Pura Vida Adventures’ Paradise Canyon canyoneering trip was recently listed as one of the Top 50 best Summer Weekend Adventures by National Geographic Online.  Nat Geo described the trip and recommended Pura Vida Adventures to those thrill seekers looking to experience Paradise Canyon for themselves.  This is the second time that National Geographic has featured Pura Vida Adventures canyoneering programs.  In the fall of 2009 Pura Vida’s Big Bradley adventure canyoneering program was highlighted in Nation Geographic magazine.
