      Great for all levels!
      We did the combo tour to get a taste of everything in one fell swoop, and we are so glad we did! Authentic Rico breakfast, a fun ride up to the mountain ridge, then hiking, ziplining, repelling… we communicated in advance about the greatest and smallest in our party, and they accommodated us wonderfully. Four adults and four kids, the youngest was 3. The customer service was spectacular with booking, the guides were fun, safe, patient, and relaxed. We booked several other tours via this company and all were wonderful!

      A wonderful tour of the rainforest full of discovery and amazing opportunities to take great photographs & enjoy nature
      A completely fabulous tour. First being picked up in a great van with air conditioning, the tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable and very courteous. I missed somewhere that they were going to feed us, that was great because my teen was hungry. The food was delicious. From there a ride on a truck that takes you up into the rain forest. Our guide Lomar was a superstar. Knew everything about every plant and animal and pointed it out to us. When we arrived to the unloading spot, he offered us walking sticks and from there we started our descent towards the waterfall pools. They are breathtaking. Swimming in them is a joy and the guides are fantastic at taking pictures with out phones and keeping them dry and safe. They are so strong and will help you navigate all the rocks and the trail. I discovered thanks to my guide flora and fauna I had never seen before and while swimming in one of the pools, it started raining a little. The rainforest. An amazing day that ended with watermelon and pineapple and complete joy. I would just add to bring a towel for when you are done with the whole thing so you don’t stay wet the whole way back to the hotel. Amazing experience.

      Best adventure on my trip!
      This was a fantastic hike. Easy to moderate difficulty. Guide was very personable and informative. A meal came with the hike. The waterfalls were fantastic. We were able to swim in all of them. They became deeper the higher we went. The finale was a 30 foot jump into a pool at the bottom of a waterfall. Exillerating. I would do it again and recommend it to others.

      Would recommend this to see wildlife and monkeys!
      We did the monkey mangrove boat tour and it was such a cool experience. My goal for my Costa Rica trip was to see monkeys and sloths. And we got to feed multiple monkeys and they climbed all over us. Our guide was great and would recommend doing this to see wildlife!! The views from the boat were amazing as well

      Best excursion ever!!
      This experience was awesome!!! Our tour guides were knowledgeable, kept us safe and most importantly so fun!! We got a delicious home cooked lunch! We got to learn so much about birds and animals during the hike portion of the tour and had a blast in the waterfalls!! The guides were awesome with taking photos and making sure we had the best time. We left a phone behind in the van after our drop off and the tour guides were over the top helpful and drove the phone back to us once it was found! 10 out of 10 recommend this experience, best thing we did in Costa Rica!!

      Best waterfall Tour ever!!
      This was an INCREDIBLE tour. Juaquin helped make our experience one we will never forget! He took so much time showing us things on our hike, very knowledgeable and kind. We had an absolute blast in the pools and waterfalls, it was more than what we expected. We enjoyed a delicious Costa Rican breakfast and coffees before we started the hike. This ended up being by far our favorite tour in CR and highly recommend it to everyone. You will not be disappointed!! Juaquin took so many pictures and awesome videos of us that we will treasure. We will be back to do this tour again.

      Amazing experience !
      This experience was second to none and we had the best time. Christian was our guide and he was such a knowledgeable and friendly person. The breakfast before the hike was amazing and the waterfalls were breathtaking. We loved every minute of our time on this excursion and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Christian!

      Joaquin our tour guide was excellent, from pick up to the end of the tour. Joaquin explained all the flora and fauna in the jungle. He is very knowledgeable and made the tour super fun! We saw amazing waterfalls, jumped into deep pools, and spotted Toucans. The four of us loved this tour!

      A beautiful day
      We had a fabulous time with Joaquin, our guide. He was really friendly, funny and great with the kids. The waterfalls were amazing too. He took nice photos and videos of us. He also gave my nephew a pep talk when he was too scared to jump. Overall it was a fabulous day. We all really enjoyed our time here. Lunch was a nice touch too. I would strongly suggest water shoes, though.

      Memorable experience for entire family!
      We had an incredible experience today with Joaquin and Arnoldo. Those guys absolutely love their jobs and it shows! They made our experience exceptional! Fun, engaging, patient, knowledgeable, and passionate about their country. The ride on the jungle limousine was fun, the waterfalls were fantastic, and watching Joaquin and Arnoldo do backflips into the pools was quite memorable! Can’t recommend this experience enough!

      Heavenly
      Fantastic!!! Tour guides were very attentive, for my wife and I are up in age. I'm 60 and she's younger (she made me add that) Lomar and Cristian so knowledgeable of their country. Highly recommend this 3.5 hours tour.

    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.

    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!

    Wonderful tour began with lunch provided by fruit-farming women. Zipped over the river twice then a series of rappels down the waterfall. Safety Assured by cautious guides even in jumping diving into deep pool below Waterfall. Very knowledgeable about ecosystem: poison frogs, tree frogs, macaws, falcons, snakes, Every tree & plant.Delightful day in the rainforest!

    This is one of the best adventure activities I have ever done in any country. The guides we had this time were Cristian & Wilson who were extremely professional wanting you to have a super fun time but they also take your safety very seriously. My husband and friend had a complete blast too! Highly recommend you do this activity when in or around Jaco

    We took our 14 year old and 12 year old twins on the extreme waterfall rappelling tour and can’t say enough great things. We met our ah-mazing guides (Wilson and Joaquin) in Jaco and rode with them up onto the mountain. We were served a lovely homemade breakfast at a small home in the hills (super charming and delicious!) before we transferred to the 4x4 and drove to the top. We locked our valuables in a lock box at the home where we ate before we left.
    Once at the top, they fitted us with our gear and off we went. First up there were two easy zip lines. I do not like that butterfly sensation that you get on roller coasters etc and I did not get any from the zip lines (or all day)!
    They teach you how to rappel from the landing platform of the last zip line. Our guides were awesome at coaching us on how to control our speed and helping us get past our fear! Seriously, it is all in your head. :)
    Next up, everyone but me (because butterflies) did some “cliff jumping” into a swimming hole and then we started our rappel. After the 4th rappel we were able to peek over the canyon edge and decide if we really wanted to do the final “extreme” 180ft waterfall. Three of us did (including me) and two didn’t. So, three of us went with Wilson and the other two headed back to the 4x4 with Joaquin. As other reviewers have mentioned, the hike out is no joke. It’s a 1/4 miles on the river and then another 1/4 mile or so that is so steep that you clip onto a rope to prevent falling (like via ferrata) and then another 1/3 a mile of steep scrambling/hiking out.
    Don’t chicken out on the last waterfall! It’s just like all the others, you control your speed and can go slow and steady. It’s so pretty and so worth it!

    This was an AWESOME experience! Arnold and Lemar were the BEST guides! They kept everyone safe and having a great time! We'd recommend the cliff jumping and waterfall repelling to anyone visiting Costa Rica. Our guides kept us laughing, and also knew so much about the wildlife there, so we were able to see and learn about things we never would have seen on our own....frogs, birds, trees, etc. The local breakfast was perfect. Would give them 10 stars!

    We lucked out and essentially had a private tour because my husband and I were the only participants. Our guides Cristian and Lomar took great care of us, pointed out several neat animals (poison dart frog, blue butterfly, birds), and kept us laughing the whole time with their humor. Neither of us had rappelled down waterfalls before, so it was an adventure that we'll never forget. "Canyoning" is so fun, and this particular tour was incredible because of the guides and the beautiful nature encountered. Heads up, a huge delicious Tico breakfast is provided at base camp. I can't imagine a better adventure tour.

    I visited Jaco with 3 of my girl friends, and this was the highlight of our trip! Our guides, Lamar and Juaquin were amazing! I had never been ziplining before, and I really thought I'd struggle with being able to leave the platform. I could not be more wrong. Our guides were so friendly and funny, and their nature made me feel safe the entire time! I really cannot recommend this tour enough!

    This was probably the best activity we did on our entire Costa Rica trip! I feel bad for not remembering the two men that were our guides but they were so knowledgeable, so funny and friendly and made us feel safe the entire time. This is a must do activity!

    Highly recommend! We had a blast! The guides are knowledgeable and we felt safe the entire time. They also seemed to be having just as much fun as we were. We ziplined, cliff jumped, and did several waterfall repels. Great day!
