If you are an adrenaline junkie you will find your fix in Costa Rica. From the sea to the rainforest, this country is thriving with adventure.


Rapelling is a true adrenaline rush and a really cool way to experience some of Costa Rica’s most magnificent landscapes. The sport, also known as canyoning, involves a controlled descent down sheer rock faces & waterfalls using a secured rope. Hanging from a cliff with a waterfall crashing on your helmet will definitely get your heart pumping!

For an adventure of a lifetime join Costa Canyoning in Domincal.


In this tropical paradise you will find world-class rafting. Costa Rica has 14 major river systems that begin in the volcanic mountain ranges and flow out towards the Caribbean sea. Join a multi or single day white water tour ranging from a calm Class I to an extreme thrill of Class V.

Our recommendation is to adventure with Pro Rafting in Manuel Antonio.

Zip Line:

Since you will be seeing monkey’s all over Costa Rica, why not fly through the tree tops pretending to be one yourself?   Experience panoramic views for acres while getting a birds eye view of the lively forest a hundred feet below you.  You’ll find a zipline tour in any region of this country.
