We made the trek to the Osa Canopy Tour on 2/18/14, and had an amazing experience. Our group was a party of four, and the other party who had scheduled for the same time never showed up so we had our own private zip line adventure. From the moment you climb in the truck at the bottom of the mountain for the 7 km drive to the top, you are in for a thrill. Two members of our group had some fears and our guides William and David did a great job with them, mostly with over the top jokes about zip line falls and disasters that were so obviously not true that everyone felt at ease. These guys are super safety-conscious and at no point did anyone need to be concerned that they would not live to tell about their adventure!

When you have worked your way through all the zip line, rappel and bridge stations they take you to a big hut for delicious smoothies and fresh fruit, and the opportunity to do the Tarzan Swing. Don't pass this up - if you thought you had been thrilled up to that point, they have saved the best for last.

This was a bucket list item for me and now I need to do it again. I can't recommend this adventure highly enough!

8 to 9 zip lines, 2 bridge crossing, 2 repels (one upside down) and an optional Tarzan swing at the end. Thoroughly enjoyable.

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 !!!

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.
