This half day tour will allow you to feel like a real adventurer on a mission to get to the other end of the canyon. You'll experience some of the most incredible and unique views of the rainforest from within the canyon, and maybe even see some wildlife along the way. After an action-packed day, you'll then get to enjoy a traditional Costa Rican lunch, the ultimate finale to a day of excitement.

Cynthia and Team

I arrived in Costa Rica about twenty years ago by way of San Franciso, California. In 2001, I started guiding these tours with the idea of transforming the extreme sport of canyoning/canyoneering (or waterfall rappelling, as we call it), into a tour that could bring families, athletes, climbers, beginners, and people that just want to challenge themselves to a place that no one would normally ever have the chance to see: a canyon in the middle of the rainforest right under the Arenal Volcano!
