The Lost Canyon is considered hands-down the best spot for canyoneering in all of Costa Rica! The Lost Canyon is one of the most-popular attractions near the Arenal Volcano, an area with a jagged and mountainous landscape. Costa Rica is the perfect location for canyoning. The Lost Canyon Adventures Canyoning is a multi-sport activity where you rappel down 200-ft tropical waterfalls, jump into crystalline pools, do guided zipline descents, down climb rock walls and boulders and hike along a gorgeous jungle canyon deep in the rainforests of Costa Rica.

The tour guides were awesome. They made the excursion more interesting with their personalities. The entire activity kept me excited and entertained the entire time. Anyone that has a thing for adrenaline and enjoys adventure I highly recommend this excursion! They also do a great job capturing pictures and videos and offer it at a great price.

The tour guides were very friendly. It was my first time canyoning so they were very helpful and attentive to my lack of experience. The hike and scenery was amazing. I went while it was cold, but the water was surprisingly warm. Rappelling down the waterfalls and jumping into deep pools was an awesome experience.The food and drinks were pretty... More

The guys we're really friendly, gave a good safety brief before beginning the canyon trip. The canyoning trip took about an hour and half... More

The cost was very affordable and 9/10 of our tours, transports, and hotels were spot on (great). In 7 days of travel we only had 2 hiccups in the trip (which were not related to Desafio but rather the... More

I decided to do a week organised trip of the highlights of Costa Rica and through Get your Guide it was managed by Desafio. Unfortunately I was very sick so missed a few days but I had some fantastic days out organised by them especially to Monteverde rain Forest and Samara kayak and snorkelling trip. The guides were excellent. However... More

We did the white water rafting with Jonathan, Owen and Charles as our tour guides. The trip was fabulous and they made the adventure fun, exciting and safe! We highly recommend them! The next part of our trip was zip lining and that too was amazing!
