Canyoneering in Costa Rica is a brand-new sport that’s becoming very popular the world over! The rugged, mountainous terrain near the Arenal Volcano is ideal for canyoning in Costa Rica. Our canyoneering jungle course incorporates various activities — You’ll go rappelling, down-climbing, river tracing, jumping into pool and descend huge, breath-taking tropical Costa Rican waterfalls hidden in our Lost Canyon near the Arenal Volcano!
Canyoning in the Lost Canyon in Costa Rica is more than just a waterfall rappel — it’s a very active and physical sport where you use your whole body to make your way down a beautiful river canyon and hike through deep Costa Rica rainforest.
Our Lost Canyon Adventures canyoning in Costa Rica is an experience of a lifetime – go where very few have had the privilege to roam!
Travel the old-fashioned way! You’ve probably heard about Costa Rica’s famous, bumpy backroads – start off by doing a fun 4×4 off-road adventure on our “Jungle Limos” as you head about 15 minutes into a quiet, mountainside community. Our Jungle Limos are powered by renewable BioDiesel fuel!
Prepare to get wet! Imagine yourself in the midst of thick rainforest at the top of a magical canyon full of tropical Costa Rica waterfalls with surprises each step of the way. Your experienced and friendly, bilingual canyoneering adventure guides will give you a thorough safety talk about important rappelling & down-climbing techniques. You’ll use high-quality technical climbing gear such as a harness, helmet and gloves. To begin with, you’ll practice your first descent on a small, 10-ft waterfall near the Arenal Volcano.
Take a deep breath! There you are, on a sturdy platform looking down into the depths of a 150-ft massive tropical waterfall. You’ll do a guided-rappel down the waterfall for the thrill of a lifetime! You then make your way along the river by down-climbing & rappelling a series of four waterfalls that get gradually bigger and… BIGGER!
We save the BEST for last! The biggest & most-exciting waterfall is your last descent… you’ll finish with an amazing, 200ft-guided-rappel as you zip to the bottom of this extraordinary Costa Rican waterfall!!
This last waterfall rappel will leave you wanting more canyoning in Costa Rica!
The hike back up the rainforest canyon takes about 10 minutes, but take your time to enjoy the intense jungle that surrounds you!
At the top, you’ll arrive to our Canyon Café where you can change into your dry clothes and then sit down to your best meal in Costa Rica — an all-you-can eat buffet of fresh, natural foods from our garden!
