My wife and I had a great experience with Pure Trek. They offer at least two trips a day to the canyon. One in morning before the lunch and one after the lunch. The food they offer is the standard Costa Rican food. The tour starts with a bit of a drive up to the canyon on a real rough road in the back of a modified old pickup truck. At the top we suited up for the canyoning. The first abseil is the longest and its beautiful right next to a waterfall, you may get wet. The group we were with was rather large but there were sufficient guides to accommodate but it was a decent wait at points. Two of the abseils can accommodate two people at a time on two separate rope systems. The second rappel is shorter but into a small pool which was fun, you will get completely wet. The third was very disappointing, very short and dry. The final abseil was the second tallest and through a waterfall again. For the whole trip the guides were fun and helpful while also being safe. I gave the trip a four out of five because I believe the trip was comparatively overpriced. The standard rate for the couple of hour trip is nearly $100. PLUS another $30! if you want to buy the cd with pictures they took of your group.

I just got back from an amazing trip to Costa Rica. I was involved in lots of activities, such as white water rafting, zip lining, mountain biking, etc., but one of the highlights of my trip was waterfall rappelling with these guys. Guys, you're amazing! Did I mention I'm scared of heights? Yes I am! But the trick to overcome this fear is to NOT look down. It was an amazing but safe experience. Pura Vida!!! Loved Costa Rica and their people.

From the moment these guys pick you up at "Soda La Minita" you realize it is going to be an unforgettable experience! Safety orientation i conducted in such a way that you feel confident right away.

The safety measures and local guides' work is excelent, the only down side is when you reach the grounf after the last waterfall and that indicates the trip is over, but you can always go back!!!

We landed and checked into our hotel at 2:30 in the morning. Were picked up at 7:15 am to go to Pure Trek Canyoning and were jumping off a 180 foot waterfall by 8:30. What a great time we had. Welcome to Costa Rica. My wife, myself and 3 kids (20, 16 and 8) all loved it. Safety was paramount and we were always double secured. Got wet. Had fun. Enjoyed immensely. Pura Vida baby!

Definately do this.
