We used Alex on the Beach (I will do a separate review) to book a private ATV and Congo Trail Canopy Tour. We left the beach near Riu Guanacaste and had a great tour guide named John. We were given the option to zip-line first or visit the beaches first. We choose the zip-line first. The zip-line is located in a tropical dry forest surrounded by tall trees. After a 15 minute ride along some back roads we arrived and were checked in and given all the rules and received our gear. Before the adventure started they offered a picture CD for only $30. The pictures are decent for the camera they are using. We had 51 pictures and 4 videos of our experience. We saw howler monkeys while up in the canopy. They do not like the sound of the zip-line so they try to be louder than the sound. It was very entertaining. We did not do the extreme zip-line but had a great time. There were 11 runs and 3 hanging bridges. This was our first time zip-lining so we have nothing to compare it to but we had fun. After the excursion you pay for your CD in the gift shop and they have your CD ready in 15 minutes or so. I appreciated that I was allowed to look at the content before it was packaged.
When we left the Congo Trail we visited two beaches (Penca Beach - white sand and Potreros Bay - dark sand), a bar (Las Brisas Bar), and a mountain top (Pacific heights) before returning to the resort.
If you have any questions please to not hesitate to ask.
TIPS: You can bring your own camera or GoPro for a great experience. If you are out of shape the walking to the first run can be be tiring but its worth it. The animal rescue is a great deal for only $5. The CD is a great deal for $30. Make sure you do the Superman on the next to last run.
