Costa Rica: Bunji Jumping

Where the sun always shines

For the adventurous, thrill-seeking tourist, there is bungee jumping in Costa Rica. Costa Rica's bungee jumping hot spot, the old bridge over the Colorado River ("viejo puente sobre el Rio Colorado), allows you to plummet down a 265-foot river gorge before springing back, yo-yo style through the lush, Costa Rica style, tropical canyon. If you aren’t close to this area, there are also good spots in Arenal and La Fortuna that offer equally death-defying thrills.
