I've been begging my husband to take me on a zipline for 4 years! He encouraged me to wait until we could come to Costa Rica for the legendary canopies. I was NOT disappointed! The first couple of lines were a little scary until we got the hang of them, and then we were experts!! There was even a retired... More

Our family did the Zip line at the park. It was raining and cloudy, but we loved it. Our kids really wanted to do this, but I suspected they didn't know what they were singing up for. Our 7 year old daughter was scared, but towards the end she started to warm up to it. Our 4 year son loved... More

I did not expect to enjoy the hanging bridges as much as I did. It is a completely different view from the bridges and well worth doing! You are in the middle of the canopy or the top of the emergent layer. The views are amazing. I did not find anything about the bridges themselves frightening and 6 year old... More

Great, Great, Great. Thrilling Zip Lining and Hanging Bridges over the beautiful rain forest. Once in a lifetime hummingbird sanctuary with so many species for hummingbirds that will land on your hands. The Restaurant and Staff were exceptional. Highly recommend that you spend a day tour here.

Everyone was on time. Our guide was ok and very knowledgeable. We felt a bit rushed through but I found out later we could have gone back through by ourselves after. It might have been nice to wait in quiet areas away from the loud groups to see what came out. We did see a Quetzal which was our highlight.... More

We did the walking canopy tour and butterfly and hummingbird gardens. The scenery was gorgeous, and we had the place almost to ourselves on a March morning. We got some great photos of hummingbirds and butterflies as well as the expansive forest canopy. It was nice to be able to purchase the attractions a la carte so we saw just... More

Did the zip lining, hanging bridges and hummingbird garden. Great experience! It was my first time ziplining and I was slightly nervous but the staff were very professional and made me feel really safe! The hanging bridges were lovely and the hummingbird garden was fascinating. Would definitely recommend a visit!

What a fun and interesting place. Zip lining is such fun. You can do the last line in a superman pose by wearing an extra harness. Bear in mind you will need to carry this extra kit and it is heavy for quite some way! Guided tours of the butterflies and other exhibitions are worth the time.
