        Unique adventure in the rainforest!
        We had so much fun on this adventure! Guides were experienced and super helpful. Felt completed safe in their hands. Definitely a one-of-a-kind experience repelling waterfalls. Loved the monkey drop and the last jump! But the photos and videos! You won’t regret it!

        Conquer Your Fears! Pura Vida!
        As someone afraid of heights, I was very nervous about this. I realized that my fear could be assuaged through trust. As I watched fearful person after fearful person get gently guided over the edge and safely land, I came to trust the guides, equipment, and operation. If they did it, so can I! By the final rappel, I was jumping, okay maybe hopping, over the edge, ready for more thrills. The guides are very professional and safety oriented. They may not give you a super thorough explanation of what to expect at the beginning, but they take their time with any nervous participant. You are definitely in good hands. I really feel like I conquered new heights on this excursion and would definitely do it again.

        The REAL DEAL! Amazing experience!
        This is one of my favorite experiences worldwide. This is a real canyoning experience that puts you in the heart of some of Costa Rica‘s most beautiful waterfalls. This is not a joke either. You are repelling down up to 170 foot drops on the face of a waterfall, but it is extremely worth it! Just complete jaw dropping beauty and the nicest staff ever. I love these guys! This is our third time and it never disappoints!

        What a fun experience and can't wait to come back and do it again! All the staff was very knowledgeable and kept everyone safe and comfortable during the tour. The first drop and MONKEY DROP was so much fun! See everyone again soon!

        Do not miss this epic tour!!!!
        Completely epic. Best tour we did in Costa Rica. A “do not miss” tour. I went with my husband and two kids (10 and 8). Everyone loved it. All guides were super friendly. If you are an adventure seeker, book it. You won’t be disappointed

        Pure Trek is Pure Fun!
        First-timer here! My friends and I (4) felt brave enough and booked the rappelling excursion. Definitely a great experience! The guides were so helpful and ensured our safety by checking on our harness several times throughout the several waterfalls we rappelled on. They also took pictures and videos which we loved!! I will say, be ready to hike up some stairs lol we were tired from having too much fun and the stairs!! I definitely recommend Pure Trek Canyoning!

        Never too old to rappel a waterfall!
        This was sooooo much fun! I arranged this for my 68th birthday adventure with my husband and it was a blast. The guides were professional, kind, encouraging and the equipment was well maintained. We wanted to do it all over again and again. I would highly recommend this adventure. They also served us a nice lunch at their base camp afterwards. There base camp has changing rooms, towels and showers and a lovely well maintained grounds. Just do it!

        Waterfall Rapelling
        My teenage son loved this activity. I was very nervous and the guides repeated the instructions as often as necessary. They were very attentive to my 8-year-old and helped her have a good time. Alejandro was super friendly, and made the trip even more enjoyable for the family.

        Canyoning and rappelling
        It was a great experience - very professional crew, always made us feel safe. As for the rappelling itself - it was amazing, scary a bit at first but an amazing experience and the monkey drop was fantastic as well.

        A Fun, Safe Adventure Rapelling in Waterfalls
        We went on PureTrek's canyoning rappel tour. The tour was big (about 15-20 people), but it was run very efficiently. Safety is clearly the utmost priority and the installations appeared strong and well-maintained. The views and experience rapelling down the waterfalls were spectacular. Please be aware you will get wet so we were happy we wore a bathing suit under our clothes. There are lockers where you can leave your extra clothes and a shower where you can rinse off and change before lunch. Bring a towel. Vegetarian option included grilled veggies as the main portion (plus rice, beans, plantain) and they were very tasty. We would highly recommend this tour for a fun adventure in La Fortuna.

        Fun Day for a Chicken
        We were promptly picked up at our hotel by our driver and our guide, Gustavo, and transferred to the trail head for the adventure. Our group was only eight people. I had never did this before and was the last one in my group to go on the first drop of about 175 feet. My husband had went down right before me. After looking down, I chickened out and did not want to go. Gustavo was great and said I could wait for awhile and try later. Another group came with Jorge. Jorge really tried to work with me to get me over my fears. He spent over a half hour with me. Finally he agreed to take me back to the trail start. We hiked to the fourth drop and met up with my husbands group. The fourth drop was only 40 feet and I did it and enjoyed it. Then Jorge took me to the last drop which was about 75 feet and I did it without any problem and also enjoyed it. I could never had did this without Jorge helping me overcome my fear of heights. For me I just needed to start on the smaller drops first. Jorge and Gustavo were great. The whole team was all about safety. We wore Keen water shoes.

        Canyoning was my favorite excursion in Costa Rica!
        We went on several excursions in Costa Rica, but Canyoning was my favorite. The guides were very helpful and I felt very safe. We rappelled down several waterfalls. The views were fantastic. The monkey drop was my favorite. Lots of laughs and memories to share with my family. The photo package was very affordable. I would highly recommend this.

      Top notch tour company. We did rappelling with them for the second time and it was just amazing as the first time 8 years ago. We have felt very safe with this company and their equipment looked nearly new. The guides working took their job and safety of the clients very serious. Great adrenaline rush and a MUST do if you are in La Fortuna/Arenal.

      Great day! I had never done rappelling before. I felt safe the entire time. (I'm in my late 50s). The guides are really in control the entire time and give you as much or as little "freedom" as you want. The monkey drop was great! There is a bit of hiking between some of the drops so be prepared. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

      After the rappelling we were dropped off at the white water rafting office. I reviewed that separately but also great. We love white water rafting and this did not disappoint.

      It's a long day but you will return to your hotel tired and happy.

      This was our second time Canyoning and first time rafting in Fortuna area. The canyoning was as amazing is we remembered. The jumps are very high and very scary, but obviously extremely safe. Then they dropped us off to get with a different tour operator for the whitewater rafting. It’s almost an hour drive but well worth it. Our family of 4 got our own raft with tour guide. The rapids were really fun and we saw monkeys and toucans. Momo, our guide, let us have a bunch of fun. Recommended.

      This is absolute must when visiting Costa Rica. They fit you with all the gear you need and transport you up a bumpy road in the back of a truck. The guides make you feel both comfortable and give you confidence that they know what they are doing. The first rappel is a little scary if it’s your first time but just take the leap. You do need to climb a rope ladder to the next station but even if you are not in the best of shape it’s doable. Next is the monkey drop, you will get soaked. Dress comfortably, I wore hiking shorts, a rash guard long sleeve swim shirt and tennis shoes.

      The rafting is run by a different company, The Wave, also very experienced. Our raft guide Alonso was the best. He made sure we had a great time while also feeling safe. They stop midway for pineapple/watermelon. I saw people in anything from swimsuits to tshirts to rashguards.

      Both companies take pictures that you can buy at the end. When you go rappelling they do have lockers to store any items. When you go rafting we left our belongings on the bus and changed in the bathrooms after.

      The rappelling was so fun and easy to do! It was beautiful and we felt so safe. My only wishes are that it was longer and less rushed. There were 4 ropes and a monkey drop. It felt so quick that we didn’t have time to savor it. Besides that, it was seriously so great. We did the combo with rafting and the combo of both of those was our favorite activity here in Costa Rica. Do it!

      So many things to rave about here. The rappelling was one of the coolest things I have ever done in my life. You have to do this if you're in the Fortuna area!! The staff here is incredible. I was terrified the whole time and they took good care of me and also were really personable/fun. Whitewater rafting was great too (rappelling was just a super highlight). All around great experience here.

      We opted for the rappelling and rafting combo tour - figured we would be out for the day anyway. The rappelling was so fun, very safe but high adventure!! The rafting tour was actually ehhh another company since we were the only ones from the rappelling tour to continue on. This made for a very long day, but it was worth it.
