The tour guide (owner of the business) was great. He picked my brother and I up at our hotel in Jacó, took us to a hole-in-the-wall Costa Rican food stand with fantastic food for very cheap, and even dropped us off/picked up at our 1st excursion before canyoning despite going through a different company. The trail to the waterfalls seemed... More

They lost the contract to operate in spider canyon on the property of Mistico Hanging Brides... Book directly with Mistico to save yourself time and money. La Roca here will just pick you up at your hotel and take you to Mistico where their employees will do the rest. The guides that La Roca had were more fun and much... More

If we had to choose only one thing to do again in Costa Rica, this would be it. It was so fun and thrilling. The guides were all amazing. They were patient and made us all feel like rock stars as we rappelled into waterfalls! It was definitely a thrill, but we always felt safe and even my 9 and... More

We had an absolute blast canyoneering in Spider Monkey Canyon. Our kids were 15, 12, and 9. Harold the lead guide was AWESOME. He was accompanied by three other guides. Safety was a priority for them and we felt safe the entire time while replying 50 feet down a waterfall. They bring along a photographer so you do not need... More

We used their new service right in Jaco. It's a 15 minute drive from downtown. They run you up a riverbed in an old 4-wheeler and then you hike uphill for 1/2 mile thru jungle to head of waterfalls. They use good gear and techniques so most fit people can do it - if they're brave enough to try. You... More

If you are going to do Canyoning do it with these guys. Professional, funny and made it a very enjoyable experience from start to finish. They are very good for rafting too!

My husband and I were in Costa Rica during the summer . He wanted to do a trip like this (I was NOT excited, I am afraid of heights). We booked the trip same day in town.

What a great way to experience a gorgeous canyon. There were 5 of us and 2 were experienced Rock climbers and all of us loved the adventure. We all got really wet, dropped over ledges, jumped into cool pools of water and just had a great time. I'd do it again

Had a blast!! There was even a photographer that offered to follow us through the caves and take photos for $20. At the end of the tour he put our photos on a CD. What an adventure! I was nervous about how my teenage son would feel about this adventure but he LOVED it!! Highly recommend! Especially for kids!

I had never done repelling or zip lining before this trip. The guides are so great! They watched over each and every one of us, knew our names, and made the adventure so fun! I never felt unsafe, they made sure...checking in frequently with each of us. If you are in the La Fortunate area this is a must!
