According to the English Thesaurus, rappelling is:

“the act or method of moving down a steep inclineor past an overhang by means of a double rope secured above andplaced around the body, usually under the left thigh and over theright shoulder, and paid out gradually in the descent.”



Where can I find the places in Costa Rica where rappel is both safe and fun?

  • Pacuare Lodge: one of the best hotels in Costa Rica, Pacuare Lodge offers many of the top tours in Costa Rica. The rappelling tour becomes a canyoneering tour during part of the experience because you descend between waterfalls.

When is it a good time to rappel in Costa Rica?
