    Fun Time for the Whole Family!
    Kristen_E, Apr 2024
    Our kids are 14, 11 and 8 years old and they were all able to do this. My husband did not enjoy jumping into the pools (you have to be careful not to hit rocks), but was ok with everything else. I haven’t done anything like this before, so it was a thrill for me. My two older kids have done zip lining and rappelling before things before at summer camp, so not as much of a thrill, but they enjoyed themselves. I bought a wet bag for this, but ended up putting it in a locker. We did use a water proof container for 1 phone so we could take pictures. It was a kind with a strong string that goes your neck and has a clear pouch for your phone. They will take pictures of you that you can pay for at the end. Do not bring jewelry with you. Bring a change of clothes so you aren’t sitting in wet clothes for lunch at the restaurant. Time on the tour, around 1.5 hours, overall time including transportation and lunch at the restaurant near Mistico Hanging bridges, around 4 hours. The lunch was buffet style (it was all laid out in front of us) but we were only allowed to fill our plates once and a man served us. Salad, beans/rice, spaghetti/meat sauce, plantains and some other items.
    Great first activity in Costa Rica
    Allison_P, Apr 2024
    This was an amazing first activity to do when my husband and I arrived in Costa Rica! It had the perfect amount of adventure and relaxation! Also the food was incredible!! It was a long day but hanging out in the hot springs afterwards was a perfect ending to the day. Also we are so happy we had a tour guide because we would not have seen much of the wild life if we had just done the hanging bridges by ourselves.
    Waterfall Rappelling - Amazing adventure!
    Sharon_T, Apr 2024
    We did this experience on our first day of our trip, what a way to start our vacation with a bang! This was so much fun, we got completely soaked with all the pool jumps but it was a really great time. The guides were all very friendly and funny and made it a very memorable experience. Easy for a beginner to do as well.
    Amazing Experience!
    Caroline_B, Apr 2024
    I had a BLAST canyoneering with the folks at La Roca. I was going in as a solo traveler and felt nothing but safe the entire time. Our guides kept us laughing throughout the entire experience, thankfully easing away our groups nerves. Cesar was even able to help calm down a young kid in our group who was initially very nervous. He ended up being able to complete the entire activity with us all rooting him on. Very heartwarming. The adventure was amazing (but oh so wet and cold, definitely would consider wearing a long sleeve), but the guides made it unforgettable. Shouts out Byron, Kendel, Cesar, Elder and all the guys working hard at La Roca. PS definitely get the picture package, when I went it was 10$ cash or 20$ credit card.
    Exciting and safe!
    Tracy_W, Apr 2024
    This was such a fun and refreshing activity! Neither my boyfriend, nor I had prior Canyoning experience, though we’ve been zip lining plenty. We both felt completely safe on this trip and had loads of fun. Our guides were hilarious though definitely put safety first. The trip was well organized. Instructions were very clear and they walked us through step-by-step, eliminating any possibility of stress or anxiety about what was ahead. Cesar, Byron, Byron’s brother, who’s name we are forgetting… And the others all were wonderful. We highly recommend this company!
    Prepared to have fun and get wet

    Fun day in La Fortuna

    We had a great day with La Roca! The guides are friendly and funny. They made everyone feel safe even when pushing our comfort zone a little. They really know what they’re doing. Highly recommend!
    Best Activity for La Fortuna Tourists
    Richard_N, Mar 2024
    I did three different La Fortuna excursions/day-trips. This was by far my favorite one. And for anyone nervous about the physical nature of rappelling, zip lining, and pool jumping (like I was), it was relatively easy and super fun. There was literally a 7 year old, who was able to do all the activities. Plus, you get to meet and chat with other travelers from around the world. Great time! I also recommend getting the addition service of professional photography.
    Great Time in the Canyon
    Rod_H, Mar 2024
    Loved the team of guys who helped us thru the canyon journey. Made the experience very memorable. Really felt as though we were deep in the jungle!
    An Absolute Must
    Anonymous, Mar 2024
    It’s overwhelming to try to plan adventures in advance but trust me when I tell you: this place delivers! We spent spring break in CR (March 2024) and LaRoca Canyoning was our best day. Sofia, 14, and Victoria, 13, are still talking about it. Ceasar, Kendal and Byron get five stars all the way! If you are looking for the best adventure in LaFortuna/Arenal you’ve found it! Our family thanks you cool LaRoca Guys! PURA VIDA! ❤️
    You know you're alive when you do this awesome adventure
    Dianne_E, Mar 2024
    The surrounding forest was unbelievably beautiful. Rappelling next to a waterfall was amazing. The pool jumps were invigorating. A super fun day that makes you feel alive! The staff was friendly and safety-conscious.
    Wow, don’t miss this opportunity
    Chris_H, Mar 2024
    Fantastic team of guides, the better have seen. Very safe with top notch equipment. Great lunch with a view afterwards.
    INCREDIBLE Tour Guides
    Iman_E, Mar 2024
    I went on this tour with 7 friends from college for spring break and we had the best time! Byron, Cesar, and Kendal were all amazing tour guides really funny and made the experience an unforgettable one. It is a pretty long course and we had a lot of adrenaline rushes. The views were really nice and it was a very unique experience rappeling into waterfalls. It takes about 2.5 hours but is definitely worth it. Great way to explore La Fortuna! I would budget more time than Viator suggests because they tend to run pretty late (we ended at 5:30pm) but it was awesome overall! Funny story: my best friend lost her ring when she dropped it from a bridge and it fell in the bushes. We thought there was no way to get it back but Cesar an International Rescue Certified man jumped and searched for the ring and HE FOUND IT!! This honestly shows how great these tour guides were. (WE LOVE U CESAR)

    Excellent crew. Professional and fun. Probably the most fun excursion we had in Costa Rica. Easy excursion suitable even for kids.
    This was an AWESOME way...
    Kristen_R, Mar 2024
    This was an AWESOME way to start our Costa Rican vacation! Cesar, Jesus, and Elder were the best tour guides and ensured our family of 5 had a safe and enjoyable day. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this experience to anyone.
    Must do adrenaline rush!!
    Christina_R, Mar 2024
    This is a must do in Costa Rica!! I have never rappelled before and the guides were amazing to walk us through the process. We felt completely safe. It was a great mixture of rappelling zip lining and jumping off bridges/waterfalls into water pools. You will get wet! It was an amazing experience. I didn’t realize we were eating lunch before the excursion and we ate before we went so I could have done without that part since it also took over an hour. The excursion is somewhat long so starting earlier would have been nice or eating afterwards. All in all I would definitely do it again and the crew is awesome! They also gave the option to get professional photos which was great because we couldn’t bring our phones.
    Highly recommend

    This tour was amazing. The staff was fantastic and safety was top notch! The lunch that was included was also very tasty, much exceeded our expectations all around!
    This tour has everything you could want!
    Jenna_B, Mar 2024
    Highly recommend!! It was a perfect start to our day— such a fun tour. The tour guides kept us laughing the whole way and made us feel very safe. The lunch portion really blew us away with incredible authentic Costa Rican buffet and eating inside with spectacular view of the volcano! Would choose this tour every time we are in the area.
    The staff was amazing and...

    Most extreme tour of our trip
    Lorraine_C, Mar 2024
    Be ready to be completely wet! My new hubby and I loved this tour, it was definitely the most extreme activity we did on our trip. Our other tours were ATVs, horseback riding, river rafting (3s and 4s), mountain biking, and snorkeling. I recommend water shoes with good soles and closed toed. Our group was a little too large which meant a lot of waiting time in between descents, so if you can go on a week day, that would be better. If you have someone who easily gets cold (like me) wear a swim suit with long sleeves or maybe even a wet suit. I was definitely shivering by the end.
