The waterfall rappelling tour was probably one of the most fun things we did during our whole trip to Costa Rica. I convinced my super reluctant husband to try this activity so we would not have to leave him behind. He spent the entire month after we booked it calling it the "suicide excursion". He is afraid of heights, does not enjoy roller coasters or thrill rides and is not an adventure seeker. He didn't even walk down the paths when we visited the Grand Canyon because it made him uncomfortable. However, we successfully convinced him to try this activity, and he ended up loving it. The team of guides was amazing and go above and beyond to ensure everyone is safe, all equipment is working properly and properly secured onto you and that nobody is put into a situation of panic. Safety is absolutely their number 1 priority with both the rappelling activity and COVID. It was a super fun activity, done in gorgeous surroundings, led by highly trained guides who put safety front and center every step of the way. It is a truly unforgettable experience, and I would recommend it and the Pure Trek company to everyone without hesitation.

The tour was phenomenal, and would highly recommend it to anyone. The guys were very patient for anyone a bit scared, and very friendly. You can take your own waterproof camera but they have guys taking pictures of you as you go through each section. The downside was how they charge for this. The larger the group the more they charge, and if you booked this as part of a combo (rafting afterwards) you couldn't check out the photos before purchase. ($25 for one person, $35 for a couple and up) In our opinion, it felt greedy for some digital point and click.
We would still recommend the tour though, it was such an experience!

I admit I was terrified to rappel down a 180 foot waterfall, but I did it and had an amazing experience! The staff make you feel so safe and comfortable. Especially Jonathan who kept a watch over me the entire time. Once you realize that you’re not going to die after the initial launch off the cliff, it is so much fun! There are a total of 5 waterfalls that you rappel down beginning with the tallest at 180 feet. Next is the “Monkey Drop.” There is no way around the Monkey Drop. You have to do it! It is an 85 foot waterfall with a large deep pool at the base. They zip line you out to the middle, get you to 40 feet above the pool and drop you! Just before you plunge into the pool, they yell at you to close your mouth and hold your breath. Again, I was terrified, but it was so much fun!! The rest of the trip is more relaxing as you walk along narrow paths enjoying the beautiful jungle. I highly recommend closed toe water shoes with good traction! The rocks are slippery and there are several steep climbs as well as a ladder up the side of the cliff after the first waterfall. I can’t wait to do this trip again!

My husband and I did this tour yesterday. I was disappointed in the rappelling experience because there was no speed. I was constantly being slowed down on the rappels. Only towards the end did I realize the guides were controlling my speed. My husband didn’t have the same experience and getting to go fast, he enjoyed it.

While all the guides were “wearing” a mask, most of them were not covering their nose and mouth, often just on their chin. In the enclosed bus, head guide Diego pulled his mask down completely every time he talked to the group. It defeats the purpose of wearing a mask if you pull it down to talk. The guides unsafe masking in the bus took detracted from the fun as I was concerned about COVID safety.

Thank you for this review which I would like to comment on in detail. Please kindly note that our PureTrek Canyoning tour has been adapted from the sport of canyoning or Canyoneering. It is a fun-filled adventure tour, but cannot be compared to the actual sport. During the experience you are in control of your descent and we also use a second upper safety line where we do assist with stopping you from falling if you let go. We work with many different guests different ages and abilities so we must be as safe as we can at all times. Safety is and must be our top priority. We understand that for the very advanced canyoneering experts our tour does not compare to the sport, but we are glad to read that your husband had a very enjoyable time. We appreciate your comment on the mask wearing. We have very strict protocols with mask wearing, as well as all our other COVID protocols. Our guides wear masks in all common areas, in the canyon, in the vehicles and while guiding. We take this extremely seriously and have immediately had meetings with all departments of the company and all the leaders to make sure things like this never happen. Thank you for your comments which we have reviewed with our entire staff to integrate the points of improvement you suggest. We would like to offer you a courtesy trip next time you are in Costa Rica to relive the experience with us and, of course, adjusted to your experience level.

The first drop is 160 feet and then you're cruising the rest of the time! The beginning is by far the best and the monkey drop is super fun! I had a great time and was definitely wanting more drops by the end. I think it would be perfect if you could redo the 160 foot drop again. I wasn't totally satisfied with how quick it goes but that's because it was super fun! The guides were perfect and kept us incredibly safe. The pictures are worth it but they send you a Dropbox with everyone's pictures which is kind of awkward and you have to take time sifting through to find your pictures; for $25 I'd prefer to only receive my own.

We decided to do this tour at the last minute and it was well worth it. The operation was top notch - I never felt unsafe and there were always enough personnel who helped us throughout every step. One woman in front of me was extremely nervous and one of our guides was empathetic and calmly talked her through her fear. There are 4 waterfalls that you rappel and one mini zip line that then drops you about 50ft into a small pool of water (this was actually the scariest for me). Before you head out, they give you a simple but good meal (chicken or vegetarian) and when you return, there is coffee and small cookies. We paid extra to get pictures (we didn't bring a waterproof camera) which were well worth it to document the experience! Overall, a very well run operation and I'd recommend if you're looking to do rappelling or canyoning!

Only negative I have is I didn't want to fall 50ft into the pool and I was told I had no other option. I think there should be some flex if people don't want to do part of the course.

OMG!!! This was such a great tour!! It was one of my favorite things I've ever done while traveling. I can't say enough about the tour, how much fun it was, how VERY well organized it was and how WONDERFUL the guys were running everything. They were so kind, professional, funny and so encouraging and patient when they had someone a little nervous (ME!). That tour ran like a well oiled, safe machine while giving such a great experience to the people attending. I would do the tour again in a minute and recommend to anyone... even those with kids since there was a 5 year old on our tour and they were fantastic with him! They were also very COVID safe requiring everyone wear their masks. I'm also so thankful for the wonderful photos they supplied afterwards!

I went to yesterday's rappelling and there were two things. Firstly, I didn't feel safe. In the beginning I told the coach Jonathan it's my first time doing rappelling and he said ok. And when my turn I didn't slide at first cause I didn't know the gloves provide high friction and I didn't release my hands enough. (Which I realized soon later on) He then asked me to step back and changed the way of the knot and I suddenly felt very heavy and almost couldn't hold my weight. I told him 3 or 4 times but he insisted me to go. So I was like half falling and half turning and stucked on a middle rock for a while, and then leaned to the right and soaked in water. I couldn't stop the fall all the way, let along keep my balance or position. I'm not afraid of height and I stopped for less than 1 minute. He could just tell me to release more of my hands rather than force me to slide like that. So I lost my chance to experience this 100 meters waterfall which was the highlight of the day.
Secondly, the website said it's a 7 hours tour but we finished all the gates within 1 hour. (8:20 started the first one and 9:10 finished last one) Another 1.5 hours for transportation and lunch so totally less than 3 hours. Other people in our group got same info and they were same confused. Lunch tasted good but rather small portion and was offered at 10:30am.

What a rush! The weather was perfect and the guides clearly had fun as we rappelled down waterfalls. It tested my physical endurance as we hiked up rugged trails to the next waterfall, then rappelled down, getting soaking wet in the process. It was such a great experience; and the guides made it feel completely safe!

We had a blast! They picked us up from our hotel and then brought us up for lunch. They have both lockers and towels there so you don’t need to bring anything with you. From there we ended up on a 4 x 4 vehicle heading up to the actual repelling. He went over all the safety instructions and we were off. I felt very safe with everyone despite my fear of heights. We had a really great time and would recommend doing this to anyone who wants to try to push themselves out of their comfort zone, but still have many safety checks in place.

They also take pictures as an extra service. I also brought my camera in a waterproof case and took videos along the way.
