The van trip from our Riu Guanacaste resort was interesting as the guide informed us of aspects of Costa Rican culture, economy, environmental issues, education, etc. The final 4 kilometers to the Rio Perdido property are on a barely passible road. Glad we had a experienced driver for that part of the trip.
The structure that is anchored to the mountain wall is a marvel of engineering. Thinking about how they managed to get the materials and machinery to that location made one admire the skill of the construction team.
The zipline/canopy tour was very fun. Somewhat challenging for most in our group as there are some short vertical climbs up rock faces with permanent metal step imbedded in the rock. The zipline guides were great. They always were careful to use safety cables to make the adventure comfortably exciting. The cables are made from carbon fiber so they make the ride quieter than some of the other operations.
Our group of 7 were the only guests at the time. The staff outnumbered us by a big margin. All were friendly. Food was good. The time relaxing in the natural hot river and the man-made pools felt good after the canopy adventure.
