Ziplining and Waterfall Rappelling Combo
"This was an excellent combo excursion! The ziplining is operated by Sky Adventures and the canyoning is operated by PureTrek. Both were exquisite. You start with ziplining and on a clear day like we had, the views were incredible. You see the volcano and the lake. The zip line is fast and high! We even saw some spider monkeys at one of the stations. The canyoning was my favorite part. This is high adrenaline and they start you off with the tallest waterfall. The guides are great and keep you safe. I would recommend closed toed water shoes or closed toed sandals with food grip. You do get soaking wet almost immediately. The monkey drop was insane and definitely something different. The waterfalls were beautiful and thrilling! Lunch was provided by PureTrek - Arroz con Pollo, salad and pineapple-papaya juice. The food was great. We stayed at Nayara so we walked right back to our hotel."..."
