Full description
The rugged, mountainous terrain near the Arenal Volcano is ideal for canyoneering. Combine rappelling, down-climbing, river tracing and the huge and breathtaking waterfalls hidden in the Lost Canyon. Start off by doing a fun 4x4 off-road adventure on the “Jungle Limos” as you head about 15 minutes into a quiet mountainside community. Your guides will give you a thorough safety talk about important rappelling and down-climbing techniques. You’ll get high-quality technical climbing gear such as a harness, helmet and gloves, and you’ll get to practice your first descent on a small, 150-foot (45 meter) waterfall. There you are, on a sturdy platform looking down into the depths of a massive tropical waterfall. You’ll rappel down for the thrill of a lifetime! Make your way along the river by down-climbing and rappelling a series of 6 waterfalls that get gradually bigger and bigger. You’ll finish with an exhilarating 200-foot (60 meter) guided rappel! The hike back up takes about 10 minutes, but take your time to enjoy the intense rainforest that surrounds you. At the top, you’ll arrive to the Canyon Café where you can change into your dry clothes and then sit down to your best meal in Costa Rica!
