We had a really fun time zip lining 10 cables- they are all different with varying speeds. You get a fruit and juice break up in the treetops which is awesome. The view of the ocean from one of the lines is breathtaking. Our two guides were fun, professional and safe. Try them if you have a few free hours... More

I wasn't even going to bring up the idea of ziplining to my husband, because he has a fear of heights, but he suggested it himself. Wingnuts turned out to be a great place to try ziplining for the first time. It's a family-run operation, where they want the staff to enjoy it as much as the customers. Our guides,... More

We had such a nice experience with Freddy and Rene as our guides. Very safe and professional canopy / zipline tour. It was just a short 10 minute drive from their office in Samara to the first platform. We had concerns with how safe this would be for our kids, couple of 8 - year olds and a 5 -... More

I had a great time here. Although the zip lines aren't earth shattering, or the craziest or highest, it was a lot of fun and a great way to spend a morning! The guides were friendly, knowledgeable, safe, and very helpful. They even took our cameras a few times so they could take pictures of us ziplining, without charging like... More

My family was really looking forward to the zip lining and I decided to join at the last minute. It was a fantastic date. I am terrified of heights but the guides, Jasha and Freddy are incredibly safety conscious and my husband, who tree treks often in Ontario, said these two were far safer than some of the places he's...

I decided to try Wingnuts based on TA reveiws. We were not disappointed. Due to the low, rainy season, our tour was private! Manu and Rene were the perfect guides. My 6 yo son loved it and was not afraid. Our guides made sure we were safe the whole time and taught us about the area, vegetation and animals. We... More

I felt so safe taking a group of teenagers ziplining at wingnuts. The lines were so cool and fast and the guides were very patient with our sometimes not so attentive teenagers. They even organized a snack for us in the middle of the adventure with a view that is absolutely breathtaking. You get to see and hear the ocean... More

We called the night before and they were happy to accommodate us the next afternoon. We also asked about brining our 2.5 year old daughter. They told us no problem the youngest zip liner they have had is 8 months. We arrived they got us suited up and off we went. We were with two other families with kids which... More

Do not miss out on this amazing zip line company!This was my second time zip lining and my nerves were not any less shaky then the first time. Wing Nuts is incredible!! Both instructors were patient and understanding. They truly made the experience of Zip lining in Playa Samara incredible. The views and the fact that you get to take... More

Jascha and Freddie talked me into zip lining. I went along for the ride and was going to wait in the van and read but somehow I ended up in treehouses with harnesses hooked up to me! I was not very good and seemed to overuse the brake on pretty much every run except one.....the guys were good natured about... More
