What To Expect

Meet your guide at your hotel prior to your selected morning or afternoon departure time and head to a private reserve and adventure park, located just minutes from downtown Monteverde. Your tour begins in the primary, old-growth section of the cloud forest and moves to the newer secondary forest, offering a broad perspective of life cycles in the forest.

Start your trip with a zipline tour over the canopy, providing a heart-pounding view of the cloud forest below. Then, rappel 150 feet down to the forest floor. A ladder system through the hollow core of an old tree brings you back up into the treetops, and an optional Tarzan swing free-fall experience brings you back down.

Guides accompany you through every step of the adventure to ensure your safety and entertainment, as well as to answer questions about the local ecosystem.

Get dropped off back at your hotel or other specified drop-off location in Monteverde at the end of your adventure.

Amazing experience. Our guides were very friendly and made us feel comfortable by explaining everything in detail (first time for us attempting such an activity) All three parts of the activity were perfect. The views from the zip line are breathtaking and you have a few minutes just to take a deep breath and admire the landscape. Highly recommended.

Awesome tour. So many zip lines. It also includes Tarzan which is not a Zipline. It was terrible for me but amazing for for others. I don’t like free falling like a rollercoaster. If I had known, I would have opted to skip it. I loved the zip lines. Definitely worth the money.
Afraid once But very Fun

The First swing Wowwwwww. The walking to the platform was a very nice workout. I felt like a big bird just flying high to the sky.
Exciting adventure
Paule_G, Apr 2024
It was a very nice tour with exciting ziplines & more. Beautiful forest and we were a small group of 6 people which made it even more enjoyable.
Fun afternoon

Lots of zip lines for all tastes and good safety briefing and advice given by the guides. Saw a hummingbird on one of the treetops!
Indifferent instructors
Claire_B, Apr 2024
I would give this tour (Sat 6th 11am) 5* for safety and 1* for pleasure and positivity. Our instructors (one of whom was so mumbly we didn’t even get his name) may as well have been robots, going through the motions to get us on and off wires but with zero enthusiasm or encouragement. I couldn’t get the hang of braking, which left me yanking my arm backwards and spinning helplessly while hurtling towards trees, but they didn’t bother to help correct whatever it was I was doing wrong, just carried on, and were much more interested in their phones than whether anyone on the trip was having a good time. There was zero info about the trees, canopy, or anything, no passion or pride for the environment we were in. I left the trip and walked back to reception after the first few zip lines because the prospect of repeatedly messing it up in front of other customers and indifferent instructors was not tempting. My first zipline experience was frustrating and disappointing - I didn’t get to enjoy any views because I was so stressed about not being able to stay straight or brake - and will 100% be my last. Ending on a positive - Brayan took some great pictures of my son, and the safety procedures were very tight.
Adventure packed morning

The crew was friendly and made my 12 and 13 year olds feel ready to take on the challenges. Easy communication and nice pictures.
The 1st zipline ever in the world and THE BEST!
Deb_S, Apr 2024
THIS ONE IS THE BEST!!! We spent 3x times as much with friends in La fortuna zipline and rappel and it didnt even compare so this is THE EXPERIENCE! Our guide, Sergio was AWESOME! Everyone was safe, we had 17, 12, 10 children and this was our first time ever doing something like this. You are told the rules and off you go! The entire time you are go go go, it's amazing. We were very high up in trees and the views are amazing! It was the BEST experience we did in the 10 days in Costa Rica. THIS IS THE ONE! BOOK IT!
Flying high in and above the trees
Andrea_M, Apr 2024
Sergio and David were very personable. They were focused on safety but made it very enjoyable for everyone in the group. Sergio did a great job taking pictures as well.
Great experience
Roxan_Z, Mar 2024
Great Experience! Really kind guides. You fly over the rain forest, it is really amazing! Recommend it!
I can't recommend this strongly enough!
Lauren_H, Mar 2024
I can't recommend this experience enough. My friends and I had an amazing time every minute of the experience. There were so many zip lines - starting off a little lower and shorter, and getting higher and longer as we went. There were so many activities in this one tour that we kept assuming it was over, but there was more! Each activity was so much fun - I'd still recommend it if it were half as good. The staff were also amazing - Mauricio, Joseph, and Gerald made everything run so smoothly, knew exactly what they were doing, and made everyone feel very safe and comfortable. They also made sure to take a lot of photos of each activity! I can't recommend this strongly enough!
Tons of fun!
Corey_T, Mar 2024
We had a wonderful time with this company and Sergio and Bryan, in particular. This tour is perfect for people with kids or just people wanting a variety of experiences. We loved the Tarzan swing, rappelling, zipling, and climbing through a Fig tree. We felt safe and Sergio and Bryan were great with our kids (6 and 9). Everyone is hooked now and wants to go again. The whole experience was wonderful!
Heather_G, Mar 2024
My two daughters and I did the zip lining in Monteverde recently and had the most amazing, memorable time. Joseph and Gerald were fantastic guides. They explained every step of the excursion which started with the Tarzan swing and progressed into a number of zip line rides, repelling, and a climb through a ficus tree and up a rope ladder. I felt nervous at the start but our amazing guides helped calm my fears and made us feel very safe. Soaring over the Cloud forest was simply breathtaking! The tour surpassed all our expectations and I highly recommend it! Thanks to our guides for a super memorable experience and one we will never forget!
Enjoyable and safe experience
Liang_T, Mar 2024
This is our first time zip lining. Very impressed with the attention our guides paid to safety. Overall, a very enjoyable experience. I recommend this company to anyone who wants to try zip lining in the area.
Fun experience
Lisa_T, Mar 2024
Tarzan swing was so much fun! The guides were great at making everyone feel comfortable and safe! Highly recommended for adventure seekers
Cade_B, Mar 2024
The tour operator harassed my girlfriend the entire time, making creepy comments about her looks and body despite her asking to stop. He then proceeded to ask her to stay in the country with him as if he were trying to traffick her. He also made comments insulting me right in front of my face because he assumed I didn’t understand Spanish. We were uncomfortable and fearful for our safety the entire time. Very uncomfortable and unprofessional. There are plenty of other zip line operators that won’t sexually harass and insult you. Go elsewhere

There's a reason they have the best reviews!!
Katie_T, Mar 2024
At the start of our tour, our guides said what make this tour special is that the ziplines are really embedded within the forest and it was built to make as small of an impact as possible on the environment. I thought they were just hyping themselves up but after seeing other zipline options in Monteverde it's TOTALLY what sets them apart! Other places seem to be in huge industrial-looking parks, flying over roads and parking lots but on this tour, you were really among the trees soaring over the forest and in the canopy. It was so beautiful! David and Grayven also did a great job making sure everyone was safe and secure the whole time and fostered a really fun and friendly environment.
Amazing, adventurous and fun experience !
Jyoti_B, Mar 2024
It was an exhilarating experience. David, Sergio and Varrlla were the best guides. We were first timers. They were very helpful, supportive and made us feel at ease.We definitely recommend the canopy zipline, rappelling and the Tarzan swing.
Adventure in Monteverde Cloud Forest
Daniela_P, Mar 2024
This was a great and awesome experience! We really enjoyed having a new adventure in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. Very diverse experience, as we not only did a lot of ziplines, but we also did rappel, a Tarzan jump and climbed the interior of a tree. Our guides Sergio, Brian and David were very friendly and funny. Sergio took us amazing pictures during the experience too. I would love to repeat this experience in the future.
Great experience and friendly guides
Desmond_M, Mar 2024
