About Proyecto Aventura
Canyoning, also know as Canyoneering, Abseiling, or Waterfall Rappelling, is the most exciting new adventure sport to hit the US, Europe, Japan, South Africa and now Osa Peninsula! Proyecto Aventura - Costa Rica Canyoning tour offers travellers the opportunity to explore some of Costa Rica’s most fantastic waterfalls. With canyoneering certified and bilingual guides on hand, you will rappel down several gushing falls. An experience that you will never forget! Costa Rica Canyoning offers a great way to explore the hidden depths of this magical area of Costa Rica, while at the same time, enjoying the fun and adventure of this great water-sport. Whether we are jumping over cascades into crystal clear pools, wading, swimming, climbing or rappelling through waterfalls, the excitement never ends. You'll put on a helmet and harness, then brace yourself for non-stop action. Imagine yourself surrounded by lush rain forest inside a spectacular canyon, full of tropical waterfalls and thousands of years of architecture carved out by nature, with surprises each step of the way. Our awesome canyons are located just a short distance from the town of Golfito. Prepare to get wet and experience the thrill of a lifetime. The tour begins with a 10 minute ride to La Purruja Village. Then, we will hike for one kilometre to the top of the hill, and to the waterfalls. Once here, your guides will fit you with canyoning equipment and explain the proper way to descend the falls. When you’re comfortable with the procedure, you’ll begin rappelling down the first waterfall, divided into four sections (35 meters, 16 meters, 12 meters and 10 meters), at the base, the creek leads into a pristine canyon. From here on, there are six smaller waterfalls to rappel down, a few swimming-holes and a couple short jumps. Once finished, your guides will help you back to the vehicles and you’ll head back to Golfito. This tour can be enjoyed by anyone in moderate/good physical condition. It is child friendly and NO experience is needed.

Our kids in their 20's said this is the coolest thing they have ever done! We took the launcha (ferry) from Puerto Jimenez to Golfito and Cindy and Fernando were there to meet us. While they guided the kids on their awesome repelling adventure, we hiked along with Javier. All were punctual,professional, knowledgeable guides. Safety was a priority, but it was a lot of fun too. We highly recommend Javier and his wonderful crew. Don't miss this! P

Totally worth it. We had a blast canyoning with Fernando and Leidi. We don't speak spanish and it was no problem at all, awesome instruction and a ton of fun. 3 of us did the intermediate experience which took us rappelling through lots of big waterfalls, climbing down the river and jumping into the natural pools. A great experience, made our day! Thanks!

This was the best adventure I went on during my free time in Costa Rica. Javier was so knowledgeable and fun to have as a guide. I can't wait to figure out how to return to do the advanced canyons next time.

What an amazing canyoneering adventure this turned out to be!!!! The owner was timely, professional and so helpful in helping to make this adventure happen. Our guide, Fernando, was amazing, and took us on a truly once in a lifetime excursion. Complete with beautiful frogs, waterfall jumping and swimming, amazing rappels and so much more! I cannot recommend this company enough. When I go back to Costa Rica I will for sure be connecting with them again. ☺️
