This tour starts with a short walk through the rainforest. Birdcalls will surround you, and your guide can point out hard-to-spot birds in the branches. If you’re lucky you’ll get to see a monkey. Monteverde is especially well known for its incredible plant diversity – on your walk to the waterfall you can see delicate orchids and gigantic ferns growing in the tangled foliage.
Once you reach the waterfall your guide will help you into your harness for your first rappel down the watery face of the canyon. The tallest of the six waterfalls is 131 feet (40 m).
Guides have safety training and can help you confidently use the provided equipment. The guides also perform regular safety checks. In order to enjoy this tour you should be in good physical condition.
