“Raining in the rainforest”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

It was raining when we arrived but cleared when we boarded the tram. Interesting and we got to see a few birds. It is a tram that goes up the side of the rainforest. Not very thrilling but a nice ride.

“Worth Every Penny”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

We bought the Aerial Tram/Zip Line Excursion package from HAL while cruising on the MS Veendam. From the beginning it was outstanding. A very nice bus took us to the rain forest entertained the entire time by our guide for the adventure, Rhyan. He was everything you'd want in a tour guide, especially one who has responsibility for about 50 senior citizens zip lining for the first time. The entire crew was so proficient and conscientious; no one was ever scared. It was tons of fun and my husband, who was very unsure of this, loved it as you can see from the photo. We'll always cherish our memory of this gorgeous rain forest and this great facility in it and the great people like Rhyan and his crew who made our adventure so special.

“Rain rain”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

My wife and I were there in October. It rained like cats and dogs... We had to buy rain ponchos from the gift shop... $10 for a plastic poncho. If you go, be prepared with a rain jacket and hood.

The tram ride went way up the side of the mountain with views of the forest and waterfalls. I expected that it would rise above the canopy to give a grand view, it did not.

The garden tour was ok, it was tough in the rain.

The guide was very nice and very knowledgeable.

Lunch was better than I expected. Tasty and plentiful.

“Great Fun for a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

We wanted to do a zip line and were thinking of doing the one in Carrera but when we talked to the tour guy at our hotel he sold us on this one. We were at the Best Western in Jaco. it was a 10-15 minute ride to the area. The reception area was very nice and inviting and we were greeted by really nice people. We had a blast! First we got our gear, they taught us what we needed to know, and then we took a 20-25 minute gondola trip up the mountain and through the rain forest. We saw some beautiful scenery including two waterfalls. We got off and were instructed where to go by a really nice group of guys. They were all young and knew their stuff which made us all feel good. The first 3 zips were relatively short and they gave us confidence as the guides helped us stop and land. Then the zips got really long and were so much fun. My husband is in his 70's and I'm in my mid 60's and we were having as much fun as the young kids. This is a must do in Jaco. We also got a guided tour through their area that was beautifully landscaped and they had some aquariums with the snakes of the region. It was also really interesting! A truly fun day!
