Challenge Gravity with Waterfall Climbing Tour in Costa Rica


Climbing walls is a great activity, but waterfalls are much better! The new Waterfall Climbing Tour at Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica Pacific takes guests up a tropical waterfall.

Rock climbing continues to grow in popularity in North America. The United States Forest Service Outdoor Recreation Trends report indicated that between 1999 and 2009, rock climbing participants increased by 9.5 per cent, to more than 10M climbers annually. With the growing popularity of rock climbing, challenges such as waterfall climbs are drawing more participants to unique locations.

To reach the zip line on the top of the waterfall, you have to climb it yourself with just a safety harness!
After a short 400 metre walk through the rainforest with a naturalist, guests arrive at the site of the Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica Pacific waterfall climb. The climb is approximately 50 metres of vertical, which is followed by two ziplines down to a hanging platform. To descend from the platform guests will perform a 25 metre free-fall rappel.

“We’re so excited to be launching this new attraction at our Costa Rica Pacific park,” says Annika Bratt, vice president of sales for Rainforest Adventures. “Our local staff members know this area so well. They’re ecstatic that they will be able to take guests right into one of nature’s most dramatic attractions.”

Dedicated to ecotourism, the team at Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica Pacific has constructed this attraction with minimal environmental impact and uses it to showcase the natural beauty of the rainforest and watershed. The Waterfall Climb means that the only way to the top of the zip line is human power – no vehicles allowed!

After climbing the waterfall and zip lining to the next platform, you have to rappel down.
The waterfall climbing tour is available at 9 a.m. and noon. Transportation from San Jose is also available (for a minimum of six people). The tour includes a visit to the Serpentarium (snake museum).

At Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica Pacific, visitors have numerous opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by boarding an aerial tram, strapping into a zipline harness, exploring the Serpentarium, grabbing binoculars for bird watching or heading out on an organized adventure, such as the family tour or the transportation tour.

Rainforest Adventures Park Locations Awarded By TripAdvisor with 2013 Certificate of Excellence

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2013
A day in Rainforest Adventures is often described by guest reviewers on TripAdvisor in words such as: fantastic, a complete blast, the best day ever, awesome, very fun with beautiful grounds, a wonderful tour, fun on 11 different levels, good family fun, and simply “WOOOHOOO!” Having an “awesome tour guide and beautiful sites” as quoted by reviewers, three park locations of Rainforest Adventures has received a TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” this year of 2013.

With each gaining an average of 4.5 stars review ratings, these locations are: Bobsled at Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios (Jamaica); Rainforest Excursion Tour (St. Lucia); and Rain Forest Aerial Trams in Jaco (Costa Rica Pacific). In order to qualify for the Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.

What can visitors and tourists expect to experience at Rainforest Adventures?

Aerial Tram in Costa Rica

Visitors have many opportunities to explore the surrounding rainforest by boarding an aerial tram which is available both in St. Lucia and Costa Rica Pacific. The SkyExplorer chairlift in Jamaica takes the tourists 700 feet above the rainforest, complete with the additional views of the picturesque shoreline, affording guests a captivating bird’s-eye view of the resort town of Ocho Rios and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Zip Lining in the Rainforest

In terms of exhilarating activities, nothing beats an experience of flying down the canopy zip lines, gliding from platform to platform in the jungle. In St. Lucia, visitors can add more thrill to zip lining by doing it under the moon-lit night sky.

In both Costa Rica and St. Lucia, bird enthusiasts and individuals who are looking to satisfy their curiosity on different birds can grab their binoculars and start spotting out a variety of species found in the tropical rain forests. While in Jamaica, visitors can witness nature’s frequent fliers -- the hummingbird -- up close and personal in the park’s hummingbird garden.

Jamaica Bobsled

And of course, the signature attraction of Mystic Mountain could not be missed by the tourists. Heading down fast the mountains, the gravity-powered bobsled ride is an activity inspired by the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team.

What does the manager of each park location has to say?
