Half Day Tour Canyoning Rappelling

Half Day Tour Canyoning Rappelling: There are 4 rappels, 3 of which are along side or right in waterfalls, and one dry rock face. From the first waterfall you will rappel down from the top into the beautiful and pristine canyon below –


NOTE: New Addition: The newest addition to half day tour canyoning rappelling is The Monkey Drop and Rock Climb. After rappelling down the first waterfall 165 feet you climb up the side of the canyon wall 20 feet to a short trail. Then you zip line across the canyon and rappel down the cable 82 feet to the canyon floor. The monkey drop and rock climb is added to the 4 rappels that include 3 waterfalls and a delicious hot lunch. (This is a delightful addition to this adrenalin packed tour and as always is kid and family friendly.)

Canyoning-Rappelling through Waterfalls   
Come experience the Magic of the Rainforest!
Half Day Tour Canyoning Rappelling begins with a short 4×4 drive into the tropical rainforest outside the town of La Fortuna, in the shadow of the Arenal Volcano. After leaving base camp, it is just a short drive to the turn off and then the bumpy ride to the canyon begins (approx 20 min drive).
You will trek through the forest on magical trails that lead to some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, a place few people get to experience. Along the way we will have the chance to discover the secrets that lie hidden deep within the canyon.
Experienced Canyoning-Rappelling Guides will carry equipment to the starting point so you use the restroom one more time before the guides start to gear you up in shaded comfort.
Canyoning & Waterfall Rappelling Costa RicaNo easy, gentle start here.  The first drop is a doozy!!  165 Feet to the bottom of the canyon. After the first rappel you will be ready for anything.  So prepare to get WET.  You will swear this must be some version of Costa Rican Wet T-Shirt contest!
At the end of the tour, you will hike about 15 minutes up the canyon.  What goes down, must come back up… There vehicles wait to take you back to the base camp and a hot lunch and cool refreshing tropical fruit drink.
CD with photos of your Canyoning tour and bonus wildlife shots are available at the end of the tour ($25), and you’ll be sure to want a T-Shirt to wear to remind you of all the fun you had.  After lunch, you will be driven back to your Arenal or Fortuna area Hotel.
