“Fun afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

This was a great activity after our week long mission. The guides were great! They made all of us feel safe and made sure we had a good time. They also borrowed our cameras to snap shots of the group while we were going down the lines. The facilities themselves were also nice. And they take you by jeep to the top of the lines so you don't have to worry about making the hike. It was a bit shorter than some of the other zip lines I have done, and you have to use your hand to break - but this is fairly common for zip lines in Latin America. We didn't see much wild life - the guides told us most of the monkeys and birds live on the other side of the mountain. However, there are plenty of biting ants! So make sure to wear closed shoes so they can't get to your feet!
This could probably be combined with a trip to the volcano and/or the crafts shopping if you were in smaller group.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

The level of safety was impressive, we were always attached to a safety line and were given clear instruction before the first run.
We were a group of eight with varying levels of adventurous spirit. For the more nervous the guys were very supportive, and for the rest of us they encouraged us to try different positions.... upside down monkey was the best!. The team did a fantastic job of taking photos of everyone with our own cameras and even managed to capture some videos of us in the more interesting zip-lining positions.
Zipping down a line being howled at by a howler monkey cannot be guaranteed but is an experience not to be missed. Everyone that did it agreed it was a great mornings entertainment

“Superb peeps, safe and fun lines, and cool location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Had never done ziplining but what a great place.
The setting was beautiful. There was line after line (not just a couple shorties and your done.) The guys there were funny, took pics for you with YOUR camera, and very diligent on safety. AND you are VERY safe with constant connection.
Don't miss this activity if you're even thinking about it.
They're bilingual, too (Eng and Span at least)

(Was with a group of 4 of us that work together doing humanitarian work beforehand.)

“What a blast!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Experienced Ziplining for the first time ever, and it was in the beautiful jungle setting of Nicaragua. We saw Howler monkeys on our way up to the start of the 9 line course. We were outfitted by competent and friendly staff who accompanied us on the runs. We were prepared with a safety lesson and did some trial runs on a very short line, so we had some degree of confidence when we went on our first 'real' line. The staff were great, and they encouraged us to try different positions such as "Superman" or "Super-Chica", tandem with a friend, going upside down, etc. Fun was had by all. I was part of a large group, and we really all bonded as we encouraged each other to get out of our comfort zone to try something new. The view is great up there.
There are other options at the Canopy Tour. For those who don't want to zip, there is a cantina and tables where a soft drink, coffee or beer can be purchased along with some snack foods. For those who want to go to the top of the extinct volcano, a vehicle will bring you up and I understand that the views from the top are incredible. I would visit again if given the opportunity in the future.
