The actual zip line aspect of this park was great. The guides were very knowledgeable and were very safety oriented. The views were incredible from some of the lines. In addition to the zip line they had a walk through garden and a herp collection. They had several species of snakes inadequate enclosures. Some species of snakes, especially young ones,... More

We loved the whole adventure. From start to finish, this was wonderful. The guides were very efficient getting our gear on properly. The orientation was a confidence builder for us that had never zipped. The tram ride up the mountain was beautiful along with informative with the guide. We saw birds and plants of the rainforest, but no animals. There... More

This was one of the most exciting experiences of my life! The tram to the top of the mountain was breathtaking and allowed time for our guide to point out plants, animals and birds native to the rain forest. We zip lined over a mile back to the base of the moutain, then walked through an eco-tourism area where we... More

The Tranopy Tour (Tram and zip lining) with Rain Forest Adventures was a totally awesome tour which I cannot wait to do again! After going through a safety drill and receiving a helmet and gloves, we boarded a tram through the rainforest which took us to an elevation of more than 1000 feet. That portion was nice and tranquil but... More

We visited Rainforest Adventures both Pacific (Jaco) and Eastern (San Jose) and both visits were great! We were awed by how much the staff truly care about the environment they work in. For most of them, their work is not a 'job' but something they love. It was slow season when we visited, but both parks were willing to accommodate... More

Me, my 16 year old and 7 year old went on the tram tour. It was ok, but long and boring, saw more of the same that we had seen in Costa Rica, and only saw one toucan, no other animals. It was interesting but I was ready to get off half way through. My 12 year old and husband... More

We visited the rain forest aerial trams in Costa Rica, and came away with a new appreciation of the vanishing, but vastly important rain forests of our world. The ecosystem there was amazing, and the views from the trams were educational. Where else can you see an almost primeval setting where nature still rules and man is but an intruder?

The tram ride let you see all heights of the rainforest. Viewing the floor and the canopy was awesome. The animal sounds were able to hear in the quietness.
