      Arenal Canyon Rappelling and Mountain Biking

      Arenal, Costa Rica
      From (USD) $211 Per Person (Minimum 4)
      • Rappelling: Get your equipment, instructions, and safety briefing, then follow your guides into the canyon to rappel down three waterfalls and a sheer rock wall.
      • The Monkey Drop: After rappelling down a 165-foot waterfall, climb 20 feet up a canyon wall to a short trail and zoom via zip line across the canyon, 80 feet high.
      • Lunch, mountain biking, a picnic, and a dip: Refuel with a delicious meal in lush tropical gardens, then mount up for the ride to El Castillo, a picturesque village on beautiful Lake Arenal. Bring a swimsuit and towel – the blue-green water is hard to resist.
      About This Arenal Tour

      Cascading waterfalls and cliff climbs. Canyons and coatis. Zip lines, mountain biking, and rappelling. A simmering, mile-high volcano and a cool lake more than 100 feet deep. This tour packs a lot of adventure into one day.

      A coati, by the way, is a peculiar Latin American mammal that resembles a raccoon but has a long, almost pig-like snout. The "hog-nosed coon" is just one of more than 400 bird and animal species that inhabit the area around Lake Arenal, so there's no telling what you might see on this epic expedition: howler monkeys, sloths, parrots, toucans, egrets, kingfishers ... even a jaguar is possible, if unlikely. It's one of the few big cats that enjoys swimming, and the lake is very tempting, whether you've been pawing through the jungle in search of prey or just pedaling past the volcano.

      Your experience begins with an exciting 4x4 truck drive to a private ranch house, where you'll gear up for a morning of waterfall rappelling, rock climbing, hiking through the rainforest, and zip lining across the canyon. After a relaxing lunch, we'll head out on sturdy mountain bikes for the ride to El Castillo, a lakeside village well off the beaten path that nevertheless attracts kite and windsurfers from the all over the world. If the wind is right, they'll put on quite a show for your picnic on the shore.

      Sunken cities 

      At 33 square miles, Lake Arenal is the largest body of water in Costa Rica. But it was only about 11 square miles until 1979, when it was expanded to accommodate a hydroelectric dam that today supplies about 17 percent of the country's electricity. It was the start of Costa Rica's world-leading commitment to green energy and ecotourism, although some locals may not have been happy about it: Two towns lie abandoned at the bottom of the lake.
