The guides were all very helpful, safe, fun and clear. they make you feel so comfortable and safe. I'd never done anything like this before and they made sure I wasn't scared, I was just having a great time.
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.

EVERYONE SHOULD DO THIS WHEN THEY'RE IN COSTA RICA! So fun! You start right off the bat repelling down a 150ft cliff and then you do a series of mini cliff jumps (10-15 ft give or take) and you really don't have an option because...More
