This was my favourite activity while visiting Costa Rica. I've wanted to go zip-lining for years and was happy to have waited to experience such a fun adventure in this environment. Our guides Manu and Rene were very professional and kind. All fear was replaced by excitement after zipping down the first line and by the tenth and last, I... More

We really enjoyed it. Manu (spelling?) and Rene were good fun and very professional. The equipment looked good quality (e.g. Petzl harnesses). Eating fresh pineapple with Boris (a huge iguana) on a platform 20m up a tree was pretty cool. The 2 high speed abseils (rappels) were pretty exciting. Rene was also good enough to send us some photos he... More

To me, this is what I think of when I think about Costa Rica ziplines. You're going through the treetops in an exciting way, viewing gorgeous scenery throughout. I think thiis (and all) ziplines in Guanacaste are going to be a touch better during the wet season, with the trees and shrubbery all green, along with flowing creeks. Just a... More

If you're travelling Costa Rica, a canopy zip line tour is a must. Combining flora and fauna with high adrenaline zip-lining through the jungle provides and incredible and racing experience. We saw two iguanas and a coati and our guides were very professional and informative. Inside tip: ask about an aussie rappell when doing the two rappells of the tour... More

This was such a fun day!! I felt so safe with our 2 amazing guides!! If you don't do this when you come to samara then you are missing out!! Amazing fun day with fresh fruit and water halfway through. We even had a visit from some native critters. Wonderful family run business! Thank you so much!

This was a fantastic zip line adventure under the canopy of the rain forest. I went solo, but went with a group including 3 little boys. They were scared at first, but our guides, Manu and Rene were great and knew how to get them calm...they wanted to go first from then on. I will definitely do it again next... More

Amazing tour with Freddie! My husband and I have never been ziplining and had no idea what to expect. We thought you would do 1 or 2 runs and call it a day. This was 10 runs and we even repelled 2x as well. We are not the adventureous type and not kids either so we were a little apprehensive.... More

I would recommend this experience to ANYONE visiting Samara! I am terrified or heights, so I was a little worried about zip lining through the jungle. Once we got started I completely forgot about my fears! The jungle is beautiful and our guides, Manu and Freddy, were wonderful!

We came with a group of 17. The whole staff was patient and fun. Manu and Freddie calmed the kids who were afraid and by the end of the tour everyone was confident and happy. 💜💙💜💙
