Ziplining/Hanging Bridges/Canyoneering

Plans for my upcoming trip are coming together but I'm still having trouble working out my day of adventure activities. I'd really like to do the sky tram tour - tram, hanging bridges and zipline. My friend also wants to do canyoneering. Is there a way to do all of this in one day/package? We can do ziplining and canyoneering with Desafio but then we miss the tram which sounds really great. Thank you. I will definitely post my own reviews after the trip!

Quite honestly, the tram is just a cool way to get to the zipline. It only takes about 10 minutes and there is no guide (at least to point things out). It is also unlikely you will see any wildlife on the top of the canopy in the middle of the day. That said, it would not be a deal breaker for me to miss the tram.

You could easily do one of the canyons (IMO, La Roca is the best in CR) on the same day as the Sky tour on your own.

There's no one day packages that includes all of that, but you can do Sky Adventures in the morning and La Roca/Lost Canyon/Pure Trek in the afternoon or vice versa. I believe all the canoyning tours have a morning and afternoon program (just not 100% sure about Lost Canyon), and Sky Trek runs several departure times throughout the day

Thanks, everyone! To keep things simple, and if the tram isn't SO fabulous, maybe I will give that up, do the Desafio ziplining tour with my friend in the morning and then she can go on to do the canyoneering. Appreciate your help!

We really enjoyed the tram ride up. We've done other zips that involved a lot of hiking, and it was so easy and fun to just take the tram up. We've also done the La Roca canyoneering and loved it. It's a neat combo tour that has a zipline, the waterfall rappeling, a hanging bridge, etc. all combined into one. Just me personally, but I'd rather do those on two separate days rather than trying to cram everything into one day if you have time.

Thanks for the feedback! I think we are going to split up the activities a bit so they're not all in one day.
