An exciting canopy zip line tour with ten zip lines, two rapel limes, a suspension bridge and a tarzan swing. We also have a butterfly garden, serpentarium, tilapia fishing ponds, a caimen lagoon, walking trails and a beautiful restaurant where we serve buffet style meals. We were the first canopy tour in the southern area of costa rica and we are still setting the standards for the safest, the best and the most exciting canopy tour in costa rica. Since 1997 we have been taking our guests out into the jungle and providing them with an unforgettable experince that they will always remember. Come and have the experience of a lifetime with us « less

We booked the Canopy Safari Tour at the suggestion of Michael at the front desk of the Hotel Parador in Manuel Antonio. We had no idea how much we would get for our money! Andreas and Victor picked us up and entertained us the whole 40 minutes drove to their establishment in the canopy. We learned quite a bit about... More

We did the zip line with our 8 and 10 year old this week and had a blast. The staff was great and very serious about safety. There were two guides for each subgroup of about 8 people. One guy hooks you up with two separate things, and the guy on the other side helps catch you and unhook you,... More

My family of 10, ranging in age from 5 to 70, went on the Canopy Safari tour and loved it. They picked us up from our hotel and drove us to their site, fed us a Tico breakfast, and then suited us up with harnesses and helmets. The hike up to the start of the tour required a little bit... More

These guys run a very safe, fun, efficient zip lining operation. They are very careful but still create a fun environment and worked very well with the kids on our tour.

We had so many wonderful experiences during our week in Manuel Antonio, but our Canopy Safari tour was definitely one of the highlights. Our family of four (including two kids aged 17 and 13) loved every minute of the excursion. We enjoyed the drive through the palm plantation (including the wooden bridge and the farmer herding his cows) to their... More

Very well run, professional trip. Our kids (4&7) had so much fun doing the zipline's and repelling. These guys do a good job with safety as you are always double clipped to the ziplines or single clipped to the trees. Loved every part of the trip and the excellent typical Costa Rican lunch after was and added awesome bonus. I... More

If you only visiting one area in Costa Rica, then go ahead and do this. If you are going to the La Fortuna / Arenal area then DON'T DO THIS TOUR!!! In Arenal there are several companies available and the zip lines are not a 40 minute drive way. The drive to the Canopy Safari zip lines was 40 minutes... More

Very through and safety conscious. Staff is fun-loving but attentive to detail. Work well with children. Interesting ride up to the forest site. Fine lunch of arroz con pollo with beans. Interesting assortment of butterflies and snakes in adjacent terrarium. Allow 4-5 hours with transportation

We were on a family vacation in Costa Rica in late March 2014, staying in the Manuel Antonio area. We wanted to do a ziplining adventure, and our hotel recommended Canopy Safari. We were not disappointed. Our family had done ziplining before (in Hawaii) but we all agreed that Canopy Safari was a superior experience. They picked us up at... More
