We were originally going to go with a more popular company, but decided to go with Pure Trek after talking with locals. We are glad we did! This was so much fun and anyone can do it! The staff is knowledgeable and very safe in practice. There are a few bad reviews due to larger groups. Our group had around... More

We had an amazing time (our first time) rapelling down amazing waterfalls and hiking through this beautiful area in La Fortuna region. Jonathon and his team from Pure Trek canyoning tours were extremely professional, engaging and gave very personal care and safety attention to each of us. The experience was exhilarating, spectacular and our favorite adventure in Costa Rica so... More

Rappelling down the waterfalls was an unforgettable experience and an absolute highlight of our trip to Costa Rica! I was quite nervous to do this excursion as it was brand new to me, but all of the staff were so friendly, encouraging, and fun that I quickly was put at ease. Their knowledge and attention to safety was evident throughout.... More

I was worried about the safety of waterfall rappelling. But it turns out, the professional at Pure Trek are top notch. Their safety standards are as strong as what we'd find in the USA, which is not often the case when we travel. Our group ranged in age from 12-50. We all had a fabulous time. It was a wet,... More

Perfect half day excursion rappelling down waterfalls. The staff was extremely friendly, very professional, and above all, very safety conscious. There were about 25 people in our group. Ages 5 to 50. All had a perfect day!

When one is repelling down 165 waterfalls for the first time you want the guides to inspire confidence. These guides did just that. The were fun, young, local guys who were well trained, professional, through in safety, and gave a great experience. The facilities were very nice, the truck ride to falls adventurous, and the rappels themselves were beautiful.

This company is VERY professional, with about 8-10 staff working while we did our adventure. The scenery is unbeatable...thick forests combined with waterfalls make for an unforgettable time. The staff was so fun and happy to be there...and did a great job of making everyone feel safe. Now the adventures themselves were amazing. There were 5 (I think) repels that... More

Well this adventure was a whole lot of fun! I just wish there was a few more rappels and waterfalls to enjoy! Pure Trek is a short transfer from La Fortuna, and they focus on getting you going quickly - no big formality on forms or signatures, and no long safety speech. They tell you what you need to know...

Good professional organization. Kind staff, explaining very clearly what to do or not to do. No experience needed. They provide all the gear needed. Comes with good local lunch afterwards. Very recommendable!

Great experience not to be missed! It took a couple days to convince my husband to book this excursion but we both consider it the most fun outing we have done in our 6 days in Costa Rica . Guides were extremely knowledgeable, felt completely safe the entire trip. I was the first to rappel down the first (and highest!!)... More
