Done a guided rappel down a 150-foot gushing waterfall? Fun, but what’s next, you ask? Are you ready for the next extreme adventure adrenaline fix? How about waterfall jumping?
Waterfall jumping is Costa Rica's version of cliff diving, but next to a waterfall. The newest most extreme adventure tour in Arenal is the new Gravity Falls Waterfall Jumping Canyon by Desafio Adventure Company. This intense canyoning multi-sport adventure involves waterfall jumps, waterfall rappels, river tracing, down climbing and river canyon swims.
“People have been rappelling down waterfalls and going river rafting, and they’re looking for the next big adventure,” said Desafio Adventure Company owner, Christine Krishnan.
Gravity falls involves an 80-foot rappel down the side of a rushing waterfall into a deep pool, five cliff-diving waterfall jumps ranging from five feet to 25 feet, a canyoning swim through a narrow passage, and other climbing adventures.
“It has a very cool expedition feel to it,” said Desafio Adventure co-owner, Suresh Krishnan. “It is different from everything else and is the newest, most extreme tour in the Arenal area, and probably even Costa Rica.”
The four-hour Gravity Falls tour is uniquely for small groups of expedition-seekers, whereas the Lost Canyon Adventures Canyoning tour, Desafio's most popular adventure tour, is suited for first-timers who want to get their feet wet (literally) in canyoning.
How do you choose which canyoning adventure tour is right for you? Said Suresh Krishnan: “Do you want to get wet and wild? Then, you should go to the Lost Canyon. If you want to go on an expedition at an exclusive extreme waterfall canyon, then you should go to Gravity Falls.”
