I was both terrified and very excited for my first real zip-lining experience (the first time involved zip lining across a river in Cusco with gloves that were half broken). We booked with Original Canopy due to the high ratings on TA, and they did not disappoint! We reserved for the 7:30AM tour and were promptly picked up from our... More

Thought this was put together very well. The Tarzan swing was a good warm up. The shorter runs built up to longer runs. Really wanted to do zip lines that made you feel like you were part of the forest and this did ( I wanted the "nat geo" experience). The guides were very organized and efficient. I even liked...

This was my first time ziplining, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it was a lot of fun. The guides were great, and I always felt safe despite the crazy stuff we were doing. I think my favorite thing was the Tarzan swing, though climbing up the inside of a strangler fig was also pretty cool.... More

We hadn’t quite realised what we had booked onto after looking at far too many options in the tourist office. However, this trip was brilliant and we weren’t disappointed. It’s not the longest, highest zip lining tour nor does it have the superman wire that others include but its great fun. We had two guides who made sure everyone was... More

Would like to thank Alfonso and his colleague for an amazing adventure today for the 8 of us on the zip lines! Clear instructions, smiling faces and loads of fun all the way through! They even helped us take some brilliant pictures all along the way through three tree tops. Can't wait to share those! Would recommend any day!! If... More

We went on a fairly windy day in January and were picked up at our hotel. They provide a locker with a lock to leave extra gear. Our guides were very professional and safety was foremost in their directions and procedure. We began with the optional Tarzan swing and then tried some shorter zip lines, graduated to longer ones and... More

This was a great zipline experience. I've done others before, but for the value, I would highly recommend this one. You have the tarzan swing, the hollow tree and 14 ziplines. Some are quite short and some are very long. Halfway through they asked the group (which was quite large) if they were comfortable with continuing and some opted to... More

The ziplining was great fun - such an adrenaline rush! The guides are really friendly and fun and take great care of you. I also loved having ziplines through the forest as well as ones with amazing views of the Nicoya peninsula

Good price and great experience. We were picked up from our MV hotel, spent about 2 hrs at the zip line area. It includes a tarzan swing and climbing a hollow tree. Good deal.

This tour is in a very authentic place. You'll bike a bit on the forest to cet the plateforme, which are in the trees. No metal tower, you'll feel in a natural place. The tour includes 4 types of activities, which is a very good value for the price. The view is also astonishing, you'll get to see the Pacific... More
