If you have never done a zipline tour, I would say the zipline. Some of the best in the country are located in the Arenal area such as Sky and Ecoglide. That said, if you really like horseback riding and waterfalls, that may be better for you. Really depends on what is more important to you.

Zipline for sure. It is an unbeatable experience. We did Sky Trek, which is the highest and most exciting in the area (you go above a valley and can see the lake on one side and the volcano on the other!) This is still one of our favorite travel experiences.

Zipline, particularly if you have not yet tried one. Many of the horseback rides to the waterfall are very quiet nose to tail rides. Scenic but not adventurous or exciting.

You can also make a much shorter stop at the waterfall on your own by car or taxi if you have an hour or two and want to check it out. Just be warned of the many stairs down and then back up again.

I would do the La Roca tour through Sunset Tours. We did it and had so much fun. It's a combo of everything you're looking for because you rappel through waterfalls, do a zipline, and do a hanging bridge. The area there is really beautiful. That said, we loved ziplining at Sky Trek and loved the waterfall hike too, so you can't really go wrong.
