Explore the rugged landscape and forested depths of Costa Rica’s Lost Canyon. Rappel down a series of cliffs up to 200 feet (60 meters), and drop into clear tropical pools at the bottom of the canyon. Hike through a thick rain forest teeming with life and scramble over rocks as you uncover hidden secrets of this amazing area. Round-trip hotel transport from La Fortuna and a traditional Costa Rican lunch are included.
What to Expect
Awaken your inner jungle explorer on this 4-hour Costa Rica canyoning tour. You’ll be picked up at your La Fortuna hotel for the short drive to the Lost Canyon, located near Arenal Volcano. An experienced guide will present a safety briefing and help you gear up with a hard hat and harness. To begin, test out your rappelling skills on a 10-foot (3.5-meter) cliff alongside a waterfall. 

Once you’re warmed up, tackle a 150-foot (45-meter) cliff known locally as ‘Big Boy.’ Use the rock face to rappel halfway down, and then hang on for a thrilling drop into a natural swimming pool. Next up, descend the granddaddy of the Lost Canyon — a 200-foot (60-meter) cliff and waterfall. Cool off after your descent with a swim in the water waiting below.

Your guide will lead you on foot through the lush, rugged terrain of the canyon, where you’ll climb over boulders and splash down a natural waterslide. Learn about native plant species and be prepared to encounter the many birds, insects and animals that inhabit the area. Refuel with an authentic Costa Rican lunch before the return trip to La Fortuna.

Great trip canyoneering with Andreas and others. Exhilarating but safe. Four descents Lovely lunch afterwards. Had photos taken which was reasonable to buy. Guides are charming and not pushy for tips in the least.
