A little leary about safety and the cost at first, we couldn't be more entertained and satisfied with this experience. These 5 guys not only made sure everyone was safe and prepared, they were entertaining and accommodating. When the amount of hiking was a little surprising, they knew how to handle the 'less-than-Jack LaLane' types.
We'd do it again in a heartbeat - be it a little faster than normal heartbeat.

My hubby had the biggest smile on his face THE ENTIRE TIME we were on our tour. The guys were completely professional and took safety into consideration first, but made sure we were having fun as well. Arturo & Raphael were freaking hilarious!!! Those two guys made the tour more than worth it!! Our pictures from "the Paparazzi" were perfect, how else can you get a picture of yourself zipping through the mountains!? We decided to have a drink (and shots) with a snack afterward at the restaurant before we headed back to the resort - and it was a perfect way to finish off our day with the ATV/Zipline crew. Wear clothes and shoes you don't mind getting dirty - because it will happen. Bug spray is a must too. I can't wait to come back!!!

Wanting to zip line for years and fear always bringing me home without doing it, I decided it was time to put my fears aside. The crew at Canopy River make you feel relaxed and confident in their ability to give you a fun safe experience. After the first 2 lines your confidence will grow and you won't belive you are actually doing it! I did the canopy/horseback and ATV tour. It was the funest excursion I have ever done. Warning: There are some steep uphill walks to the next platforms on the first few. With bad knees, I didn't know this in advance. I powered through the pain because you can't go backwards only forward to the next line. I was worth a little pain for the experience! If in Puerto Vallarta this is a must do.

I very highly recommend this attraction. The zipline, mules and food was well above average and a must do ! Take tennis shoes and dark clothes ! The nachos and quesadillas are fantastic and the people very good at their job! The photos options were very over priced and disappointing but will go again! The tequila tasting was awesome with a great chocolate tequila that is to die for!

This tour was absolutely the best tour we tour we took in Mexico!!! Our 5 year old ziplined through the jungle in the arms of the fantastic guides!! They all treated her like royalty! We all loved the donkey ride up the mountain after the numerous wicked zip lines!! This was the best!!! The four wheeler tour was awesome, as well. It was a totally jam packed day!!! The staff were first class!! Thanks guys for a day to remember Raphael, Miguel, Jerry, & Joshua!!!
