This Pure Trek Canyoning tour was a great opportunity to combine rappelling with getting wet! Moving together down that first waterfall (about 55m high) was a lot of fun – especially when they pulled us both into the centre of the water stream! And we followed that we a bit a climbing, a bit of hiking and several more rappels.... More

We booked this tour through Anywhere.com and could not be happier. From the beautiful 'home base', delicious local food served for lunch and friendly/knowledgeable guides, this was a experience! Our guide was Mairon, who was welcoming and informative. He along with all the other guides, brought great energy & enthusiasm to the day. I have repelled, but never down waterfalls!... More

Amazing experience, start to finish. We did the canyoning tour with Club Rio combo. I think it was the perfect combination. The canyoning was CRAZY. I'm scared of heights, but I sucked it up and took the leap and I'm so glad I did. Both kids (age 11 and 14) were doing it, so I HAD to, right? They pick... More

We loved every minute of our canyoning trip. Jonathon, Samuel, Henry and Giovanni were great. They even allowed me to have a mini meltdown at the monkey drop, and didn't drop me fast.

The crew took amazing care from the prompt pickup, utmost safety precautions during the rappelling until the end where our special meal preference was remembered and organized. Very professional. Highly recommend.

We did the canyoning trip at 7 am 3 kids ages 10, 9, and 5. We were very concerned about safety first. The guys at Pure Trek were amazing. They know their craft, they are well trained, and they paid close attention to safety. The canyoning is spectacular and they ran the tour with a lot of energy and fun.... More

The ad says canyoning, which can have several definitions. In this case, it should be titled Rappelling & Dropping, since that's what you do. Lunch of beans and rice, fairly long ride in the back of a truck on benches along very bumpy roads. Equipment appeared new and safe. Instructor/Guide was very safety conscious. 4 rappels near (not thru or... More

We took the 12pm trip to repel down some waterfalls. Nerves aside it was a beautiful way to see the waterfalls and have an active day. Staff was all in great humor and made sure everyone was comfortable and having fun
