Canopy Tour (Zip-Lining)
A highlight of Costa Rica is zip-lining! We’d recommend considering venturing through the jungle and it’s lush green canopy like Jane or Tarzan, with a “hoot” and a “holla” and maybe a little “aahhhahahahaaa”! With complete and utter safety in mind at all times, the always fun and playful guides will help you swing like a monkey from some of the longest cables in the Central Pacific. Shrieks of laughter and big smiles are caught on camera by visitors of ALL ages. If you’re 6 or 60, you will have a blast! The first cable often provokes nervous giggles but soon thereafter, you’ll be whizzing down through the rain forest like the little white faced monkeys! Transportation to the Canopy tour can be provided for an extra fee! This may be the highlight of your trip so don’t miss it!
If at all possible, this adventure is best shared with friends and family! Gails of laughter will echo off the walls of the canyon as you barrel down the class II and III rapids of the Savegre river. The countryside and awesome panoramic views change slowly as you wind through sparsely inhabited valleys in the mountains. Just when you think this trip couldn’t offer anymore your guide will pull over for a few minute break & photo shoot in the waterfalls! This isolated boat access waterfall is a must see and makes this trip different from any other white water rafting tour you’ve previously done. The tour ends at a local soda (Costa Rican diner) where you can view and purchase your day’s photo shoot and quench your thirst!
There are lessons for children or adults. We strive to ensure the group size is small and each person has their own instructor! Kids and adults build their confidence by learning the ropes in the white water then “graduate” to the break. Whatever level of physical condition you are in, the opportunity to learn the basics and feel like a “pro”, is an unforgettable experience. Most lessons are approximately 2 hours long and include the board rental and water.
Manuel Antonio National Park
Everyone loves this park as it gives you a (half) day of nature hiking as well as the opportunity to flop in a lounge chair afterwards and enjoy a little beach time with the monkeys! Quepos is the coastal town beside Manuel Antonio National park, one of the most visited parks in Costa Rica. In order to actually see the monkeys and the sloths and the other fascinating animals in this protected area, you should arrive around 8:00 a.m. Also, the park is closed on Mondays… we learned that one the hard way! Super educational day amongst a stunning back drop… trust us, the photos you take here may become your wall art back home!
