Jonathon and Christine are two of the nicest people we've met in Costa Rica. Their aerial set-up, patient instructing methods and world-class experience made our trapeze experience INCREDIBLE! Don't think you can trapeze? We didn't either but left completing many basic tricks that were extremely exhilarating. Give it a shot! Bigger rush that zipline...

The location is absolutely beautiful! The trapeze rig is set up outside with a view to both the coast and to the 600' Diamante waterfall. This was my first time trying the trapeze and I enjoyed it so much I'm doing it at home too! I was a little nervous about the height and about if I'd have the strength to hang on to the bar and do anything (other than fall) but didn't have any issues once I started. Everyone was very encouraging and made it a really fun experience; even when the tricks didn't go exactly as they were supposed to. Jonathan was an excellent teacher! He gave me pointers/tips so that I was able to improve each time I went up the ladder.

Just awesome! Jonathan and his team are wonderful. My 7 and 9 year-old children and I took a two hour lesson while we were in the Dominical area. It was just a bit hard to find but the directions they give are very detailed and easy to follow. The staff was very professional and you can tell they just love what they do. The backdrop of this location makes it even that much more amazing. We will be back and who knows I might even sign up for one of their weeks away during the winter! Seriously - don't miss this!!

Jonathan and Chris made us feel right at home. I did not expect that we would get to try flying, but that is exactly what we did. After teaching us some basic skills, my 15 year old daughter and I both flew by trapeze to the safety of our amazing catcher. They were so very patient with my 8 year old that he got to give the trapeze a go as well. The drive up is beautiful and once you arrive it is like entering a magical little world. Very highly recommend this experience!

We stayed on site with Chrissy and Jonathon and did flying trapeze and aerial silks lessons. They were the perfect hosts, and we were served fresh delicious organic home cooked food every day.There was no need to find a restaurant as their food was of such high quality and it would have been disappointing to eat elsewhere. The room we stayed in was very comfortable and the house, aerial deck and trapeze has spectacular views of the waterfall and surrounding mountains. The climate is great for aerials; not too hot as it is in the mountains above the sea. Both are amazing aerial coaches and I got so much out of taking lessons with both of them. Chrissy is a world class aerialist and acrobat and travels all of the world to perform. Jonathon started Trapeze School New York and is great at coaching all levels of flying trapeze. There is plenty to do outside of aerials- hikes to waterfalls, surfing in Dominical and two national parks close by (Ballena and Manuel Antonia) to mention a few. This was our favourite area of Costa Rica as it is secluded without many tourists. You are also likely to see Costa Rican wildlife in their backyard. We stayed a week but could have easily stayed longer.
