Jungle Waterfall Rappelling In Costa RicaImagine for a moment you are in a thick jungle in the southern zone of Costa Rica. The sounds of the jungle never stops and at times are so loud that you can almost not hear yourself think. Your adventure begins in such a place. After hiking a short distance into the Costa Rican jungle you come to the first of six waterfalls. This first one is more of a practice one for those who have never rappelled before in their life. It’s about 4 meters tall and is not too intimidating. It’s a good one to get your feet wet if you’ll pardon the pun. After this you’ll hike a little further down the canyon to the second waterfall in our tour. This second waterfall is a little more challenging than the first. On this waterfall you’ll get more than your feet wet as you work your way down the wall. Each waterfall gets bigger as you make your way down the canyon. Between the second and third waterfall you will work your way further down the mountain experiencing some of the finest canyoning in Costa Rica. You’ll see giant old growth trees, some having an 8 foot diameter and a circumference of over 25 feet! On the trail you’ll probably see poison dart frogs, wild turkeys and it’s not uncommon to run into some other unusual jungle wildlife like Pizote’s and Tolomuco’s.
Just wanted to let you guys know how much Ben, Taylor and I enjoyed the waterfall rappelling tour. We’ve traveled to various locations and always seek out the adventure tours and your tour surpassed anything we have ever done…by far! It wasn’t just the waterfall rappelling which was incredibly exhilarating, it was also the trek through the muddy rainforest, wading through the river, the Tarzan swing and the ziplines! Your tour was a bargain for all the adventure we experienced. My only regret is that I didn’t have a waterproof camera to capture the events of the day!
Thanks so much for making your tour the highlight of our vacation. We hope to see you again next year!
