Owner description: The Mal Pais Canopy Tour is based in the quiet village of Malpais, on a farm with more than 200 different tree species, at the entrance of the Cabo Blanco Absolute Nature Reserve. The whole area is surrounded by rich tropical forest and diverse wildlife as well as many birds. Come and journey through the treetops, enjoying the tropical forest while the Pacific Ocean lies below you. The exciting canopy ride is nearly a mile long and has 11 platforms set high in the gigantic trees. Steel cables connect the platforms which are between 5 and 30 meters in height. You will not forget the experience of flying along our 300 meters long shot over a canyon between the second and the third platform, or the incredible 500 meters long ride through the jungle along a creek. This Canopy Tour in Costa Rica have professional nature guides that will accompany you on the unforgettable journey through the biodiversity of the environment. They will introduce you to the fascinating secrets of the forest.Following the strictest safety norms, you will enjoy thrilling views of the Pacific Ocean and of the forest from many different perspectives.

“Best Experience”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

This was one of our most favorite things we did in CR. We went as a family of 3 with our 8 year old who was a little tentative. The staff were encouraging and gentle with her. Sometimes she rode with them and sometimes she did it alone. We all laughed so much- the staff (Carlos and Chima (?)) were hysterical, very kind and made the adventure all the much better! They took our cameras and took lots of photos for us. I can't rave enough about our experience.

“Absolutely outstanding experience”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

This was an amazing experience. The guides were fantastic and seem quite adept at sizing up a group. They were funny and made the trip for us. The experience itself was safe and fun beyond our expectations. There were two kids in our group who were allowed to proceed as they were comfortable--sometimes with the help of guides. This will clearly be the fondest memory of this Costa Rica trip. I highly recommend this canopy tour.

We had the best time zip lining thru the canopy of Mal Pais. The crew took lots of pictures on our own cameras for us.

“A must do while here”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

Sooooooooo much fun! This was my first zip lining experience and could not have asked for a better one.... Fairly priced and the guys who ran the tour were soooo funny and made for an experience I will never forget. We brought our go pro with us and got some great footage. You get some beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding jungle. This is a must do while you are here in the area
