The El Santuario Canopy Zipline is hands down the best zipline in Manuel Antonio. With 3.6 kilometers of cables, hanging bridges, trails and a rappel, this truly is an awesome adventure!

The day starts off when you are picked up from your Manuel Antonio hotel. You will be brought to the El Santuario Reserve in the hills overlooking the park and coast. When you arrive, your guide will size and suit you up with a high quality helmet and harness. Then you will be on your way to adventure!

The lines are double anchored for safety. The course also offers a dynamic braking system so you do not have to worry about hand braking.

Between the 14 tree based platforms there are 11 ziplines with a total length of 3.6 kilometers. The course features the longest zipline in Central America at over 4,300 feet (according to El Santuario)! As you scramble through the course you will cross 6 hanging bridges and also pass through 3 nature walks. To top it all off there is a rappel and air stairs!

The El Santuario Canopy course is like something out of Robinson Crusoe. You will find yourself full of wonder and thrilled to your core! It is the highest rated zipline in Costa Rica and sure to provide memories for a lifetime.

After your high speed, high flying adventure you will have the opportunity to pass through the Butterfly Gardens. Then you will be provided a typical Costa Rican style lunch.

Transportation will be provided back to your hotel after the tour. The tour is expected to last around 4 hours including transfers, though this is subject to change. Your adventure includes transportation, guides, snack, water, and lunch.

We had a great time!


Phenomenal tour. Great guides. Real fun. Absolutely recommend


We didn't expect as much walking and it was difficult for our 81 year old mom. But the guides were patient and extra helpful to my mom . They also had a great sense of humor. The food at lunch was not that great but we were hungry enough to eat it.


This tour was fun, even in the pouring rain! The whole family had a great time!


Excellent experience. Guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Felt very safe. Lunch was very good!!


This was a great experience. The staff were very professional and safety conscious. It was a fun experience for all. The lunch was a wonderful touch and very authentic and delicious.


Great experience - guides all very friendly and helpful


Guides were great and the experience is exhilarating and still safe.




Tour guides were knowledgeable, witty and friendly. Enjoyed the trip a lot !


This tour exceeded our expectations. SO MUCH FUN!!!


The guys did a great job! Excellent guides and amazing views.


This was fun! Only negative was the commute to and from the location seemed a bit long.


Super fun! Loved the guides and every member of our party had a great time on the ziplines. Absolutely beautiful and tons of fun. Felt very safe and the guides were fun and funny.


So fun! Loved it


Lots of fun for the whole family. It did not disappoint. The views were amazing. This location was the most muggy and humid of all the places we visited (February 2022). It is very safe and "idiot proof" - you can't fall off. We would probably do a different zip line next time just to see something new, but I recommend this one, too.


Guides made sure to keep kids entertained while remaining safe. Amazing views and such a fun and must do experience


Amazing tour and experience! We had so much fun and the guides were so safe.


Due to an accident the transfer van was unable to meet us but el santuario went above and beyond to pick us up by sending a separate car.


Long drive to get to the lines, but the photos were great and the upside down position was the first time I've been allowed in >10 companies.


Awesome adventure! We had never zip lined before so were a bit nervous but the 6 guides were so good. We felt very safe. It is a very intensive workout due to the hiking through the trails uphill. Strenuous, so if you are not in good shape, have trouble hiking, etc., you may not want to attempt


Very fun. These guides were our favourite - very funny and personable.


The guides were very kind and gave you all the tips you needed to have fun and be safe.


The guides were really friendly and fun, and the food provided was amazing.


So much fun! All of the guides and young men who worked the zip line were very very nice.


Lots of fun and beautiful. Felt safe & well taken care of


Loved this tour. Would do it again. Great guides, and we felt safe with the gear and the equipment.


Amazing tour and guides, lines, equipment and lunch. Highly recommended


We were hoping to do the zip line in MONTEVERDE since we heard the best one is there with 100% extreme adventures, but this one was enjoyable too with many different zip lines (close to ten in total) and the staff was sooo funny.


Excellent guides, exciting, amazing experience.


Will do it again, loved the experience


So much fun and the tour guides made us feel safe the whole time.


The guides were all very nice and transportation to and from was great.


Probably our favorite part of the trip. Not only was the ziplining so much fun, but the guides were great. The food was pretty good too. NO complaints and I can't think of anything to improve on.


Great group of guys! We had lots of fun


Lots of fun doing this excursion as well! First time ziplining, very exciting! The food was not bad, the guides were fun.


The guides were good but just not as into it as our guides during the canyoning adventure. The zipline guides knew what they were doing but they weren't as personable and seemed like they did not love their jobs quite as much. They were not specific about when it was appropriate to try out different methods on the zipline- mentioned in int he beginning and then never again so we missed opportunity to travel upside down for example. They could have been more engaging, more welcoming, and better at communicating.




Excellent day, very fun!


This zip line tour was worth the trip out there. Staff was great very personable. My children really enjoyed.


Guides were fantastic


Again, had an amazing time. Guides were lots of fun and amazing people. Food was amazing.


Enjoyed all of the zip lines, bridges, and staff. I'm sure there was more wildlife to see when pointed out by the guides, but when you're zipping along you don't notice many as the zipping is moving pretty fast.


These guys were great! Safety was followed and I never once felt unsafe. Their personalities and candid demeanor made the trip so much fun. The meal at the end was to die for!


The provided lunch was the best food I had in all of Costa Rica!


I loved it.


This was my favorite activity. The zip lining itself was thrilling, and the guides were SO nice and SO much fun! They were some really great people. Definitely something great to experience.


I loved the experience and the staff.


They were so much fun (the guides) - and the views of the zip line were beautiful. The lunch they had waiting was very good. Great people!


Those guides were awesome. So funny and fun. Extremely glad we addd this excursion. The food was also pretty awesome.


I can't say enough about the guides - every single one was kind, funny, and encouraging. This was an amazing experience. (And the lunch was delicious, too!)


I was nervous because of a fear of heights, but these guides were so good that I had a great time. You can tell that safety is #1 with them. (there is one place where you have to walk over narrow boards that I would change)


The guides on this tour were AMAZING. So much fun. We put our lives in their hands and yet we felt completely secure and safe at all times. The lunch was absolutely divine at this location.


wonderful company. Use them again.


I would go again. The guides were great.


There were sooo many people on this tour with us. It was fun. But took a very long time in the heat because we had to wait In long lines.
