Costa Rica Canyoning with Tropical Escapade

Where are my adventure lovers at? To know me is to know I love risk, adrenaline, and adventure in every area of life. As the years pass, my love of living life increases daily.

My adventures around the world include scuba diving, white water rafting (and near-death experience!), skydiving outdoors and indoors in Atlanta, oceanview zip lining, surfing in Costa Rica, and canyoning in Costa Rica to name a few adventures.

I am no stranger to adventure

When I saw Tropical Escapade offered canyoning in Costa Rica, I got excited! Earlier this summer, we connected on press trips and digital marketing in Costa Rica. As a digital nomad, I traveled the month to the Osa Peninsula.

National Geographic has named the Osa Peninsula, the most biologically intense place on earth.

If you didn't know, Costa Rica is home to over 500,000 species of animals making it one of the Top 20 most biodiverse countries in the world. During my time in Costa Rica in the Osa Peninsula, I experienced biodiversity with nature, wildlife and adventure. For days on end, I woke up to the endless sites and sounds of wildlife. Throughout the day, I would be in awe of Scarlet Macaws, Monkeys, and Toucans.

I experienced limitless time in nature in tropical rainforests, rivers, and beaches in the Osa Peninsula including adventures like snorkeling in Cano Island!

With my love of nature, wildlife and adventure, I couldn't resist Extreme Canyoning with Tropical Escapade!

Costa Rica Canyoning Adventures

Canyoning in Costa Rica

All About Canyoning

Canyoning is an adventure lover's dream. It involves traveling in canyons with non-stop adventure.

Undoubtedly, canyoning is a multi-sport adventure with hiking, jumping, rappelling, and swimming all in one. The experience of canyoning teaches you that you may handle more than you think.

It is one of, if not THE most, fun adventure sport EVER!

Seriously, I am super present, full of joy, and usually cannot stop laughing when I do it. At the same time, I am mindful to keep safety at the forefront with the guide, equipment, and each step.

This is not one of those times you go off alone to try out canyoning without a tour guide. It involves anchors, ropes, helmets, gloves, techniques, and insider knowledge of the canyons.

I am very adventurous, and at the same time, there is no way I would dare try canyoning alone. Having a guide increases your safety, as well as knowledge of the canyon and technique!

With any adventure sport, there are risks involved. Even with the best guide, equipment, and caution, injuries may happen.

During both times I went canyoning, I wore a halter top, shorts, a bathing suit, and water shoes with good grip. Wet suits and gloves are recommended to help with rope burns and environmental reactions.

My Experiences With Tropical Escapade

This is my second time experiencing an adventure in Costa Rica with Tropical Escapade and related tourism brands. I enjoyed snorkeling in Cano Island in August 2021!

Thanks to my experiences, connecting with Cindy, and guides like Fernando on my Extreme Canyoning Adventure, I already know it won't be my last.
