Alejandro was our guide and he was funny, informative, and skilled! This was easily one of the best tours I took in Costa Rica! So much fun! Highly recommended!

My friend and I recently visited Costa Rica and had heard that the zip lining in the Arenal area was the best. This canopy tour did not disappoint. The guides were professional, hilarious and definitely made the trip 10 times better. It was safe and awesome. I would recommend this canopy tour to anyone considering it!

Sky trek was very professional and the guides were awesome! One of the guides even had to go out and bring one of the people in our group back in! The views were awesome and I'm do happy I did it! One more item checked off the bucket list!!

My friends and I did the Sky Trek (hanging bridges), Sky Tram, and Sky Tour (zip lines) in September 2014. We were all pleasantly surprised at the quality of the attractions. The bridges, tram, and zip lines are all well-engineered, well-constructed, and well-maintained. We felt very safe at every turn. Since we weren't worried about safety, we could focus on... More

My entire party had signed up for this tour - we all did the walk and three of us then did the actual zip line. We did quite a few walks in Costa Rica but this was one of my favourites because of the ~10 hanging bridges you have to cross along the way. Unfortunately during my time there we... More

We had so much fun! We rode the tram up to the mountain for the zip line. Our guides Luis P and Ignacio were great! They were very informative and pointed out the wildlife as we were going up. We recommend this company for ziplining. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I enjoyed the spectacular views of the volcano and Lake Arenal from both the Tram and the Zip line and platforms. The staff were excellent. Safety and fun went hand in hand. I especially appreciated the braking system which was far superior to the one I had done 6 years ago in Mexico. Would do it again... More

This is a must do for anyone that likes adventure and speed!! The best zip line anywhere and the longest, highest and fastest!! Forget brakes, just hand on and enjoy the ride! Our guides made it fun and kept up safe at the same time.

Our guide was very cool and had a lot of knowledge about the history and animals and foliage around the area. He was a good sport with taking pictures too. The only negative was that it was cloudy and we couldn't see the top of the volcano. I would definitely do this one again.
