  • My husband & adult children wanted to do the Mambo Combo: Canyoning & Rafting while in Costa Rica. Let me say that I had been nervous for months regarding these activities. I am in my early 50's and h...  more »

  • Book this company for two tours. The first tour was the lost canyon tour plus hotsprings with transportation from San Jose area. Very professional, safe, and fun. My only suggestion would be to let the repellers go down a bit further down the waterfalls before having to zipline to the bottom. The last waterfall 200+ feet, but in reality we only got to bounce for 20 feet maybe. The Los Lagos hotsprings was included and we were taken there directly after the canyoning. This made our check in to our airbnb rather late which was unsettling so we ended up leaving the hot springs after an hour or two to make sure we could get in our hotel. The second tour was zip-lining and hanging bridges combo. I know they dont directly operate these tours just provide the transportation, but the ziplining views were awesome (when it stopped raining) and the hanging bridges were cool, although not many animals to be seen. Overall it was a great experience.
  • Had an awesome time repelling, hiking, whitewater rafting and eating. Great experience and great staff.
  • Can't recommend this company enough for your different adventures in Costa Rica. We booked them for 3 different things (canyoneering, zip lining, and white water rafting). They pick you up and drop you off at your hotel/resort, which was so helpful for us since we didn't have a car. The staff is super fun and genuinely seem to love their jobs. The cayoneering is a great experience. The zip lining is done through EgoGlide, which was also wonderful! We did white water rafting on New Year's Eve in the pouring rain, and still had a great time. Our guide "Chello" made it extremely fun despite the weather. Use these guys for your adventure booking, you won't be disappointed!! :) Forgot to mention the lunches in my first review. The provided lunch for us both days - which was INCREDIBLE. This is no bagged/boxed lunch - they have home cooked meals with rice and beans, chicken, salad, etc. It was fantastic and a great addition to our days.
  • Highly recommend these guys. We were in between Desafio and Pure Trek but I'm glad we went with these guys. They were so friendly and fun and taught us cool things about local wildlife along the way. And even though they offer a photo package, they're okay with you bringing GoPros and other cameras and even have helmets with mounts already on them. Lunch was great at the end too.
  • Me father and I used this company so far for canyoneering in the waterfalls and river rafting. I must say that we were extremely impressed. The guides transitioned from english to Spanish constantly in order to make sure everyone felt included in conversation. They were very accommodating in providing towels and delicious food as well as made sure we spotted wild life as we enjoyed our adventure. The staff was very informative and kind and we felt like we were treated extremely well in a group and later on a private rafting excursion. I will recommend this Adventure tour group to all my friends.
