This activity will end right where it started.
Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your expert guides at an office in central Jaco. Take a quick 15-minute ride to base camp at a gorgeous 800-acre (324-hectare) property, and then get ready for the adventure with provided Certified Black Diamond gear and a safety briefing. A hike of 20 to 30 minutes takes you into the canyon, with the opportunity to see monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, and other wildlife along the way.

Jump-start the action with a zipline flight that lands on a platform perched above a 300-foot (91-meter) waterfall. Clip on to a rope and, with the help of your guide, rappel down a series of four different waterfalls ranging from 70-90 feet (21-27 meters) in height. Not to worry if you've never rappelled before — it’s a skill that most people can pick up quickly with a bit of expert instruction. Yes, you will get wet!

Next, down-climb the river, scrambling over rocks and boulders to reconnect with the trail. Exit the canyon the fun and fast way on a pair of super ziplines, the longest of which stretches more than 2,000 feet (610 meters). Reward your efforts with a fresh fruit snack and beverage before the return ride to Jaco.

Great time, Christian &...
, Jun 2022
Great time, Christian & Lamar we funny and professional. Safety was taken seriously. My wife & I took our 3 adult daughters ages 18, 21 & 24. The rainforest was fascinating and we saw a toucan and a black & green dart frog. I would recommend this excursion for the adventurous. Would definitely do this one again.
Lamar is the best. Do this trip!
, Apr 2022
This is a must do trip. The tour guide, Lamar, has been doing this for 18 years and knows everything there is about the jungle. He found us toucans, a pack of monkeys, wild turkeys and all types of cool trees. The actual canyoning itself is so fun a ridiculously beautiful.
Unexpected Wild Tour

Is not as easy as it looks lol. Our guide was Lomar. He was fun and energetic, kept us laughing the entire trip. The hike was fun and not too difficult, but going down the waterfall that was hard, exciting, and scary all at the same time.

Our guides were awesome. They made it all fun from beginning to the end. They were funny and analyzed the all situations to keep us safe.
Awesome experience! A must do!!

This tour was the perfect mini-adventure. We did the early morning tour, which was the perfect temperature for the hiking involved. I loved how the tour was varied, with a great mix of hiking, zip lining, and of course the repelling. I thought the waterfall repelling would be much more difficult than it turned out to be, thanks to the full explanation from the guides we got it down quickly. Josh was so funny - he was very encouraging throughout the entire trip, his ease up on the platforms made the drops much more manageable. Serious rush of adrenaline, highly recommend it
You would never guess a few minutes...
