About Wingnuts Canopy Tours
"Wing Nuts... we are dedicated to natural conservation and to share the beauty of the forest" Wing Nuts Canopy Tour began as an idea back around 1999. We were searching for a way to create economic sustainability for our family, based on conservation of the forest and its itinerant wildlife on our beautiful property. ​ We are located in the beach community of Sámara, on the west coast of the Nicoya Peninsula, province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Living in a world-famous "Blue Zone" for good health, longevity, and happiness, we are blessed to find ourselves as guardians of a substantial patch of Dry Tropical Forest. We are dedicated to natural conservation and to sharing the beauty of our forest and its wildlife, in this gorgeous coastal setting, with travelers and nature lovers from around the world. ​ A family-operated business, Wing Nuts believes that small is beautiful. We offer our tour to small groups, with a maximum of 10 per tour, which allows us to really personalize your c

The staff are experienced and knowledgeable and spoke English fluently. I felt safe and had a blast zip lining and rappelling. There are views of the ocean and we saw butterflies, monkey and an iguana. They offer water and fruit at a midpoint which was a refreshing break. .

Wingnuts is very easy to get to in Samara and includes parking. Highly recommended activity for those of most all ages. My daughter loved the adventure and the guides were excellent. A great way to see the canopies.

Great experience, zip lines through the canopy. We did the tour of 9 zip lines and 2 rappels. It was great, we went with my 6 yr old and my husbands dad who is in his early 70s. They both loved it. Staff was super friendly, very safety oriented. Definitely do this, it's fun and great staff.

We knew we wanted to do a zip line tour, but didn't want to commit an entire day or drive too far from our VRBO outside of Samara (so much to do, too little time). The Wing Nuts Adrenaline Tour was perfect for our group of 7 (4 adults & 3 kids ages 7-9) - 4 zip lines, 2 rappels, surf board zip, and superman zip. The office is right in Samara, and it was a very short drive up the hill to our first zipline. The surf board zip and superman zip were so unique - definitely the favorites of our crew. The other lines/rappels were exciting, but also felt safe. The awesome guides (Renee, Marco, and Manu) controlled the kids speed, but still let them hang upside down/be adventurous. The adults controlled their own speed so it was truly an exciting tour for all ages. The views were gorgeous, the guides were hilarious and kind, and it was just the right amount of fun, adventure, and nature. HIGHLY recommend!

Please make sure you book a tour with Wingnuts while in Samara! We signed up to do the jungle hike with the four of us (2 adults, two kids - 6 and 9) which was a 2-hour exploration of the area. We saw monkeys, iguanas, butterflies, so many species of trees, birds, so much! The guide was knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. The 9 year old and I also did the Adrenaline Zip-lining Tour and had The Best Time Ever. We started with a surfboard zip-line then did regular zip-lining, rappelling, and a superman-style zipline. They even gave us fresh fruit in the middle. It was SO MUCH FUN. We did it as a private tour. Finally, we wanted to go see the Belen Waterfalls and they organized a car to take us just because they are so nice.
