As part of the surf package I signed up for this week through costa rica surf adventures, I was given several options of extra curricular activities to choose from when we weren't surfing. I chose the canopy zip line tour. The driver picked me up at the hotel at the time they said they would. We picked up a few... More

We chose zipling and horseback riding/mountain biking for certain members of the family. The zipling experience was great. They were very attentive and patient with the younger members of the family. They provided basic instructions which we all were able to follow without any problems. Horseback riding/Mountain biking. The mountain biking excursion was a great workout. We saw some animals...

Can't say enough about this trip! If you think the cost seems high you have never been zip lining on an average company... The Equipment Pura Adventure uses is SUPERB. All the cables are doubled up and you are attached via two pulleys and two harnesses... The guides are amazing and fun, the views spectacular and there are 11 different... More

In the morning we went horseback riding and in the afternoon zip lining. The ride was good, but know that it isn't a typical nose to tail horseback ride. The terrain was far from flat, culminating in a fantastic view. The down side is that we were saddle sore for the rest of the trip. The zip line was awesome,... More

My wife and I joined a mixed group of people for zip lining. The staff was very friendly and professional. Safety was never a problem and everything was explained fully in English. A few people in the group were nervous and the guides went tandem with them until they felt more comfortable. It was very reasonably priced and very fun.

So this place is exceptional. Safe & fun for all the family whatever the age, and they are real professionals with a Service bent. The coffee and food is excellent if you need a snack. They take you out to the tree tops on a 15 min truck ride. Safety brief you and then in a very organised fashion help... More

Diego and his team are amazing. Not only are the zip lines fun and exciting,the staff is entertaining and very interactive with everyone. It is apparent they enjoy their jobs and want to be there. As well, safety is a priority. I am not comfortable with heights, but their double cables and procedures are very reassuring and let me forget... More

She was a little bummed but then they let her go upside down! When it started to rain, they kept the energy up but as soon as thunder started,... More

The zip line is awesome and beautiful views. Diego is great and has a wonderful crew. They make the whole experience easy and fun. They work with everyone. We had a big group and they handled everyone beautifully. There are eleven runs. I still hope they will find my camera which is at the bottom of the first run.

During a team building event in Costa Rica, we went to Pura Aventura. Like many others in the group, this was my first zip lining experience and I was a bit nervous. The crew, and fellow colleagues were very supportive and before I knew it, the first zip was over and I couldn't wait for more! If you're in the... More
