What You Can Expect
A van picks you and your party up from your hotel and takes you the private river valley in minutes. Greeted by professional guides, you saddle up on gentle Costa Rican Stepping Horse and ride into the Jungle where you may see monkeys and macaws. The horse ride is approximately 1.5 hours to the 180-foot waterfall called El Encanto, where you are fitted with a safety harness. Your guide will teach you in the jungle classroom how to rappel and zip line. After the instructions, you are taken to the top of the waterfall. An exhilarating descent through pool after pool to a cheering crowd below makes you feel alive. A short hike to the first platform of 8 stations to zip line through the jungle with the last run down the river over a minute long. The guides greet you to help you out of the gear and head to the Rancho for fresh pineapple and juice while you relax in the middle of a Jurassic Park setting.
