Today you can mix it up with some of the best adventures Costa Rica has to offer including: zip lining, a Tarzan swing, hanging bridges, rappelling, waterfalls, rock wall climbing, horseback riding, hot springs, sauna, mud bath and a delicious traditional hot meal. All in one amazing day!
Arriving by the provided transportation, you will be met by your certified, professional bilingual guides who will introduce you to the thrill of ziplining. After safety instructions you will be helped into a harness for this aerial exploit as you become familiar with the use of the zip line equipment. Galvanized stainless steel cables will safely transport you for approximately 3 kilometers, traveling up to speeds of 60 kilometers per hours.
Five of the twelve platforms were strategically built so you can land in the most extraordinary trees as well as zipping over the gorgeous forest canopy. Bring your camera to photograph the awesome scenery from your unique tree top vantage point or while walking on the hanging bridges.
Next you’ll have the chance to be connected to a secure elastic rope where you can feel the adrenaline as you freely swing through the forest in the wildly popular Tarzan swing.
Your helpful guides will then assist as you discover the exhilarating experience of rappelling the waterfalls using bolted down ferrata safety cables. Last but not least of your morning activities will be climbing a challenging 20 meter rock wall.
Now you should be ready for a Costa Rican “typical” meal, which includes a variety of delicious locally prepared traditional foods.
After lunch, you can choose to hike or go by horseback to the waterfalls. Either way you’ll be traversing through tropical forests and open meadows, completely surrounded by beautiful scenery.
Topping off the day, you’ll return to the Colorado River where you can enjoy soaking in volcano heated hot pools and immersing yourself in natural mineralized mud. Here by the river, there are changing rooms and an assistant who will show you the spa and sauna area, where you might want to spend a few minutes to open your pores, before covering yourself in the mineral rich clay mud.
If you want you can playfully paint your partner using pots of mud, wait for it to dry, then shower clean before luxuriating in the hot spring waters. Your energy infused muscles will thank you for the chance to lay back and relax after an exciting adventure filled day.

Our guide, Mauricio, was absolutely phenomenal. Very friendly, knowledgeable, and really helped us have the best time at the ranch. He gets 12/10.
Bryan was incredible. Very knowledgeable and shared so much information.
Such a great day- we really enjoyed it!!! We were the only ones on our tour with our specific guides. The ziplining views were incredible and we loved that we went through canyons with rivers under us. The mud baths at the hot springs were great too.
The guides we had for this tour were exceptional! Micheal was knowledgeable and engaging. This was a favorite and would recommend to anyone with a hint of adventure.
Loved the zip lines. We wanted to tube, but were told that was closed. The horse back riding was boring. The rest was fun though.
Everything about the tour was amazing from the zip line to the food
I'd have to say that the staff working the zipline made the customers feel like they were going through an assembly line at times. It seemed overcrowded at times and our personal tour guide was amazing friendly went above and beyond to go and get us while we were hanging out and Hot Springs so we didn't miss our lunch, what a guy!
Everything was fantastic! I enjoyed this tremendously. There was good time for each event. The food was fantastic. The guides were through in their explanations and instructions and they had plenty of cold water available to refresh us.
