Are you ready for adventure? If so, look no further!  Today you will go on the Ultimate Waterfall Adventure Rappel with Pure Trek. This is an awesome canyoning tour near Arenal Volcano and one of the best of its kind in Costa Rica.

After being picked up from your hotel you will be brought to the base where you will switch into a 4x4 to make the climb up the mountain. The drive takes about 30 minutes and passes through beautiful countryside and a small rural village. Along the way you will have time to get to know your fellow adventurers. When you arrive at the ranch house your guides will suit you up with helmet, harness and the latest safety gear. This will be followed by a brief safety and instructional lesson.

After a short hike you will arrive at the waterfall to make your first descent. Your guide will fasten you and then you will be on your way. The first one is always the best and sure to get your blood flowing! No need to fear, your guide will have a second line for safety. Another guide will be waiting at the bottom to release you and then you will scramble through the canyon on to the next one.

The Pure Trek Canyoning tour offers a total of five rappels. One is down a canyon wall and the other four are down waterfalls. They vary in height from 45 to 165 feet. You're sure to enjoy the Monkey Drop propelling off the top of a waterfall and cannonballing into a refreshing pool below!

Following the canyoning and rappelling you will be led on a hike out of the canyon. If you take the morning tour, lunch will be served after the tour and if you take the afternoon tour it will be served prior to the adventure. Lunch is served at the ranch and which when weather permits has views to the world famous Arenal Volcano.

The tour ends with a 4x4 ride back down the hill and then you will be returned to your hotel. In total the tour usually lasts 3.5 to 4 hours though this is subject to change. This is an awesome tour for anybody seeking a thrilling and memorable experience. Please notify us if you weigh more than 200 pounds as restrictions may apply.

Amazing experience exceeded our expectations!!!
Highly recommend.


Everything was very well organized. The equipment was good quality so we felt safe. The guides were very experienced but also joked with you to put you at ease. Our family of 5 including teens and young adults all loved it. Lots of hiking so be prepared for a workout.


Staff were excellent and it was best activity of the trip


Awesome tour! From the shuttle driver, to a great lunch, all tour staff were very friendly and seemed to love their jobs! The waterfalls were amazing!


Terrific experience! Food was delicious.


What can I say too good to be true..... Out of this world experience and everyone has got to try this. Again all the guides were too good to be true and were all awesome and thank you to all of Costa Rica.


Wow I have never see. A waterfall until this. Very fun. Always felt safe one of my favorite tours. Wished we had time to do this adventure again


This tour was professional, safe and thrilling. It was everything I wanted it to be and more!


Ultimate adventure, Initially I was afraid but as I started first decent for rockwall, I enjoyed the more and more and became pro. I loved this tour.


So good. Wish there were were more rappels. It was over before we knew it. Also the place was amazingly beautiful.


My whole family loved the experience! Excellent, attentive and fun staff. asty lunch was a nice addition.


May have been the best day on the trip - intense and exhilarating


Teenagers favorite excursion


this tour was fantastic for all of us. The guides knew how to handle a large group and were very efficient and fun. The lunch was a nice touch. photos should be viewable online to allow a more informed purchasing decision.


This was the best excursion we have done! The guides were very knowledgeable and were able to keep us moving without too much fear! Was a beautiful part of the world to see it this way! Lunch was great too!


Not my favorite but okay.


The guides were fun. I especially liked the guy that told us all About the birds and the photographer. I felt we could have used a little practice before repelling down the 1st one but once we had a couple under our belt, I wanted to do the first one again!


right on time; it was the best experience; safe fun and exhilarating;


Great outing. Lunch was awesome. Rappelling super exciting


Our favorite of the three adventures, despite the 7 AM pick up! Beautiful hike and exciting adventure... followed by a great lunch right by our hotel which was a bonus for us.




Great experience!


Highly recommend Pure Trek. The only sag was that we paid $25 cash for photos that we should have received via email within 2 hours of our excursion, and we didn't get them. Had to email when we got home. They did eventually send them.


Everything from the transportation to the meal to the rappelling was amazing


Great tour and very professional.


This was so much fun! Everything was timely. The lunch provided was outstanding and way more than we expected. The tour guides were friendly and accommodating. Also, coffee and cookies at the conclusion was a really nice touch.


There were too many people in our group and we were near the back so we had to wait a long time for each reppel.


Tour was exciting. Guides were great-felt safe with them. Lunch afterwards was delicious. We purchased the pictures, and felt this was a bit disorganized. Did not like having to go through all the pictures to simply get the ones of our family. They were also difficult to load onto my phone through the program they used. We purchased the zipline pictures, and only had pictures of our family, and were easy to load.


We had so much fun on this trip! The guides were so much fun! We loved the lunch provided.


Again, the guides were superb. I personally was very scared on first rapel and the guide Jorge was very professional and patient and gently eased me over the edge. It went from the scariest thing ever to the best thing ever. Highly recommended.


SO MUCH FUN! Each guide was enthusiastic and friendly. The trails were amazing and the rappelling experiences were breath-taking! Some of the trails were steep so be prepared for some exercise!


This was the highlight of our trip. Amazing guides and so much fun! So glad we booked this!


The tour guides were great. It was a little less exciting than I thought it would be and it went very fast.


Not much individual attention from guides if you are having some challenges on the rappels


Guides were very efficient




Best activity for me of the trip. Unique experience, great guides (very funny), and met some very nice families while waiting for each rappel. Highly recommend this activity to others!


Guides were so much fun and the adventure was amazing!


this was my one of my top 2 favourite activities


Guides were very knowledgeable and always had our safety in mind.


A lot of standing in line and waiting for other people to rappel. The actual canyoning experience was very short. I wish we could have done more!


The guides were very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, kept us laughing, they exceeded all expectations. Would have rated them high if possible.


What a great experience! We had a blast!!! We felt VERY safe with the tour company.
We would recommend informing people to wear water shoes or the outdoor open shoes


Such a unique activity, a must do! The group was a little large so it seemed to take quite a while between rappels but would definitely do again!


WOW. What an experience! More than met my expectations.


Amazing.. Must do tour


So worth the money...and fun. I will never ever forget such an experience. We older folks showed those newlyweds that we could do it! Everyone was VERY SAFETY conscious.


Each rappel is pretty short and there were a lot of people in the group so it was a lot of standing and waiting and not a lot of rappelling. The guides were fine but not as fun as some of the other tours I've been on.


I only wish there were more cliffs to rappel


Super fun, exiting, and adrenaline pumping. The guys were a riot to be around, very safe, and really made this one of the best excursions we've ever taken. I would highly recommend this to anyone. On a scale from 1 to 10 these guy's get a 15, they really knocked it out of the park.


We wish it would have been longer.


Rappel went well. We appreciated the guides knowledge and attention to individual safety.


Wow an experience of a life time. Loved the guides, they made us feel safe and they made the experience incredible.


Highly recommend! Johanthon went above and beyond. I cannot say enough good things about the guides.


fantastic guides!




This is more adventure than our family is accustomed to--it was a really big deal. SUPER fun, challenging and scary--SO glad we did it! We haven't really stopped talking about it. Guides were top notch--best gear, very thorough.


Very fun!
