“The Best Rush Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2012

My friend and I jumped here the day before we left Costa Rica. I was in complete panick mode as soon as we pulled up to the office. Once we were on the bridge the guys were able to get my mind off the situation with their humor. Both guys were fun to interact with - even their bungee jokes were making me at ease. This was only my second jump and I found this one to be easier. The scenery is amazing and, as someone else posted earlier after you're done you'll want to go again. I can't stop watching the free video they give you.

“Loved it!”

I had a great time. Jumping was such a thrill! The guides do a great job of making it a fun experience. They even have the group count down. You don't have time to freak out.

“You get the jump, you get the rush, you want to go again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

If you like adrenalin, you will love tropical bungee. It's not far from San José and the price is very good. I got there for my birthday, just a bunch of guys with an elastic rope in the middle of a bridge to nowhere. I got in the line, and couldn't stop smoking because of the excitement (which was a little bit more like panic). You wait on one of the sides of the bridge and see the people falling to the void, screaming their guts out every time. Then I was up. I got on the ledge and let go with a strong jump (it's a circa 240 feet jump). It was a long fall. I thought I would hit a rock, or the river bottom, and then the elastic rope gracefully takes you high up again. They tape a video and give it tou you in a mini dvd.

It was wonderful

“Fun even during the rain...some say even more so!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2011

These guys are indeed really cool and their English is great. They told me that they guarantee safety 200% and that I only need to be concerened about enjoying it. from my observation, they have a back-up cord, strapped to your waist, so in the unlikely case of breaking, you have another something to hang on. Also, the distance between fully extended bungee and the bottom of the valley is plenty, so you definitely not gonna plunge on your head. That was my first time and I would absolutely do it again and I had been scared out of my mind going in...I was the only person jumping that day too. Another cool thing, they make a video of the whole process and burn it for you on DVD right there, but also they give you an option to hold a special video cam while you are jumping. I took it but I messed it up because I accidentally turned it off. I hope you can do it better, that would have been a great footage. Enjoy!

“Pura Vida Adrenaline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

If u are looking for adrenaline bungee jumping will definitely give u that rush. All the workers were wonderful, very friendly and easy going. I felt very comfortable and safe. Would definitely do it again when I go back to CR. They picked us up at San jose and the took us to the airport after. Close to Alajuela so the travel time was not bad. Cost was reasonable I didn't get a tshirt which was fine but I was so surprised they included the video in the price. ALL tours I did not one included video or pics in the price. The view is amazing jumping off a bridge in the middle of the tropical forest and a river underneath. Was worth it and would recommend.
