The tour starts at the Costa Canyoning Base Camp where you are introduced to your guides and the equipment you’ll be using (safety harness, descending gear and helmet). From Base Camp it’s a 15 min. 4x4 ride through the Magical Bamboo forest and then up the ridgeline to the top of the canyon. There you will receive thorough safety instructions before starting your adventure.
When you reach the first waterfall (which is 7 meters, or 21 feet high) you will be taught the fundamentals and proper techniques of rappelling. Then you are on your way – with 5 more waterfalls to go! The largest of the falls is 27 meters, or 80 feet! The canyon ends at the Uvita River where there are some pristine swimming holes for jumping & sliding or relaxing and reflecting.When you 've had your fill, our Canyon Cruzer will pick you up and take you back to the Costa Canyoning Base Camp where you'll receive our famous "Pura Vida Picnic" (beer included)!
You will be geting completly soaking wet so please bring the appropriate clothes to wear.We recommend boardshorts, rashguard or a tee shirt you dont mind getting wet. Yoga pants seem to work best for the girls. For foot wear we recommend adventure sandals (Chacos, Keens, Tevas...) or old sneakers that you don't mind getting wet. NO FLIP FLOPS! The softer the sole the better the grip on wet rocks. There is a secure place to lock up all your valubales at our base camp during the tour.
