I had read reviews for Pura Aventura, and our family of four planned to do a zip line canopy tour while in the Tamarindo area, but we didn't book in advance. During our flight to Costa Rica, I learned that the person sitting next to me spends quite a bit of time in the Tamarindo area, and he HIGHLY recommended... More

The zip lines were incredibly fun as were the guides! Our kids 9 & 11 were nervous at the first line, but the guides made them feel comfortable and took them along for the ride. After that they loved it and even went on a few by themselves. It was exhilarating and the guides made it a blast. They were... More

We went today with my two youngest daughters. The staff treated them very well, allowing them to build up their courage to go on the zip lines by themselves. The lines are excellent, and the guides are fun, safe, and enjoy to tease. Worthwhile just forgetting your camera, and pay the $20 for their picture CD disc. The pictures and... More

The Zip tour at Pura Aventura was a great experience! We were picke dup in an air-conditioned van from our condo in Tamarindo and the 5 of us had a private tour with 4 of the Pura Aventura staff. The guides were tons of fun, and definitely enhanced the experience. The zip tour has beautiful vistas, is exciting and safe!... More

The Pura Aventura zip line was one of the highlights of our trip. We were two families of four with children aged 6 and 9. My 6 year old is not the most adventurous - last year at Disney she didn't want to ride Goofy's Barnstorm Adventure. But she didn't want to miss out on the zip lines and by... More

First, Paola was amazing in working with us, responding to email questions about whether our young daughter could participate, & rescheduling us when she got sick the day before our scheduled day. We had a wonderful morning horseback riding, seeing the howler monkeys, despite the fact that some in our group got sore butts! The horses were very easy-going. We... More

We were picked up in an air-conditioned van and driven by a lovely woman named Iliana about 45 minutes to the Hacienda La Norma. We had a great time with Jexi, Amed, & Bayron who were playful & silly and totally safe. Amed took great pictures & videos and the $20 DVD was awesome! Would highly recommend these guys for... More
