Lost Canyon Adventures Canyoneerin

Today after a enjoyable, 25-minute ride in your Jungle Limo, you arrive to the Lost Canyon Ops Center and be greeted by your guides. You will get suited up with high-quality canyoneering gear such as an Edelrid helmet and Sit Work harness. Have Fun! After your Canyoneering 101 crash course, complete with safety directions a practice session, we head to the initial point of the Lost Canyon. Start off the rappelling-leg of your canyoning trip with the first waterfall referred to as the “Baby” — a small-sized 10-ft waterfall that allows you to practice and ease your way into knowing the ropes.

You will then hike deep into the rocky land of the wet and untamed rainforest, bordered by huge rocks, trees, and graceful streams. You’ll soon reach what we call the “Big Boy” — the second largest waterfall. You’ll start off by rappelling down the rock face and about half way through you’ll hear “LET GO!” – a few moments later you’ll have practiced your first guided, adrenaline pumping free fall!

Canyoneering in the Lost Canyon of Costa Rica is more than just rappelling — it’s a full exercise! Use your arms, legs, and hands to climb throughout waterfalls. You’ll be jumping into pools, sliding down a natural water slide, sitting under cascades, pulling yourself up some rocks and helping yourself down others. This is when you will realize that this really is an experience of a lifetime!

As you make your way through the four rappels, you’ll notice your force and self-assurance keeps growing. You will finish your adventure with a 200ft waterfall drop — rappelling part of the way and then letting go of the wheels to experience another guided free fall drop!

As we hike back up the rainforest canyon, you’ll be called to take your time and enjoy the peacefulness of the Costa Rica rainforest. It normally takes about 10 minutes, but many people take longer, stopping every so often to immerse in this unique experience. At the top, change into your dry clothes and head up to the Canyon Café where there will be a well-deserved homemade lunch waiting for you!
