Pure Trek Canyoning

La Fortuna de San Carlos
#7 of 133 Outdoor Activities in La Fortuna de San Carlos
It was A LOT of fun! Super, super safe because you have two people belaying for you in addition to your own so if you lose your grip, don’t worry you won’t die.
Again, this thrilling and partial free-fall is very controlled by the guides as they bring you to a gentle deceleration, followed by a splash into a natural pool!
