If coming from San Jose, we can arrange this special Gravity Falls Waterfall Jumping canyoning expedition as a Desafio Adventure Connection where your journey is the adventure! Be sure to ask one of our Adventure Specialists to help you with your reservations.

This tour is considered an extreme adventure and advisable for those who are athletic and physically fit ages 18-55. No experience necessary. There are different jump heights throughout the tour and paths in case you decide to skip a jump - but the idea is to push yourself to your limits on this Costa Rica extreme tour Gravity Falls!

Have a look at our Adventure Waiver if you have questions about our Costa Rica adventure tour policies.



Recommended ages 18-55. For reasons beyond our control (climate, river levels, etc.), we may change to a more-suitable tour with an equal or similar adventure-appeal or offer other tour options so you don't miss out on a fun day in Costa Rica. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions & will only run a tour according to our policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run. This adventure involves some inherent risk and physical exertion, so you must be in good physical condition! While the recommended weight limit for our canyoneering (rappelling) tour and most zip line tours is 220 lbs (100 kilos) it’s more about waist size than weight as the ropes (canyoneering) and cables (zip lines) are rated for well over 220 lbs but the maximum waist size for the harnesses used for these tours is 42 inches. So if you are a little over 220 lbs but your waist is less than 42 inches you can still do these tours.

NOTE: We have an extra transport charge for hotels outside of our normal pick-up
ZONE 1: 1-22 pax: No extra charge
ZONE 2: Lost Iguana, Observatory Lodge, Arenal Lodge & The Springs Resort: $20 per trip or $40 roundtrip. ZONE 3: Rancho Margot, Linda Vista, Arenal Vista: $25; $50 rndtrp
ZONE 4: Leaves & Lizards, V. Hermosa, Tilajari: $35/trip; $70 rndtrp



The most adventurous thing I have ever done! The guides were excellent and ensured our safety throughout the tour. It had been raining for about a week and a half and on the day of our tour so the water was really roaring thru the canyon. We were unable to take or get any pictures because of safety concerns with the amount and speed of the water but it will be a long time before I forget this experience! The video of the tour I saw in the office in La Fortuna focused on the jumping part of the tour. For me, that was the easy part. I am 62 yrs old, not health issues but was unprepared physically for the challenge of climbing up the canyon walls. This tour not only requires the courage to jump off of the ledges into the rushing water but also upper body and leg strength to climb with, at times, only rocky crevices for foot and hand holds. I could not have completed it without the occasional help of the guides. I strongly recommend the office staff question potential participants regarding their physical abilities such as being able to climb a rope, rock cliffs and very steep trails. But, boy, what a thrill! Surpassed any thrills you may get from riding coaters at Cedar Point, OH!

We were lucky enough to have Eddie and David take us on our Gravity falls trip. There were only 3 of us on the trip so we got a lot of individual attention. The trip left right on time and we made a stop at our lunch location to order our food for later. We then drove on through some very bumpy roads up to our starting point. We repelled in to a deep gorge and jumped in the the beautiful water from the waterfall above. It was amazing. We did a lot of climbing and jumping in the cool water. Our guides were a lot of fun in addition to being safety conscious and made the day special. We saw some beautiful blue morpho butterflies and small lizards. We had some delicious fresh fruit that Eddie had purchased at our lunch stop. The passion fruit was amazing as was the pineapple. Our lunch was yummy and filling. This trip is not for the faint of heart. The climbing is strenuous and the jumping is from significant heights. If you have a fear of heights this is not a trip for you. For the adventurous types and adrenaline junkies you will love it.

I just got back from our gravity falls trip. I have to say from someone that has worked in the outdoor adventure recreation business. You guys have a great setup with great staff. One of our guides David was amazing and stood out among the others as fun, friendly, and professional. With such a great staff it takes a lot to stand out like that. All in all it was an amazing experience. Thank you all.

The gravity falls tour was the most awesome tour I have done so far!! It is packed with adrenaline, fun, and amazing views of the rainforest. I did the tour with my husband this June 2015 on our honeymoon. It was just us two so it ended up being a private tour which was even better. We had David and Edward as our guides. They were energetic and fun guides. They kept cheering us on for support and even did cool tricks when jumping into the water. The view of rappelling next to a waterfall and into the base of the falls is indescribable. There was even somewhat of a tarzan swing which was fun. It was such a fun and memorable tour. Everything about it was natural, no fake stairs, or ropes to hang onto while hiking to get to the jumps. All in all amazing!! if you like adrenaline, adventure, and getting wet this is definitely for you. We had pineapple at the end of the tour and then they drove us to a soda place to get some food which was included in the price. We would definitely do this again next time we are in CR.

My wife and I went on the Gravity Falls tour a few days ago and had a blast. Absolutely beautiful river and canyon in the middle of nowhere Costa Rica. The tour was a good mix between fun and adrenaline-pumping without being overly scary. Highly recommended!
