What To Expect
Don’t miss the classic Costa Rican adventure of ziplining just because you’re staying in San Jose. Enjoy pickup at your San Jose hotel for the scenic 1.5-hour drive to the rain forest of the Central Valley. At the base camp, meet your expert guides and learn the ins and outs of ziplining with a safety orientation. Gear up with a hard hat, gloves and harness, and then make your way to the course via an easy 20-minute hike through the jungle. Climb up to the first platform, clip your harness to the cable and prepare for flight! Feel the adrenaline rush of gliding at high speed through the treetops on a series of cables that range in length and height. As you fly, soak up the spectacular scenery of waterfalls, giant Banyan trees and even views of the Pacific Ocean. After around 2.5 hours of ziplining, return to solid ground and climb back in the minivan or coach for the return drive to San Jose. Stop at a local restaurant along the way to refuel with a hearty lunch of typical Costa Rican cuisine. You will then be dropped off back at your San Jose hotel.

Viator Traveler's Reviews

The guides were all very friendly. They also showed excitement during appropriate times of the tour. The ziplines give you all sorts of views and action. The finale Superman line was tremendously excellent.
The two guys who took us ziplining were amazing. We both had a great time on this tour. The only problem was I booked the 12:30 pm tour. I received confirmation that I would be picked up at 8:30 am, which I felt was extremely early. We were picked up promptly at 8:30 am however, we were the only people on the tour. We were back at our hotel by 1pm. I wish I would have known that we really weren't scheduled for a 12:30 pm tour so I could have made plans for the afternoon.
This was my first zip line experience, and I was very nervous. The experience was absolutely amazing, and the team of guides took great care of us! They made the experience safe and enjoyable. We laughed a lot, and we're awed by the scenery and the excitement. Pura vida!
Tons of fun. The drive is pretty long, but very worth it. But there are lots of twists and turns towards the end of the drive, so for those who get carsick, be warned.
There were a total of around 12 lines. Many of them provided great views of the river that ran below as well as the canopy. The guides were all very nice and enthusiastic. They helped make it as fun as it was. There are a few surprises along the way that I won't spoil that added to the thrill factor. The lunch that is served afterwards for the early tour was delicious. Highly recommend the early tour because of this.
This was nothing short of AMAZING -- from our Viator guide, who picked us up at our hotel, to the actual Canopy Tour itself. I would do this again in a heartbeat. The guides on the actual Canopy Tour were EXCEPTIONAL. Patient, personable and they were very clear about safety. Not to be missed. Highly recommended. They deserve the gratuities!
This tour exceeded my expectations! There were 12 ziplines plus a wreaking ball swing over the jungle. I took the early tour and they provided a nice lunch. The driver and zipline guides were knowledgeable and friendly and helped to make the tour a wonderful event. I highly recommend it!
