We looked online for lots of family-friendly places in the area before choosing Sky Adventures, and we're so happy we chose this place. We didn't hear a single description of any other place while in Costa Rica that made us wonder whether we'd missed something better. While there may be less scary (in theory) places than this for kids, the fact that this place is run so well and everything is so smooth, safe, and easy makes it work.
We went with our 8 year old son and our nervous 10 year old daughter. My son actually went first on all the zip-lines, going with the first guide who had to set up to receive everyone on the other end. My daughter got paired up with other kids to get the right amount of weight. Apparently if you are too small you won't make it all the way up the other side (the lines sag down since they are so long). They always put the smaller kids together to get them across, and there were no complaints!
My daughter was a bit scared upon arriving at the third zip-line, the highest one. But they combined her and sent her off without trouble, and after that, she was ready for anything!
You can watch HD videos of the ziplines on YouTube is you want to see it all beforehand, but you will not be disappointed. All the guides were great, energetic, friendly, thoughtful, and encouraging. This was the most fabulous outing of our entire week long trip. We wish we had time to do it again!
We booked it from Arenal Lodge Hotel with the SkyAdventures transit - they were very easy to deal with, pickup to dropoff.
