Definitely recommend Sky Trek for anyone who wants a thrill seeking adventure that cuts across the mountain with a view above the rainforest, alongside the Arenal Volcano, and facing the lake. Guides like DelRio do a great job of making sure you're safe, having fun, and getting you through the speed & height of a roller coaster where your hanging by just a harness.

Unfortunately, Sky Trek/Tram picked us, and 2 other groups, unexpectedly late. While scheduling for a pickup for ~7am they arrived closer to 7:45am without calling any of the groups or hotels where groups were staying at. This is a problem because:
1) many people book this early tour so that they can do another activity in the afternoon since it is scheduled end around 12. Obviously, a late pickup runs the risk of missing a tour in the afternoon....and losing $ if you already scheduled it.
2) Breakfast at most hotels is not a sure bet before 7am. We ended up basically missing breakfast and frustrating our hotel that kindly tried to pack us breakfasts. All they had to do was call our hotel and we could have easily finished breakfast by 7:15.

In the end our frustration was mostly gone after having a good experience because of the excellent guides & service at Sky Trek/Tram. We were done by 11am and easily returned to our hotels before lunch. Sky Trek/Tram did not offer more of an apology after providing a quick explanation of why they were late. There are certainly reasonable explanations for what happened, but all they had to do was call each hotel & inform them of the delay and that it would not delay a lunchtime return. For a premium tour, they should provide premium service. Later on in the day Sky Trek/Tram refunded a portion of our costs only after our travel advisor from Pure Trek called about the poor service.

The Sky Trek/Tram ziplining at Arenal is the only zip line I've done, so I don't know how they do it at other locations, but at this one, they instruct you to lean back so you're horizontal, bend you knees so you're curled in a ball and then cross your ankles for good measure. Then off you go like a bullet. This positioning wasn't an optional thing - you had to do it that way in order to make it all the way across. My 16 year old daughter came up short two times because she lifted her head and I came up short once because the wind pushed me a little out of line which apparently slowed me down enough to come up about 10-15 feet short. What you do then, is turn yourself around facing away from the platform and pull yourself along, hand over hand, above your head. I will say that it does require a little arm strength. Having said that we did have a great time and I did feel safe despite the fact that you're flying across canyons. I'm just curious to know if the other zip lines are set up so that you ride in a more upright position - seems like that might be better for taking in the scenery - of course my eyes were shut the whole time! My 72 pound daughter rode with one of the guides because she was too light and she had a terrific time.

Took a great sky tram trip with the lovely guide Minor who is such a sweet and considerate guide. Sailing through the forest in a 5,249 feet ride was simply amazing and Minor made it all the memorable!

Just returned from Costa Rica and one of the adventure day trips in Arenal was to experience Zip Line fun with Sky Trek Adventure. Definitely would recommend this tour group! It was a blast. Freddie and Allan from Sky Trek Adventure were our guides. It was the best feeling flying through sky. Never scared! Amazing feeling. A must if you are in the Arenal. Freddie and Allan were really funny, but were excellent instructors full of interesting facts. Both Freddie and Allan are definitely assets to Sky Trek Adventure.
