While most babies come into this world kicking and screaming, Desafio’s newest baby, Gravity Falls, arrived on the scene in a quieter way. It was born through a process of exploration, measurement, and daring by four of Desafio’s top adventure specialists who, looking to expand the company’s tour family, packed up their equipment and headed into the rainforest to see what they could discover. They came home with the Gravity Falls Waterfall Jumping tour, and this month, they’re celebrating its first birthday.
For those who have yet to try the tour for themselves, I’ll reveal why it’s so special: Gravity Falls, like all of the other tours offered by Desafio, stands out due to its unique emphasis on the experience. It is light-years away from the type of show-and-tell tour that takes you to a waterfall, explains a little bit about the river, let’s you take pictures, and then brings you home. On the Gravity falls tour, you experience every aspect of the waterfall, from the feel of the rocks to the taste of the water to the sound of the surrounding rainforest. You are an active participant in the tour from start to finish: you are controlling the rappel, you are climbing the rocks, you are making the decision to jump, and you are surfacing at the base of a roaring waterfall knowing that you, and only you, pushed your own boundaries and came out victorious.
So this month, join the Desafio family in celebrating the one year anniversary of Gravity Falls and get up close and personal with the Costa Rican rainforest and some of its waterfalls. Take a tour that gives you a little taste of everything: rappelling, rock climbing, swimming, hiking, cliff jumping, Tarzan swinging. After all, it is your vacation; you should be able to experience every minute of it!
