Adrenaline Fun!
EmilyG, Apr 2022
This was a really unique experience and we enjoyed ourselves. It was a little scary at first but it ended up being a great adrenaline rush! Unfortunately , we ended up in a huge group of 50+ people and we had to wait for such a long time for the first waterfall. You can tell they overbooked the group because the guides seemed stressed and we were rushed through the whole experience. They really seem to pump people through the day and it was not personalized at all. While the guides were friendly, you were never really sure who was in charge. Overall, I would recommend but some feedback for the company is to not book so many people at once- it took away from the fun!
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hola Emily, we are so happy to read that you overall enjoyed a wonderful time with us in our Pure Trek Canyon & thank you for having made us part of your Costa Rica vacation. We are sorry the group felt a little large on your day. We are still in Costa Rica's high season in which we can reach our max. participant number. We also offer the option of private tours therefore. In that modality the experience is 100% personalized, carried out in your preferred pace and you receive the full attention of your own team of guides. We thank you for this wonderful review and hope to relive the experience with you in the near future. Pura Vida!
Fun activity!

Great Fun but Wish I Had More Time to Enjoy Each Rappel
cherrietopdworld, Apr 2022
Pure Trek rappelling and canyoning was what I was most looking forward to doing in Costa Rica! The guides were knowledge and I had a blast. The guides were very thorough on the safety equipment and rappelling demonstrations. The lunch was very tasty with chicken and rice, salad, and papaya-pineapple juice. My favorite "rappel" was the second rappel but third "activity" where it was through the waterfall and called La LLorona (lady's tears). SO BEAUTIFUL. HOWEVER, I am annoyed that it felt like I was pulled down this fall and did not get adequate time to rappel myself down / soak in the beauty of the waterfall. In rappels 3-4 I felt rushed and part of an industry (of running people through the activity) rather than it being a personal experience/most people's first times enjoying the activity and Costa Rican forest/canyons/waterfalls. While the price is steep, they pick you up from the hotel, feed you a single plate of food, transport us by a 4x4 up the mountain, have restrooms and lockers at reception, provide the safety equipment and demonstrations, take photos (for an additional $35), and then bring us back.
Mario_M, Jul 2022
Awesome experience Had a 8 yr old and was great Very impressed with the safety procedures!!!! Wish had more drops
Response from Host, Jul 2022

A fun morning
Rudy_S, Apr 2022
Very good guides and excellent repels. Would highly recommend it. My husband stayed at the pool which made even more enjoyable
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hola Rudy, thank you for this lovely review. We hope your husband comes along next time! :) We are so happy to read you had a blast in our Pure Trek Canyon & with our team.
Fun, but room for improvement.
Suzanne_B, Jun 2022
My kids loved it. I survived it! I agree with the reviews that said they felt a little like cattle. Some instructors were helpful with instructions. Others were rushing too much to explain things. If you take the 7:30am tour, your lunch is served at 10:30. They should just give you breakfast instead!

Thrilling, fun
Nicole_B, May 2022
First time rappelling and it was a great experience. Fun but nerve wracking. Could feel my legs shaking getting to the first one but it was all fun after beginning. Felt very safe with the guides and they helped you laugh through it. The less you bring the better but they have lockers to lock up anything you bring with you but don't wish to take on you when you'll be getting wet. They allowed us to bring phones if you have a waterproof case but I recommend the go-pro (they provided some helmets with the attachment to do so) as the photos from the phones slowed things down a little. They have a photographer present taking photos for purchase also. You get all the group photos from your time slot when you pay via their website.
Response from Host, May 2022
Nicole, thank you for this splendid review. We are so glad that you had such a thrilling experience and felt safe throughout. We also glad you purchased the photos so you can keep the memories alive from your rainforest canyon adventure for many years to come, or you may return before to keep on exploring with us! Pura Vida!
Must Experience Adventure
Donyel_J, Jul 2022

We enjoyed rappelling out of our comfort zone!
Gordon_B, Apr 2022
This was a fantastic time together with my family of 14. We were challenged to step out of our comfort zone and we became a closer family as a result!
Response from Host, Apr 2022

Fun jungle adventure!
Gregory_P, Mar 2022
Super fun adventure! Guides were knowledgeable and kept us all very safe, informed and comfortable. If you made a mistake on the way down they would swing you to a safer spot before you got into trouble. A nice change from zip lining with a similar exciting rush and totally out in a lush jungle setting full of natural waterfalls. Highly recommended!
