We had a great time. They have some awesome zip lines. I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide was really nice and gave some nice commentating throughout the ride as well. We were pleasantly surprised at how great the food was as well. Bring your bug spray for the nice hike through the hills as well. Pura Vida!
Well organized and all people connected with it were friendly and helpful.
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!!!
Staff and family at Vida Aventura were so welcoming and accommodating! Loved our experience there! Zip lines are great for beginners ground to ground zip lines rather than tree top to tree top. Still so fun and awesome! Suzie the ranch dog followed us from zip to zip one of the highlights of our day! Horseback riding is amazing and so beautiful. Must do! Really great views along the way. Lunch was delicious and well-earned after the horseback riding and zip-lining! Hot spring and volcanic mud bath was more of a jacuzzi and bowl of sulphuric mud. Not my favorite. Spa felt nice after a long day, but not what I pictured. I imagined a natural in ground hole vs a jacuzzi. Mud smells terrible. The mudbath is a typical Costa Rica tourist thing to do, so I encourage you to try it, but all the clothes in my suitcase still smell like sulphur and the swimsuit I used that day will probably smell like it forever. Oh well! Such a quaint place to visit and you get to do a lot in one stop! Well worth it, especially if you have a short visit to Costa Rica.
The day was a lot of fun, and again, Alejandro was a wealth of information, but the mud bath/hotspring portion of this tour was not great. Nice horseback ride, zipline was fun and exciting, but I'd hoped for an educational zipline tour through jungle canopy, rather than a thrill ride.
Wonderful time - relaxing pools, great ziplines. The horse ride was beautiful, but it seemed my horse was agitated the whole ride it bucked a few times at other horses, didn't like anything close behind it. Take notice if your horses ears are tucked back - it usually means they aren't happy.
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.
