Pura Aventura was a great day - kids (7-14) and adults alike did the zip line and had a blast. Felt very safe the whole time. Staff, as one of our friends put it, were "joyful" - the guys were having fun with each other and the guests all along, joking and pranking.

Best: when one of the guides asked if I was having fun and I replied yea - nice - not as exciting as I hoped, he had me zipline tandem to him so he could keep us on course while I rode upside-down. Nice but short (1.5 hrs when 1:1 including bike adjustments etc) trail bike riding. Really lovely staff.

Kids did the zip line and had a great time. Adults did horseback riding and had an equally good time. Highly recommend the adventure. 30 minute ride from Tamarindo. Best road we have been on in 5 days.

We were staying not far from this attraction in Playa Junquillal and so this was a great activity for us without too long of a drive and we could still enjoy a swim at our condo afterwards. The staff was really good, humorous and spoke good English and made this zip line adventure fun. We were a bit disappointed in... More

We got married in Tamarindo and had all of the guests for our small wedding (20) come out to Pura Aventura for zip-lining the day before the wedding. Fun was had by every single member of our group- from the 7 year olds to the 87 year olds. They all loved it! Diego was an excellent guide and all of... More

It was our first time zip lining and we loved it. We were a group of about 12 and we had 6 guides. Some lines were longer than others, and the total was about 2 hours. We had a small mixup about how we were paying, with our hotel having made the reservation, and Diego, the leader, was very professional... More

We did the Canopy Tour with Ariel, Aaron, and Maxi. The guides were very friendly and communicated well in English as well as Spanish. It was simply amazing... The views were spectacular! The Tarzan swing was exhilarating and the entire trip is photographed and videoed by Maxi (In spite of the fact that it was raining during our zip-lining) We... More
