Climb, hike, and splash through the Costa Rican rain forest on this adrenaline-pumping adventure that takes you into the depths of the Lost Canyon, a natural playground near Arenal Volcano. Rappel down cliffs and waterfalls reaching up to 200 feet (60 meters), drop into jungle pools, and scramble over boulders while an expert guide ensures your safety. After emerging from the canyon, recap your feats over a typical Costa Rican lunch.
  • Complete three cliff rappels and a free drop into water
  • Swim in waterfall-fed pools and hike through the jungle
  • Great option for adventurous travelers ready to go beyond ziplines
  • Includes lunch and hotel pickup from La Fortuna

This was such a fun activity. This tour had a bit of everything. Rappelling was easy and well explained. The scenery and hiking to each point was beautiful. Lots of wildlife in the area. Some rappels switched into a zip line that took you straight into the water. It was amazing.
