“Spectacular experience”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We did the zip lining tour/mule ride/tequila tasting experience. It was an amazing adventure and excellent value. We were impressed by the fact that there were 12 zip lines included in the tour which provided you with a lot of opportunity to enjoy the spectacular scenery. The staff were professional and hilariously fun. We felt very safe, but also like there were opportunities to up the thrill factor if you were so inclined (e.g. ride backwards down the line).

“Great tour experience”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We just returned from our tour with Canopy River and found the experience excellent. This tour is great value for the dollars, and you get to adventure in some ideal quad riding, the zip lines and finish with the Mule ride back to camp. The animals were in good condition and very sound footed. The facility is located up in the hills, so you also get a bit of an adventure driving back from the tourist areas to see a different area of the country. The other bonus with this tour is its only 5 hours of your valuable holiday time, and we found the morning start very refreshing. I'd recommend shorts, but dressing in layers as it can be cool getting to the location. The various guides for each of the activities were very good, and dedicated to the safety of each participant. One’s level of fitness does not hinder your ability to participate in this venue (we’re in our early 50s). There were some hills to climb to reach the various zip line stages, but there was plenty of time and water was available. A person with knee/heart issues would have to evaluate their ability to participate. However, if one was concerned once they arrived, they have a beautiful hacienda area in which to relax. As well, from the hill tops of this tour facility you can see the Bay area….all in all, a great experience….

The guides are simply phenomenal! Entertaining and reassuring - especially for a big scaredy cat like me! The scenery was amazing! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone! One recommendation, if you have large hands, bring your own leather gloves as there weren't big enough gloves for two of the men in our group. This was problematic at the rappel/free fall.

“Thrilling and breathtaking!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Canopy River is a must when visiting Puerto Vallarta. From the beginning with the courteous bus driver to their facility a little over 5 KM from town, to the fun loving and gregarious staff you are made to feel very comfortable with this adventure that you are about to take. Safety is paramount. As you go higher and higher, the zip lines get longer and you go faster. Quite exhilarating. I have been on a zip line in Puerto Vallarta with another company and simply stated, there is absolutely no comparison.
