“Best Adventure in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

During our stay in Manuel Antonio we knew we wanted to do a zip line canopy tour and Midworld was the obvious choice. Both of us had done zip lines before, but we were in for an excellent surprise with Midworld. Midworld boasts 15+ zip lines on the basic tour, plus a high ropes challenge course and a Superman line. We did it all. The basic canopy tour was really fun. Zipping from giant tree to giant tree through the jungle felt like something out of an adventure movie, but much safer! The zip lines were diverse, some short and some long, with varying scenery - but all were fast and fun. Throughout the canopy tour, our guides (Edwin and Diego) showed obvious attention to our safety and comfort. We were always clipped in to two different points and the zip lines themselves work on a double cable safety system (something I haven't seen before, even in the US). However, the attention to safety was not overstated to the point that it detracted from the experience. They did a great job finding the balance between keeping us comfortable and safe and having a good time on our zip line adventure.

The high ropes course is integrated into the canopy zip line tour. The course is challenging and fun, but not too complicated. Its definitely worth it, especially if you have never done a high ropes course before. The Tarzan swing alone makes the course a must do!

Superman! We cannot recommend the Superman line enough. It was simply amazing. Flying through the jungle treetops reaching 50+ mph for a 1000+ meters, WOW. It was the absolute most fun thing we did during our vacation. We felt like Superman! In fact, we were so inspired that the evening before our return flight to the states we saw "Man of Steel" at the Imax San Jose. Don't miss the Superman!

After flying through the air we returned to solid ground for a delicious lunch! Many tour providers provided snacks or meals - Midworld's was by far the best. Hats off to the Midworld cooks. We wanted to come back here just for the meal.

After all the canopy tour and Superman (not to mention the great meal), we were so impressed with Midworld we decided to do their ATV tour as well. The tour was much longer and more impressive than expected. We had a great time cruising through the jungle and splashing through mud puddles. I felt like Indiana Jones! (young Indiana Jones). The tour include some fantastic picture opportunities as well - a beautiful waterfall, panoramic jungle scape, and we even saw squirrel monkeys. We were really glad we chose Midworld for ATVs as well. And again, we enjoyed that fantastic lunch.

Overall, we can't recommend Midworld highly enough. The zip lines, the ATVs, and especially the Superman were all fantastic. We felt safe in everything we did, but we also had a lot of fun. If you want to feel like a superhero/archeologist, check out Midworld!

“That was Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Our family of four (including a 12- and 10-year-old) absolutely loved this. Joseph was an outstanding guide and we highly recommend him as he added to our learning of the Costa Rican culture during the drive to the site. The canopy tour exceeded expectations and we highly recommend paying the extra to do Superman at the end. Definitely one of the most unforgettable moments of our trip to Costa Rica. Would absolutely do it again.

“Best time in Manuel Antonio!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

This was the best time I had during my stay in MA. It was BEAUTIFUL and so much fun. The guides were very friendly and even helped me practice my Spanish! I've been zip lining before but this company stands high above the rest. Miguel and Diego were our guides and they were amazing. They always made me feel safe and were very nice when I was nervous at the beginning. Everyone visiting MA needs to do this canopy tour. Plus the meal was amazing! Loved it!

“Fantastic Fun, a Must Do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This company is a class act - friendly, professional, and fun to be around. On the way to the site, we learned so much about the culture from our amazing guide David, better known as "Flea". The zip line courses were exciting and the guides made us feel safe the whole time. I loved that this company has a 2 cable system, a backup cable to ensure safety. Loved the experience and highly recommend it as a Must Do if you are in the area.
