Canyoning — Waterfall Rappel

waterfall rappelYour tour begins with a 30-minute 4x4 drive into the tropical rain forest outside the town of La Fortuna, in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano. We trek through the forest on magical trails that lead to some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, a place very few people get to experience. Along the way we will have the chance to discover the secrets that lie hidden deep within the canyon.

From the first waterfall we will rappel down from the top into the beautiful and pristine canyon below. The adventure includes several rappels, three of which are along waterfalls, and one dry rock face. Then it is just a short trek out of the canyon where we jump into the vehicles and head back to the base camp.
