Updated: Sep 5, 2023

Thrill-seeking in Costa Rica, the ultimate outdoor playground, where adrenaline pumping adventures await – look no further! We've got you covered. Nestled in the heart of Central America, this lush and diverse country offers an array of extreme sports that cater to your inner daredevil. From soaring through the treetops on ziplines to rappelling down cascading waterfalls, Costa Rica is the ultimate destination for those seeking an adrenaline rush. Let’s look at some of the thrilling activities that await you here in Costa Rica.

High-Flying Zipline Adventures

Costa Rica's dense rainforests and captivating landscapes make it the perfect backdrop for ziplining adventures. Did you know that ziplining was invented in Costa Rica by a biologist to study the rainforest canopy? You can glide through the forest, over rivers and through canyons, witnessing breathtaking views of the surrounding flora and fauna. Popular ziplining spots include Monteverde, Arenal, Rincon de la Vieja, and Manuel Antonio.

Be a Jungle Explorer on a Tarzan Swing!

Imagine channeling your inner Tarzan as you swing from ropes amidst the jungle canopy. Tarzan swings offer an adrenaline-packed combination of free-fall excitement and a rush of air as you soar through the trees. One of the best places to experience this thrill is at Diamante Eco Adventure Park in Guanacaste, where their "Superman" swing lets you feel like a true superhero.

Waterfall Rappelling: A Vertical Descent into Beauty

Costa Rica's abundant waterfalls provide the perfect opportunity for waterfall rappelling, also known as canyoning. Descend vertical cliffs with tumbling water all around you. This is one of the most exciting of all outdoor activities in Costa Rica, and sublimely refreshing on a hot day.

White Water Rafting: Conquer the Rapids

The rivers of Costa Rica boast some of the most thrilling white water rafting experiences in the world. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced rafter, there are options for all skill levels. For adrenaline-pumping rafting trips, consider the Pacuare River or Rio Tenorio, known for challenging Class III and IV rapids. Alternatively, the Sarapiquí River provides a slightly tamer yet equally exciting rafting experience.

Surfing: Ride the Waves of the Pacific

With its vast coastline along the Pacific Ocean, Costa Rica is a surfer's paradise. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a beginner, you'll find waves suitable for your skill level. The beaches of Tamarindo, Grande, Avellanas, Guiones, Jaco, and Santa Teresa are renowned for their consistent surf breaks and a laid-back surfer vibe.
