“Zip Line tour was fantastic”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Thank you to Jorde, Rapheal, Mario, and the rest of the crew for their efforts to make our zip lining adventure unforgettable! It was the first time 3 of the 4 of us zip lined and they made all of us very comfortable. We had a blast with these fellas!!

“a great time and whirlwind of activities”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Had a great time. had many first here. First in white water, first on horseback, first in hotsprings...etc. It was well worth the money. the highlight for me was the white water tubing. Zipline was nice mostly because of the jungle views.

“A MUST DO!!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Took a day away from the beaches and pool to enjoy some Adrenaline on the zip lines and waterfalls. Spectacular scenery and amazing people made this a highlight for my entire family. First time for all of us zip lining, and we felt complete confidence in the guides / instructors as well as the equipment. I was thoroughly impressed with how the Staff (with limited English) responded and took care of my kids (ages 8 and 10). They were never forced into an activity, but took part willingly and wish that the day would never end. The end of the day - relaxing in the mud baths - was a perfect finish for everyone. So great to get out of the resort (although amazing) and indulge in the natural beauty of Costa Rica and it's people. I just wish we had more time for more of this trips. Will be the highlight of the trip for years to come....

“Absolutely Incredible!!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We did the full day adventure tour- zip line, horseback riding, water tubing, hot springs/mud bath- it was such a fun day! All the guides are incredibly nice and helpful. Safety was clearly very important to everyone and even flying through the air over a river, never once did I think something bad would happen. We were a family of 5 and all in relatively good shape and we were definitely exhausted after the day was over but the other people in the group ranged in age and athletic ability and it never seemed like anyone was struggling or couldn't handle it. There were certain areas that you could skip (rock climbing/rappelling) which a lot of people did. I personally went for it and wow was I tired after climbing up the rock (in a harness the entire time, again, safety first) but I'm definitely glad I did it. The hot springs and mud bath was the perfect way to end the day and rest our tired muscles. We all would definitely come back here and again, I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff.

I should mention that you do not have to do the entire adventure tour you can just pick individual activities to participate in so if you don't have a lot of time but still want to do one thing do not hesitate to visit!

Thank you very much for your review, it will be very helpful for all readers, we feel very hapy that you enjoyed every activity included in the full day adventure tour, and yes, as you said, ending all the activities at the mud baths and natural hot springs is the perfect ending.Also as you mention, our activities are for all ages, everybody enjoys them, and our guides will always be worried of safety. It will be a pleasure to have you again with us.

“Simply the best!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife had fractured her foot just before our Costa Rican trip and we feared that our day at Adventure Tours would be a washout. A quick phone call in advance and the crew put together a modified day to accommodate her air-cast. Upon arrival we were met by Juan who happily greeted us and explained the days activities, his sense of humour set the pace for what would be an awesome day. After some show & tell with the on site paramedic who checked out my wife's boot, it was off to the zip lines. Elmer, Carlos & Jordi were fantastic ensuring that the missus thoroughly enjoyed every zip line, she was able to do everything but hang up side down and the free rappel. A horse back ride to the waterfalls followed, and then it was time for a wonderful buffet lunch. We had to opt out of tubing and the second zip line, but a tour of the snake exhibits with Allan was substituted in. While snakes wouldn't normally be high on my list of things to do, Allan was absolutely incredible! He is knowledgable, passionate, and dedicated to these reptiles so much so that despite being bitten by a poisonous snake a few days earlier, he laughingly told us of the experience and felt that now he achieved valuable insight by being bitten!

I should also mention that the hacienda is gorgeous, other staff are plentiful and helpful, and that Hacienda Guachipelin is a first rate company that is worth every penny of your vacation dollar...highly recommmended.
