A 90 minute ride to Rincon de la Viejas provides an all-in-one adventure. Start with a 45 minute horseback with vistas of the volcano and as far as Nicaragua, The a steam bath, followed by an optional mud-bath and hot springs dip. Next up- a scary water tubing run(or two), lunch and the last fun is an 11 platform zip... More

My wife and I zip-lined with this company last week and it was outstanding. The crew is great and their attention to detail and safety is commendable. They noticed the littlest things, like proper hand placement, to ensure all riders were safe. Our group ranged in age from 10-65 and everyone had a blast. The crew was a lot of... More

We had a group of 4 (one adult, 3 teens). We all had a great time! It seems to be a pretty good value for the money. The staff was friendly and helpful. A lot of cables to do. Most of them are long, a few are short. Our only complaint is that the group was so large, there was... More

The team that runs this outfit are great! We took our 5-year old for zip lining and they made us feel at ease. She tandem zip lined with a guide and she was always one of the first to go. My only critique is we were a huge group of folks. Not sure if that's the norm but there was... More

So much fun! Diego and his staff are awesome. They are patient and very thorough in "pre-flight" instructions to insure your safety. There are plenty of guides during the tour to help if you happen to get stuck, although that was not a problem on the day we went. The scenery is awesome, if a little brown because of the... More

We booked the zip lining excursion through our hotel, and it was wonderful. The staff was professional and very fun. They joked with us the entire time, and we felt perfectly safe from start to finish. I would definitely do it again, and I wholeheartedly recommend Pura Aventura to anybody. Make sure you take in the views while you're out... More

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.
