If you are staying in the Playa Grande/Tamarindo area and do not want to travel hours into the rainforest for zipling, this is your place. Our group of 12 friends went and had a blast. This is a family owned business and the guys who run the lines are funny really made it made our visit with them a good... More

We stayed at Riu Palace and this was the closest zip lining place which was one thing missing from our other tours so did this. Overall a good experience and workout. Guys who led our group were knowledgeable. The picture dvd package seemed too expensive but then again it's a tourist place and we don't do zip lining everyday.

We got a ride from the riu palace and it was about 15 minutes. The cost for transport and entrance into the animal rescue was only $20 per person. There were 5 or 6 Capuchin monkeys, 2 howler monkeys, 2 spider monkeys, several different birds and a lot of snakes, including a giant boa! They let me feed all of... More

I did not go zip lining here or do any of the other activities offered. We only came here for the monkeys. So that is all my review is based on. We stayed in the area at the Riu Guanacaste and rented a car so we drove here on our own. It was about 4 miles away from our hotel.... More

Took a zip line tour, which was headed by Roy. The staff was professional, using all safety equipment available. We had a blast! Both my wife and I did the "Superman" or "Superchica" option, in her case, where they hook the lines up to your back, and send out to the next platform, with you in the form of someone... More

I'm afraid of heights but I did this for my husband. I can now tick it off my bucket list. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. If you're not afraid of heights you will love it. We saw monkeys and iguanas in the trees.

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 :)
