“Ecoglide Lafortuna Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

First time on a zip line and I am well over 60. Professional and exciting in every way. Pickup and drop off were on time. Each person is trained before the taking on the real lines. The personnel were great and several are with you the entire time. The actual zip lines have two cables versus just one, extra safety. Don't skip the Tarzan swing; it will take your breath away. This is a great 2 hours of fun. I was with 2 other people so we moved right along.

“Just go hiking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Since I'd never been ziplining I decided to try it out. I have nothing against the staff, who were great, but it just doesn't seem like this activity is worth paying for. If you're looking for great views, go hike up a mountain instead-- it's cheaper, more satisfying, and more adventurous.

“Amazing experience.... Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

This was an unforgettable experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This company has some of the best and safest equipment around. We were trying to decide between Ecoglide and Skytrek, but went with Ecoglide because it was almost half the price and had a lot more recommendations. The Tarzan swing was also a big plus. I highly recommend this tour, even if you are a little afraid, because you won't regret it after. This is a must-do while in costa rica.

“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Our family of 6 loved this activity. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and the zip lines were great with many of them having great views. The high point for most of us was definitely the tarzan swing... scary to contemplate, but so much fun (in fact, we even ended up buying the $30 DVD at the end of the trip, as we wanted to have recorded evidence of everyone's reaction to the sudden drop!); although for my husband the high point was that he actually got to ride a zip line through a rainbow. Our daughter had been on another Arenal zip line last year, and thought this one was much more fun (more lines, more variation in the lines, and the tarzan swing). The only negative is that we felt that the group size was too big, resulting in some waiting before the first line and on several platforms along the way. Overall, a good trip and worth the money.
