It is a really great experience.

My husband and I had a blast on the zip lines. The employees were informative and entertaining. We caught a glimpse of Arenal.

The staff was entertaining and SAFE, the gentlemen there were amazing. I loved zooming over the canopies at top speeds and having a great experience. My husband and I did the course - we have done a few other canopy tours and this was no comparison! By far the longest and fastest course I have ever zipped. Edgar and Jonathan... More

When the feet give out, need to relax get the sky trek for a peaceful trek above the canopy. The veiw is beautiful, after a rain the smeals are refreshing. This is something all ages can do.

An hour to 90 minutes roaming about the rain forest over high bridges, very nice. Would be fantastic in the dry season, but was unsurprisingly wet during green

My husband, daughter, and I recently came here on a tour of Costa Rica. Zip Lining was the only part of the trip that we were very apprehensive about. We practiced on a low level line first, then went up on the Sky Tram and had hot chocolate at the top! Then climbed a tower to get to the first... More

A fantastic, beautiful ziplining experience! Professional and friendly staff and incredible views of the cloud forest and ocean. It is definitely chilly so wear layers.

I really afraid of heights but the staff was really friendly and clearly trained very well. If your unsure if you want to do the zip lining you can do the practice run and even go up to the top of the hill you can turn back if you need to but you should definitely do it:)

First time ziplining for our family of four (kids 16 and 13). I have to admit that I had zero interest in ziplining, but wanted the kids to have the experience. I chose Sky Trek after reading many reviews and learning about their braking system. At other places, riders have to self-brake by squeezing the line with their (gloved) hand).... More
