On ADR Adventure Park you will travel down the barrel of a river in a Hummer truck, riding up a very steep mountain, hike via ferrata over looking the beautiful scenery, feel the adrenaline rush as you fly through the skies on the Tarzan swing and then get prepared to be soaked as you rappel and do canyoning through the most spectacular waterfalls.
Private transportation will pick you up at your hotel or private rental home to take you for a delicious home-made breakfast at the Amigos del Rio central office, then you will start your adventure and head on to San Antonio de Damas, where you will take the Hummer while you travel down the barrel of a river. After this ride, you will have a 10 minute HIKE through nature trails before arriving at the main quarters. Here your guides will give you all the special equipment and instructions.
Now, let the fun continue and increase as you start hiking VIA FERRATA, which means that you will be walking at the borders of the canyon, attached to the walls by special ropes. While you walk down the canyon of Río Damitas, you will get rid of all your fears as you experience the TARZAN SWING for a couple of times, then you will find the first RAPEL, a small one of just 13 meters. From here you will continue and fly over a waterfall in the first CANYONING EXPERIENCE of 35 meters. The next one will make you go “literally” through a waterfall and will let you FREE FALL into a pristine pond! From here you will find a new RAPEL, that leads to a new CANYONING LINE and to a CAVING LADDER which is an ascend of about 6 meters that will get you to ‘La Galeria” our natural platform from where you do a mix of RAPEL AND CANYONING LINE from the top of a waterfall (about 60 meters). You will have the adventure of a life time, and you will want to come back again and again, guaranteed

WHAT TO BRING:
First of all, remember you will be on a full adrenaline adventure at the heart of the Costa Rican jungle, expect some humidity and warm temperatures (and unexpected rain from time to time).
Taking that into consideration, we recommend that you wear comfortable, light clothing, that can dry easily when wet. Some people will prefer pants than shorts for the rappel, but this is not necessary. Remember that you will get wet, so extra set of clothes and a towel for your trip back is highly recommended. Also if you get cold easily a light sport jacket can come in handy.
For good traction, make sure you wear rubber soled shoes, water shoes would be ideal, but sneakers or strap on sandals will do the trick (no flip flops!). Again, remember we will be walking on slippery rocks, so this recommendation is for your safety. If you would like to use insect repellent (not really needed though) you can bring some, and the regular rule when in the sun in Costa Rica,wear sun protection (water proof). Do not bring sun glasses, or leave them in the van. If you need prescription glasses, make sure you wear a strap on them so you don’t lose them in the middle of the jungle!
Even though you can bring your own waterproof camera, we highly recommend that you don’t. You will be hanging upside down cables, rapelling, canyoning and it is going to be difficult for you to get a good picture and enjoy your trip at the same time you are making sure your camera does not fall from a tree or into the waterfalls! We have trained PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS that will take great shots for you for a very affordable price.
