DETAILS OF THIS EXPERIENCE
The Lush Canyon Exploration in Arenal experience will awaken your inner explorer and inspire you to adventure like never before. This 4-hour long Costa Rican canyoning tour allows you to witness all the wonderful sights, sounds, and smells of the area. Your journey begins with a pick up at your hotel in La Fortuna as you embark on a short but beautiful drive through Costa Rica’s narrow streets into the Lost Canyon, located near the iconic Arenal Volcano. You will be surrounded by experience guides throughout your trip. These guides will provide you with a safety briefing as well as help you gear up in preparation for canyoning. Before embarking on your exciting journey, we will test your rappelling skills. This run-through occurs alongside a waterfall as you rappel down a 10-foot (3.5-meter) cliff. Even our pre-adventures are adventurous!
Once you’re all warmed up and everyone is ready to go, you will begin your decent down a massive 150-foot (45-meter) cliff, which the locals refer to as ‘Big Boy.’
Here you will use the rock face to rappel about halfway down where you will then be able to hang before dropping into a natural swimming hole. This refreshing dip will surely give you an adrenaline rush like no other. Arenal Costa Rica is not only green but it also features many hues, including those of wonderful blues. The region allows you to slash around some of nature’s most incredible animals as you play, hang, and make your way down magnificent stone figures.
Hold on tight folks, the adventure continues, and the waterfalls get bigger.
Next you will descend what is known as the Grand Dad of the Lost Canyon! This 200-foot (60-meter) cliff that features a waterfall is stunning and rappelling down it is thrilling. You will get to free-fall down this lost canyon! Your guided free-fall will make your body weightless and your heart race. Afterwards, you will get to swim in yet another beautiful lagoon as the rest of the group makes their way down.
Once you’ve conquered parts of Arenal by air, it will be your turn to conquer it by land and water. This is when your guide leads you through the canyon’s incredible lush and rocky surroundings. You will climb over boulders, splash down a natural waterslide, and learn all about the plants endemic to the area.
We suggest you take some time out to check out all the birds, insect, and other animals in the area… Arenal Costa Rica is known for its impressive diversity.
Before heading back to La Fortuna, we will hike through the breathtaking rainforest and then we will refuel with an authentic Costa Rican lunch!
