Pacuare Tropical Canyoning
This tour lets you experience the adventure sport of canyoning, or canyoneering, which combines hiking, climbing and rappelling.
The adventure includes a hike through the rainforest and exploration of El Tesorito Creek Canyon, where you’ll make several short rappels perfect for learning the technique before an exhilarating rappel down a 30-meter (90-foot) rock wall.
The tour can be done just after breakfast, or lunch, and it begins with safety training and instruction in using the equipment.
You’ll hike for about 15 minutes through the rainforest from the main lodge to a point where you begin your descent into the narrow canyon of El Tesorito Creek. The canyon exploration provides a great introduction to rappelling, since it includes six short rappels of between 2 and 20 meters (6-65 feet) that will prepare you for a final rappel of more than 30 meters (90 feet). After that, you’ll continue hiking through the creek and the forest back to the lodge.
