What to expect
  • Explore the magnificent wild landscape of Children’s Eternal Rainforest, a remote area of the jungle discovered by your adventurous guides. After morning pickup from your La Fortuna hotel, travel in an air-conditioned van to this secret retreat while learning about the history and highlights of the landscape. When you arrive at the base camp, gear up with a harness and helmet and receive a thorough safety orientation. Get straight to the thrills with a heart-stopping, 80-foot (24-meter) rappel down a waterfall. Push off of rocks during the misty descent, and then let go to plunge into a pool below. Next, hike through the surrounding rain forest along slippery, rugged terrain that keeps you on your toes. Trek to the mouth of the canyon, where you rappel down a steep cliff and plunge into another refreshing pool. Enjoy a swim in the river that cuts through the canyon or take a break and let the currents carry you on your back. Continue on through a deep section of the canyon, where you traverse the rugged terrain using grips and footholds in the rocky wall. Along the way, conquer gravity with four waterfall free jumps ranging in height from 10 to 30 feet (3 to 9 meters).  Swim to shore after your final waterfall leap and replenish your energy with a refreshing snack of tropical fruit. Trek out of the rain forest with your guides, and travel by van to a local restaurant for a hearty lunch of typical Costa Rican cuisine. After you eat your fill, rest your weary muscles on the return drive to La Fortuna. Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Incredible, Unforgettable Experience!!!
Wow! Words cannot describe how incredible this experience is! If you want adventure, beauty and nature, it’s here for the taking, nature at it’s finest, this is the absolute tour of a lifetime!!!
This was my husband and I’s second experience with gravity falls in a 5 year time span and we came back because it was our favorite experience in La Fortuna! and it still remains our #1, thank you Desafio!!!! SO MUCH! This was our 10 year anniversary trip and it still remains our favorite experience in the world! What a spectacular, unforgettable
and amazing experience of nature’s playground!

You’ll rappel down the most beautiful waterfall into a gorgeous canyon/lagoon (and maybe be lucky enough to see morpho butterflies), and jump into the most incredible waterfalls while challenging yourself and strength, but you can do it!!!

Know your strengths (both physical and mental), wear sturdy shoes, and let go to natures beauty!

Our guides were incredible yet again! We felt so safe with them, and had such a great time with them by our side! O’Neil (I hope I got that right because he was AMAZING and so fun and funny and safe) and David (who we were SO VERY excited to see again after several years…he’s outstanding, an AMAZING guide and a very gifted, incredible and wonderful photographer, thank you for documenting our journey and more!!!!) 9/9/21

Leave your worries behind, trust your knowledgeable guides, and dive into an incredible, unforgettable paradise! Thank you Desafio for yet another unforgettable adventure into your amazing office! I cannot wait to visit again!!! Thank you for the amazing memories and AMAZING jump!!! Wish I worked in your office, it’s my dream! Pura Vida!

Exhilarating way to experience the rainforest!
Aug 2021
This adventure is not for the faint of heart. The day begins with 4 wheel drive to a secluded, private part of the river. We were given equipment and instructions and set off with our personable and capable guide Arturo. Rappelled down a beautiful waterfall, jumped into swirling waters, swung from a Tarzan swing and traversed a beautiful part of the rain forest. The morning ended with a delicious typical Costa Rican meal.

Best adventure in Arenal!
Such an exhilarating and fun experience. We had a group of 12 with 7 teenager so if you are looking for something more adventurous and to find your limits this is it. You will get wet so definitely bring a change of clothes. The rapelling and cliff jumps were intense!

This was one that we will be talking about for years!

Highlight of our trip!
It was amazing! Worth the early wake up. Huge canyoning and great jumps. All the guys were amazing. They only give you a harness and life jacket, so come prepared. Other times we have been given water shoes and a wetsuit. But the water was great and tennis shoes were fine. Thanks david!

Best tour during our trip
May 2021
Our tour with Desafio was probably our favorite ting we did on our trip to Costa Rica. The guides were awesome and kept us laughing the entire time. It's an awesome adrenaline rush, and we felt like kids playing in a rainforest playground. There was a great mix of rappelling, waterfall jumping, and rope swinging. The tour ended with an authentic Costa Rican lunch back at their restaurant in town. Would highly recommend for those adventure seekers!

Great adventure into Arenal canyons!
Super fun experience in the Costa Rican jungle. Guided by incredible experts with a focus on safety, we rappelled down waterfalls and jumped into beautiful pools. The finale, a 45 foot leap into a deep pool... what a blast! Special thanks to Gustavo (The Viking) and Reuben. We learned so much and had a great time as a family!

What a Thrilling experience!
Nov 2020 • Couples
This was such an awesome adventure! This is now my second time doing this Canyoning excursion and it was my husbands first. It was such a thrill! First you start off with repelling down the 150ft waterfall. It was nerve wracking waiting to start but once you get started piece of cake! And that water is mighty refreshing! Our tour guides were Luis, Oneil, Jose. They were so awesome! They ensured we were safe but had a great time! A couple times I almost fell just from walking on the uneven rocks and every time one of the guys were there to catch me! The 40ft jump at the end was so much fun! The lunch prepared was so delicious! It was so fresh and healthy! They also did covid screening and hand sanitizing for covid prevention. Great service and a wonderful time! Thank you!

This work trip was so fun! The guides were great. There are a couple fun rappels and several jumps into pools, one HIGH one, if you want to. I almost canceled this tour, but I was glad I didn’t.

So much adventure packed into one morning!
Jan 2020
If you love adventure, then you HAVE to do the Desafio gravity falls waterfall jumping tour. This combination tour has a bit of everything – rappelling over waterfalls, cliff jumping, hiking, and rock climbing. It was an absolute blast.

The tour starts with an early pick up at 6:30 am from your hotel in La Fortuna for an hour drive out to the countryside where the waterfalls are located. I was nervous as I had never been rappeling before, but the guides were extremely knowledgeable and supportive. Once I started the rappel, I was loving every second of it!

The rest of the morning includes five cliff diving waterfall jumps ranging from five feet to 25 feet, a canyoning swim through a narrow passage, and a small rock climbing adventure. Don't worry if you don't want to jump that high - the guides can help you rappel down as an alternative. The tour takes place in an isolated rainforest canyon and the scenery is STUNNING. We were the only people there, which made it all the more magical. The guides take photos of you during the tour which you can buy after for $20 per couple (you can split with a friend).

I couldn't believe how much we had done and it wasn't even lunchtime yet! The tour burns a ton of energy but thankfully a HUGE buffet lunch is included at their new restaurant, Hunters & Gatherers. It was local Costa Rican cuisine and super delicious. I may have gone back for thirds of the fried plantain...

Desafio runs a few other adventure tours in La Fortuna and I highly recommend booking with them if you're looking for a great company. The guides were so professional, knowledgeable, and fun! I'd do any tour with them again in a heartbeat.
