“Best ziplining package in Costa Rica”
Reviewed December 4, 2007

We just returned from our Panama Canal Cruise. One of our stops was in Puntarenas, Costa Rica where we independently set up our own tour with Hotel Vista Golfo to go ziplining. They met us at the Cruise Ship and transported us to this beautiful quiet resort in the mountains overlooking the ocean. We then saddled up on horses to take us to the first zipline about a 45 minute ride and by no means were these horses trail horses, they wanted to go for a ride. We did the Canopy over 11 Waterfalls with 25 Zips and 2 great repels. We have Ziplined in Belize and Colorado near the Royal Gorge and this was by far the best we have done. We were able to swim at one of the waterfalls, which was refreshing for those that took advantage of it. When we finished they served us a great meal then took us back to the cruise ship after making a quick stop to buy coffee beans at a local store. This was truly a great experience and worth doing. We are thinking about renting one of there rooms and taking our kids back to vacation.

Definitely worth the trip, although while traveling you think the road will never end. The last 3-5 miles are uphill and unbelievably curvy. The hotel itself is typical Costa Rican - hospitable staff, mostly clean and comfortable rooms, and good food. The views from the hotel are amazing, when the clouds clear.

I have been to Costa Rica 7 times, and what sets this place apart is the zip line tour. The adventure is just as promised, a 45-minute horseback ride to over 20 zip lines and two rappels over dozens of breathtaking waterfalls. The guides are helpful and friendly, making this definitely the best Costa Rican adventure we've done. Going during the rainy season means the waterfalls are raging, making it all the more exciting

If you are an extreme adventurer, then this is the canopy tour for you. It is 3 activities rolled into one price. A 45 minute horseback ride, then 25 cables (with two rappels) traversing over 11 beautiful waterfalls cascading down the mountain, followed by a delicious lunch. The bilingual staff is very experienced and very friendly. This canopy tour is only an hour 1/2 from Jaco. It's very scenic and well worth the drive. Don't let your hotel fool you to think that it's further, like ours tried to do. They will also provide transportation to and from your resort for an additional fee if you want/need.

We spent 3 wonderful nights at Hotel Vista Golfo above Miramar during our 3 week trip to Costa Rica. It was a highlight of the trip.

Vista Golfo is a small, family-owned hotel and adverture park. The porch of our room overlooked the gardens, swimming pool, lobby and restaurant. Beyond that was a beautiful view of the gulf in the distance.

The lobby is covered by a huge tree and you can sit in one of the rocking chairs to watch the sun set over the gulf. At the restaurant we felt like we had our own private chef. The food was incredible and the presentation was a good as any cruise ship we have been on.

Our room had ample space and was very clean. Fresh flowers appeared daily on the small table. No need for airconditioning as the temperatures cooled off in the evening. There was a television and coffee maker in the room. (We mentioned one evening that we were out of coffee filters and by the time we got back to the room, they were already there.) The cost was less than $70 per day and included breakfast.

The 1st night only 1 other room was occupied; the 2nd night, 2 others. The last night (Saturday) there were more people. During the day 'Turismo' vans arrived bringing visitors to enjoy the adventure park. There is a canopy tour, ATV tours, horseback riding, climbing wall, etc. None of this detracted from the peacefulness of the area. We enjoyed simply hiking down to the waterfall on the property or relaxing in a hammock.

Barbara, one of the owners, arranged a day tour to an orchid company for us and also provided transportation. She said the next time we visit just let her know what we want to do and she would make all of the arrangements. All of her staff made certain that we were enjoying ourselves.

If it sounds like we were impressed with Hotel Vista Golfo, we were! We would definitely stay there again.

  • Liked — The peacefulness of the area and the attentiveness of all of the staff.
