  • 4 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Feel a surge of adrenaline as you abseil down the waterfalls of the Arenal Rainforest amidst volcanic waters!

Abseiling in Arenal

After picking you up from your hotel, we'll head to the area of rivers and waterfalls in Arenal, a natural paradise where we'll begin our abseiling experience. Before starting, we'll be given detailed safety instructions.

Then we'll make our way through an area of tropical forest until we reach the waterfalls, accompanied on our walk by different species of birds, mammals and amphibians that live there.

When we abseil down the waterfall, we'll feel a rush of adrenaline as we come into direct contact with the volcanic water. While we enjoy the thrill, we'll admire the jungle from a different perspective.

Then you'll have free time to rest and enjoy a relaxing dip in the pools. And if you're the daring type, you can even jump from the top of a waterfall!

After working up an appetite, we'll fuel up with a typical Costa Rican meal of rice, beans, salad, chicken, meat or fish and natural soft drink in a local restaurant.

We'll take you back to your hotel at the end of the abseiling activity.
