Highlights
Active travelers will enjoy this adventurous tour through the forest
See a cloud forest, from its old growth to new growth
Hotel pickup and drop-off is included
Choose between a morning or afternoon departure time
What to expect
Meet your guide at your hotel prior to your selected morning or afternoon departure time and head to a private reserve and adventure park, located just minutes from downtown Monteverde. Your tour begins in the primary, old-growth section of the cloud forest and moves to the newer secondary forest, offering a broad perspective of life cycles in the forest. Start your trip with a zipline tour over the canopy, providing a heart-pounding view of the cloud forest below. Then, rappel 150 feet down to the forest floor. A ladder system through the hollow core of an old tree brings you back up into the treetops, and an optional Tarzan swing free-fall experience brings you back down. Guides accompany you through every step of the adventure to ensure your safety and entertainment, as well as to answer questions about the local ecosystem. Get dropped off back at your hotel or other specified drop-off location in Monteverde at the end of your adventure.

Great Tour— Mario is an awesome guide!
Jun 2021 • Family
I had an exceptional experience on this tour. my sister and I drove ~2 hours each way for the Manual Antonio for the nature walk and it was well worth it. Our tour guide Mario was awesome— he was very knowledgeable and engaging, and he had an eye for spotting things you’d never see in the park without a guide. We saw and learned about sloths, monkeys, birds, insects, lizards, butterflies, and more. Without a telescope, you wouldn’t get anywhere near the full experience offered by Manual Antonio. I highly recommend this tour and Mario!

Jun 2021 • Couples
This was a great experience. Zip lining over the forest was gorgeous. We lucked out and had perfect weather. During the tour we saw a big black snake, ant eater and something else that I don't remember what they called but it was like a big raccoon. They had a really big swing that was part of the tour and you also get to crawl up the middle of a ficus tree which was pretty cool. I would for sure recommend the tour.

Ziplined over Howler Monkeys! Amazing views and safe!!
One of the coolest experiences our family has ever had in a tour. Being on top of the jungle canopy gave us incredible views and the ziplines were long and fast. And the tree climb and rapelling was icing on the cake ! I liked that the Orignal Canopy was a more private experience for our family and was not touristy. We highly recommend this company, they were professional and provided us excellent photos of our experience. Highlight of the trip was ziplinging over a family of Howler monkeys. Doesn't get much better than that!

Exciting for Young and Not So Young
This tour was super exciting for our kids (teens/early 20’s) and it eased the parents in so we enjoyed it and were able to finish the whole course.

The staff, especially David Medina, was super friendly and reassuring to those who needed it and offered additional challenges for the ones who wanted them.

They start with a free-fall swing, then with a few short zip lines to get people aquatinted with the process.

The runs get significantly longer and faster as you go through the 2-hour course. The runs go from a few hundred feet to a half mile across a deep, mountainous canyon at 50 mph.

The Rappel portion is super fun, but requires a climb up a challenging ladder to get back into the tour.

Highly recommend!

May 2021
My friend and I went on this tour and were very nervous going into it. It turned out to be so much fun and totally safe. The guides were funny and made us feel comfortable. They made sure that we got photos and videos. The views were beautiful. I liked that it was a quick couple hours so we had the rest of the day to make other plans. If you are looking for a canopy tour, look no further!

We had an absolute blast on this tour. Bring high energy and the ladder climb was a little scarier than we thought—but the guides are awesome and encouraging and it’s so worth it! One of our favorite experiences in Costa Rica!

Awesome time
May 2021 • Couples
Had a terrific time and we’ll worth the time and money. Great staff, very friendly and fun. Felt safe the entire time. Never felt rushed and plenty of time to enjoys the vistas from the tops of the trees.

I have some experience climbing and repelling and they knew their equipment very well. Tarzan swing was great. We had some people in our group who were a little freaked out about the Tarzan swing and rappelling and our guides were super patient and applied no pressure. In the end all our group did both after seeing other people go.

Had my cell phone and shot video and pictures - they were cool about that. But I still bought the pictures they shot, because they did an awesome job and looked great. I thought their picts were very affordable all things considered. And they let you see them on a screen before deciding to buy.

Must go!
Apr 2021
Small groups, very friendly guides, spoke English very well, great views, and most of all it was a super fun time! Both of our guides were fantastic. Platforms were within the trees and not just towers built on the ground. Multiple zip lines through the forest and also above. Tarzan swing was a great warm-up!

Great fun, competitively priced
Apr 2021
A great couple of hours with this company and their staff. We had the pleasure of Gerald and Keiver. Gerald was a fantastic instructor mixing a bland of professionalism, humour and overall friendliness. He also spoke good English which was helpful to the rest of the people on the tour. Keiver was a good wingman. Thank you for an enjoyable day and for keeping us safe.
