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.

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

3 star rating: Worth doing

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.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

It certainly did not meet the expectations we had, based upon your website or theirs. One driver picked us up from our hotel and dropped us off at another area where another driver and "guide" took us to the Park. This "guide" was not the most forthcoming with information about flora and fauna but did answer questions when asked. We did not read anywhere about the long, winding, rocky, bumpy road that took us to the "adventure." I believe the guide told us we were driving through a dump, and we did see people working in that dump when we returned. All in all, that drive was about 1 hour from the main road and was very uncomfortable for someone who experiences motion sickness (as I do). Since I am afraid of heights, I did not experience the zipline; but most people seemed to enjoy it, although many did mention some difficulty in getting to the platforms. The real guides were the workers at the park; two young men led the zipline and horseback experiences, and they were wonderful. One lady did the cooking; and, since I sat in the food area awaiting the others from the zipline, she offered and made coffee for me--which I thought was very nice. The driver and "guide" who brought us to the park seemed to ignore me completely until it was time to join the horseback ride. As dry as the area seemed to be when we drove to the park, it surprised me to see so much wet and sloppy trails for the horses to ride through; and that was a bit scary sine the horses seemed to be slipping a bit. The guides stopped several places to take pictures, and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves....although, it was a bit scary for me as a novice. Although the food was delicious, it certainly did not look like the pictures shown on the website; fried plaintains were the only fruit included in the meal. There was no mango as mentioned, and this was disappointing. The "mud bath" was a bowl of cold mud with paint brushes to apply to our bodies; since it was cold, I just used my hands.
