We went ziplining and it was an amazing experience. The guides were knowledgeable, funny and very friendly. They ensured that we felt comfortable and really made the experience! The views are fantastic and with about 10 lines, a free fall jump (optional), a Tarzan swing (also optional), and a photographer, the excursion is a great deal. I felt safe (a... More

Mike and Diego made our zipline canopy tour a fun and fascinating experience. Using our camera, Mike captured the thrill of our flying through the jungle and both guides taught us about the Costa Rican jungle as we walked along the trails - pointing out the walking tree, the water vine, the irridescent dart frog, the sound of the toucans....

Mike and the guys at La Selvita de Costa Rica gave our group a great experience. We set up our canopy zip-line tour with La Posada Jungle Hotel and enjoyed our trip from Manual Antonio and our home made breakfast before our tour. We all enjoyed the experience and the awesome views from the lines and the towers. The swim... More

What an amazing day. Zip lining was even more exhilarating, fun, and intense than I'd imagined. Gorgeous setting, perfect guides. Made me feel comfortable and safe. Great hike, fantastic waterfall swim at the end. Easily worth the cost. Trip to Costa Rica would not be the same without this.

I can't say enough about this tour!! First, the guides are great! Thanks Kindle and Snake Man for a great day!! The zip lines are fabulous and the views are terrific. The water fall at the end of this tour is awesome. I have never felt colder water but it was so refreshing after being in the jungle. The breakfast... More

Book at canopy zip-line tour via La Posada hotel. The pick-up time was 9.50am but the driver arrived half an hour late. We were supposed to pick-up another group but they had cancelled so I got to go on the tour by myself. The drive from Manuel Antonio was approx. 1 hour. The company has a nice cottage type of...

My friends and I agree that the ziplining tour was the best excursion we did during our vacation. The guides were great. They were very efficient in getting us set up and ready to go while engaging us in conversation the whole time. They made a lot of jokes and kept it safe and fun for us. You can tell... More

The ATV and zipline combo tour was absolutely amazing. The 1hr quad ride thru fields, forests, jungle, rivers etc to the zipline was a blast! A full meal awaited us at the zipline. The zipline was awesome as were all the staff who helped our group which included 5 children aged 4-12. Then another 1hr quad ride back. We were... More

I was visiting La Selvita with an educational travel group and found the staff of La Selvita very professional and friendly. I loved my first zipline experience so much, I made a video from it. http://www.youtube.com/reinventure#p/a/u/2/XBIea1Nvz24 It probably explains the experience better than I can in words.
