About
"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

We booked the combo tour and did the regular zipline as well as the new Canopy Surfing on a surfboard. It was SO much fun and such a unique experience.
Our guides were Rene, Diego and Manu and they were all great. They make you feel safe and relaxed and ensure you have fun. They will pull you out of your comfort zone a bit and show you that you really can do things you thought you couldn't (or wouldn't!).
We even saw a wild coati that visited us on one of the platforms. It was really special.
Great fun for all ages.

The entire experience was insanely fun. From riding in the car through the jungle to the beautiful view of the ocean at the zip line start. Plenty of opportunities for pictures and videos to share! Claudio at the office gave use great info about the local businesses and tours to check out. The guides were locals that spoke English, they were very friendly and made us all feel welcome. Daniel and Marco helped strap me in and definitely knew what they were doing; they made me feel safe the entire way. Manu was at the landing dock to get us safely down and was super friendly! I went with my friends, they offered us hand sanitizer and everyone wore masks. We did the canopy surfing and the superman lines. Amazing amazing! I can't wait to come back.

Very dedicated staff who make safety and enjoyment on the course top priority. Stunning views and the added bonus of knowledgeable guides who are a wealth of information about the forest and its creatures. They were also able to pick us up and return us to our resort, Azura Beach Resort which is in the area. Priced very fairly and conveniently in Sámara meant not having to waste the travel time to pursue the trip the hotel was pushing on us at more that 3x the cost. We had such a wonderful afternoon with huge thanks to Luis and René… from those two Canadians 🇨🇦

We had an amazing day with our guides Manu & Freddy!! Fun, fast zip lines and some breath taking views!! We did the whole shebang... zip lines, canopy surfing and Superman. All were great fun, but we had a large group of 7 so the Superman and canopy surfing took a really long time, added an extra 2 hours to our time. Great experiences, but think it’s good to know that it can take a good amount of time for those extras! Great service! Very professional, fun and funny!! Loved it!

Four of us showed up to see if or how Wingnuts might accommodate us because one adventurous guy in our group has very limited mobility and requires a fancy walker for navigating. We were greeted by Rene and he was a delight to work with. After assessing our situation he recommended we do only the first line and experience that "superman style!" It was apparent that Rene and his team were going to give up kid-glove treatment - all while smiling and joking with us! The four of us all opted to do it Superman style and even though we only did the one zip, we all came away happy! What a great team!!! Hats off to the Wingnuts!

Fun for big family! Teens will definitely get some adrenaline running. Company is very accommodating and responsive. Communication was fast and helpful, we had many questions before we decided to go, but Marcelo was patient and helped to organize a nice day in the jungles for us. Thank you so much!!! It was fun experience!!

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!

Our family of four (10yo and 11yo sons) had a fantastic time zip lining and Sky Ripping last week at Wingnuts. Felt extremely safe the entire time, never a doubt in my mind that safety is paramount with all the employees. My husband and 10yo decided to do Sky Ripping (sky surf boarding), the only of its kind in Costa Rica! So flipping crazy cool! I will add that there are two rappelling spots off platforms and it took more guts than zip lining (for me at least). All the employees from Jorge, Diego and Manu were all fantastic! Thanks dudes for a super fun outing for our family!

I have been to wingnuts canopy previously. This time I brought my Part of our honeymoon. She absolutely loved the guy Freddy and Marcos were phenomenal. We had the most wonderful day. We started with the sky surfing zip line!! it is a must do. We then did some zip lining repelling then the headfirst repel and ended with the Superman. What an amazing day. It is worth coming to Costa Rica just to visit wingnuts I highly recommend the wingnuts canopy adventure.

Everything others said in other reviews is true. And so as not to be repetitive I just echo that (experience, friendliness of tour guides and their professionalism and attention to security). The surfing part was awesome and they say it is their specialty. My kids (8 and 10) loved it and even smaller children of another family in our group did ostensibly do too. As an added benefit to the zip-line experience one is being hoisted down from 2 trees each about 15 yards high. Absolutely go for it ; it is something you will remember and need not have worries about bringing smaller children (whom they regularly have as customers as young as 2 years they said).
