Good ziplining

Safari Adventures takes you up to La Selvita for their ziplining. Great drive to get there. Let's hope the Costa Ricans can continue to keep La Selvita a lovely nature spot.

After stopping at the waterfall for a swim, we had lunch at a restaurant atop the area we traversed and swam at. The food was delicious and the rest stop was well tended to. The staff was... More

If you want to experience the rainforest at its purest, nothing can compare to riding the ATV to La Selvita. We went up the steep stairs to see beautiful water falls. It's worth the trip.

We stopped for a quick jump in the natural pool and water fall after our canopy and ATV tours. Beautiful place, no facilities, make sure to bring everything you need.

We went ziplining and it was an amazing experience. The guides were knowledgeable, funny and very friendly. They ensured that we felt comfortable and really made the experience! The views are fantastic and with about 10 lines, a free fall jump (optional), a Tarzan swing (also optional), and a photographer, the excursion is a great deal. I felt safe (a... More

Mike and Diego made our zipline canopy tour a fun and fascinating experience. Using our camera, Mike captured the thrill of our flying through the jungle and both guides taught us about the Costa Rican jungle as we walked along the trails - pointing out the walking tree, the water vine, the irridescent dart frog, the sound of the toucans....

We set up our canopy zip-line tour with La Posada Jungle Hotel and enjoyed our trip from Manual Antonio and our home made breakfast before our tour. We all enjoyed the experience and the awesome views from the lines and the towers. The swim... More

What an amazing day. Zip lining was even more exhilarating, fun, and intense than I'd imagined. Gorgeous setting, perfect guides. Made me feel comfortable and safe. Great hike, fantastic waterfall swim at the end. Easily worth the cost. Trip to Costa Rica would not be the same without this.
