These guys are running a solid family business. We had a group with kids ages 4-10, and everyone LOVED it after the first run. It's done very safely, and we were given tips about the land, trees, seasons as we went along. Very interesting

While visiting Samara for a week with another family we took a canopy tour with Wing-Nuts. Four adults, five kids and every single person had a great time. Manu and Renee were the best guides. This was not just about the zip-lining. We learned about local wildlife, the forest and the area in general. Have you ever fed a Pizote... More

Manu and Roberto took GREAT care of us! This is a family run organization on their property and they take great care and pride in what they do. We felt very safe and got lots of instruction. They take a break mid way and give you fruit, juice and snacks with a beautiful view over the ocean. There is a... More

We had a great experience at Wing Nuts! We had 6 people, including 4 children in our group. The guides did a wonderful job with the kids, encouraging them and coaxing our reluctant child who was very fearful. We were able to all zip, including our 1 year old. (He was strapped to Daddy.) We all felt very safe and... More

Wingnuts Canopy Tour did such a wonderful job! We have two box (5 and 8) that were able to zip line by themselves. The staff talked about every piece of equipment we wore, and were very focused on safety. We enjoyed refreshing beverages and snacks up in the tree. The guides stayed with us the entire time, and we had... More

Our whole family had so much fun! Our kids were 7, 9 and 11 thoroughly enjoyed their zip lining experience. My husband and I had just as much fun as the kids. We felt that the ziplines were extremely safe, and that the guides - took safety very seriously. We did 10 ziplines, with a snack up in the trees... More

I have to admit, I didn't sleep at all the night before our zip-lining adventure. I was terrified! Manu & his brother calmed my fears with their light hearted bantering and laid back demeanor as soon as I entered the office. When we got to the first platform I wasn't sure I was going to be able to make myself... More

I think there were 10 ziplines, and you go in small groups, lunch served at the tree tops, the guides are not only cute as heck, but very informative, and speak very good English. Strongly recommend this tour.

We had originally planned to zipline in Arenal, but it was very wet and dreary, so we took the opportunity to try Wingnuts while we were in Playa Samara instead. We were so glad we did. The weather was fantastic, visibility was perfect, and it was relatively cool at 9 a.m. in the forest above the beach. Our family of... More
