We booked three adventures through PACR: whitewater rafting, a zip line/rappel combo and volcano hiking. All three were fantastic. Jon provided excellent advice, great service and was always quick to respond. Thanks for the memories!

Questions & Answers

Hi, Your reviews are wonderful. So happy to find you. My family of (6) will be visiting in late November. My husband and I along with our four kids ages 20, 19, 16, and 14. We will be staying at Tabacon. We are interested in your zip lining excursions. I have a few questions. It says it includes a 3 hour unguided hike to La Fortuna Waterfall and I wondered about the three hours. Why is it 3 hours? I read reviews of the falls that only mention the stairs up and down but not the three hour hike so I was confused. Also what would be the best way to get from our hotel to your meeting point? Finally, would you recommend the 7 or 12 track zip line tour for our group? We would like go to La Fortuna Falls the same day as the zip lining and were worried we wouldn't be able to fit it all in on one day. Any advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Elizabeth
