You cannot beat the views. These were some of the longest and highest I've ever done. However, the company lacks efficiency. We waited in a 25 minute line at one point, and 10 minutes for others. We expected to be done around 1 PM based on their information, and ended at 2 PM. Afterwards, they force you to sit through... More

Dear customer About the waiting it's hard to avoid sometimes. People walk slow or take more time to start the lines for due fear etc. About the cultural presentation is not only to sale stuff, we give the Malekus the opportunity to express their culture and show the art they make, people is not obligated to buy anything. I hope... More

we went on the 10am tour, which didn't start until 1030 after the previous tour came back. they do a safety demonstration and then fit everyone into their harness and gear (this part took soooo long - they need to make it more efficient). then they bus everyone to the head where you start your zip lining. they let you...

Dear customer Thank you very much for your comment. Actually our tour starts at 10:30am, not 10:00am. The safety demostration is one of the most important parts of the trip, that will give the client all the confidence they need to do the activity. Anyway I hope you enojoyed the views and the forest of our property. Sincerely Jorge Salas... More

Zip lined in Mexico and this by far is better than any of them. Make sure you do the longest and highest as part of extreme package. Our guides were excellent but we got lucky that it was just two of us and two of them. Going tandem on second run is preferred as it allowed me to view waterfall... More

Just come back from an incredible day on the Arenal Mundo zip lines. 12 line package - with one line nearly 1km long and 100m from the forest floor. Quite a long trek up to the first zip line - which could be a struggle for the less fit! Brilliant guides - who took safety really seriously - but wanted... More

I've lived in the area for a few years and have gone to a few different zip-line tours. I recommend Mundo Aventura for a few reasons. One is that they have a view no one else can claim--going out over the La Fortuna Waterfall. The longest line is about half a mile and goes out over the waterfall. They also... More

My wife and I signed up for the full day excursion which included hiking down to the La Fortuna Waterfall, swimming in the waterfall for about 45 minutes, zip lining through the rain forest, repelling down a huge cliff right next to a different waterfall, followed by more zip lining, ended with a cool horseback ride and small cultural experience....

This was one of the best zip lining trips I've taken! Definitely do the extreme trip - all 7 lines - it is worth the few extra bucks! Guides were great as well!!

We booked this zip lining tour through paradise adventures. There was a very large group on the zip line which was not ideal but we understand with only three tours a day that you need to make money somehow. All staff spoke fairly good English and made you feel very safe. The visit to the indigenous village was a cool... More
