The most extreme you will find is water rafting and Canopy Zip lines, also ATV and things like that. If you are driving from San Jose you could also stop at which is a Nature and Adventure Park located halfway on the way to Manuel Antonio.
Hey Bianca, Well my advice to you, is to get there, to Manuel Antonio either if you stay in a hotel or a hostel, you're gonna be able to book from Canopy to bungee jumping, to 4x4 adventures. So take the bus from Coca Coca bus station, and let the adventure begin, is cheap, easy and in just 4 hours you'll get there, any other question, i'll be more than happy to help you.
cheers.

In Costa Rica I do mainly adventure trips, and I can tell you anywhere you go you can find something adventurous to do. White water rafting on the pacific or caribbean sides, zip lining everywhere and specially I would recommend you two of the most popular which are selvatura park in monteverde and zip line in pozo azul, at the latest you can also arrange rapelling, horseback riding and white water rafting and even camping.

It depends on the area you go the activities you can find, let me know if I can help you, I travel all year round around the country with camping groups and adventure people!!!
Have you tried sea kayak surfing on Playa Espadilla Norte, Manuel Antonio? There is also a river operator() that will put you on a raft on the beach and your group has to paddle against the breaking waves. Now that is a bit extreme and radical, wouldn't you say?
There are other options besides zip-line, rafting... A good example is a longer adventure, a challange, like a longer excurtion where every day you will move from one adventure to another, in the Osa Peninsula i would recomend 2 adventures the first is a journey around Golfo Dulce (from 3 to 6 days)or the Corcovado National Park (3-5 days)
