I decided for my 45th birthday. I want it to travel to Costa Rica and since you only turn 45 once why not do it repelling down waterfalls!! I spend my birthday with a Pure Trek Canyoning and I cannot recommend these guys enough. They were very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. They made the whole experience from start to finish amazing. I would 1000% recommend booking with them. And will for sure use them in the future. Thanks guys for an amazing birthday!! Pura Vida

Fun experience
Catherine_F, Apr 2024
Fun family morning doing something we have never done before! Very smooth and organized checkin, transportation, moving through the course and return to lunch. Lunch was good in a nice restaurant setting. Coffee was great! Instruction and demo were very helpful prior to rappel but do wish there was practice or mini rappel before the real drops.

Michelle_F, Apr 2024
The rappelling was really good fun, but wouldn't call this true canyoning. The staff were really great. However the photo price is expensive compared to other companies I used in costa rica for activities.

Sabrina_S, Mar 2024
Such a fun experience! I would do it again even though I was terrified at every one. So glad we did it and also the monkey drop. Can’t say I’ll do that one again though 🤣

Fun but…
Courtney_D, Mar 2024
Very fun but they could work on how they treat their customers. They go over instructions on how to repel so quickly, and there’s no way of practicing before starting on the 150 plus waterfall. They made me do the monkey jump even though the website says it’s optional ( I hate free fall feeling). One of the guides told me to basically get over it and that I might as well do it since I paid for it. Not very comforting. Another guide told me after the 2nd waterfall that “I was a problem” because I was too light and need to “eat more”. They offered no insight on how to go faster just made me feel bad (although I didn’t feel like i was taking longer than others). Also, an older man in my group was bleeding on his arms and legs from being scraped. The guides didn’t seem to care and never offered him a bandaid (not even when we returned to the bus or store). When we returned to the store after for coffee and to change, they were weird about showing us our photos. They told me to just buy the photos before I could see them. I don’t want to purchase photos without seeing them all… disappointing tour.

This was probably my best day in Costa Rica. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, providing excellent instructions. The on-site facilities were top-notch.
Amazing experience! 💙
Errin_M, Feb 2024
Amazing experience! I felt safe the whole time! I would highly recommend and can’t wait to come back and do it again!! ❤️
Waterfall rappelling
Andrea_H, Feb 2024
Fantastic experience! I’m 60 with two titanium knees, but I was able to do all five rappels. I’ve never climbed or rappelled before. One of the highlights of our trip! The guides were wonderful. I felt safe. The guides took excellent care of everyone on the tour.
Amazing experience!!!
Jessica_P, Jan 2024
George was very helpful and fun , all of the guides were friendly, made sure we were safe and made the experience memorable. The changing rooms, bathrooms were all clean and the meal provided after the experience was delicious. Would def go again and recommend to everyone!
Don’t Let Fear Stop You - Unforgettable Life Experience
wendydeagostine, Jan 2024
Wow! Let’s start with, THIS IS A MUST! I’m terrified of heights. My body trembles, I feel paralyzed w fear. So doing this activity was mentally hard for me but I was determined to NOT let fear control me. I read all the amazing reviews from all different types of people, older, younger, fit and not so fit. I’m fit but on the larger size, and again very nervous. The owner heard of my fear and kind came to find me to help put me at ease. So thankful for her taking a moment of her time to help me. The structure, organization, communication and care is at the highest standards. We were so impressed. Rappelling, was outstanding!!! I want as nervous as I thought I would be. Everything felt so safe and all of the guides helped me feel at ease. This was an unforgettable experience. I’m so grateful for my family and for the team’s encouragement. Do it, do it, do it!!!
A great and adventurous tour!
Jessica_M, Jan 2024
Such an adventurous and fun tour! They provided transportation and a delicious meal before heading out to the rappelling. We got to do multiple waterfall rappels and a monkey drop (our personal favorite!). The staff were super helpful and knowledgeable and care about safety. We had such a blast going down the waterfalls and would absolutely do it again if we are in Costa Rica again. This was the highlight of our trip and we did multiple tours!
Great experience
Misty_P, Dec 2023
Such an amazing experience with Pure Trek! They always make it so fun! Thank you again for the best time!
Fun and thrilling experience
Vinay_P, Dec 2023
Fun and thrilling experience. The guides are professional, courteous and friendly. The activity is certainly one to remember. If you are sacred of height, may be not for you. We felt safe. The overall process of pickup from your hotel, to providing lunch and take to and back from the activity was smooth.
Best rappelling in Arenal
sanjana_p, Dec 2023
Had an amazing time (rappelling down 5 water falls!) and the staff was super helpful and attentive. It was a large group but we didn't feel like it and had not more than 4 to 8 people at each waterfall.
Awesome Experience!
Michael_G, Dec 2023
Incredible experience. Very exhilarating and fun adventure! Would 100% recommend and we would all 100% do this again! Pure Trek is awesome!
