We are staying in Playa Flamingo and we want to do the canopy tour for sure, any specific tour companies to use or stay away from?

We heard Canyoning would be a fun tour as well. Anyone try this excursion? thoughts?

There are a couple of options available to you for the Canopy tour. There is the Cartagena Canopy; about 45 minutes from Flamingo and the Congo Trail canopy, again about 45 minutes away. Both are excellent and reputable.

There's not a lot of canyoning nearby. There is a portion of canyoning available with the Guachipelin tour.

The whole family will enjoy this full day of adventure where you can try to participate in all the activities that you can in one day, going at your pace, and selecting your activities.  First you will go horseback riding for about an hour, then river tubing, then lunch, then Canopy Tour with an option section where you can do rock climbing, rappelling, suspended bridges, and a Tarzan Swing, then after all of that, you will go to the Simbiosis Spa area to enjoy a sauna, paint each other in warm volcanic mud and then relax in the hot springs.

Sailing is available out of Playa Flamingo or from Tamarindo. There are monohaul sailboats and catamarans to choose from. The catamarans include about an hour of snorkeling or kayaking during the tour. For just snorkeling, it is best done via a boat tour and there are several operators in the area.
