What To Expect

Begin your aerial adventure with hotel pickup in San Jose (if option selected) and a scenic drive through rolling hills and coffee plantations to arrive at Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica Atlantic. This private ecotourism reserve covers 1,174 acres (475 hectares) of protected land and is the perfect base camp for the day.

Before taking the leap, your expert guides will provide a safety orientation and all the gear you need, including a helmet, harness, and gloves. To access the zipline course, take an easy walk along a forested trail and across a hanging bridge that spans the Molinete River. Climb to the top of the first platform and warm up your courage with a relatively short 263-foot (80-meter) line that crosses the river.

Continue along the adventurous course of 10 different cables that whisk you through the treetops of caobilla trees. Your guides will be on hand the entire time to ensure your safety and provide tips and tricks to maximize your ziplining experience.

For a heart-racing finale, prepare to fly at speeds of up to 34 miles per hour (55 km per hour) on one of Costa Rica’s longest ziplines. Stretching an astonishing 2,297 feet (700 meters) across at a height of 197 feet (60 meters), the Adrena-Line provides the ultimate zip.

After completing all 10 lines, descend back to solid ground and freshen up for lunch (if option selected) or the return drive to San Jose.

Fantastic experience
Charlotte_W, Apr 2024
This was one of the most professional and enjoyable activities I've ever done. The network of lines themselves progressed from easy to hard and were designed to give great views. But the staff themselves were amazing: completely dedicated to safety and enjoyment, they were reassuring the whole way round. It was fantastic!
Awesome Ziplining

Not as advertised
Kathryn_H, Dec 2023
Trip not as advertised - was meant to be 6 hours and I had booked zipline only (as is in the description) but was put with a group that were doing an all day trip/multiple activities. Not told this until half way to the location. The guide was awful, she had absolutely no interest in trying to help and to be honest she didn't even seem like she wanted to be there. Was basically left at the park waiting for others to finish. Had plans for the evening and lost money due to the false advertisement. The zipline was ok, felt safe but our small group of 4 was put with a group of 10 and there was ALOT of waiting in between zip stations. The place is hugely overpriced and not much there at all, also absolute nightmare with traffic getting there and back (3 hours to get back and the guide abandoned the group with a non English speaking driver) Personally wouldn't do again and feel it's important people know - there is no way of getting back on your own either unless they happen to be able to find a taxi which will cost you $80 (very sparse). The staff didn't care, just blamed Viator, no one wanted to take responsibility at all. I travel alot and this is one of the worst I've encountered. Park is also pretty run down, it was pretty empty and I can see why! I would go to La Paz or multiple other options, definitely wouldn't waste your money and precious holiday time.

Christine_M, Jul 2023
The guides on the zip line at Braulio Carrillo are fantastic. This was a great experience. Do not plan on it being 1/2 day. We were picked up at 8:00 and dropped off at 5:00. It was still well worth it.
Adrenaline, views, nature!
Aleksandra_K, Mar 2023
I booked this activity just 2 days before and it surprised me so much! Our guides were entertaining but also took care of security very much. It was super fun. Wonderful views and the last line is just amazing. So if you can’t go too far from San Jose this Park is definitely a Good choice :-)

Zipline company and experience was amazing!! The workers were great and we had an awesome experience! I only gave 4 stars because our drive back to San Jose was scary borderline dangerous. Our ride there was fine… not sure what happened.

Must try
Derek_D, Feb 2023
The experience is a must do when visiting Costa Rica! The 700 meter zip line will leave your heart pounding and mind in awe with the beautiful view of the forest! We did about 8 different lengths of zip lines and each one was a thrill.
Must do zip line!
Beth_C, Jan 2023
Really nice zip line instructors! It was very safe and the first 4 lines were slower and shorter. The guides made sure you were comfortable with the equipment and procedures . The last 6 lines were longer and a lot of fun! Not scary at all. Beautiful views. We saw two toucans on the walking trails. The traffic in San Jose is terrible so we got back later than the six hours it said in the brochure.
Such a great experience! The guides were great and the rainforest is beautiful!
Laurel_K, Dec 2022
I got to see a sloth and fly through the trees! Amazing experience! The guides made me feel safe and were very personable. The rainforest is beautiful and the zip lining was so fun!

Angelica_P, Jul 2022
We had an amazing time. I would love to give it five stars but unfortunately I can due to my daughter having a reaction to the straps. I would definitely recommend washing the straps and harness after each use to avoid bacteria transfer and germs. Other than that, it was an overall great experience
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Hello Angelica_P! Thank you very much for providing your feedback to us, we will make sure to communicate the park. Other than that, I am glad you and your family had a good time at our Eco Adventure Park. Regards,

Nice Tour
inga_s, Mar 2022
Super communication and a quick booking. Only in the evening before decided and it worked so well. Our transporter Marco was super nice and the Van is air-conditioned and very very clean. Ziplining is in a park, the guides were super and the view fantastic. After that, you could take a small Walk there through the rainforest and also in a small butterfly room. Very pretty. Lunch was okay.

Awesome zip lining tour!!
Elizabeth_S, Jan 2022
the staff was so nice! because of covid, there weren’t many people so we got to do the zip line tour all by ourselves. the guides were super friendly and the zip lining was amazing. it was the perfect amount of time and the views were absolutely beautiful. after our zip lining we did a small walk through the forest and then went to a butterfly garden. after that we ate at the restaurant and it was the best food we have had the whole trip!! you need to eat there!! while we were eating, a staff member found a sloth right outside! so we got to eat and watch a sloth climb the tree!
Response from Host, Jan 2022

Zipping over the tree tops
Gerald_J, Dec 2021
Pickup on time, and slightly early in a clean van. About an hour drive out to the entrance, where there are restrooms at checkin. It’s a little little bit of uphill hiking thru the rain forest, to get to some of the platforms. Everything was safe and first class during the trip. Lunch was good. Recommend.
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Hello Gerald_J! Thank you very much for your recommendation and five star review, we are truly happy that the experience was fun, safe and to your liking from the beginning. Best regards,
