The canopy tour was super super fun, and the suspended bridges have super views. The staff is extremely polite, prepared, and very attentive to safety. A suggestion: it sprinkles/rains most of the times, and if you get there after 10:30 you will likely have to wait in line to ride on certain tree stations. Bring a waterproof jacket, and if... More

great experience. they do try to rush over 400 people through on each tour so it felt rushed and the equipment (helmets and gloves) really need to be washed - they smell so BAD! But, staff was great, I felt safe and we really enjoyed the experience.

This is one of the longest zip lines in the world (13 zips) through the authentic canopy. Once you have done this one, you will never need to do another. The guides were excellent. We did not do the rest of the park. It is crowded and run like many of the theme parks in the states to keep people... More

My daughter loves the zip lining in Costa Rica. We went in Arenal and now here in Monteverde. We enjoyed both equally as well but really enjoyed being able to go together on this one. We doubled up on three of the cables and I got to ride with my son while my daughter was able to ride with one... More

We did a 2 hour walk over hanging bridges with an excellent guide. This was arranged by our agent, so we had not realised that there were other attractions here. We could have spent much longer and enjoyed time on our own there. We were using shuttle buses and you can choose when to go back. A lovely place

Over priced. Did not do the zip lines as we had a horrible experience with them in Arenal. All side exhibits are an additional fee. Butterfly house and Hummingbird garden were poor when compared to others we have been in. Guide tour was a waste. Suspended bridges were ok, but trail would have been better with signs identifying plants. Heard... More

Amazing ziplining experience! This was our first time ziplinging, and everyone had a blast, especially kids. We did not know where to go for Tarzan ride, and my son was unhappy he missed it. Walking in the rainforest going from one station to another was also wonderful experience.

The ziplines are awesome, to Superman over a half a mile and at least 200 feet up in the air is the closest almost all of us are going to get to know what it feels to fly on your own. The bridges are nice and the jungle is impressive, I will say it is a lot of walking up... More

We booked this through our tour company without really knowing what it was. It was raining, so if you go, bring rain gear or grab a Pancho. The ones in the store at the park are a bit pricey so get one before you go. You get fitted for zip line gear and taken in a shuttle to the starting... More

The jungle views are amazing with the last zip being the longest and most open view of water in the distance. We had a great time zipping from one platform to another and felt very safe. We've done 3 other zip line companies in the Mayan Riviera and this one was comparable. It has an additional platform jump toward the... More
