner had a blast as well. But don’t be worried, you don’t need to have experience to enjoy this trip. I debated between the Explorer trip or this one and am so glad I selected the rappelling one. The Explorer one looked to be just a hike with stop to swim in natural pools.

Joaquin was our guide and he is incredible. We love him and would highly recommend requesting him. Vince was also great and gave us wonderful history of the area. Joaquin is from a nearby town and has been working with the company for several years. Mike, the owner was very attentive and communicative.

Book with this company - you will have a blast! Fantastic memories! And, wear water shoes to help with grip!
