Starting at $57 per adult


The Arenal Paraiso Canopy Zipline is an exciting and different way to view a rainforest. It is quite literally a flight over a river canyon located between La Fortuna and Lake Arenal, Costa Rica. The starting point is at the Arenal Paraiso Hotel which is situated right in front of Arenal Volcano. Your expert guide who is a professional with the most up-to-date safety equipment, will help you navigate across 12 platforms and 11 cables at heights up to 80 meters (approximately 260 ft) and lengths of roughly 350 meters, or about ¼ mile. The canopy zipline at Arenal is so close to the volcano, you not only have an opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of the forest and its inhabitants, but also experience the magnitude of the volcano itself.

The tour begins with transportation from your hotel in the town of La Fortuna and surrounding area, including the Chachagua Rainforest Hotel. You will be taken to the Arenal Paraiso canopy zipline where you will be fitted with the most modern safety equipment and instructed by your bilingual guide exactly what to do to insure your experience is the best possible. As you glide over the rainforest canopy, the adrenaline will rise not only because of the sensation of flight, but also due to the overwhelming beauty of the land and wildlife. The adventure ends at the Arenal River which borders the rainforest. A tractor ride through the rainforest will take you back to the reception area.

The tour includes transportation to and from your hotel, professional guide, and all safety equipment. The entire experience takes from 2 to 3 hours. One way transportation to Arenal Paraiso takes from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the location of your hotel. It is recommended that you wear long pants and fully enclosed shoes. Bring your sunscreen, insect repellent, rain gear, and camera. The safety helmets are equipped with hardware to attach a camera to record the experience.

Guides were great!!


Totally did not expect to have to hike before and after the ziplines, I guess I missed that in the activity description. Outside of that, the rest of the event was amazing and I had a blast. Guides were experienced, great at giving directions, friendly, and entertaining. Highly recommend.


The gentleman that we our guides were amazing. They explained everything to us, so helpful.


We felt very safe. The guides were really nice and patient with our smaller kid. Nothing to point out.


These guides are very hard working. We were happy to have only four people on our tour; more than that plus the two guides would have felt really crowded on the small platforms. I really can't believe I did this, really thrilling.


We had a fun time on this excursion.


Carlos and Cristian were so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor and wonderful knowledge of their country and their job! We had a fantastic experience doing this zip line tour!


Me encanto....


The guides for the zipline were the best. We had so much fun! We felt safe but it was a thrilling and amazing experience. We got some many videos and photos, and saw a sloth up close.


It was a lot of fun. We thought there would be more than the 2 of us but it was just us and we had a lot of fun.we did stain our clothes from rust-might be good to warn people this is a possibility.


Such a fun experience; guides were amazing!


The tour guides ensured a memorable experience and you could tell safety was their top priority.


We had two guides for this excursion and they were awesome. I was skepical at first as it did not look like we were high enough up in the mountains to be ziplining over the jungle, but I was wrong. The one guide took our phone and took a large amount of photos as this is impossible to do while you are the one on the zipline. We had one girl in our group who was a nervous wreck and the guides were very patient with her and she ended up having a lot of fun.


Christian & Carlos were tons of fun. had a blast and the zipline views are crazy


The staff was patient and helpful and took some great videos for us. Highly recommended.


The guide took videos and photos using my phone for free so I had so many great pictures of us when I got home!


The zip line operators were fun and funny! One of them also did an amazing job at getting pictures for everyone!!


The tour guides on this excursion were amazing! They took pics and filmed for you with your cell phone and it didn't cost any extra for this service!


Cristian and Carlos were wonderful, especially Cristian. They made the experience wonderful.


Thrilling and phenomenal! Staff was very experienced and gave thorough safety instructions.


Best experience ever !


The guides were so awesome! We had a great time!


Favorite part of the trip


We had 14 people in our group which is far too many. It really slowed us down and it was a hot day to be without water for that long. The tour was awesome and we loved the guides!


Awesome guides - made our first experience so fun!


Really fun time. Guides were a blast of fun.


My girlfriend had a panic attack on the first run and the guides were fantastic. They were able to calm her down and we all had a great time.


It was great but I have been ziplining where you don't have to wear that thing on your hand or keep yourself straight. I felt less safe that I had to be a part of slowing myself down or keeping myself straight. I twisted a lot on the line and would have liked to just hang loose


Miguel, Chris & Carlos were excellent! Carlos's videoing of our adventure was over the top! Miguel was delightful, informative and made you feel very safe is a scary situation. A+


Lots of fun! Over too fast! The guides took terrific photos and videos for us and were very friendly and explained well both ziplining and the local environment.


Beautiful and fun.


So fun!!


Again, another excellent tour. We did it in the rain. It was just myself and my two teenagers, so a private tour, essentially. They made it so fun. Loved it.


Wow! Great experience. The tour guide Miguel was friendly,patient, safety conscious and fun! The zip lines were so fun and the views were stunning! Highly recommend!


Staff was great and the activity was exciting.


Zipline in the rain! Was a bit nervous but at the end felt like the rain made it more exciting and fun. Guides made sure that we felt safe all the time and kept us laughing. Encouraged us to have fun and we did as well as the other people on our tour that morning. Had so much fun and felt like it was a once in a lifetime experience!


AMAZING. Our guides were very fun and safe. They helped calm me down when i was initially afraid of the highet. Awesome experience, our guides even took some amazing pictures and videos of us which was very nice!


The men who escorted us and oversaw our safety were excellent! Very patient with us newbies.


All our 3 guides were excellent! Highly recommend them! They also took great pictures and videos of us zip-lining.


Guides were very health & safety cautious


Guides were awesome. Went above and beyond. Took videos/pics for us. Gave excellent advise. So much fun!!!


It was my first zip lining experience and the guides made sure everyone was well informed, safe, comfortable, and had fun.


The guide was extremely friendly and went above his duty of ensuring our safety. He even took pictures for us and took plenty of video footage for our memories. The locker was free of charge and I felt very comfortable with both of the guides.
