Our awesome canyons are located just a short distance from the town of Golfito. Prepare to get wet and experience the thrill of a lifetime.
The tour begins with a 10 minute ride to la Purruja Village. Then, we will hike for one kilometer to the top of the hill, and to the waterfalls. Once here, your guides will fit you with canyoning equipment and explain the proper way to descend the falls. When you’re comfortable with the procedure, you’ll begin rappelling down the first waterfall, divided into four sections (35 meters, 16 meters, 12 meters and 10 meters), at the base, the creek leads into a pristine canyon. From here on, there are six smaller waterfalls to rappel down, a few swimming-holes and a couple short jumps. Once finished, your guides will help you getting back to the vehicles and you’ll head back to Golfito.
This tour can be enjoyed by anyone in moderate/good physical condition. It is child friendly and no experience is needed.
And one more thing, don’t forget to bring your smiles and sense of adventure!

IMPORTANT: We can only accept a maximum of 2 children under 100 lbs (46 kilos) per tour – the reason being that each child must be accompanied by an extra guide. If a member of your party weighs less than 100 lbs, the guides will determine if they’ll need to be accompanied by a guide down the waterfalls. If so, a fee of $30 will need to be paid to the operator upon arrival. If the guides determine that it is not necessary to have an extra guide, there is no additional fee.
