This tour was everything it is advertised as. It is so much fun! First they took us horseback riding and the trail must've been about 3 miles. We went through valleys, mountains, even a little river on the horses. Then we went zip lining, 7 lines, and one you even had the option to do upside down if you wanted. The last 2 lines you had to hike a bit to reach them but once you got to the top they had water for you because it was SOO hot that day. After zip lining was over, we went to eat lunch, a typical Costa Rican meal, then finally, we went to the hot springs and mud baths. So much fun, worth the money. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
This tour was absolutely amazing! It was well worth the money, which was not expensive at all. Our first time Ziplining and WE LOVED IT! The scenery was gorgeous. Horseback riding and the mineral springs was awesome as well. The lunch provided was delicious! Make sure to take extra clothing.
This tour was amazing! We had a blast. The tour guide Ray was awesome and very knowledgeable. The owners were very hospitable and the lunch was fantastic! Had a blast zip lining and even went upside down on one line. horseback rode through a river. Would definitely book again!
Vida Aventura is extremely difficult to find! It took us over 3.5 hours to get here from La Fortuna, but when we got here it was such a beautiful place that we instantly forgot about how frustrating it was to get here. I highly recommend you getting picked up from your hotel!
The grounds are very picturesque - there seems to be an endless amount of land on this property. We first had a horseback ride through much different terrain compared to the ones near Arenal Volcano. There was so much space available that we galloped through the countryside before entering an area where there were more trees and a stream where the horses drank water from. I lost my hat through all the galloping, so just be careful and make sure yours is tightly on.
We then did the zip lining. It was my first time, and I was very appreciative of the fact that the guides were very patient and polite to us. The tour includes a lunch, which was their typical meal of rice, beans, plantains, chicken, a salad, and a drink. After lunch, we went on our own to the Hot Springs and to do the mud bath. I think for the tour they would stay with you until the end, but we didn't really get a real tour for the hot springs and mud bath since we were basically the only ones here that day. They let us roam off and enjoy the area ourselves. All in all, I really enjoyed this package!
It was so much fun! Honestly I have absolutely no complaint about this excursion. You'll have all the adventure with zip lining and the horse back riding, and then relax in the Hot Springs w/ complimentary facial! . The guides were funny and very nice.
This tour was so much fun! We started with zip lining in which the staff was super helpful. We then went horseback riding--fun! Afterwards we had lunch which was delicious. Lastly, we did the mud bath.(not actual bath) and thermal pool. Remember to pack sneakers, bathing suit, towel, flip flops!
The staff that run the tour do a fantastic job making this a unique and friendly experience. The views were amazing from the zipline and horseback. The lunch provided was very tasty. I would highly recommend it.
Our tour was amazing! This was our first time doing the zipline and I highly recommend it if you've never done it before. Excellent! Horseback ride was a great experience and the mud n springs was super cool. The costa rican lunch was wonderful and our tour guide Alex was the best!
I took my two boys and we all had a fantastic day!!! Everything we did was fun and first class. It was great to do so many activities all in one place. I highly recommend!!!
Our tour was amazing! The area was beautiful and the zip line was fun. Our tour guide was informative and funny. You definitely want to bring a change of clothes, closed toed shoes, and long pants for horse back riding. We enjoyed the hot springs and relaxed at the end.
I had a fabulous tour guide...name escapes me but went with my daughter on Monday, August 11th. He was fun, patient, and kind! We were picked up at the Riu Guanacaste and taken to another hotel before we met him. I never went ziplining before and neither had my daughter and he took away all fears.
It was a beautiful day and we also enjoyed the horseback riding, mud bath and hot springs. The lunch was delicious! I highly recommend this tour!
Zip lining was my first experience and I will look forward to more opportunities in the future. The horseback riding took us through a variety of terrain including woods, hills with countryside views. The horses were well trained and gentle. Mixed review on hot springs experience yet I encourage it once! Our tour guide for the day, Rain, was fun and knowledgeable.
Everything explained on the site was thoroughly accurate and the homemade Costa Rican lunch was amazing. A def must do!!!
Vida Aventura was amazing. Not only did my friend and I enjoy every part, the staff was professional. I loved ziplining the most. I would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks Viator!
The local tour company did a great job. However, please note there is an option to drive yourself to the park location. Don't do this. Everything the tour offers is well worth it, but have the local operator pick you up. You have to know the area to navigate in Costa Rica. Secondly the tour is in a rural location and the roads are very poor. You have to have the proper vehicle to get back into the rural location. The local tour operator equipment is well maintained. They are very friendly and the location is beautiful.
The ladies and I really enjoyed the trip especially the ziplining. I enjoyed the free facial and mud bath. My skin felt brand new after I washed it off. I would recommend this tour. Our tour guide Brian was excellent and very accommodating. He gave us a personal background and history background of Costa Rica. The ladies were very accommodating with providing the ladies and I with cardigans and jackets during the horseback riding tour since the weather was chilly. The meal was fantastic and very filling. Thank you again.
Organized well with a small group of 10 in a small bus for a shorter ride compare to the large groups of 50 for a longer distance ride of 3 hours made this tour more enjoyable and seemingly private. That made the Zipline wait much shorter
Kind of disappointed! Zip line was fun and well run, but horses-not very interesting, the hot springs turned out to be a small hot pool and Jacuzzi, and the volcanic mud was a big bowl of mud that you applied yourself. a long drive for a tepid experience. Lunch ok-minimal.
Would rather have gone to a real hot springs pool-recommend a different tour if that is what you are looking for. Maybe a little longer in the travel time would be worth it.
As some people have said, the place is hard to find so make sure you leave early and drive a 4x4. First we did horse riding, which was fun I am an experienced rider but extremely reckless. Even the first timers galloped. Any person who knows the first thing about horse riding knows how insane this is. Helmets weren't even offered. The ziplining was fun. As far as views of the 2 volcanoes - that never happened. Unless they were somewhere far and no one bothered to tell us we were able to see them. The mud bath was a small pot of mud and a little pool next it in the back yard of the office. The lunch was nice note that it says we will get fruit, but we actually got chicken with rice and beans. The tour guides were very nice and friendly. Not sure it was worth the money.
The zip lining was great but the horseback riding was disappointing. It was much too short and felt more like filler. Mauricio, the tour guide was excellent.
