Starting at $48 per night


Experience the treetops of the rainforest from a different perspective on the Athica Canopy Zipline tour.  This fast-paced adventure tour will allow you to soar through the jungle canopy at speeds up to 60 km per hour!

The tour starts off with a transfer from your local area hotel to the park.  Your guides will then suit you up with your harness, helmet and safety gear and provide a brief safety lesson.

The Athica Canopy Zipline Park includes approximately 3 km of galvanized stainless steel zipline cables.  The cables are hung through the forest treetops between 16 platforms.   The 8 ziplines range in distance from 80 – 750 meters with an average height of 38 meters!  Several of the platforms are built into enormous trees allowing you to view the forest from an amazing perspective. 

Athica also offers a towering 8 meter high Tarzan Swing!  Brace yourself for the coolest jungle swing you will ever see.  This is not for the faint of heart!  Of course, you can skip this portion of the tour and watch the others if you prefer.

This is a fast paced adventure tour which requires some hiking and climbing.  It is best suited for children 5 years and older and adults up to 70 years.

After the adventure you will be returned to your local area hotel.  In total the tour lasts around 3 hours including transfers, though this is subject to change.

This was our favorite part of the trip and the guides were amazing! The girls and us had so much fun and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.


This was THE highlight of our whole trip!! The guides were SUPER nice, funny, and great to ZIP with!


Would have been better if it was a bit longer and it had not been raining as hard as it was.


I was hoping for more of a jungle tour that would provide an opportunity for wildlife encounters. This tour felt like it was on a farm. Other than that, it was wonderful and did provide some excellent zip lines.


amazing experience!


Guides were awesome


Loved the staff. Funny, helpful and caring.


Freaking awesome and super fun fun! Highly recommended!


I loved that the guides were overly cautious, especially since we had kids.


We had fun - our youngest daughter got scared, but our great guides went with her on the ziplines, which was wonderful!


Shorter duration than what I expected. Definitely an older facility.


Beautiful views. Tour guides through the area were great.


Awesome time!


I expected a longer series of lines. This was only 7.... but the guides were great, and we had them all to ourselves! We were the only ones on that trip.


Wish I had take my own pictures. One of the guides was snapping pictures so I thought we could pick out what we wanted at some point. The only offering was a $25 video of the whole group. I was very disappointed.


Wonderful guides...great experience.
