The number of zip lines was amazing, the rappelling was thrilling, the hollow tree and ladder climb was unique and the Tarzan swing was awesome. The staff were professional, friendly and extremely helpful. I highly recommend this company and the whole experience. We did the 730am start time which meant it was not so hot and we purchased the photons which were reasonably priced, as they captured our time perfectly.

This tour was super exciting for our kids (teens/early 20’s) and it eased the parents in so we enjoyed it and were able to finish the whole course.

The staff, especially David Medina, was super friendly and reassuring to those who needed it and offered additional challenges for the ones who wanted them.

They start with a free-fall swing, then with a few short zip lines to get people aquatinted with the process.

The runs get significantly longer and faster as you go through the 2-hour course. The runs go from a few hundred feet to a half mile across a deep, mountainous canyon at 50 mph.

The Rappel portion is super fun, but requires a climb up a challenging ladder to get back into the tour.

Highly recommend!

This was my first time doing zip lines - the guides were extremely patient and managed my inability to properly slow down with ease. They were patient and made the whole experience fun. I enjoyed the tarzan swing and repelling also - although the scary straight up ladder to the top of one of the zip line platform was not my favorite - I never felt unsafe.

There needs to be more specific details about what to expect before signing up for this trip. The website did say the experience is not suited for people with heart or balance problems or for pregnant women but there were no specifics listed. When we emailed for details, the only response was our confirmation number.

When we got there, they handed us a detailed description. This included needing to climb a 20 foot ladder straight up, that the platforms are very narrow with no handrails and the equipment you have to wear (harness and clips) is quite heavy. Armed with this information we decided not to do the trip. They would not refund our money because they said there was not enough notice. Even when we explained that we asked for details and got no response they still declined even a partial refund.

We ended up doing the sky tram tour with another company and that was awesome. Later in the day we ran into another couple who did the canopy tour and they thought it was terrifying.

Most people talk about their trip to Costa Rica and mention ziplining - so we knew we had to go. This is a great organization. The day we were scheduled to go, they had to cancel since lightening was spotted in the area. They were very accommodating and worked their schedule around ours so we could do this the next day. Safety is a big deal with them and we appreciated it. One of the lines was 1/2 mile long and the scenery was incredible. I took my two teenagers and we all had a blast. We ran into others from our town who had also used this company the previous day and they raved about it and were planning on going again the next day. One of our favorite parts was the opportunity to climb the INSIDE of a tree to get to one of the lines. I would highly recommend this group.

Highly recommend this company! Our guide Gerald has 7 years of experience and explained the all the maneuvers very clearly. I felt very safe the entire tour, and had an absolute blast! One zip line was was half a mile long! Our group of 5 plus 2 guides were the only ones on the tour so there was no waiting like other reviews for other companies highlighted. There is an optional repel and ladder climb - probably the scariest part but I was always clipped into a safety rope. Photos were $10 per person, cash only.

We loved this adventure, there are many choices for Zip lines, but this one is brilliant. Small groups, we it was pretty much a private tour. The highlights are the Tarzan swing and the repel to the forest floor and climb back up the inside of a hollow tree ! Guides were fantastic.

One of the coolest experiences our family has ever had in a tour. Being on top of the jungle canopy gave us incredible views and the ziplines were long and fast. And the tree climb and rapelling was icing on the cake ! I liked that the Orignal Canopy was a more private experience for our family and was not touristy. We highly recommend this company, they were professional and provided us excellent photos of our experience. Highlight of the trip was ziplinging over a family of Howler monkeys. Doesn't get much better than that!

If you ever want to have the most amazing experience look no father . The staff made you feel secure at all times, one zip line after another top each other . You do so much on this tour and each one top the one prior to. Please note there are some challenging climbs so keep that in mind but all so worth it !! Top service . Pura Vida

This was one of the cooler things we did in Costa Rica. All in all it's a tarzan swing, 10 ziplines (some really long and beautiful), rappeling down the forest, and climbing the inside of an old ficus tree. You're able to opt out of things if they're too intense, but I recommend doing it all! The guides were all super friendly and knowledgeable and we felt incredibly safe and secure at all times. Highly recommended!
