“Best adventure in the aerea”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

this tour is outstanding !!! they take you to the top of the mountain in a safari like jeep which is already worth something & once you arrived at the starting point these super knowledgable guides who are with you the entire tour explain everything you need to know precisely.I felt so well taken care of & looked after that I completely forgot about my fear of hights.
They have 14 platforms, 9 cables, 2 rappelling stations,1 suspension bridge and an amazing tarzan swing at the end where you just feel like on top of the world !!!!
I think I never had a better adventure in my life & I'm over 60... I heard the age record is 87... so I have to come back then.
Thank you so much guys!!! you were great !!!

Thank flamboyanta

“Adventure among the tree tops.”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The staff of Osa Canopy Tour (OCT) were awesome and they made us feel welcome, comfortable and well taken care of. Bodhi Surf School setup our zipline adventure with OCT which was quite a good bargain. Once we left their office we rode in their 4-wheel drive vehicle to the top of the mountain, the ride offered amazing views as we made our way into the clouds. I must admit, being scared of heights I was a bit (a LOT) nervous but they understood that and explained everything to me and took great care to make sure I was comfortable. Once we completed that first of 9 ziplines I knew I could do it. We really had a great time. Not only did we enjoy the ziplines but also two suspension bridges, two rappels and one Tarzan type swing. These guys were at ease as if they were born doing this. The whole experience was empowering, great fun and an awesome experience. The staff again were friendly but always professional and capable. We recommend OCT and bring your helmet camera if you have one; I wished I had one - the images and video would have been spectacular.

“Excellent ziplining experience”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning of ziplining with Osa Mountain Canopy tours. The tour starts early (7:30 a.m.) with a drive up to the top of the mountain. After a brief orientation, one begins the 9 zip lines through the tree tops across a gorgeous canyon with great views of the ocean below. The guides are friendly, helpful and able to handle less skilled zip liners. Leather hand protectors are provided to help with breaking on the lines.
In addition to the zip lines, there are two rope bridges and two rope repelling stations. The tour ends with an optional Tarzan swing.
Highly recommended experience for families with teens.

“Amazing and so much fun!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We just returned home from our trip to Costa Rica and Osa Canopy Tours was recommended to us by someone staying at our hotel. Everyone else in our group had been zip lining before, except for me. I was terrified, but the guys running our tour were great! They were so nice and understanding of my hesitation. You can really tell that everyone who works there loves their job. They made an amazing experience even better. I would recommended Osa Canopy Tours to everyone!!
