Starting at $68 per adult


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.

So fun! Everyone was friendly.


Lots of fun!


We lucked out and had an experience with just the three family members. The staff was extremely accommodating considering it was a small group.


Yes the guides Marvin and his son were helpful and made me feel very comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience


Our guides kept us safe, were so funny, and just made it a great experience.


We loved everything about this tour! Excellent!


It was beautiful.


We got the early tour which only had my niece and I. So it was like a private tour, which was great.


Very professional and fun. guides made it an enjoyable experience


Loved zip lining


Fun, safe and interesting. I only wish it was longer.


Felt safe. 1st timers. I was nervous, but was a lot of fun!


This could not have been more fun. They were very good with our nervous 8 year old son, who quickly realized he wasn't scared and could zipline on his own. Had a blast!


The location was amazing. The staff was very organize. The only complain I would say is that some of the zipline staff were not very pleasant. Not only myself felt that way but other people also made a comment. They would benefit with a training on how to deal with everyday people.


The guides were incredible and we had a great time!


We were outside our comfort zone, but felt totally safe with these fun and knowledgeable guides. We love the history, even they gave us high up in the tree line. We started out cautious and ended up swinging like Tarzan! Lol Our pictures are priceless!


The lines are for beginners. Next time I would like to do longer and faster zip lines.


Really fun for the everyone and great to meet new folks


felt safe and had helpful and fun guides. They took photos and videos for us too. Pineapple and watermelon at the end and excellent volcano and canopy views.


This zipline was good for families and beginners as the ziplines were mild.


Great tour. Prompt pickup, very knowledgeable guides. Adrian and Diego, helped us navigate, kept the energy up and were very entertaining!


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.
