We had never done this, it was awesome. Are guides helped with our confidence and we felt very comfortable. We are 62 years old and had no problems, so try it. At the gift shop, good CDs and look up into the trees to see the squirrel monkeys pulling on the iguanas tale. If you get the DVD of the... More

I went during the week of March 14-18. I am afraid of heights but I ended up enjoying myself. The staff was very friendly. They made sure that we were all safe and knew what to do. The zip lines were fast and fun. there are also monkeys there.

4 of us zip lined here, and we all loved it. I am afraid of heights and I still had a blast. The guides were all funny, and there were about 10 minutes of instructions that they repeated over and over. It was simple to follow too. One hand behind to brake, one hand on the harness rope. They say... More

The zip lining is fun, but the ATV beach tour is even more fun! Don't miss out on either one, especially if you've never been zip lining. Best of all, they have a primate sanctuary with absolutely ADORABLE white faced, spider, and howler monkeys. They even bring a few out for you to play with! They have 2 options for... More

This was my first time ziplining, and I was excited to try it. Unfortunately, the instructors speak quickly with a heavy accent and the instructions were poor, specifically on the dismount. I ended up having an accident that could have been prevented with better warnings. My gloves were too big, and I'm a small person. Also, I have an old... More

We ziplined at Congo Trail and had a great experience. Two of us (including me) were absolutely petrified at the start of the course. Luis, our guide, was so patient and caring, and even offered to piggyback with one of my friends who was really scared. They even had a pickup truck waiting halfway through the course in case anyone... More

Good day excursion from Playas del Coco. Zip line set up well with 10 different sections. Staff was very friendly and accommodating with our group of 6. Don't miss viewing the monkeys entertaining tourists from their perch in the trees.

What a great zip lining tour! Six of us went through the 10 stations and absolutely loved it. Four of us had never zip lined before and had a blast! It is located off the beaten path but it was well worth it. The guys that assisted us were very good and patient with us beginners. We loved the lines,... More

Great intro to zip lining near Playa Portreyo. Friendly and professional. The canopy is a bit dry but that's to be expected this time of year in this region

We ventured here with my senior parents and 5 year old daughter. And what a great time! The staff were incredible. Patient and helpful. They made the trip so memorable by pointing out local flora/ fauna. Including howler monkeys in the nearby canopy. Be prepared to walk steep inclines but if you tire guides are ready to assist and keep... More
