Canyoning may not be unique to Costa Rica, but canyoning in Costa Rica is unsurpassed. With its luring rainforest trails and numerous waterfalls that are nothing short of spectacular, canyoning in Costa Rica is the adventure in nature of a lifetime.
Canyoning is a combination of hiking and rappelling, the process of descending cliffs or slopes too steep to walk down with a belayed rope and a series of short, controlled, backward jumps. The adventure begins with a drive into the tropical rainforest. This is followed by a hike along some of the most picturesque trails in the country. Along the way, your informative, bilingual naturalist guide will point out amazing flora and fauna while explaining some of the mysteries of the rainforest.
The hike itself is wonderful, but it's nothing compared to the stunning views and extraordinary experience of repelling down the waterfall you will find at the end of the trail. Most tours consist of five rappels, some on dry walls and others through waterfalls -- each more breathtaking than the previous. Drops are up to as much as 150 feet and the photo opportunities are priceless.
Canyoning, an exciting, adrenaline-pumping adventure in the Costa Rican rainforest, is demanding but incredibly rewarding and can be enjoyed by the entire family. We work with the most experienced, reputable Costa Rica canyoning companies, selecting one operation in each region. Whether repelling is old hat for you or it is the first time you have heard of this thrilling adventure, your highly-trained guides will work hard to make sure your Costa Rica canyoning adventure is a safe and memorable one. Guides also accompany children and younger adults, giving them the special attention they need in order to ensure their canyoning experience is a fun, safe, unforgettable adventure.
Tours last approximately four hours, and all equipment and safety training are included. Arenal Volcano in the Northern Lowlands, Manuel Antonio in the Central Pacific, Rincon de la Vieja in Guanacaste, and Monteverde in the Cloud Forest are among some of the most noteworthy destinations for the best canyoning in the country.
