I don't think they let you leave Costa Rica unless you've done a zip line tour... And this is a great place to fulfill that requirement. Fabulous guides with great attitudes. Numerous zip lines, two rope bridges, two rappelling stations and an optional (do it!) Tarzan swing. Be sure to add the animal sanctuary to the end of your trip (you can pay directly at the sanctuary if you prefer)... it's amazing.

“Lots of fun”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We had an excellent time flying through the canopy with Jacob and his team. They were all professional and kept us very safe during the adventure. The zip lnes themselves were longer than I expected and the speed that you got to travel exceeeded my expectations. Both kids and adults were thrilled by the action and awed by the natural beauty of what we got the experience. I highly reccommend this tour. It was worth the extra drive and was a great value in terms of the memories we created. We even saw toucans while waiting on one of the platforms. Amazing!

“Terrific fun!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend, sister and I did this canopy tour the week of March 17, 2014. it was fantastic! My sister had done another one where you had to wait around a lot, and there were only a few platforms. Not here - there were 4 or 5 guides, we felt very safe and it was a blast. Do the Tarzan swing at the end - a great finale.

This was a lot of fun and everything ran smoothly. The staff were fun but still very professional. They make sure everyone is safe. Enjoy it and make sure you take advantage of looking around at the scenery! Definitely do the tarzan swing at the end.

“An Adrenaline Rush!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

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!
