Some adventure activities do have weight and or age restrictions. However, if we are provided information in advance, we can often make arrangements to accommodate special requests. The following are some of the common tours with restrictions.
Canopy zipline cables can support several thousand pounds, so there is not a real risk of a cable snapping due to the weight of a person. However, the participant must be able to fit in the harness and be safely secured. Therefore, your waist size cannot exceed 45 inches and your thighs cannot exceed 31 inches. Most zipline operators will not allow children under the age of 5 years old, though some have restrictions up to 8 years old.
There is no age or weight limit to hanging bridge tours.
The weight restriction for most rafting tours is 250 pounds, though there are a couple operators that have restrictions starting at 200 pounds. Age restrictions vary by rapid class. In general, class I and II rapids require you to be between the ages of 6 – 60. Most class II rapids require you to be between 8 – 60 years old. The minimum age for most rivers with class III and IV rapids is 14 years old and the maximum is often 55. As there are so many variables with rafting, it is best to inquire for exact policies for the tour you are interested in prior to reserving if you are over 200 pounds or outside of the age range of 14 – 55.
Participants should be between 8 - 65 and be in good physical condition.
Most tubing tours have restrictions starting at 200 pounds. If you weigh more, you should inquire about the specific tour prior to registering for it. Participants should be between 10 – 60.
Participants should be between 8 and 65 years old. In addition to rappelling, canyoning also involves walking through the canyon and stream bed, which can be slippery and more physically demanding than the rappel. The weight limit for most canyoning tours is 250 pounds. However, the participant must be able to fit into a harness and be safely secured. Therefore, your waist size cannot exceed 45 inches and your thighs cannot exceed 31 inches.
Drivers must be at least 16 years old and have a valid drivers license. There is no weight limit, but you must be physically fit to drive an ATV in off road conditions.
Due to the small size of typical Costa Rican horses and the rugged terrain, you must provide us with your weight prior to reserving. The maximum you can weight for most of these tours is between 200 – 250 pounds.
