I cannot say enough good things about this adventure. If someone tried to engineer and craft the bottom up an unforgettable experience, it would look like this - think when the Goonies jumped in rivers and were shot down slides in the underground river -...More

You should be comfortable with being in dark caves (obviously), climbing slippery rocks, rapelling down for 10-20 m, jumping into pools from 8m above. If you are, it's a great experience! Our guides were young, relaxed, professional guys. Equipment was perfectly fine as well

Great canyoning trek! Good service, our guide spoke enough English to explain what to do and we felt safe! Unfortunately we didn’t speak enough Spanish to completely understand all his stories, but that’s of course not his fault :)! Loved it that the canyoning was...More

This was a spectacular trip from San Cristobal to the cave. The climbing guides were knowledgeable and placed a high priority on safety. My trip underground lasted about 5 hours and I enjoyed every minute of it. You should book your trip with this company!

Guides were excellent and attentive to our needs. Best outdoor adventure I've done. You should be in good physical condition, there is a bit of hard climbing, but after that the repelling & underground river sliding is totally awesome.
