From jungle hikes to snorkelling, Manuel Antonio boasts plenty of ways to enjoy the region’s natural beauty. The namesake Manuel Antonio National Park keeps much of the land pristine, ensuring that both wildlife and travellers get to enjoy the scenery. Be as laidback or adventurous as you want — rise and shine for an early birdwatching tour, zip line through a forest canopy, or rappel down the Central Pacific’s largest waterfall…
So What Are Rappelling and Canyoning, Anyway?
Great question! Rappelling is similar to when you descend a wall after rock climbing. When you rappel, special extra thick ropes and other safety equipment allow you to jump from and glide down rock faces, waterfalls, and similar surfaces. So, on this tour, when you’re ‘canyoning or canyoneering’, you’re exploring a canyon via rappelling. In other words, you get to experience wet and rocky vertical surfaces quickly and with added safety as special equipment helps you take the adventurous route from point A to point B.
You’ll Love This Experience Because…
It’s 5 and 1/2-hours of pure adventure. Even your transportation is part safari ride! Between opportunities to spot wildlife, explore the jungle, and be dwarfed by majestic waterfalls, it’s hard to grow bored on this tour — never mind your primary adventure! Speaking of, this is everything you’re going to do on your amazing tour:
- 1 Canyon Rappel (your baby step into this activity)
- 1 Monkey Drop (prepare to free-fall into a deep river pool)
- 1 Monkey Drop (your world is literally about to be turned upside down)
- 3 Waterfall Rappels (this includes the Central Pacific’s largest waterfall)
- Challenge Bridge (test yourself)
- Rappel of a Challenge Bridge (adventure on top of adventure)
- Natural Swimming Pools (go for a dip)
- Suspension Bridge 127 (the longest and highest in Central Pacific)

So much to do, so much to see. On top of this, you’ll also be accompanied by bilingual guides who will explain the region’s history and point things out as you make your way through nature. You’re sure to work up an appetite over nearly 6-hours of adventure, so a delicious Costa Rican lunch is included. In addition to professional, experienced guides and well-checked safety equipment, there are safety exit trails at each station.
