The Manuel Antonio area has many zip lining companies to choose from and while Canopy Safari doesn't have the longest or fastest lines, I am SO GLAD we chose this company! This is the company to choose if you want to travel between trees through the canopy, not high up above it. This is the company to choose if you... More

This was such a thrilling adventure for our entire large group. Our guides were funny, witty and strong. They spoke fluent English. Although, they scared the pants off of us, we truly enjoyed them. We ziplined through the trees in the jungle, all the while, it poured torrential rain on us. This adventure was so surreal. It could not compare... More

We had a wonderful time flying like monkeys through the trees in Costa Rica with the fun guides at Canopy Safari. My daughter who was not quite sure about the whole experience can't wait to go back! The guides made us feel comfortable and completely safe all the while joking with us and having fun. Great time had by all... More

I just read the other positive reviews and I would echo them all! Great fun! Very well organized, fun and safe. Safety is high priority to the company. What I did not see mentioned was the informative and beautiful ride up to the site. It took about 20 min or so and Diego our guide was explaining and pointing out... More

Our guides Andreas and Heinner were amazing! They took us on an beautiful but short hike pointing out cinnamon trees, vanilla, ginger, citronella trees and all the other interesting flora and fauna on the way to the top zip line platform. It was an easy walk that our 9 year old did easily. The zip lining was awesome and we... More

Our family of three had an awesome zipline experience with Canopy Safari. Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and extremely safety conscious. From pick up to drop off, the experience was well organized, including a great breakfast, awesome zipline experience with 10 ziplines, 2 rapels and 1 tarzan swing - starting with a gentle hike up after the first zipline to...

From what I've heard, this is the best zip lining tour in the area. I would imagine that this is a true statement (though this is the only one I've tried). Not only do you zip line through the canopy, but you also get to do a Tarzan-like swing along the tree tops as well as an almost free-fall repel... More

We had planned on going with a different company before we got down here, but met Diego (the owner) in the pool at our villa. We were really impressed with him and decided to give them a shot!

I will not tell a lie, I was terrified. Not so much afraid of heights but just the thought of being on a wire scared me. The bus ride is long and bumpy and it starts with you having to get off the bus at the office and filling out forms . Once you get up the mountain (we left... More
