Me and my 9 girlfriends had the best time with Javier and his crew. It was truly an amazing experience. Exhilarating and a highlight of our 5 day trip to Nicaragua. We felt 100% safe! Highly recommend this company!

My boyfriend and I did both. It was awesome. I have experience in both; bf did not. The crew made it fun and easy for both of us. The ziplining is fast, breathtaking, and simple. Recommend it for anyone with even a lower level of fitness and no major fear of heights. The rappelling was 165 feet down alongside a... More

We have 4 lids between 11 and 16. We had never done this before. Javier took his time, explained everything and gave encouragement to the kids. It was a great experience. Everyone should try at least once.

Arranged the rappel/zip prior to our arrival. Javier emailed me a few days before to confirm our pick up time in town. Traveled with my son and daughter, (age 30), son in law, and teenage son. The adventure began as Javier drove us up to the top of the hill and we got stuck in the mud. He remained calm,... More

My boyfriend and I recently visited Nicaragua and spent our first day in San Juan del Sur rappelling the waterfall with Aracne rappelling and then zip-lining. The staff was great and came picked us up from our Airbnb location with an hour of making a reservation (same day). I was a bit nervous for rappelling but the staff took time... More

I did the combo with the ziplines of DaFlyingFrog and it was great! Staff is very friendly and will take many pictures for you such that you can boast to your friends! They even offered themselves to make a video with my camera for me! As a single traveller, I was supposed to join a group of eight people who... More

I highly recommend this company to everyone! They are experienced, helpful, professional, and customer service oriented. I went with a group of 12 (nursing students and professors) and they were so patient with us. Both the ziplining and repelling were awesome experiences with beautiful views.

One of the best trips we have ever taken. We are staying at Casa de Cooper and did the repelling with Baldo. Great guide and knows what he is doing. We would highly recommend taking this excursion finishing with the zip line

It was our first time rappelling. The guides were really nice and insisted on security measures. Even though going down the 50 meter wall only takes a few minutes, the experience is worth the money as you'll get a unique feeling. Bonus: For history lovers, you'll get an interesting theory about the meaning of the main petroglyph by one of... More

I was unsure when booking the combined rappelling/zipline thing whether I was going t be physically able to do the "steep hike" between the two activities. He encouraged me to come check it out and in the end I decided just to do the zipline but he was very helpful in helping me make that decision. The zipline was awesome.... More
