We had a group of 8 and 6 of them had never ziplined before. Everyone loved it! Our guides were very friendly. Some of the walking is steep and it was very warm. They had water available at several places along the way and we were able to go at our own pace. Did not feel rushed. Great value for... More

Absolutely loved the ziplines....the tour guides were very professional...it was a fun filled day...a lot of walking though , so if you have a hard time walking it may be hard on you to walk to the top...but it is so worth it....zip lines...waterslide, hot springs....wow!

Loved It! The guides were helpful, funny and attentive. It is a great fun filled half day excursion and excitement filled fun. Would do it again. Only 15 minutes drive from the resort. Reasonably priced.

We visited the Congo Trail because of all of the positive reviews. We didn't do the ATV ride but we saw a lot of people doing it. It's the dry season in Guanacaste, so it was really dusty on the gravel roads. There were times that we couldn't see the fourwheelers because of all the dust, so I would suggest... More

Hi, We just visited Congo Trails on 2/14/2015, Super amazing and friendly staff. Super safety conscious and we were a group of 10 adults and kids most of us were nervous but our tour guides Noel & Alonso made each one of us comfortable and ready to zip!!!

I tried the zipline only because my wife wanted to try it. (I am afraid of heights.) We both really enjoyed the zipline.

Great staff, very clean, very safe. Do the Extremo package - too much fun! We went to the site on ATV's, very dusty, be sure to have some sort of sealed eye wear. Even if it is a set of pool goggles it will help out big time, wear dark clothes and have foot wear that will not come off... More

If you do, I would visit the Congo Trail. I vacationed solo and I enjoyed it. Our group had an 81 year old zip lining for the first time! We met the front desk person, Miguel, who told us how it was all going to go down. There was a short wait, but there is plenty to see. Go out... More

Great value. We zip lined, and checked out the wildlife area. The zip lining was great, the kids (8 and 10) loved it. The guides were fun. The little zoo is a little sad, seeing the animals locked up. It was pretty cool though to see all the monkeys in the trees out in the wild though.

Once again, a great experience in Costa Rica. The guides were very friendly & liked to joke... but were very serious when it came to safety. A beautiful area in a beautiful country. This was my wife's first ziplining and she had no qualms. We wanted to do it all over again, just not enough time! We popped for the... More
