Amazing experience at Pure Trek Canyoning

Pure Trek Canyoning is the leader in Waterfall Rappelling in all over Costa Rica! They believe in doing one thing and being the best at it and for them, that's Canyoning. Come enjoy this fun and unique tour with great guides, spectacular views and beautiful trails throughout the areas! From children to adults and people with experience, Pure Trek are the specialists!

Pure Trek Costa Rica is a recognized member of the ICT (The Institute of Costa Rican Tourism) with excellent ratings for its safety standards as well as the high level of adventure. Pure Treck is listed as one of “The Best Adventures” in the Frommers, Fodor's, and Lonely Planet guides to Costa Rica as well as many others.

Traveler's trip begins with a 30-minute 4x4 drive into the tropical rainforest outside the town of La Fortuna, in the shadow of the magestic Arenal Volcano. Then, trek through the forest on magical trails that lead to some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Costa Rica, a place very few people get to experience. Along the way you will have the chance to discover the secrets that lie hidden deep within the canyon along with all the flora and fauna on site.

From the first waterfall you'll will rappel down from the top into the beautiful and pristine canyon below. Pure Trek has 4 rappels, 3 of which are alongside or right in waterfalls, and one dry rock face. Then a short trek out of the canyon on a magical trail, jump back in the 4x4 vehicles and head back to the base camp for a delicious Costa Rican style lunch (for the 7am tour lunch is served after the tour, for the 12pm tour lunch is served before the tour. Both lunches are served at our beautiful base offices).

Pure Trek Canyoning

Pure Trek Canyoning has been in operation since 2001 moving tourists through a “slot” canyon in La Fortuna. From children to adults and people with experience we have become specialists in this type of tour during these last 6 years after doing the first decent in the canyon. There are different techniques used in this sport that we have adapted for tourists that have no experience. We use 2 techniques – rappelling and hiking on trails in the canyon. Canyoning or Canyoneering is not just a rappel from a bridge or a waterfall it is moving though a canyon using various techniques.

Listed below are the details that we have adapted in our canyon to make the sport of Canyoning into a safe exciting tour for anyone.

  • We always send 3 guides, 2 at the top of each rappel and one at the bottom. When we reach 14 passengers we send 6 guides to divide the group into 2 groups to maintain a very high guide to client ratio. One guide at the top is on upper belay using a friction device (guarding the safety rope for the client rappelling) the other guide at the top is in charge of connecting
    the client to the main rappel line. The guide at the bottom is on lower belay using a friction device. Both guides at the top and bottom on belay are there to stop the client if needed, the client is in control of the rappel but the guide is there to help if needed.


  • The clients rappel from platforms and are always connected to a safety cable. They are not disconnected from the safety line until they are safely connected to the main rappel rope.


  • We use set anchors similar to cable wraps used in Canopy tours, connected to large trees on each side of the canyon that have very deep roots and are far from the edge of both sides of the canyon, this is due to the fact that in Costa Rica there is so much erosion due to the amount of rain. The cables are the anchors are also there to sustain the rope the client is rappelling from. It also maintains the rope at a 90 degree angle that helps the client rappel as well as the life of the rope.


  • We work with a structural engineer with all our cable set anchors and the building of our platforms. We inspect all the anchors everyday before each tour as well as all our trails.


  • 90 percent of our trails are out of the waterway. We have exit trails at the top and bottom or each rappel.

    "Best excursion we did in Arenal. Excellent tour guides who provided plenty of information, fun and thrill. I would recommend this to couples, singles, families, etc. Photographer got great photos too. Food was also awesome! Best tour around.

    Did ziplining afterwards and thought it was boring and not exciting at all comparatively."
