Awaken your inner jungle explorer on this 4-hour Costa Rica canyoning tour. You’ll be picked up at your La Fortuna hotel for the short drive to the Lost Canyon, located near Arenal Volcano. An experienced guide will present a safety briefing and help you gear up with a hard hat and harness. To begin, test out your rappelling skills on a 10-foot (3.5-meter) cliff alongside a waterfall. 

Once you’re warmed up, tackle a 150-foot (45-meter) cliff known locally as ‘Big Boy.’ Use the rock face to rappel halfway down, and then hang on for a thrilling drop into a natural swimming pool. Next up, descend the granddaddy of the Lost Canyon — a 200-foot (60-meter) cliff and waterfall. Cool off after your descent with a swim in the water waiting below.

Your guide will lead you on foot through the lush, rugged terrain of the canyon, where you’ll climb over boulders and splash down a natural waterslide. Learn about native plant species and be prepared to encounter the many birds, insects and animals that inhabit the area. Refuel with an authentic Costa Rican lunch before the return trip to La Fortuna.

We did the 1 pm tour due to timing issues. Normally we would choose the morning which is usually much busier. It turned out it was just my wife and I. Cesar and his team did a great job. Big rappels, excellent equipment and a good meal afterwards all led to an excellent day. Not too physically demanding with a short uphill hike at the end. The water surprises were a fun addition.

very fun activity, repelling from the water fall was exciting if you haven't done it before. walking into and out of the lost canyon was also very interesting, you don't get to see this canyon unless you go on this tour since it's very remote. free fall into the water hole is also very unique for this tour. highly recommended.

Very friendly staff that made you feel comfortable and safe. Great variety of small and very tall waterfalls. Beautiful scenery and very thrilling trip! Traditional Costa Rican meal for lunch that was delicious. They have several photo opportunities along the trip and videos too that you can purchase afterwards for a fair price 25 for a couple. Tour is a combination of repelling, hiking, and some surprises!

Unbelievable adventure. The guides were a blast and ensured our safety. Plus, the meal at the end was a delicious feast. I recommend the afternoon because the meal is a suitable dinner. You will want to get the photos.

This excursion is the perfect half day trip while staying in La Fortuna. I'm scared of heights but their tour guides were so patient with me and made me feel very safe while having fun the entire time. This is a must do, you won't regret it, lots of fun!

This was a super fun outing! Totally loved it! We've been ziplining and rappelling before, so it wasn't scary. It's adventurous, but they can tailor it for many ability levels. Wish the waterfalls had been a bit more dramatic, but overall, I'd do it all again and again! The crew and guides for DeSafio Adventure Co are fantastic and they really MAKE the trip. Lunch at the end is ample and tasty, served on a nice outdoor patio. There are lockers for your things. Don't bring a camera on the outing, unless it's totally waterproof.... Prepare to get completely wet they provide towels. Wear sturdy footwear! The photos they sold as a package at the end are absolutely worth the price! Loved, loved this and would do it again.
