25 Feb - 2 Mar

Bajos del Toro, Costa Rica

Costa Rica is well-known for its stunning beaches, lush rainforests, and incredible wildlife. It is also becoming known as a canyoning destination, with some of the most spectacular canyons in Latin America.

The canyon rendezvous is hosted by Mauricio Odio, owner of Kabata Outdoor Adventures in San Jose Costa Rica, and Rich Carlson, owner of Canyons & Crags in Cedar City Utah and Santiago NL Mexico. It has been several years since our last canyon rendezvous in Costa Rica. You don’t want to miss this one. Participation will be limited, so be sure to register soon.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Costa Rica.

The Canyons & The Program

There are several technical canyons in the area. We anticipate participants will be organizing canyon trips every day during the rendezvous. Canyon beta will be available at the rendezvous and we are expecting a few local canyoneers who are familiar with the canyons to attend.

Included in the program ...

  • Accommodations from 25 February (Sunday afternoon check-in) to 2 March (Saturday morning check-out).
  • Welcome dinner Sunday evening, 25 February.
  • Workshops and presentations throughout the week.
  • Rendezvous t-shirt designed by Pepe “Barranco” Benavides.

Numerous camping sites are available around the property. Bathrooms and showers are available to campers. Tents are available for rent.


The drive from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose to the rendezvous site is approx. two hours on paved roads.

Rental cars are available at the airport. 4×4 is not absolutely necessary, but may prove beneficial.

We can help arrange group transportation once you have your flight information. Vans hold up to 8 people. Price is $30 one way for minimum of 5 passengers.


Canyon Entrance Fees

The majority of the canyons in the area are on private property. The farmers who own the land require a small fee, which varies from canyon to canyon, but typically less than $10.00 US.
