Zip lining has been on my bucket list for years now. This experience was everything I expected and more! Our guides were awesome and so informative. We did ten zip lines, and stopped for fruit and cookies inbetween. The views were amazing, and we got to feed some local coatis during our snack break. Definitely a must-do when you're in... More

Our zip lining was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica!! Manu, the owner and Renee his assistant were fun, safety conscious and such a help with suggesting restaurants, ( his mother-in-law's restaurant Tabanicu oceanfront in Samara, ) and fishing guide Frank Finnes. They made our trip twice as nice as it would have been!!! Wingnuts is the best!!

Manu and Yasha are the owners of this zipline adventure on 100 acres of Costa Rican hillside, and they led our group of 8 through the trees with expertise, humor, and fresh fruit snacks. Our 4 and 6 year old girls were captivated and all had a great time. We saw howler monkeys, shared a snack with Scar and Flash... More

First time zip lining for all of us and everyone loved it! Yasha and Freddy were excellent guides for our... More

Jasa and Renee were fabulous guides. This was the perfect zip line course for our group. We received a great education on flora and fauna from Jasa throughout the course. We stopped midway to enjoy snacks of fresh fruit, cookies and juice and water. In addition, our brother-in-law lost his wallet somewhere between the office and home and they located... More

After being picked up on time, we went about 5 minutes to the family owned Wingnuts Canopy Tours to sign the paperwork, pay and store our bag. Guides Manu and Yasha were friendly, fun and safe. Always making sure we were clipped in, each person was given instructions before zipping from platform to platform, all 10 of them. We overlooked... More

The canopy tour is simply amazing! You get an amazing tour through the dry tropical forest. The zips and platforms are incredible. Very fast and very fun! They even through in a couple of (very) exhilarating surprises that will have you talking about this adventure for a long time to come! We saw a lot of animals along the way... More

Kids aged 5-9 and parents too had such a great time - glad we picked a small family run operation like Wingnuts - and the kids went back to school raving that the zipline was the highlight of their Costa Rica trip. Guides were incredibly familiar with taking kids and handled them perfectly so that no one was spooked -... More

We, a group of 3...60ish, had a lot of laughs and fun with Freddy & Manu ! Freddy got us all suited up at the office...which is just out of Samara town...and then we were off up the hills to the zips. We arrived at a narrow wooden hanging bridge that you cross to get to the first platform...and we... More

My almost-5 year old son did this canopy tour twice during our stay in Samara, once with the grandparents and once with my husband and me. He LOVED it. The lines aren't as long and fast as the ones in the rainforest, but the experience was great. It's a small outfit, so the experience felt more relaxed and personal, and... More
