Have a look at ourAdventure Waiver if you have questions about our Costa Rica adventure tour policies.
This adventure involves some inherent risk and physical exertion, so you must be in good physical condition to attempt it. 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 may be able to do these tours.
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. We reserve the right to cancel a trip due to unfavorable conditions & will only run a tour according to our company policies. Full refund is given if (on rare occasion) no tour is run.
Some hotels out of our normal pick-up zone may be me charged an extra drop-off and pick-up fee.

Everyone should do this trip! Although impossible to have done all the trips in Costa Rica, I can't see how this one can be topped. Amazing drive just to GET to the start (how they got the Land Rover up the track I'll never know) and probably the best, most professional (serious when they had to be, fun and crazy as soon as they could) guides I've experienced - ask for Andrés, and pray you get Diego 'Como un mono' tout Drive and jump with you! Serious jumps, great, wild location, and proper, tough jumping - not for the faint hearted! Even some of the rock/path scrambling and hiking were pretty exciting. Plus, beers, fruit, juice, and a full meal all included. Totally worth the money - thanks guys, will recommend you to everyone!

Absolutely a fantastic experience!!!! Definitely got our adrenalin pumping. Excellent guides who were all very friendly and encouraging. My son had a slight accident on the final jump which necessitated him needing to go to a medical clinic. The professionalism and caring that our guide showed as he personally transported and remained with us at the clinic was exceptional. Thanks a million!!! This company and tour are second to none

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 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!

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!

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.

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.
