This was the first time our boys have ridden horses and it was a great experience. Alex is so friendly and welcoming and creates a laid back atmosphere. Our guides were patient and helpful as we toured through the jungle and the horses were responsive and well behaved. Highly recommended, thank you Alex and team!!

The 360 degree view from the top of the mountain is incredible. Staff is devoted to safety, but they are also a lot of fun. This was the first time zip lining for me. Being above the jungle canopy, and then riding down right into the jungle was amazing. The howling monkeys in the background only added to the experience.... More

Thank you very much for the great review we appreciate.Yes our canopy zipline is more like an eco adventure rather than a short zipline like in Maui. Our canopy has 10 lines 9 platforms, each one unique & super fun. You zip over 33 acres of pristine jungle & you may well fly past our howler monkeys eating berries or... More

We were in Costa Rica for my son's destination wedding. I was arranging the rehearsal dinner and chose Alex's Black Stallion. I inquired on the website about what we were looking for and Alex called me within 15 minutes. We discussed the dates and what we were looking for. He was very accommodating. They have a Fiesta BBQ and they... More
