Experience an adventure of a lifetime in one of Mother Natures tropical waterfall fun parks!
Canyoning, also known as canyoneering in North America, is a vertical sport that involves descending a series of waterfalls using techniques like rappelling, jumping, sliding, and boulder scrambling. Our canyon involves mostly rappelling. We have 6 waterfalls varying in height that are in succession from smallest to biggest. This allows the guest to become comfortable with rappelling before descending Iguana Falls, our last and most adrenaline pumping waterfall.
All our techniques are demonstrated by professional qualified guides with over 12 years of international canyon guiding experience (Switzerland, France, Italy, New Zealand, Japan and Costa Rica).
The tour starts at the Base Camp where you are introduced to your guides and the equipment youÂ´ll be using (harness, descending device and helmet). From Base Camp itÂ´s a 5 min. walk to the top of the canyon where you will receive thorough safety instructions before starting your adventure.
When you reach the first waterfall (which is 5 meters, or 15 feet high) you will be taught the fundamentals and proper techniques of rappelling. Then you are on your way - with 5 more waterfalls to go! The largest of the falls is 25 meters, or 75 feet! The canyon ends at the Uvita River where there are some pristine swimming holes to relax and reflect. Then the Canyon Cruzer will pick you up and take you back to Base Camp where you will receive a happy landing snack and drink.
We hope you will join us soon at TikiVillas to experience your very own Magic of Nature moment....
