This was our first time zip-lining (my wife and I, and kids 10, 12, and 14). We researched quite a few places, and chose Congo Trail based on reviews, location, and price (in that order) - we had a LOT of fun. The guides are very funny, speak English, and are very thorough to make sure everything is done safely.... More

Had a blast, was terrified at first but ended by doing the "superman". Not the biggest of Costa Ricas Canopy tours but great for beginners. Tour guides were very pleasant. Truly a must in Costa Rica.

Greg loved the thrill and flying through the jungle!..The Guides were great! Family friendly. There is also a small area where monkey's, snakes and birds can be viewed. Iguana's and Howler monkeys own the property :)

I did lots of research before I decided where we should zipline in Costa Rica and based on all the reviews I decided on The Congo Trail Canopy Tour for our family of four (kids 11 and 13). My kids are not the adventurous type and this was perfect for them. The guides were great and gave perfect instructions. The... More

First time zip-line adventure for us, and it was great. I felt very safe and we had lots of fun. Gift shop is way overpriced.

The guides were very informative as well as fun. The views were tremendous! The zip lines weren't quite like the ones at home but we got used to them.

Went to the Congo Canopy Tour with my Sister in Law and daughters 13 and 15. We all 4 really enjoyed this tour. The guides keep the people moving along on the ziplines, not a lot of standing around waiting your turn. There are water stands at several of the stopping points, which is great because the weather is very... More

My husband, myself and 2 daughters ages 18 & 20 drove our rental car about 20 minutes from Playa Del Coco to Congo Trail. Roads could be better marked in Costa Rica in general, but our hotel gave us good directions. If you are not part of a tour, the rates are $35 for either the regular zip tour or... More

The guides at congo trail canopy were amazing with our family. I have a deep set fear of heights and my son cannot go alone on a zipline. The guides were very patient with him and spent 15 minutes encouraging him and then accompanying him on the zipline. He had a blast once he overcame his anxiety. I owe gratitude... More
