First Stop: Gravity Falls Waterfall Jumping
Deep down in the Costa Rican jungle lies our newest and most extreme tour yet: The Gravity Falls Waterfall Jumping canyoning tour. This tour starts off with a rappel along the edge of a thundering 140-ft waterfall. When you reach the bottom, you’ll have to jump into the deep pool and swim your way to shore. You’ll be faced with a series of cliff jumps ranging from a 10-ft technical jump to a 30-ft jump off another waterfall. Throughout the adventure, you will have opportunities to swim, river-float, down-climb, hike and maneuver your way through this isolated and exclusive canyon.
Next Stop – the Final Descent: White Water Rafting on the Balsa River
True to the Desafio name, you will CHALLENGE yourself as you paddle down 10 kilometers of exciting rapids. As you descend down this beautiful class 2-3 river, you’ll have a chance to admire the lush greenery, vines, and different types of insects, birds and animals — your eagle-eyed guides will even point out the monkeys, sloths and toucans along the way. About half way down the river your guides will provide you with a snack of fresh tropical fruit as you relax or go for a swim in the refreshing river pool. Your photographer will show you photos of your rafting trip so you can see the elation on your face as you brave the rapids on this exciting white water rafting river trip!
When your rafting adventure is finished, you will get to change into your dry clothes and sit down for a relaxing delicious meal at our exclusive local hangout at the El Salto secret swimming hole ont he Fortuna River. Here you'll enjoy a delicious, fresh, all-you-can-eat tropical buffet of local traditional food. You'll love the flow of this amazing extreme day in Costa Rica!
