Andres Madrigal’s Canyon tour in La Fortuna, Costa Rica

Two hundred feet seems like a long way when it’s straight down. Standing at the top of the last waterfall rappel of the day, I realized they saved the best for last. Desafio’s Lost Canyon tour in La Fortuna, in Costa Rica´s northern zone, took me down seven waterfalls. I splashed through pools, and even jumped in during some. You will get wet, which is part of the fun. Apart from my buddy Peter Majerle and our two guides, there was not even an inkling of human involvement in the forest. After the tour we dried up, changed clothes and were presented with two cups of steaming Costa Rican coffee and home-made empanadas. Pure bliss.

  1. We are going to Costa Rica in July. I would like to book 2 adults and 1 child (10 yrs old) for this adventure (waterfall rappel ) on July 28. We are staying at the arenal lodge. How much would this cost?

    • Adventurous Joe Coffee’s trips are run in April and while we don’t go to the Arenal area with our trips, we love it there and have friends in La Fortuna who operate year-round. Here is their information and have a blast!…
