Very fun and well done zip line tour. Our three kids (ages 8-10) loved it. Our guides, Manu and Yasha were very helpful and had a nice way with the kids. It was very peaceful and cool up in the trees and was a great break from all the beach activities in Samara. We have done other zip line tours... More

Wonderful experience. The guys at this place were friendly, knowledgeable and very personable. They picked me up in Samara and we drove to their office, where everyone received safety instructions. There were 11 separate runs through the trees. This was my first time ziplining and it was a blast! Halfway through the runs we stopped for a treetop break of... More

We ( my wife and I , and 17 yr old daughter ) enjoyed this tour very much. It was the first time ziplining for my wife and she was a little nervous about the heights, but our guides,Jascha( sp?) and Freddie were very patient and professional with a good sense of humor and I think eveyone in our group...

This is our 4th time to Costa Rica and our 4th time zip-lining within. Our experience at Wingnuts was so much fun. Our children are ages 7 and 9 and they had a blast. I think they found this to be one of the top 3 activities we experienced this trip. The guides are professional, comforting yet have a fantastic... More

Our party of six - ages 7 to 64 - had an adventure we will never forget. Zip-lining through the canopy near Samara, Costa Rica. Very professional couple of guys, Rene and Manu, the young owner and founder of the company. Scary sometimes, but never more than we could handle. Half way through our 3 hours together we were drinking... More

Could not have been better! Manu and Renay made us feel very safe and secure. The guys were very professional but fun so lots of laughs were had by all. Overall it was a great experience. Manu went above and beyond when one of the girls left her glasses behind in the taxi. He hunted them down and had them... More

We just returned from a week in Samara. In planning the trip, ziplining was on the top of must do activities for everyone in the family. 8 of us enjoyed our adventure with wingnuts- ages 9-44. Freddy and Renee were awesome! It was a pleasure getting to know them during our adventure. We felt safe the entire time. On of... More

I am really afraid of heights, but friends and family encouraged me to try ziplining while on vacation in Costa Rica. I am so glad that I did and that our family zipped with Wingnuts. Manu and Yasha made me feel so comfortable and confident right from the first platform. They were very professional and careful, repeating instructions for each... More
