Rappelling in Costa Rica PDF Print E-mail
Eating blood sausage, base jumping, smashing a cockroach with your bare hand, removing your own stitches, flying to the Caribbean in a puddle jumper and, obviously, sky diving, are the activities that, lumped with rappelling hurtling yourself either headlong or backwards off a cliff while tied to a rope are on the list of examples under the definition of "counterintuitive."

Rappelling in Costa RicaThey require you to squash your natural instinct of fear or revulsion, but, unlike eating blood sausage, called morcilla in Costa Rica and which some people actually like, and unlike base jumping, rappelling should not induce either vomiting or injury it is safe and pleasant. Throughout the country at the crests of waterfalls, the lips of gorges and even from the trunks of trees from steel platforms, Costa Rica is equipped to see its natural side while dangling.

Businesses from the canyons at the foot of Turrialba Volcano in the Central Valley to those at the foot of Rinc6n de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula to the southern Pacific coast near Parrita, as well as other choice cliffs around the country, have set anchors and attached ropes for fun lovers and naturalists. Suspended above the forest canopy or a river canyon, lowering yourself at your own speed either for a gut-wrenching thrill of a mellow, changing vista, rappelling lends a new, do it yourself perspective on Costa Rica.
