This was definitely a highlight of the trip. We did the water repel which we booked through the hotel. Price was great. Tour guides were friendly and safe! The hike back up to the van was a bit rough. This is an experience of a lifetime and I highly recommend it!

We have gone bungee jumping and zip lining in other locations but this was our first time canyoning. The afternoon trip started with a traditional lunch before heading out to the waterfalls. The guides did a great job ensuring everyone felt safe rappelling down next to the falls no matter their age or experience. Great wet family fun

Wonderful people and the rapelling was fabulous. You rapell 4 times and then they drop you one time.. what a rush! The lunch afterwards was great too!

The rappelling is fantastic, but it's probably a good thing they don't show you how high you are at the first waterfall until you're hooked in. A lot of us would have probably turned around. As exciting as the rappelling is, however, one of the major reasons this tour is so much fun is the guides. Melvin and the other... More

This was the best tour and should not be missed. It is fun and the staff will make sure you stay safe. It is so much fun and you will get to see some really cool stuff. Make sure you do not miss this one when in Cost Rica.

Despite my apprehension, this turned out to be among our favorite activities while in LaFortuna. The Pure Trek Waterfall Rappelling was booked as a combination tour (with Wave Adventures White Water Rafting) through Anywhere Costa Rica. The pick-up was promptly on-time and we ended just in time to be delivered to Wave Adventures. The Pure Trek crew was very helpful... More

Fantastic 4 hour tour with trustful, humorous, nice and competent guides. We did repelling through 4 impressive waterfalls and a monkey drop - and we got WET. A JUST DO activity.

Aside from them purposely guiding you into the waterfall (which they don't tell you they're going to do), extremely fun. Easy to do (you hardly even notice how high you are after the first time) and totally safe. There was a 5 year old who did it in the group behind us. People in our group were also fun.

Our excursion agent lined us up with this company as our first excursion the Arenal area. Well worth the time! The entire group was around 40-50 people so the first rappel had about a 20 minute wait (since we were the last in the group to go down the hill), but after that it went continuously until the end which...

This excursion was one of my favorite all time adventures. They took great care with the beginners and made everyone feel comfortable. Safety was a high priority as we were given very good instructions before hitting the drops. Great interaction with the guides. This was a blast!!! Wanted to start over and do it again!!!
