It was established in 1998 by a Forest Engineer on a private reserve of over 400 acres. Placed in the middle of a Cloud Forest, at about 7,000 ft above sea level, there are a total of 13 platforms and 8 cables crisscrossing a river while traveling on a protected biological corridor. Starting with easy cables and leaving the best for the end, a 600 ft. run over an amazing waterfall. Although the cables are unforgettable, the adventure is also about the forest, the guides love to share their knowledge of this unique environment with you on a nature walk that is worth the day trip by itself. Suitable for all ages, the youngest adventurer to do this ride was no more than 2 years old and the oldest one yet, 88 springs. Come fly through the cloud forest on this unforgettable adventure right in the Central Valley!!!! « less

Excellent and knowledgeable staff. We had 4 kids in our group of 8. 2 kids were under 5 years of age and the guides were very helpful even did 3 of the lines with the kids.

We really enjoyed this canopy tour! We had great guides (Rio and Geoffrey - request them!) who were very approachable, knowledgeable and funny :) The cloud forest was great and you can go for walks and mountain bike as well. I can't wait to go again!

The place is amazing, the people are are great and amazing themselves!! They speak fluent english and they make sure you are comfortable in every way. They are animal lovers and you will no doubt enjoy every minute of the zip lining. The views and the tour will speak for its own. I encourage everyone to go to them. Im... More

There were 8 of us and every one of us loved the tour and zipline. The staff were so happy to work with us and they were genuinely fun to have as guides. I loved that there was a mini history lesson about the area and what goals they had for the property (reforestation). It's cool that the guides knew... More

Nice people, fun zip lining about an hour from San Jose. We would definitely do it again. One of the members of our party rented a car and speaks fluent Spanish. We stopped all along the way to make sure we were going in the right direction to the right place and we were able to find it. We did... More

I loved this experience. I took my 10 year old for her birthday, it was a surprise and she was delighted. Our 6 year old was with us and she was very confident and not scared to do it. The guides are very good and explain a lot about the forest. The kids where attached like a train together with... More

On our last day in Costa Rica, we made arrangements with Ingrid, the owner, to do their canopy tour. They picked us up at our hotel near the San Jose Airport and within just a 30 minute drive, we were at their location. They are on the Heredia Mountain in the cloud forest. This canopy tour is so much more... More

Its a really good canopy if you like the rainforest. It has 8 platforms with the last ones being the scariest. The guides are really nice. The first 3 zips are calm but it gets faster.Franco and Jeffrey rocked and the cute extra kids made the ride even more fun!

This was my second time doing a canopy tour (my first was in Panama earlier this year). The setting at Canopy Adventure Barva Volcano is absolutely beautiful. The staff is exceptional. They made sure that we knew what to do and how to do it safely. We also learned about the cloud forest and the environment. I am so happy... More

Safety excellent.The zips between the trees are short. Other than tress nothing to view in canopy. DVD of of you on your zips is mostly canned shots of mushrooms, foliage etc: recommend do not buy. If there is an alternative zip line experience try the alternative before CaNoPy Adventure monte de barva,

Thank you for your review. We are very proud to hear that our safety is excellent, this is something we make a priority on all our trips. In regards with the distance of the lines between trees, we start with slow and short lines (the first one is about 60 ft. long) so people that are doing it for the... More
