We were picked up from our hotel and opted for the zip-lining tour. Although it did not completely deter from the amazing experience, the gear is smelly and obviously worn. I did feel safe in the harness, but the helmet smelled awful and the gloves were gross and filled with holes. You would think that a place that does this... More

The groups are fairly large, but they whisk you through very quickly - maybe too quickly. The gear is smelly, which is probably unavoidable, but the gloves having holes was pretty annoying. The last long zipline is pretty amazing.

Our time in Selvatura Park was awesome. We first rode the 16 ziplines. The staff noticed I had a GoPro with the "Chesty" mount and offered a helmet with a GoPro mount on it, stating that the footage would come out better. The ziplines were awesome and some were incredibly long, especially the last one. We ate lunch on site... More

While in the “Cloud Forest”, took the opportunity to go Ziplining! You can’t go to the rainforest and not see the canopy via zip line: ) We had a large group of about 20-30 people and they got us through very efficiently, though at times too fast. At the beginning, we were able to go zipline to zipline with no... More

Some spectacular zip lines amongst the 17. This unfortunately made the lesser ones seem a bit mundane. The finale of the tarzan swing and the 1km zip line were fantastic. There was a bit too much hanging around between some zips but especially for the bus (over an hour in total). If they could streamline the transport, it would have... More

We cancelled within the required 48-hour window and were promised an 80% refund. Instead of crediting the card we booked with, I had to send checking account numbers and information, and a month later we're still waiting. They say it's in the bank's hands (theirs or mine?), but I'm not holding my breath. I will update this review if I... More

We spent a full day at Selvatura Park, and loved it. We bought a package with ziplining, hanging bridges, lunch, butterflies, reptiles, and the hummingbird garden. We went ziplining first, and it was amazing! We had three kids with us, and they each had a guide with them on the lines, except they let our 8 and 11 year old... More

I drew the short straw & went zip lining with my 13-year-old daughter while my husband took our nine-year-old son on the hanging bridges & into the herpetarium. It was a thrilling experience inside the cloud forest reserve!

The suspension bridges walk is absolutely beautiful and combines the best of hiking and canopy views. The walk is self guided, so you can take as long as you want walking through the silent jungle. The suspension bridges give excellent views of the canopy, without the bother of zipping over the tops. It is possible to be absolutely alone on... More

Even though it was a rainy day, we did the hanging bridges and the zip lining tours. Both were incredible and very well run. We did not see a lot of wildlife, but the hanging bridges offer impressive views and the zip lining was awesome. My daughters ages 10 and 15 loved it; about 15 lines and some are very... More
