This adrenaline packed waterfall canyoning tour begins with pickup at your La Fortuna hotel (please note: there will be an additional charge for hotels outside the immediate La Fortuna area). The bus may stop at other hotels to pick up participants. Shoes that stay on your feet are a must; you will be rappelling down waterfall canyons so please make sure they're appropriate. Sorry, no flip-flops allowed! Also make sure to pack a backpack with change of clothing and toiletry articles.
You will start your day with a 30 minute trek in a 4x4 to the outskirts of town. Your guides will instruct you on the ins and outs of using equipment to control your speed as you rappel down the rainforest canyons with the assistance of well-trained canyoning guides.

The dramatic Monkey Drop is a feature that will have you howling with laughter!! You will experience the thrill of rainforest canyons and cascading waterfalls in a way you never imagined with the majestic Arenal Volcano as your backdrop.
At the end of the tour, you will take a short hike back up from the canyon where your guides will provide a delicious tropical fruit snack before taking you back to the base camp. There you will enjoy a delicious, typical lunch is served at a traditional country estate designed for guests to truly experience Costa Ricas peaceful country life. You will come to understand the meaning of Costa Ricas favorite saying, Pura Vida!
After you finish lunch, you will ride back to your Fortuna area hotel. You will have plenty to talk about tonight as you recount your thrilling experiences from this day that is sure to be the highlight of your vacation in Costa Rica.
