Overview

Ziplining through the Monteverde cloud forest canopy is an exhilarating experience. This mountain community perched 1800 meters above sea level, offers spectacular expansive views of Costa Rican landscapes.

Your trained professional bilingual guides will welcome you upon your arrival, explain the tour, go over safety precautions and fit you into a harness.

When you arrive at the first of eleven platforms, you will receive a demonstration of how to use the wheel and harness equipment until you are ready to try it out. The first rides are short so that you can get the feel of zipping through the air and landing on the platforms where a guide will be receiving you.

Once you’ve mastered that, you’ll glide along on longer cables enjoying getting a bird’s eye view going in and out of the forest canopy.

About half way through the tour you will have the opportunity to rappel 15 meters down by rope to a platform beneath you. Completing that phase of adrenaline building, you’ll zip again over even longer and higher zip lines.

Stopping one more time, each person can take turns flying like Superman as your guide places safety shackles on the back of your harness allowing you to zip hands free looking down at the amazing view below.

You can also try out the famous Tarzan Swing using a properly secured elastic rope to freely swing down to a distance of forty meters, sure to get your heart pumping.

Finishing in style you’ll soar once more over and through the jungle on one of the longest zip lining cables in Central America.

This thrilling high flying canopy adventure is sure to electrify your senses. Be sure to bring a camera and wear shoes that enclose both your toes and heel. Half day tour includes round trip transportation from your lodgings at Monteverde and Santa Elena, plus your bilingual, professionally trained guides and all zip lining gear.

The tour was fantastic. One of my best ones in Costa Rica.! It took a while to get set up and started but after that it was awesome!

03/28/2017

Loved the whole experience

03/12/2017

I have to admit wimping out at the last minute, but this was a favorite activity for the rest of the family.

03/01/2017

This adventure also exceeded my expectations. The guides were knowledgeable and very safety conscious. I appreciated them checking my harness at each point. They were friendly and took care with some of us who were older! I'd do this again as well!!

This was a fantastic experience. The guy teaching the safety part was not very good. Hard to understand and easily bothered but once we were out there it was a blast and the care they gave my 10 & 13 year olds was great. Hooked the together and went with them on each line. That let the rest of us be able to enjoy and relax.

Super fun and bettter than what was expected

11/23/2016

Amazing experience and the guides made it for us! It was raining and chilly, but we hardly noticed, it was so much fun.

11/02/2016

This is amazing

Zip lining was great but the SUPERMAN was one of the best experiences of my life!!!! That and the waterfall rappelling are probably the 2 greatest things I have ever done!

07/14/2016

LOVED this trip. Guides were excellent and they helped my visually impaired son participate fully. They were helpful and kind and arranged for us to use private ATV in one portion of the expedition that would have been too tricky for my son. 10/10 for this company!!!!

06/03/2016

great experience

05/25/2016

Overall one of our favorite adventures, went perfect. You might suggest to couples, not to do the Superman glide as we opted not to. They allowed us to slide hooked together on the longest Zip line in Latin America leg locked together. Very special and many other couples were jealous. Great experience...

05/07/2016

AMAZING!! Nine cables, the last two are "Superman style." SO much fun! Only disappointment: the photos wouldn't be ready for another hour after we were ready to leave. No way to get them emailed. But don't let that stop you; you MUST do this!

04/12/2016

This was only bettered by the white water rafting - the experience was incredible, and great value for money. The only criticism on the logistics side of things was that a transfer departed literally whilst we were queueing for our photos and the company wouldn't hold it for everyone to finish collected their discs. We asked if we could share a cab with other guests instead but this was frowned upon, so we had to wait another 30/40 minutes for another transfer to arrive.

Great experience. The staff were very safety conscious.

12/26/2015

Great experience, even for our 8 yr old. Felt very safe and had a ton of fun!

12/18/2015

Zip lining was scary. I know it was just my head. Not a big fan of heights and this was way way high. thrilling for sure. I was terrified on the superman run. but very safe. guides were great.

08/11/2015

The tour definitely met our expectations, we're glad we did it, and we would recommend it to others. At times the tour felt rushed as went from tree to tree so I can't imagine what's it's like during the dry season. However, overall, it was a positive experience.

06/30/2015

Another highlight. Great day even though it rained. Guides were great as was the park.

06/18/2015

We loved the experience! The guides were superb, the equipment was excellent! We always felt safe and well cared for. The ziplines were an incredible view and the superman option was definitely worth it! I don't do heights well, but the way it is handled here, you gradually get more comfortable! I would do this again, and would recommend this group highly. If you are really brave the "Tarzan fall" at the end is really fun!

06/13/2015

My only regret was that I did the superman for the last few zip lines. When they asked me if I wanted to I said yes but I found it very hard to see anything except straight down. Someone should have explained that to me and also given me the option to not do it after I tried it once.
Also had to wait quit a while for the ride back and the driver did not communicate it very well although he did a great job of getting us there and back.

06/09/2015

Very professional, thorough, clear, etc. I didn't worry about my safety, just found it not to be my kind of activity.

05/21/2015

Really fun ziplines, also loved the Tarzan swing.

05/08/2015

Driver got lost a few times picking people up from other hotels - wasn't enough room in the van for everyone. Long hike we weren't made aware of prior to. Guides were very good. Pictures were incredibly poor quality we discovered after we purchased them- disappointing. Overall the zipline was a good experience.

05/05/2015

This was my least favorite but still really great experience. It was pretty scary and I have zipped before. I didnt care for how large the group was and the waiting around. I didnt like the way we were talked to by the older gentlemen. Found him a bit pushy and arrogant. Wished we would have had more information upfront about cameras etc. There should be a very big disclosure on how far and high you have to hike to go to Superman. I was not in shape for that and the altitude was extra hard on me. My heart hurt from that hike. I am glad we did it and wouldn't choose that tour again. I have zipped many times and love doing it and this was my least favorite experience. It is really cool to say I zipped the longest zip line in south america though!

04/25/2015

This zip lines were awesome! Very long and high! And get ready for the Tarzan swing at the end!

03/30/2015

Everyone loved this tour!

02/20/2015

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

01/19/2015

They should tell you what to expect when we did the "Tarzan". Very scary for my daughter..VERY. It would help to either prepare for it or just decide and not do it.
