First time zip lining experience....we took our 3 boys ages 10, 7, and 4 (yes FOUR!). Ecoglide was absolutely amazing! We all felt completely safe at all times. This outfit uses the double cable system for added security. All of the guides were extremely nice and fun. They attached our four year old to a guide on each cable and... More

Great ziplines. Even better guides. Safety came first, closely followed by fun. I've been on 4 different ziplines around the world, and felt the safest with this operation. The lines weren't particularly high (like in Monteverde), but they were good. The tarzan swing was great fun, and they allowed us to go several times. Clearly the guides enjoy their work,... More

This was our first time doing ziplining, and it worked well for all of us, including a 6 year old, taken down with a guide. Beautiful countryside, lush jungle, right under the volcano. My only complaint would be that they should make a little more effort to keep family groups together while younger kids are being taken ahead with guides.

This place is apparently a little more "hands on" than Sky Trek... literally. You use one well-protected hand on the cable to slow down! Great fun for all of us and the Tarzan Swing was a huge hit with the kids (I'm still tyring to find my self-esteem after screaming like a little girl). Something like a dozen different cables,...

It is great for little kids, not many places are accepting kids below 8 and our 6 years old was very disappointed, but here she had so much fun. "The best day ever".

this place is a great deal, with six ziplines, one of which is a kilometer long, and beautiful scenery.

Ecoglide is the place to go for an amazing zip line adventure. This is a very professionally run attraction and there are some that are not in the area. My family with 2 kids, 11 and 8 and my mother, 71, all had the best time on the zip line. There are 12 lines and 14 plateforms that take you... More

A very well run, friendly and safe operation. We have 3 young children (one a 5 year old) and the guides helped them along the way and doubled up on the faster cables, or when they lost their confidence a bit. The views are fantastic, although the speed gives you little chance to enjoy them.

We had a lot of fun and like it was dual cables for safety. There were many cables and some were 300-400 meters long. The guides did make us feel rushed and couldn't enjoy the view as much. The worst part was when my 13 year-old son was ready to go down the longest cable and a guide hooked on... More

What a bonding adventure for a family of 4 w/ 2 adreneline seeking boys (ages 12 1nd 15)! Everyone can do this and the staff makes it very safe! There are multiple zip lines leading all the way down the volcano after they drive you up in an open air truck. Be sure to look around at the views and... More
