An exciting multi-sport adventure! A short hike to rappelling down the face of the 300' waterfall and zip line out. Your naturalist guide will stop along the way to point interesting flora and fauna.
Take a break from the beach for a different kind of fun in Jaco with this action-packed canyoning adventure. Soar through the rain forest on ziplines, rappel down tropical waterfalls, and scramble down a rocky riverbed. No experience is required, as expert guides are on hand to ensure a safe and unforgettable romp through Costa Rica’s natural playground.
What to Expect
Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your expert guides at an office in central Jaco. Take a quick 15-minute ride to base camp at a gorgeous 800-acre (324-hectare) property, and then get ready for the adventure with provided Certified Black Diamond gear and a safety briefing. A hike of 20 to 30 minutes takes you into the canyon, with the opportunity to see monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, and other wildlife along the way.

Jump-start the action with a zipline flight that lands on a platform perched above a 300-foot (91-meter) waterfall. Clip on to a rope and, with the help of your guide, rappel down a series of four different waterfalls ranging from 70-90 feet (21-27 meters) in height. Not to worry if you've never rappelled before — it’s a skill that most people can pick up quickly with a bit of expert instruction. Yes, you will get wet!

Next, down-climb the river, scrambling over rocks and boulders to reconnect with the trail. Exit the canyon the fun and fast way on a pair of super ziplines, the longest of which stretches more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). Reward your efforts with a fresh fruit snack and beverage before the return ride to Jaco.

Our tour did not have a photographer. We used our cell phones and just wrapped them in a plastic bag.
