Canyoning has become very popular among extreme sports enthusiasts all over the world. This sport has been practiced in Europe for many years and has recently spread to the American continent. Canyoning is practiced specifically in the natural environment of canyons. This activity consists of rappelling and descending cliffs and waterfalls inside the canyon.
Our canyoning site is located in Calle Chirraca, a small, modest, but lush place near our own Turrialba. We begin the canyoning tour with an introduction of our guides and equipment to help familiarize you with the different uses of the equipment. We begin the tour at the first waterfall where a guide will give safety instructions.
The guide will explain the route and equipment making sure you are informed of the necessary mechanisms as well as the procedures for canyoneering, ensuring you a safe and fun experience. After this, you will begin your 3-4 hour adventure: rappelling down four waterfalls, zip-lining down four canopy cables and walking across a 132-foot suspension bridge, all of which will provide you with an unforgettable adrenaline rush!
