This is a great way to spend a few hours. Lots of fun zip lining, with a break half way for a drink and a snack on a platform high in a Guanacaste tree looking over Samara bay. The guides clip you in for every zip line so you never have to worry about doing it properly. Our guide Jascha,... More

We decided to zip line with Wing Nuts again, mainly because it was conveniently located to downtown Samara and because our kids had good memories of it . Also, their website promotes a 25% discount for repeat customers (if you visit again within a year). The good: They have added a couple runs and a second rappel, which was a... More

It was our first zip line/canopy tour. Just a short drive from Samara by shuttle. A family-run business that is very professional and low-key, with ten zip lines and a couple of great ocean views. It included a tree-top rest-stop for a snack of fresh fruit and juice and a visit from at least one local coati. We had full... More

Loved this excursion! Staff are very safety conscious but fun. They took videos of us and provided good information about the wildlife and the area.

The best, the guides are friendly and informative. the settings amazing. They even invited some of the local wildlife up for our canopy lunch to snack on some fruit with us :) I've road the zip line in three different countries and have to say this has been my best experience Thanks guys from Fiona and I

We had a blast, well worth the $60 price tag. Our group was 3 adults, two seniors, and a 4 year old. Everyone had a great time. My only suggestion is that our group was too big it felt longer than necessary sitting and waiting on the platforms. The whole tour took several hours because there was so much waiting.... More

We selected this canopy tour based on reviews and were not disappointed. We had our 8 year old with us that is actually afraid of adventure and heights but they handled him well. He really enjoyed it. My only concern after returning and giving it some thought, I realized that we didn't have helmets or have a double line for... More

This was my favourite activity while visiting Costa Rica. I've wanted to go zip-lining for years and was happy to have waited to experience such a fun adventure in this environment. Our guides Manu and Rene were very professional and kind. All fear was replaced by excitement after zipping down the first line and by the tenth and last, I... More

We really enjoyed it. Manu (spelling?) and Rene were good fun and very professional. The equipment looked good quality (e.g. Petzl harnesses). Eating fresh pineapple with Boris (a huge iguana) on a platform 20m up a tree was pretty cool. The 2 high speed abseils (rappels) were pretty exciting. Rene was also good enough to send us some photos he... More
