Our family of 4 did the Cove Creek Canyon trip with Joe. It was perfect- beautiful, exciting, full of learning and extremely safe. We loved the adventure of rappelling down a waterfall and Joe was knowledgeable, clear, fun, calm and encouraging. His experience, communication, attention and friendly professionalism gave us confidence and made the trip extraordinary.

My family of four, including two teenagers, did the combo rapelling trip with Daniel. We had a full day of adventure and challenge. It was extremely enjoyable and rewarding. Three people in my family have never done any type of rapelling or mountain climbing, but with the training that Daniel provided and the constant guidance, everyone felt safe and improved their skills and confidence as the day wore on. Daniel was such an excellent guide! His knowledge of his sport and of the area we were hiking in made the trip even more enjoyable. We learned so much about the plants, rocks and the people/history of the area. Daniel never seemed tired even though we had a really long day. Our day started around 9:30 and we wrapped up by 6pm. We took our time and didn’t feel rushed at all. Right up until the end Daniel was still pointing out cool plants and telling us about their medicinal properties. This was something that my family really enjoyed. We felt very safe on both rapels and enjoyed having such a competent and friendly guide to spend the day with. I highly recommend this company if you’re looking for outdoor adventure! Worth the money!

My family had a fantastic time with Joe and Danny rappelling down a waterfall! Both guys are knowledgeable, friendly, fun, and safety-conscious! It was a blast and we would highly recommend this company.

Such an amazing experience. We went repelling with Daniel and Joe and they made the trip a fun and exciting experience. We had a relatively large group with a wide rage of experience levels. They laughed with us and taught us about the environment and different plants on the hike up as well. They made sure to teach us proper technique and answered all our questions about the different kinds of equipment. I would highly recommend them for a wonderful outdoor experience.

My husband and I loved our entire day with Daniel at Pura Vida! We started with the Gauntlet hike and rappel, ate the filling lunch they provided for an additional cost, and then did the Cove Creek waterfall rappel and canyoneering. It was a full day of fun, challenging activity, and we're not spring chickens (57 and 64 yrs old), though we have done a good deal of hiking and some rappelling! Our guide, Daniel, was so patient and encouraging and professional. Joe, the owner of the company, joined us on the Gauntlet rappel because we were with another group on this part of the trip. He was great as well! We would love to go back as a family with our adult kids. Here's what I appreciated: 1. Very exciting and challenging adventure! 2. Knowledgeable, professional guides. (American Canyoneering Association certified company--this is a mark of high quality in this field.) 3. Guides were very aware of our skill level and made sure we were comfortable with all the tasks. 4. Encouraging guides! (Lots of verbal coaching and encouragement during the rappel.) 5. Obvious commitment to safety! 6. Only company we would use in this area.
