I did my first bungee jump here along with eight other people. It was amazing: the view from the bridge was incredible, and jumping off was the most surreal and incredible feeling. Two of our group loved it so much, they jumped a second time that afternoon! The staff were great about explaining everything and making sure we were each safely ready to jump. They picked us up at a designated spot in San Jose and drove us back, so we didn't have to worry about how to get there. Definitely worth it.

Tropical Bungee is definitely for the adventure traveler. Once you jump there is no holding back and you feel like you are going to crush into the ground but as reality struck you are bouncing up and down and saying to yourself WOW! Did I just just jump off that bridge? It personally it gave me an awakening of reality and life and definitely recommend it at least once in a life time.

I booked this for my 18 yr old son to celebrate his graduation. I booked online mid may for a jump that was to take place last Friday, Aug 2. About 2 weeks prior to our trip, my 15 yr old decided he also wanted to jump, so I sent an email and it was confirmed by Tropical Bungee that both kids are set to jump on aug 2, and we'd be picked up at our hotel at 1pm. We were coming from Manuel Antonio, so we got up, drove 2.5 hrs to get checked into our hotel so we were in the lobby at 1pm. By 1:30 no one showed, so I called the number on the confirmation and got a voice mail. We waited til 2 and called again, still a voice mail. I sent them an email asking what happened and got a response on Saturday that there were no jumps that week due to bridge inspections. I'm all for safety, but if there were no jumps all week, this could have been communicated to us so we could have stayed in Manuel Antonio for the day rather than rush to San Jose, only to sit around all afternoon.

Now, my boys were pretty bummed as this was to be a highlight of their trip, so I sent another email on Saturday asking if there were to be any jumps on Wed, Aug 7, since we didn't fly out until later in the day. I didn't receive a response, so I resent the email on Monday, never did get a response.

Pretty surprising, as I've read such great things about this company. I guess if you decide to book with them, make sure you have a backup plan incase they don't show up.

I literally went bungee jumping this morning and it was SO MUCH FUN! They were so quick at setting everything up, but they also didn't skimp on making sure everything was safe & explaining everything clearly! Definitely very professional and fun! I'm so happy I did this and I know you will be too! This will not be the last time I go bungee jumping :)

Great place to bungee. The staff is friendly and will make you laugh. The bungee itself is really fun. Great place for first timers!
