I went with my kids (13 and 10). This was our first time ziplining, and we all enjoyed it. The tour went really quickly, maybe because our party was small. Our guides were nice, but not super talkative. Having done a different zipline in another part of Costa Rica, for the same price, I will say that this is a "starter" course for some of the more "extreme" lines you can do in other areas.

Thank you for the review. We really appreciate the feedback. We do have several options on zip lines throughout the country but it is usually determined which one we use by the location of the client and/or the age of the participants. We have many multi-generational travelers so sometimes that determines which zip line to use. Our utmost concern is always safety and then enjoyment, (usually the monkeys provide that part). We have many other high adrenaline adventure activities available and hopefully you will give others such as whitewater river rafting and waterfall rappelling a try. Thank you again, please come back soon & "PURA VIDA"

Saw everything we expected and more! Lots of sloths (3-toed and 2-toed), multiple species of monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas, tons of birds, a few frogs, and even some bats. Our guide, Jose Caravaca, was incredibly knowledgeable, very friendly, and highly professional. His English was excellent, which was critical since our Spanish was very limited. Also, Melissa in the Bill Beard office was very helpful and responsive you our questions leading up to the tour. Highly recommended!!!!!

My 10 year-old son wanted to try scuba diving, so we tried the resort course. The instructor went through the safety lesson, the equipment, and pool time with him. He had some issues with equalizing his ears due to the pressure, but the instructor was patient with him and made sure he was comfortable. He said it was his favorite part of the trip and wants to get certified when he is old enough.

Heartwarming review. You can't image how happy your review makes up. We have been introducing future divers to the sport for 50 years and it's a job we love. Not only is it our job but also our passion. There is no better feeling for us than to bring another diver into our underwater world. Please make sure your son gets certified and 10 years of age is old enough to take the course now. Thank you for your wonderful review. PURA VIDA & Safe Diving Always.

The crew was great and was always making sure we had a drink or anything else we wanted. Snorkeling was excellent and the sunset on the way back was amazing. The crew spotted out whales and dolphins for us on the trip.

Gulf of Papagayo, Costa Rica43 contributions35 helpful votes
We booked this trip through Tripadvisor and found the whole experience to be amazing. Although they did not have transport from our specific hotel, they made arrangements easily for us. Unfortunately we went on a day when the ocean bottom was stirred up, so no snorkeling for us. Oh well that happens. We did however spend time at a secluded beach and explore some caves. It made for a great afternoon any way. The crew on the boat are awesome and come around frequently to make sure you are all good. The BBQ chicken they served was amazing. I highly recommend this trip and if you can spend the evening in Coco Beach after.

We are so happy that you enjoyed our sunset, sailing, snorkeling tour and really appreciate the positive review. We agree that the crew is efficient, friendly and attentive. Where else can you spend time on a secluded beach that is only accessible by boat? We also agree that the Bar-B-Que chicken is outstanding as well as the other food and unlimited drinks. A great afternoon for all ages and the gorgeous Pacific Ocean sunsets year around. It doesn't get any better than to be under sail as the sun sets over the Pacific. The colors are breathtaking. Please hurry back and visit us again. PURA VIDA
