We participated in this activity for 3 years in Costa Rica. It was a GREAT time. The brothers are very helpful and when we brought a friend that was afraid of heights, they were very careful with her. She is no longer afraid of heights. This, I think, is the best compliment I can give them.

Our family of four (two adults and two kids aged 7 & 9) did this while staying in Playa Samara over the summer. Our youngest was a bit hesitant in that she had never been on a zip line, but she had a blast. For half of our group, it was the first ever time on the zip line. The... More

Manu and Yasha, two brothers running the family business gave us a marvellous tour of the jungle from many different perspectives; we zip-lined close to the dense jungle floor, above the tree tops and even upside down! They were extremely knowledgeable and gave us a greater understanding and appreciation for the nature surrounding Samara all the while zip-lining and having... More

This is an adventure not to miss! Our family of 5 (3 teenagers) really enjoyed doing this! The guides Manu and Yashu were amazing! This family owned and built zip line was first class all the way. The guides, not only made our experience fun and entertaining, they are the people that actually built the zip tour and run the... More

We did this activity with our 2 children (6 and 8) and we all enjoyed it. Absolutely safe and accessible for young kids. We enjoyed fabulous view of the jungle and the ocean. The guides are very friendly and professional. They carried a heavy bag with them to offer us the most fabulous snack in the world: up in a... More

Our family of 5, including kids ages 11, 8, and almost 4 all had a terrific time doing this. The guides are very careful, positive, and fun. You are always attached to something and the experience of flying through the trees is not to be missed. We weren't worried about our youngest, they had a special small harness for her... More

Very safe and fun for the whole family. 10 different zip lines to go through. Our guides were excellent. They took the time to point out different plants and wildlife. It was nice to sit up in the trees and have a little picnic too.

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
