After the safety talk, you’ll be ready to start the 2-hour adventure in the Lost Canyon: rappelling down tropical waterfalls, jumping into pools, zipping your way down on guided rappels, river tracing, down, climbing the canyon walls and river boulders and hiking up through the rainforest.

At the end of this amazing time you’re sure to be ready to enjoy a delicious lunch!

After lunch you'll be taken back to your hotel to relax and soak in the natural hot springs to recover from your day’s adventures and enjoy a nice dinner.
