Guachipelin Adventure Volcano Zipline Horseback River Tubing Combo
What a day!
, Feb 2020
What a great trip! I'm almost 69, but in pretty good shape, and I didn't have any trouble with the physicality of the adventure. The river tubing was tons of fun, the zipline course was really cool, and added in some Tarzan swings, rock climbing, and rappelling if you chose to do those parts. The horseback riding was horseback riding, so if you like to ride or always wanted to try, it was fun, although a bit crowded on the trail. Finishing at the hot springs was a treat, and helped my body relax after a very physical day. I was exhausted when I got back to my cabana, and slept really good. Our overall guide, Dauly, was super, and I enjoyed the banter with him. The group was very diverse and I had a wonderful time talking and playing with all the folks. The beauty of the area is spectacular and well worth the money to see this part of Costa Rica. I highly recommend this excursion.
This was the most amazing tour ! Everything was as promised, on time, well taken care of and amazing experiences, a once in a lifetime event ! First we did the river tubing, scary but really fun, a great lunch followed, then the 9 zip lines, also scary but fun. Then the horseback trail ride and finally the hot spring pools and volcanic mud body painting. A truly wonderful day with a very good guide, Amoa. We did not have trouble with any of the hiking so would recommend it for anyone. The only thing we did not do was the rappelling and rock climbing between zip lines 5 and 6.
Hacienda Guachipelin is amazing. They are very well structured and the activities are beyond amazing. The tubing, specially, is exhilarating.
We visited on Jan 3 and the hacienda was super busy so our group was quite large, this is the only negative thing I have to say. This obviously is just because it’s high season and lots of tourists were there, same as us.
All in all, a must do!
Enjoy the thrill of this all-day adventure that includes some of the best outdoor fun. Get your adrenaline pumping on an exciting zipline tour, horseback riding through epic landscapes, and tubing along a flowing river. This memorable tour includes a visit to natural hot springs, a volcanic mud bath, and a full buffet lunch. It's the best way to experience the natural wonder of Costa Rica!
Outstanding. We had a nice small group which was helpful for getting the max out of our guide Jose’s depth of knowledge. Breakfast was delicious and from a stunning view of Lake Arenal. The hole through the rainforest that followed was fascinating and helped immensely by our eagle eyed guide. Lunch was great and could not have had a better view of the volcano. A long day of travel but the trip description had us well prepared for this. Hot springs were a nice visit.
Experience the thrill of hiking near one of the most active volcanoes in the Western Hemisphere! On this full-day trip from Guanacaste, get an up-close view of Costa Rica's famous Arenal Volcano and the surrounding tropical landscape. Rejuvenate with a dip in volcanic hot springs and enjoy stellar evening views of the volcano and emerging stars. Round-trip hotel transport from Guanacaste included.
Zipline and Hanging Bridges Combo Tour in Monteverde Cloud Forest
One of the best tours!
, Jan 2020
Amazing tour!! We went 3 college aged girls and all loved every part of it. The only tip would be, when it says it's a 12 hour tour that includes commuting from places outside of Monteverde. The latest you can stay here with a shuttle home is 4:30 which means your day is over much earlier than you anticipate. Other than that the entire experience was amazing and we would do it all again!
My husband and I loved this tour! Our driver Paul was awesome, and kept us laughing the whole way! He picked us up promptly, and we stopped for some breakfast. Along the way to Monteverde, Paul stopped so we could see some macaws. He was extremely patient while we took pictures. The trip up Monteverde was an adventure in itself lol. The road is narrow and bumpy, with no guard rails, but Paul was an expert driver, and navigated it like a pro! Again, he stopped plenty of times so we could take pictures of the amazing scenery. When we arrived at the park, he accompanied us inside to make sure we got our tickets, and knew where to go. We did the canopy zipline first, which was lots of fun. The guides were helpful and very knowledgeable, and safety was their first priority. You have to pay $11 extra to ride the last zipline "Superman" style, which we chose not to pay for. We did however pay $25 for pictures to be taken professionally along the zipline course. Well worth the money! The views from the 15 ziplines were amazing, but be sure to pack a light rain proof jacket, as it's much cooler and often raining, in the canopy. Also, there was a lot more walking then we expected, so a good pair of runners, and a moderate fitness level is a must. Next we had lunch in the restaurant. Service was excellent, and the food was "ok". After lunch we walked the hanging bridges. The hike is about 3 kms in total, but you can go at your own pace, which was nice. The views were breathtaking!!! Before we left the park, Paul took us into the Hummingbird Garden. He showed us how to hold our hands out so the hummingbirds would perch on us, and my husband and I were in awe. Such a beautiful moment... I could have stayed there forever! Again, I can't stress enough how much we enjoyed this trip. Having Paul as our driver was an added bonus! He's really awesome at what he does, and his genuine happiness and love of CR was obvious. This was a terrific excursion, and we'd happily do it again! Thanks Paul!!!
The staff was very friendly and professional. The views of the forest’s canopy were amazing from the zip line. But I will say that my favorite part of the trip was the walk through the forest across the hanging bridges.
Exchange the sun and surf for for a high-flying adventure in the misty Monteverde Cloud Forest on this full-day combo tour from Tamarindo. Fly through the forest canopy on a 15-cable zipline course featuring a gravity-defying Superman cable and a Tarzan swing, and slow down for a closer look at Monteverde's rich biodiversity while walking through the tree tops along a series of hanging bridges. In between adventures, replenish your energy with a typical Costa Rican lunch.
Sunset boat ride with open bar, food and water sports included / 1pm-6pm
Loved the Tour!
, Feb 2020
Luis, Ricardo, Miguel, Miguel Jr and Mikey the Dog were great hosts! My party of 6 had a great time. Good drinks, good music, good food! Snorkeling was a great experience! Thanks Ricardo for not letting me drown lol!
The experience was fantastic, we just had a miscommunication with some people cancelling and we ended up waiting too long to depart. This translated to shorter time at the beach.
But other than this, it was amazing. Great snorkeling, beautiful landscapes, funny guides and great food. A must do.
Captain John, Pablo, and Chate were the nicest guys and took such good care of us. They spent time with each individual! Had us sing for a bday, saw I wasn’t doing well and kept getting me ginger ale and giving me hints to keep my stomach in line, let the guests put on the music, just overall so great.

We booked through Gabriel who was extremely helpful during that process. Our guide, Jose was at our vacation house on time and the van was very clean. We were lucky to be the only ones going that day so it was like a private tour! Jose was amazing, perfect english, so knowledgeable about his country, the people, the attractions, the wildlife etc etc.
I could go on and on but it would be a novel. Do yourself a favor, book with these guys. They know their stuff and do it right.
Great private guided tour. Gabriel was a perfect guide. He spoke perfect english and knew the areas very well. It was a private tour with just my wife and I, so we could spend more time in the volcano/rain forest, and skip the waterfall. Hot spring was unique for us. Never had done anything like that before.
Our goal is to help visitors to have a memorable experience during their visit to Costa Rica, on a very ahutentic way providing private transportation and a personal and friendly professional local guide to assist them during the trip.
More than making business we like to make new friends.
Max out the adrenaline (and the fun) during this full-day adventure combining a white-water rafting trip and zipline excursion. Zoom through the rain forest canopy during a series of heart-pounding zipline rides, some on cable spans as long as 3,200 feet (980 meters). Then battle the Class II and III rapids of the Balsa River. Lunch, snacks, and rafting gear are all included.
Get a full-day dose of Costa Rican ‘pura vida’ on this private adventure that combines the best of Guanacaste’s thrills, relaxation, and cuisine. Get your heart rate up on an extreme zipline course complete with a giant Tarzan swing, then splash down the country’s longest mountain water slide. Enjoy a horseback ride through the jungle to reach a natural hot springs, where you can soak your cares away with volcanic mud baths. Recharge with a typical Costa Rican lunch, and enjoy personalized attention from a private guide all day.
Weather is everything. We went on a day where the weather could have gone either way. It held until after the end of the tour. The coffee tour was informative, the butterfly sanctuary as well. The Hanging Bridges were something I've wanted to see for quite a while now. They didn't disappoint!! Monkeys in the trees below and the trees growing right up to the bottom of the bridges in some cases. The clouds hovering around made for just the right atmosphere. Very nice! The Hummingbird Sanctuary was impressive. At least 10 different species (out of 400 in Costa Rica) flying around and even landing on your hands to perch and drink from the feeders. Rain didn't start until we got back on the bus heading back.
The tour of the Don Juan coffee plantation was interesting and informative. The butterfly habitat was fascinating, are we got good photos. Unfortunately, heavy rain during the sky walk kept us from seeing wildlife. The forecast was for the highest chance of rain in the afternoon - it would have been much better if the sky walk and the plantation tour could have been switched - they are not very far apart.
Enjoy a full-day tour to Monteverde where the clouds meet the woods and take an exhilarating walk through the famous cloud forest on hanging bridges. Sky Walk uses trails and a series of suspension bridges for a more relaxing introduction of the flora and fauna of the forest. It allows a vision of the forest from a different perspective which starts with a hike on the ground and then taking you to explore the treetops, a hardly discovered habitat called the “canopy” with a professional guide.
Vida Aventura Park in Guanacaste: Zipline Tour, Horseback Ride and Hot Springs
Action-Packed Adventure Day
, Jan 2020
*wear deep woods bug spray!* We started with horse-back riding which wasn't your average trail ride...it was super interesting and not just a large trail the horse just walks on. There are hills and streams and windey turns (may be challenging for first-time riders). Our leaders were amazing and really looked out for everyone in the group. Suzie (the guide dog) came along the horseback ride as well and even met us at every point of the zip line (we still have no idea how she made it so quickly...she may have magical abilities but we'll never know!) The zip line was exhilarating and the views are breathtaking! They even allow you to do one of the zip lines upside-down! We then ate a delicious lunch of local food. Our day was finished by soaking in the hot springs, covering ourselves in mud and taking a cool dip in the fresh water pool. I would definitely do this tour again and recommend it to anyone who's in a time crunch and wants to do multiple activities!
We booked this excursion for 15 people and there was a bit of a confusion with the pick-up but Jorge was kind enough to discount our transportation cost and he was able to provide transportation to and from our resort. The guides were very knowledgeable, very patient with a large group. The horsebacking riding was amazing through the mountains and seeing the volcanoes. The zip lining was a very good experience as most of the group had never done that before. It was a easy transition. The Costa Rican lunch was delicious and just enough to fill our bellies. The hot springs and pool were a added plus.
This excursion well worth the cost.
You can actually go and spend a couple of nights there so its a mini getaway. We looked at the 2 and the 4 bedrooms with amazing views.
We encourage all to do this excursion with Vida Aventura.
Had an amazing time! The horseback riding experience was the best we have ever had. The zip lining was great. And the lunch they served us was most delicious. Jason and Lester were just great. Hot springs were the perfect way to relax after all the activities. Overall great day, highly recomnend it😊👍

This place was INCREDIBLE. I cant put into text what a day at Diamante is like. I have been to alot of eco parks, zoos, and aviaries. This is by far the best of any. Walking with toucans, face to face with leopards, 20foot crocodiles, and at every corner another eager employee waiting to teach you more. We went for the whole package(which i HIGHLY RECOMMEND) and enjoyed a full 6+ hours in the park. We would've stayed a little longer had my wife not had a recently broken foot to nurse. The ziplines were some of the best ive ever seen. DO THE SUPERMAN!!! Yes its horrifying. I have a phobia of heights, and nearly passed out on the mountain, but as soon as they pushed me off i realized why trip advisor has them at #1! GO TO THIS PARK!!! IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY AND MORE!!

From beginning to end an amazing trip! We were greeted by Lindsay who did a great job introducing the team. They were all amazing. The drinks kept coming, the food was delicious, and the company even better. Andreas documented our trip and they send you all the photos free!! Everything was well planned and the day went by smooth.
We left feeling like they were family. They make a point to connect with their guests. We will definitely book again with them!

A sailboat takes you to otherwise inaccessible coves that are teeming with marine life and lined by pristine beaches, making this an ideal tour for snorkeling enthusiasts or anyone who wants to get away from the crowds and relax on the beach.
We had a fabulous time on this tour. We were able to take a dip in the Blue River after an invigorating hike. Also saw 6 sloths including 3 babies. Johnny was very informative and was fun to spend a long day with. The driving in Costa Rica is a bit crazy so we were happy that Johnny got us where we needed to go. Book it! You won't regret it!!
4 in one sloth, waterfall, rainforest, volcano tour
, Jan 2020
We enjoyed a fantastic tour with Gabriel as our driver and guide. He took great care of us and any requests we had, such as stopping at souvenier places.

They also took us to a family run place for lunch. Along with lunch we had a native 4th generation artist show us how he makes pottery. Very fun and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

My family and I went rafting with Braulio as our guide. It was an awesome experience. Braulio pointed out the wildlife as we went down the river and even pulled off to the side and found a tiny blue jean frog to show us, it was amazing. My daughter fell out of the raft at one point and Braulio was quick to get her back in safely. After the trip they took our group to a local restaurant/farm and I had the most delicious meal of my trip! It was a wonderful day spent with professional courteous people!!!!

The tour was awesome, got a great mixture of off roading and pretty chill roads. Carlos was an amazing tour guide. He stopped to show us monkeys, and enjoyed covering with us. He spoke English wonderfully and always was helpful when someone was struggling. One of the best excursions I have been on.
The person leading the activity was very friendly, very informative and spoke very good English. They pick up and drop off at the hotel. With the ATVs we went to the towns, dirt roads, rivers, mud, you get to enjoy the local fruits....FUN ALL THE WAY!!!
Friendly guide and driver. Was a long day (6 am to 6 pm, coming from Tamarindo area) but worth the trip! Don’t go expecting to see tons of animals but the cloud forests are beautiful and the hanging bridges are cool.

Amazing Mega Zipline (25 lines) over 11 Waterfalls
Breathtaking and beautiful
, Jan 2020
This was an incredible (and relaxing tour). First, I didn't realize that this would be quite a drive from San Jose (it took about 2 hours each way). But, the driver was friendly and this was a great way to see some of the country. The tour itself was exceptional. The guides were friendly and I felt safe. It actually took a lot of strength and I was sore the next few days. But, this beauty in this tour was unparalleled to anything I've experienced. I highly recommend this.
