Go where very few have had the privilege to roam in the Lost Canyon of Costa Rica! Grab your helmet, strap on your harness, and prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime! Canyoneering is a brand-new sport that’s becoming very popular all over the world, especially in Costa Rica. The rugged, mountainous terrain near the Arenal Volcano is the perfect place for first-timers and experienced canyoning enthusiasts to do a variety of fun activities as you hike deep into the rainforest and rappel massive waterfalls – the largest waterfall is almost 200ft high!
Arenal Waterfall Rappel: Costa Rica's best multi-sport adventure near the Arenal Volcano! You'll be rappelling down huge waterfalls, jumping into pools, zipping your way down on guided rappels, river tracing along the canyon, climbing down the canyon walls and river boulders and hiking up through the rainforest. We pack all kinds of adventure into the best canyoning experience in Costa Rica! Your friendly guide will pick you up at your hotel and give you a quick briefing about what you'll expect from this canyoning experience as you make your way past La Fortuna to the entrance of the mountain-top community of Santa Gertrudis just 10 minutes outside of town. It's a bumpy ride up the mountain, but you'll have the best views of the quaint community and lush gardens of this area from our specially-equipped Jungle Limos! You will then arrive to the Lost Canyon Ops Center and be greeted by the guides. You will get suited up with high-quality canyoneering gear. Your professional guides will give you a full safety talk and then we will head to the starting point of the Lost Canyon. Start off the rappelling-leg of your canyoning journey with the first waterfall referred to as the "Baby" -- a small-sized 10-ft waterfall that allows you to practice and ease your way into learning the ropes -- literally. You will then hike deep into the rocky terrain of the wet and wild rainforest, surrounded by huge rocks, trees, and flowing streams. You’ll soon reach what we fondly call the “Big Boy” -- the second largest waterfall. Imagine this: there you are, on a sturdy platform looking down into the depths of a massive 150-ft tropical waterfall. You’ll start off by rappelling down the rock face and about half way through you’ll hear “LET GO!” – a few moments later you’ll have experienced your first guided, adrenaline pumping free fall! You will finish your adventure with a 200ft waterfall drop -- rappelling part of the way and then letting go of the reins to experience another guided free fall drop! Talk about adrenaline! You'll be wanting even more rappels at the end of this amazing adventure! We then hike back up to the top (10-20 minutes), change into dry clothes, and head up to the Canyon Café where there will be a well-deserved homemade lunch waiting for you!
