This was an incredible experience from start to finish. My family of four (including 2 tween and teen daughters) had a wonderful time. We are still raving about the experience a year later. David was an incredible and knowledgeable guide. Safety was a key concern, as was fun. We saw wildlife, spectacular views, and tested ourselves beyond what we thought... More

It was a blast. The staff were friendly and knew their stuff. The ziplines were fast, fun and safe. My boys loved the Tarzan Swing the best. My husband the rappelling and then climbing up the hollow tree. I liked the long zip at the best (almost 1/2 km) even though I screamed the whole time.

This is the 3rd zip lining I've done and by far the best. Lots of different zip lines through the trees and the last 2 were HUGE - zipping from 1 mountain to another with amazing views. You can ride them sitting or Superman style (the last 2) plus for those who like bungee style drops there's the Tarzan Swing... More

I did a lot of research before booking with this specific company. My family loved this adventure and my 10 years old son woke up next morning asking for more. Everything was great - the whole setting, hike to the canopies, instructors, equipment - top notch with authentic feel to it. Highly recommended.

The tour itself was great - way up in the canopy and climbing the outside of the strangler fig tree was fun, if a little scary. What let it down for us was the mixed attitude of the staff. They set a somewhat blistering pace as if they couldn't wait for it to be over. I suspect it was simply... More

One of the many highlights of our trip to Costa Rica-we did the early trip (only 3 people in our group) which i'd highly recommend. The tarzan swing was great to settle nerves! 15 ziplines in total with incredible views. Repelling down a tree and climbing up again was an added bonus!

More than 30 people starting at the same time with only 5 guides made this an horrible experince. It took more than an 1,5 hour before we started ziplining. The group was later divided in to 2 but with 15 people and 3 guides it still took forever. The total tour took more than 4 hours instead 2-3 as we... More

If you choose to go Ziplining come here. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The orientation was awesome, and the guides were awesome individuals who really cared about you and safety was always first. I only went to the sixth station but there are 14 stations, so if you had enough you could quit at... More
