The people here are really friendly and the forest is beautiful. The cost of the ziplining was a little higher than it should have been for the length of the lines but it's a fun time none the less.

Greetings! Thanks for your comment. Well, our zip line is well worth since it has a lot of security and safety gear that others don´t have. Such as doble cable, controlled break, triple harness, and platforms with borders. We don´t offer fishing tours… Have a nice day! More

My husband and I enjoyed an afternoon at Rainforest Adventures. When we arrived I was a little put off by the huge bus load of elderly tourists that had arrived and thought our tour might be a cheap imitation rainforest thing. I was wrong! The crotchety old folks tottered off to do the trams or the butterfly gardens I suspect,... More

We enjoyed the tram ride to the top of the mountain and the narration given by the guide. The trip down the mountain was much more exciting with 10 zip line segments. This zip line is very doable for first timers, but still has enough speed and distance for experienced thrill seekers. The guides were excellent and very helpful in... More

We had a private tour for two couples. Our guide was Adrian who was very informative and very knowledgeable. We started with a tour of the butterfly garden and then toured their reptile exhibits. The Tranopy was a very relaxing ride and the sights were great. Very good for the whole family.

The Tram ride is perfect for those looking for something a bit more relaxing, as you cruise through the rainforest taking in the views and listening to the tour guide's perspective on nature and Costa Rica's culture.

Boring, extremally expensive and with no action... There are much better options in the area. There was no fauna in the tour and was extremally boring...

Thank you Jorge P for your opinion. It's sad to hear you haven't enjoyed our tour, the thing is it's worthwhile to people who really loves nature, and the thing with the fauna, is that we are not a zoo, so they really live freely. Have a nice day. More

We had booked the rainforest tour through Grayline for the Caribbean side. However, due to highway issues, we were taken to a private reserve on the Pacific side.
