While on the canopy tour you will see a number of plants and animals unique to Costa Rica, possibly including howler and white-faced monkeys, parrots, iguanas and much more. During the tour we stop at the famous waterfalls where you can take pictures and go for a swim in the pools carved by the cascading waters.

Reviewed June 15, 2012

This tour is spectacular! We had a mixed group of experienced zip liners and several that had never done it! The staff is very patient and encouraging! They take photos and do a video for purchase at the end ($20) and it is well worth the price. The trip to the waterfalls is amazing! The steps up can be a bit tough though if you are out of shape like I am LOL. This is a must do!

“Great experience!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

This was a lot of fun! For $40, it is a tad overpriced, but still worthwhile.

After the first group of platforms, they take you down to one of the waterfalls. You only have a limited amount of time, so don't waste it standing around! Jump in! It's definitely deep enough and you'll want to hop on that rope swing before the others in your group spot it.

Speaking of groups, it'd be nice if they put a tighter cap on group size. Waiting in line on the platforms got old, especially if you are put with a loud group of Jersey Shore types.

The hike from the falls back to the next platform is not for the overweight or extremely out of shape, trust me. If you are hesitant after that statement, then don't go. It is steep and demanding. If you are of average fitness, you'll be fine.

The guides are all very kind and patient and they even give everybody a cold bottle of water at the end.

Stunning views and thrilling speeds. Do it!

“So beautiful - well worth it!”
Reviewed May 30, 2012 via mobile

15 minute van ride to Sun Trails from Montezuma (they pick you up in town). Friendly staff, beautful views. 45 minute break at an amazing swimming hole between two waterfalls (there is a rope swing too!). All in all well worth the $40.

“Flying through the air with the greatest of ease!”
Reviewed May 3, 2012

This canopy tour was spectacular. The scenery is stunning and you have plenty of opportunity to get the hang of ziplining (pun intended!) as there are eleven or twelve platforms to break up the ride. The staff was very professional and helpful. We were all new to ziplining and they made us feel comfortable trying this for the first time - my kids were naturals at this - I needed extra coaching on braking as you approach the platforms and the staff was very patient. A photographer goes out with the guides and the group and takes candid photos and videos. I'm not one for buying these at tourist excursions but I do recommend it in this case. It was great fun looking at the still shots and the videos of each of us as we approached the platforms. The DVD with your photos and videos also includes a number of great photographs of Costa Rica nature and animals. Well worth the price.
