Manu and Rene treated us to a great day zipping through the trees high above Playa Samara! We were the last tour of the day so we had the guides to ourselves. Mid-way through we enjoyed fresh fruit, juice, and organic cookies up in the trees with the monkeys. Both guides were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They... More

We went to Costa Rica with our two adult children (27yrs and 23 yrs) to have not just a family vacation ( have done the all inclusive and while good we wanted something different) but an experience. Despite my severe fear of heights I decided it would be quite an experience to zip line through the jungle as a family... More

This is only our second time ziplining, so we don't have much to compare to. This was an easy course, with some uphill walking. The views were nice, and the included snack was great; fresh fruit and organic cookies. The safety procedures concerned us because our first experience was all about guides who put safety first while still interacting with... More

We were worried if our kids would enjoy zip lining as they seemed anxious when we talked about it prior to our trip. Joshua and Freddy were great with the kids and they had a great time! The lines are setup in a progressive way which allowed the kids to enjoy it more and more without being fearful.

This tour was AWESOME!!! And I say that as a person with a serious fear of heights. Our guides, Manu and Freddy, were phenomenal. My group of 5 plus 4 others were on this tour. Two of us had a fear of heights and one of us didn't seem to understand how to use the brake system correctly to make... More

We suggest this tour to all of our friends, family, and customers. The tour guides are all wonderful, bilingual, and fun! They make sure everyone is comfortable and having a great time. They are knowledgeable about the local plants and animals and will keep you laughing throughout your zip-lining experience!

Freddy and Manu are great to work with. They make sure to take any anxiety out of whatever you are going through at the time. It is a great experience. Wing Nuts is an incredible find. If you want to experience the view of a Howler Monkey.... here is your chance. We loved it!!!

What a rush! We had such a great time zip-lining with our 2 amazing tour guides! This tour had it all - 10 cables, views of the ocean, upside down zip-lining, and rappelling at the end! We also took a nice break in the middle with local fresh fruit!
