I don't know if liked more the horse ridding or the canopy! I will never forget this experience, even with rain was amazing! The staff was really friendly and professional, and it's an adventure program I would say for all ages!

We had a fantastic time doing the canopy tour with Diego, Byron, and Jackson. I was afraid at first but it was worth it! Diego made it feel safe and fun. By the 3rd line I was a pro and I came away smiling! Thank you so much!

We chose to go to Pura Aventura for ziplining as it was one of the closest to Tamarindo, and we didn't want to have to take a bus too far away. We were picked up at our house and driven out to Pura Aventura, which was about 40 minutes from Tamarindo. You need to wear comfortable clothes (shorts and tshirt)... More

I would say this is a bit of an assembly line operation with the guides rushing you from zip-line to zip-line. It's still fun and reasonably safe although you need to allow them to un-clip you quickly because another zip liner is speeding towards you... The fruit offered at the end tasted great and we met some nice people.

We spent the day doing all 3 activities they offer, mountain biking, horseback riding and zip lining. The biking was a great workout and the zip lining was a lot of fun. We were able to see monkeys during our horseback riding tour, and their horses were so well-maintained. The staff were very friendly and we had a great day.... More

Booked through our hotel concierge based on the other travelers recommendations a few days prior. The staff was awesome with our kids (who were a little scared at first). Some of the runs are a lot scarier than others. We loved being able to buy a DVD of pictures and videos for a reasonable price at the end.
