Zip Lines / Canopy Tours Age Limits

I am planning a Costa Rica trip and need to know if there are any age limits for the zip lines / canopy tours. There are children in the group. Also, if there is an age limit, is it possible to leave somebody behind with the kids while a group goes on the zip lines, then the adults switch. Basically, is there a place at the beginning of the zip lines where people can wait? I know there are a lot of zip lines, but does anybody have any feedback they might be able to provide. I have started e-mailing some of the zip line places as well.

thanks,

Dan

Hello Dan.

Most ziplines wont take kids under 6 years old but this depends a lot on the kid size, they are worried the kid isnt going to have enough weight to make to the other side, most times the guides will jump with the little kids on the lines. Where are you planning to visit. NATUREGUIDE

Some of the ZIP lines even go higher than 6 years old...up to 8 years old... I am talking about zip lines in Arenal...

We are definitely planning to stay in Arenal for a few days. We are still in the planning stages for the trip but plan to go for at least 10 days and want to have some beach time as well. We have a 4, 6, and 7 year olds going in our group. So far we have found this place will handle four year olds.

We have no issue if the guide has to share the line. We definitely want to do the zip lines, so we will stay somewhere that is able to accommodate us.

If we have to, we will split into two groups and take turns watching the kids.

thanks for all the advice, I appreciate it.

Regards,

Dan
