“What a safe and fun thrill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

This zip line experience is a thrill ride through and above the tropical forest canopy. Pick up at hotel or cabina and hold on for the next two hours! Great for first-timers and repeat offenders! The staff, Marlon and Estebon are a great part of the experience. There humor and knowledge of local flora and fauna soothe the most timid of souls and turn this into a not-to-be-missed experience.

“Beautiful views, lots of laughs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Athica Tours picked us up at our hotel and delivered us in a timely fashion to their starting point. We knew there were 10 lines (the longest nearly half a mile) and a tarzan swing and that it would take a couple of hours at most. It was perfect for a first-time experience! Marlon and Estabon were great. Estabon took our camera and shot not only photos but also video. Marlon made jokes along the way and put everyone at ease. Along the way we saw armies of leafcutter ants, beautiful birds, and breath-taking vistas. Priced right...well worth your time and money!

“So much fun!”

This was our first time going ziplining as a family--our girls are 8 and 11. The guides were so funny and helpful. Most of us were pretty nervous about heights but this ended up being the highlight of our whole trip! A great experience for everyone!!!

“Great experience and breath taking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

We did the zipline with my 8 yr old kids. Marlon and Estabon took very good care and patiently explained the guidelines very simply. We felt very safe and enjoyed the thrill and the views. The tarzan swing was exceptional. The views were awesome. I highly recommend this tour in Arenal.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

My wife, son and I had a great time doing this zipline excursion while we were in Lafortuna last week. I had some reservations about doing this but they disappeared once we did our first canopy zipline. The guides took exceptional care to make us feel comfortable and clearly explained each and every step along the way. The view from atop of the trees was incredible which made this excursion well-worth the cost. I highly recommend this adventure!
