Great experience! Kids had a blast. Very professional. We were so lucky that we were the only 4 zipping that day. Felt like a private excursion. Two girls, 7 and 8, went with the guide for most of the lines but there were a few short ones that they got to go alone. We'd definitely go back.

We booked a trip down the zip line, and wouldn't you know it rained for part of it. But still, it was a blast! There are some great views coming down the mountain, and the guys definitely enjoy there job and seem to have as much fun as we did. I'd recommend this for anyone around Tamarindo!

We had zip lined before in Costa Rica, but this was amazing. The views were amazing and even the youngest child had a blast. The staff was friendly and made sure that everyone was safe and had the best time. Diego was more than helpful at recommending other activities and helping us book them. Amazing adventure!!!!

It was awesome. Friendly guides. ..Diego was great. Our entire crew was amazing, felt safe, had some laughs, they even had water on one of the platforms. I would recommend taking a little more in a backpack :PURA VIDA

I had a fantastic time in Costa Rica. Who wouldn't? The food was fresh and flavorful, the weather was perfect but Visiting Pura Aventura was the cherry on the top, it made our trip so amazingly special. I have been there numerous times with friends. This past visit was with family. First off, the zip lines are second to none!... More

This was my first experience of zip lining and I was super nervous! The guides were really reassuring though and made me feel safe and comfortable and about 4 lines in I was happy to go on my own rather than in tandem with a guide and by the end I felt like an expert! Positives: lovely ride in a... More
