“ADRENALINE RUSH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

I've done 2 zip lines in Costa Rica that were fun. This one turned out quite different and interesting. I was concerned that it would rain however was told that you will fly faster if it's raining. I had no interest in doing this in the rain. It had rained all night and then cleared in the morning. We started out and after the 1st line it was drizzling, no problem... the weather worsened and it was pouring, what a blast it was to be zip lining in the pouring rain, who knew? At the end we were soaked head to toe and wishing we could do it all over. The rope course was challenging in the rain as it requires some degree of concentration.

Off to Boquette in a few days, I hear their zip line is also wonderful. Quite addicting!

“Zip Line Tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

Some of the problems we encountered were: not enough orientation or prep time before starting tour. Guides were not very friendly. Their website recommended no personal cameras (they would take professional photos). We did not take our camera and were very disappointed that no one was available to take photos. My husband incurred cuts and major bruising on his legs from zipping into a tree instead of being stopped by one of the guides (who was not attentive). We are both 65 and found the tour to be challenging but a great deal of fun. Would do a zip line tour again if we have the chance.

“Fun, Fun, Fun...Zip Line Adventure that you can not miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

I am picky, Adventurous, but still like it safe. We went with a group of 11 who were sailing off Panama. We heard that we could not miss the canopy tour of Bastimentos. We sailed close then took the dingy to shore... Most come by water taxi. We were 26 to 53 years old with varying degrees of risk tolerance. The safety steps were top shelf... Much like the Australians I bungee jumped with in British Colombia. This was two plus hours of fun. My girlfriend is not a high risk taker... But when she saw how safe it wad... She had a blast. I have never heard her laugh like she did that day as she zipped across the trees of Panama. Go to the web site...look at the galleries. Great fun, reasonably priced, a memory for life...all ages will enjoy this experience. Amazing staff, mixed with Americans and locals. As Nike says... Just do it....

“Incredible Fantastic Amazing Breath-taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

Simply could not have been any better. Beauty beyond description, leaving you in awe. Exhilarating, just enough of a fear-factor to make it thrilling. Always felt safe, the staff was incredible: fun, knowledgeable, professionally trained, focused and totally into their jobs. Loved "Soca"! Would (and will) do it again in a heartbeat! See you next Spring break!

“Fantastic fun in the jungle canopy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2011

I recently did the Bastimentos Sky Zipline Canopy tour while staying at The Villas at Red Frog Beach. My aunt and I both had a fantastic time. It was POURING rain while we were gearing up and the guides simply smiled and said it makes the lines faster. This tour is a MUST DO for anyone in the Bocas area! Rain or shine, it is worth every penny! The guides are amazing- so personable and fun. Safety precautions are taken at every step of the tour.
