This may be the best $45 you spend per person on a Costa Rican activity. The guides are fun, friendly, and knowledgable. The gear is in fantastic operating order. The course is extensive and beautiful...and it's a really good time.

This tour is great for first-timers, like myself, and people who already know they love zipling (as others on my tour).

After being fitted with 3-point harnesses, helmets, and gloves, a short hike lead us to the first activity. This Tarzan Swing was thrilling, and quickly gives the guides a good idea of who may be more apprehensive, which allowed them to grant greater personal attention to the customers we moved forward.

From there we traveled line after line through the rainforest and climbed up into a stranger fig as part of the adventure course. Our group was comprised of customers ranging in age from early 20s to late 50s and everyone completed the course with a smile on their face.

I would do this tour again and I will recommend it highly.

For some reason our hotel tried to steer us towards one of the newer bigger faster canopy rides (higher booking commissions?) but we went for the "original" to get more authentic experience and because of trip advisor ratings. We were not disappointed. Staff was excellent and patient. Canopy was amazing. As a bonus, spotted a few agoutis and even a group of howler monkeys on hike up to first platform. 2nd last zip of 800 meters was a total thrill. Guide took my camera and took lots of great pics of us until batteries ran out!

We have done other canopy tour/zip line excursions, but this was our absolute favorite. The addition of the Tarzan swing, repelling, and climbing the fig tree really completed the experience! Another wonderful aspect was the guides, and the small group 3 friends, that did it alone. The whole experience is something that I would love to do again! We highly suggest this zip line tour!

We went as a group of 5 friends and spend 3 hours and 40 dollars in there.
It was an amazing axperience and we don't regret it at all.
The staff was nice and the activities were awesome:
you can swing like Tarzan
Zip-line
Climb up inside a strangler fig tree
Rappel
and it ends up with a 800m zip line from a hill to another with a marvellous view.
We Strongly recommend it.

We picked this canopy tour since we are not crazy about "extreme" sports while still want to enjoy the adventure above the trees. Our two guides are very friendly. We had fours parts of tours: The big "swing", zip line for beginners, rappel and climb the tree and zip line advanced. I liked the Rappel and clime up inside the tree the most. The staff helped us taking photos and emailed us pics and videos of our tour as promised after we were back home. Highly recommended.
