The tour guide was great and the experience left us full of adrenaline! The site of the rain forest is a memory I will take with me. The tour guide was fun and explained how to position our body and taught us what to do just in case we didn't make it all the way down the line.

What a rush! Ziplining through the jungle was an incredible experience. Our guides were friendly and helpful, the views were amazing and we found the price reasonable. We also spent the $42 to rent a go-pro which we were happy we did.

Rather than taking the 1.5 mile walk to the lake, go for this. You will get a good chance of looking at the lake in between the rides. There are Total of 8 lines. Friendly staff. Have your food and booze somewhere else, overpriced and nothing memorable. We combined this activity with Lafortuna waterfall, they are both on 2 different... More

This was our fourth activity (white water rafting, volcano hike and hot springs, and vendado cave tour) and by far the best. Up, up, up in the forest canopy, then a FAST zip down via 6 long zipli es. Amazing views, exhilarating speed, and so much fun. We did have rain, which can be worrisome if you wear contact lenses... More

We did the sky tram on last minute whim when we arrived in Moneteverde. SO glad we stopped to check it out. The staff were super friendly, and the guides were great! We had fantastic weather. We had excellent views of Arenal Volcano, Arenal Lake, and beyond. I highly recomend this to any one!!

Excellent and fun guides took us on the ride of our lives. We had so much fun zip lining. The views were fabulous, especially of the volcano. Well worth the money and we would do it again and again!

I am afraid of heights and will probably never do this again, but they were very good and I felt the equipment was high quality. This is the place to do zip lining. 8 different lines!

8 stations to zip line. Very good guides. Excellent scenery. If you are afraid of heights dont go here. Some llines were over 600 ft above the rainforest. Could see Arenal volcano, Arenal lake and most of the surrounding areas. Best tour guides were Ignacio and (I;m so sorry I forgot the other man's name)
