Owner description: WATERFALLS ZIP LINE TOURS The canopy consists of a series of 9 cables, 13 platforms that are suspended high above the forest floor. While on the canopy tour you will see a number of plants and animals unique to Costa Rica, possibly including howler and white-faced monkeys, parrots, iguanas and much more. During the tour we stop at the famous waterfalls where you can take pictures and go for a swim in the pools carved by the cascading waters. After that we´ll stop in Montezuma, so you can have some time to shop and look around.

“Totally worth every single colón! SO MUCH FUN and GREAT GUIDES!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I don't even know how much this cost, but it wasn't much compared to the amount of fun we had. We are two women friends and our kids ages 4 and 5! We went at 1:00 and had a totally private tour because no one else was there!!! Amazing...especially compared to Monteverde which packs up in 30-40 at a time! After 9 zip lines, some SUPER long and exciting, we hiked down to the waterfalls and pools and hung out there for at least an hour in the sun, swimming, jumping in, swinging on the rope and just enjoying the beautiful atmosphere. There was then another 3 or 4 lines that ended the the longest and fastest one last. The kids wanted to do it again immediately. We got a great DVD with tons of really good photos and videos for $20; totally worth it. The whole thing was a wonderful experience and the expertise and friendliness of the guides, especially with the kids made it even better. LOVED IT! Thanks.

“A great first zipline experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

This tour was my first time zip lining, and the staff here were exceptionally friendly and informative both before and during the tour. Some of the ziplines were a bit short, and we did do quite a few stairs, but the stunning longline at the end left me with a thrill. Wear your bathing suit as the midpoint of the tour features a swim in the topmost tier of Montezuma Falls. After all that sweaty jungle trekking, yore going to want to take a dip. Try the rope swing into the pool :)

“Great tour in Montezuma!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

My wife and I booked this tour during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The staff was great and the scenery was fantastic. The photos and videos on the $20 disc we purchased from them were awesome and something we are very happy we decided to buy.

“Very professional and stunning scenery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

This tour is spectacular! We had a mixed group of experienced zip liners and several that had never done it! The staff is very patient and encouraging! They take photos and do a video for purchase at the end ($20) and it is well worth the price. The trip to the waterfalls is amazing! The steps up can be a bit tough though if you are out of shape like I am LOL. This is a must do!

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

This was a lot of fun! For $40, it is a tad overpriced, but still worthwhile.

After the first group of platforms, they take you down to one of the waterfalls. You only have a limited amount of time, so don't waste it standing around! Jump in! It's definitely deep enough and you'll want to hop on that rope swing before the others in your group spot it.

Speaking of groups, it'd be nice if they put a tighter cap on group size. Waiting in line on the platforms got old, especially if you are put with a loud group of Jersey Shore types.

The hike from the falls back to the next platform is not for the overweight or extremely out of shape, trust me. If you are hesitant after that statement, then don't go. It is steep and demanding. If you are of average fitness, you'll be fine.

The guides are all very kind and patient and they even give everybody a cold bottle of water at the end.

Stunning views and thrilling speeds. Do it!
