Canyoneering, or canyoning, is quickly becoming one of the most popular adventure/adrenaline sports in Costa Rica. Canyoning combines rappelling, down-climbing, scrambling, and wading/swimming into one extremely exhilarating experience. With its jagged landscape, raging rivers, deep canyons, and breathtaking waterfalls, there’s no question about why Costa Rica is such a hot spot for this rapidly growing sport. Being one of the major adventure hubs in Costa Rica, La Fortuna is a great place to try canyoneering for the first time. Although there are many outfits in La Fortuna that offer canyoning tours, Pure Trek Canyoning and Desafio Adventures are without a doubt fan favorites.
