Costa Rica Rappelling

Rappelling tours are a fun, safe and exciting way to experience some of Costa Rica’s most magnificent landscapes. The sport, also known as canyoning, involves a controlled descent down a rock face using a secured rope. Oftentimes this descent is within boundaries of a waterfall, making it a memorable – and yes, moist – activity that even the most advanced thrill-seekers will enjoy. Rappelling tours are often held in conjunction with other adventure activities such as zip lining, white-water rafting, horseback riding, and more. Professionally trained Canyoneers manage the tours, so no experience is necessary.
