Take a break from the beach for a different kind of fun in Jaco with this action-packed canyoning adventure. Soar through the rain forest on ziplines, rappel down tropical waterfalls, and scramble down a rocky riverbed. No experience is required, as expert guides are on hand to ensure a safe and unforgettable romp through Costa Rica’s natural playground.
  • Half-day canyoning adventure from Jaco
  • Spot native wildlife like monkeys and scarlet macaws on a rain forest hike
  • Soar through the canyon on a series of ziplines
  • Rappel down four tropical waterfalls
  • Slide and climb down a river
  • Stay safe with expert guides and top-of-the-line equipment
  • No experience necessary
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your expert guides at an office in central Jaco. Take a quick 15-minute ride to base camp at a gorgeous 800-acre (324-hectare) property, and then get ready for the adventure with provided Certified Black Diamond gear and a safety briefing. A hike of 20 to 30 minutes takes you into the canyon, with the opportunity to see monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, and other wildlife along the way.

Jump-start the action with a zipline flight that lands on a platform perched above a 300-foot (91-meter) waterfall. Clip on to a rope and, with the help of your guide, rappel down a series of four different waterfalls ranging from 70-90 feet (21-27 meters) in height. Not to worry if you've never rappelled before — it’s a skill that most people can pick up quickly with a bit of expert instruction. Yes, you will get wet!

Next, down-climb the river, scrambling over rocks and boulders to reconnect with the trail. Exit the canyon the fun and fast way on a pair of super ziplines, the longest of which stretches more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). Reward your efforts with a fresh fruit snack and beverage before the return ride to Jaco.

This tour was the perfect mini-adventure. We did the early morning tour, which was the perfect temperature for the hiking involved. I loved how the tour was varied, with a great mix of hiking, zip lining, and of course the repelling. I thought the waterfall repelling would be much more difficult than it turned out to be, thanks to the full explanation from the guides we got it down quickly. Josh was so funny - he was very encouraging throughout the entire trip, his ease up on the platforms made the drops much more manageable. Serious rush of adrenaline, highly recommend it

You would never guess a few minutes from the beach is an amazing jungle and beautiful waterfalls. The guides are wonderful and help you the entire way. It is a fun and exciting adventure. Definitely something you need to do.
