What a thrill!!!! Booked a zipline and BBQ dinner thru Black stallion website...it didn't disappoint. Alex the owner was professional and attentive, a genuine"nice" fellow. I've enjoyed several outing around tamarindo, and this was the most pleasant. Great value and experience. Thank you, and we shall see you again. Cheers
