When you arrive at the ranch house in the mountains, the guides will put your gear on and give you a detailed explanation of how to rappel. The guides will let you go as slow or as fast as you want, safely of course. There will be a safety line controlled by a guide at the top of each rappel. This will stop from falling if you let go of your rope. You will also have a guide at the bottom of each rappel, controlling the main rappel line for additional support. Easy trails will be trekked throughout the canyon. The canyon portion of this tour is approximately 2.5-hours.

With your gear on, your guides will lead you on an easy 5-minute hike on a well maintained trail to the first rappel. After you rappel down into this spectacular hidden canyon, you will climb a short 15-foot route to the Monkey Drop zip line. You will zip line across the canyon, then rappel down from the cable to the canyon floor again. From there you hike on short well maintained trails in between each rappel. A total of 5 rappels, 4 of which are waterfalls and 1 canyon wall, as well as a rock climb. After the last rappel you will take a short hike out of the canyon to another ranch house, with bathrooms, where the guides will help you take your gear off. You will jump back into the 4x4 truck, drive back down to the vans and off to the base offices and gardens (about a 30 minute drive in total).

This tour is suitable for all skill levels, ages ranging from 5 years old to 99 years young. No upper body strength is needed, but it is recommended that you are in moderate physical condition and ready to have fun! 

You will be spoiled at the base offices with beautiful changing rooms and bathrooms including all amenities, and spectacular tropical gardens.  Then your guides will serve you an absolutely delicious organic Costa Rica lunch (vegetarian available upon request) with housemade tortillas, dressings, salsas and fresh tropical juice.
