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

To me, this is what I think of when I think about Costa Rica ziplines. You're going through the treetops in an exciting way, viewing gorgeous scenery throughout. I think thiis (and all) ziplines in Guanacaste are going to be a touch better during the wet season, with the trees and shrubbery all green, along with flowing creeks. Just a... More

If you're travelling Costa Rica, a canopy zip line tour is a must. Combining flora and fauna with high adrenaline zip-lining through the jungle provides and incredible and racing experience. We saw two iguanas and a coati and our guides were very professional and informative. Inside tip: ask about an aussie rappell when doing the two rappells of the tour... More

This was such a fun day!! I felt so safe with our 2 amazing guides!! If you don't do this when you come to samara then you are missing out!! Amazing fun day with fresh fruit and water halfway through. We even had a visit from some native critters. Wonderful family run business! Thank you so much!
