The tour was such a great experience! Jorge was really friendly, fun and knowledgeable, making the long drive to the location feel much shorter than it was. Zip-lining was so much fun, one of the instructors took photos for us throughout and we paid 20 for a CD with the photos on - much better than us trying to take photos and potentially dropping the camera in the middle of the rainforest. When we got back the food was already prepared for us and was really lovely, traditional Costa Rican food. Jorge also showed us around the family's greenhouses which housed plants, snakes and frogs. The only slight cricitism though more with the operator's description of the tour than the tour itself: the horse-riding was not actually included and is not something they normally do for this tour, however the family kindly saddled up two of their horses for us anyway. All in all, definitely worth the money and would certainly do it again.
Jorge and Carlos picked us up at the hotel at the time we confirmed via the tour comapny's website. It takes an hour and half but Jorge made it go by fast with all his facts about the rain forest. We saw crocodiles, birds, howler monkeys while on the boat. The zip lining was worth it, great food!
Highlight of our trip: boat ride, ziplining, meal, photos. I was very apprehensive, but the zipline staff were super safety conscious and made us all have fun, even if we were scared. Ladder climbing is very difficult, but we did it. Traveling with my niece who is very ill, and the guides and staff were extremely accommodating and understanding when we had to lay back and go last for everything.
excellent tour! ziplining was brilliant and easily one of the highlights of my entire trip! A special thank you to the guys at the ziplining venue who helped me get through my debilitating fear of heights and actually complete all 10 stations! loved the river cruise and overall great experience!
Victor our tour guide was very informative. Being handicap, Victor made every effort to ensure that I had a fantastic tour.
Our tour guide Mauricio and driver Carlos were great. We had a pretty long ride from the hotel but it was very scenic and Mauricio pointed a lot of landmarks and gave us information about the region. We had a wonderful boat ride. We saw tons of animals on the boat ride to the zip line location. The zip line crew were very friendly and made sure we had fun and were safe. You zip on 10 different lines, two of which require you to climb pretty tall ladders. Lunch is also provided after the zip lines.
The combination of the boat ride seeing all the wildlife and the ziplining is awesome! Tour guides were entertainingly awesome. Must go!
Look our for the fantastic wildlife! Tour guides are awesome! Ziplining! Ziplining! What a rush!

Fun Fun Fun
My buddy and I had a wonderful time on this tour. They were punctual and and got us to our destinations safely and with great care. There is nothing like zip lining over and through the rain forest. What an amazing feeling. The views of the landscape were beautiful. The river boat tour was nice. we saw many birds and monkeys, but only one crocodile. The tour guide Victor was informative and pleasant. We enjoyed his balance of sharing history and also letting us just take in the beauty of the tour. So worth the money. Our late lunch/dinner was delicious. I also enjoyed the wonderful people who shared this tour experience with us, we had lots of laughs.
Fantastic tour. Great guides. Wonderful lunch. Looking forward to taking the tour again on my next visit.
Great day trip out of San Jose. A bit of a drive and worth it. The combination of boat trip and zip-lining was perfect.
I recommend this tour because it is an unique experience. The views, the people and the experience were amazing
The Canopy (or ziipline) was invigorating. One would need to have some strength and lots of nerve to climb the ladders to get to the next station - but we had a blast. The guides were exceptional and very much aware of the safety responsibility. We loved the experience! The rainforest tour was really good except the weather wasn't in our favour. The food prepared for our lunch was very good, and the tour guide made us feel very comfortable. His descriptive of where we were could have been a little more informative.
We had a great day on the river cruise and canopy tour. The guides and drivers were very nice and informative. We loved our canopy tour and had a very nice lunch. The only wildlife we saw were three crocs as we got rained out on the way back from zip lining. We would recommend this tour. All of the zip lining was done very safely. Might be nice to show photos of the very tall ladders so guests know what to expect as far as climbing to the landings. I was very shocked to see the heights we had to climb but feel wonderful that I did it all successfully.
Very fun but lots of climbing so be prepared for a work out good food and the boat ride is fun you get to see all kinds of animals even the snakes and butterflys are awesome
This tour is awesome - just make sure you are fit enough for the workout which includes significant ladder climbing!
We had so much fun! Thank you so much Mauricio and your team for taking care of us! The river boat ride was breathtaking! The ziplining was amazing! 100% FUN!!!
