We had a great time doing the zip lines and walking through the canopy (hanging bridges tour). It's such a lush place. I feel that it was worth the trip - just know that it's going to take some time to get there. Up and up and up the mountains. The business is really well organized. The park's shuttle complimentary... More

We did the hanging bridges and zip-line tours at Selvatura Park. The park was lush, green and beautiful when we visited in April/2014. They offer a shuttle bus to/from the hotel, which was very convenient Zip-Line: I would definitely recommend the zip-line tour it’s was quite a thrilling experience for me! I was a little scared at first, I felt... More

The zip line tour (we also included the 'superman' option) is really cool. Not exactly an adrenalin thing like a death ride (except for the optional tarzan swing), rather an active and adventurous way of seeing the rainforest. Staff are quite helpful, although is sometimes looks a bit like routine to them.

What a wonderful, huge park. First, we visited the humming bird area, which offers amazing photo ops. Then we moved over to the Zip Line course, which consists of 18 total towers, including #17 which is a Tarzan Swing. The staff was skilled and patient and safety-minded. They navigated us through the 18 stages fast and without problems. The final... More

The hanging bridges at Selvatura Park were amazing! We also visited their humming bird exhibit and loved it! 2 in our party went back to zip-line there as well. We enjoyed all of it!!

We were very pleased with the quality and professionalism of the staff. The zip lines are awesome and tarzan rope at the end is fun too. We had kids 5-8 in our group and guides did a great job in taking care of them as well as making sure they stay calm and enthusiastic. Would love to go again. Worth... More

Really enjoyed the zip line aspect of this excursion. The guide did not seem to be enjoying anything. One thing to realize in Costa Rica is that nothing is on time or done quickly. The guide were not friendly, did not smile or encourage you. We were not looking to be coddled like children, but were expecting general pleasantness from... More

My husband and I have done other canopy tours and we both agree that the Zipline at Selvatura Park is THE BEST! Our 8 year old daughter also loved the Zipline and was able to go on some lines by herself. There's a lot of walking and it could be challenging for some as the walk is uphill. However, it's... More

We were slow. We were quiet. We walked the hanging bridges like the seasoned animal-watchers we are, and yet saw nothing. The noise from the ziplines ruined it for me - I could do the same hike in my hotel's backyard. The riders scream and the ziplines whistle, and tour groups tromping across the bridges were loud and obnoxious. This... More

Be sure to pay the extra $10 to be Superman. It’s the final zip and is 1 km in length. You will be flying over the rain forest like Superman with an incredible view! I’ve never had this experience at other ziplining places The Tarzan swing is a lot of fun. Again, it is new to me. The zips before... More
