Experience canyoning, an exciting multi-sport adventure that is gaining popularity for the masses.

You will be instructed on the safe and proper use of our equipment and then begin your 5 minute hike to the first zipline. After 2 "zips" over the river do a dry training rappel to familiarize you with the proper technique. A short hike down river and you will have some swimming and cliff jumping (4-25 feet) opportunities if you desire! Now it is time to get wet! 4 rappels through the waterfalls and you will do it all on your own. At all times you will be “safe and backed up” by your guides! After a short climb up we will exit the canyon and hike 15-20 minutes back to the truck. By the time you are finished you can say “I am a canyoneer!” Enjoy a tropical fruit snack and a refreshing beverage before returning to your hotel. This tour is fun for the whole family!

What people are saying about Jaco

Very professional team. Pick up at the hotel at the agreed time. Clear instructions before departure. The aerial tram route is good because there is no animals, but it is due to the oppressive heat. The activity of the zipline was the highlight of the activity. Interesting circuits, several stations, magnificent view but above all the skill, kindness and joie de vivre of the instructors. Always smiling and have no shortage of compliments and advice. Thank you

This was an incredible experience. The guides were great — very reassuring and professional and we felt like we were in good hands the entire time. That being said, this experience is definitely not for those with a fear of heights or who don’t trust themselves physically.

They show you some trees, cook, smash, crush beans to make into hot chocolate to drink. Very informative...BUT... this is not a plantation tour and they fo NOT male chocolate here from this place for you to purchase. It was worth the $40-45pp.

We had so much fun! Gary was an excellent guide and we learned a ton about chocolate that we did not know before. Plus we got to eat and drink some of the best chocolate I have ever had! Highly recommend this experience!

Lamar and Joaquin were awesome guides. Very friendly and funny. They took great care of us and we had a ball.
