Very professional staff at Zoar Outdoor. Every staff person greeted us, made us feel welcome, asked if we needed anything. They were very helpful and took good care of all the guests. Our raft guide was very professional, highly qualified and informative about the river. Wear nylon clothes (not cotton) because you do get wet. Lunch was served in a... More

Had an amazing time! Our zip instructors Alex and Ezra were the BEST! Kept me entertained the whole time and I am not easily amused. Great atmosphere, views of the landscape/scenery were breath taking and of course zipping was outstanding with a very creative course. We will without a doubt do it again next year plus try some other fun... More

Doing a canopy zip line was on my bucket list but Zoar took care of that. Wonderful experience. Staff was friendly and very helpful as our group was mixed ages and experiences. I was very impressed that they took us on a practice run to see how everything/everyone worked. An action DVD was available for purchase at the end(reasonable cost)... More

This was my third zip line trip (first two in Costa Rica) and these guys are better. The fifteen stage 3 hour zip was fantastic. Nice trip through the woods and great views The crew of Wayne and Alex were knowledgable, experienced and personable. They paid attention to detail and identified individual concerns and addressed them as needed. Conducted a... More

I went rafting with several rafters. Some were quite experienced. I was not. Wel, water was released up river and it was frightening. Much more intense a ride as expected. Several people fell out of the boat, and that was during the Rapids. Barely made it ashore.

Did the tour kayaking. Had a great time and met some great people. It was worth the time and money. Half way through they give you a little snack to keep you going.

Took two teenage boys on the zip line canopy tour and we all had the time of our lives. These boys have ridden numerous white-knuckle roller coasters, but they had a blast zip lining from tree to tree. The 11 zip lines run from tree to tree and there are also sky bridges. They get progressively longer and more hair-raising,... More
